The great thing about my cellphone is that I can actually get macros shots with it that I can't get without a macros lens using my Rebel. I can get right up on my subject, practically touching it, and once I figure out the timing of the auto-focus I'd have an awesome shot. Another key to this is you have to have your camera function set at the highest resolution. Which with my phone left me with no zoom functions at all. It was well worth the trade. I can easily compose a shot, it's not as easy to fix the resolution. Especially when I do all my editing with picnik basic. I think I may upgrade that soon. I would love to have Photoshop, but there are other things to spend money on. Especially when I can do some great things for $25 per year. That's so more in my budget right now.
The cellphone days were very important in my photography development. This is when I proved to myself that there is more talent in me than just snapping off family memories. I'm still trying to figure out how to get my foot in the door, and make a buck off of it. Hopefully, I can figure this one out soon so I can prove that my hubby made a good investment choice.
