Picture of Amazing Smartphone Pictures
It's happened to all of us.  There is an amazing sunset, beautiful waterfall, or just plain cool photo opportunity, but your super-awesome-also-cooks-dinner 3 zillion megapixel DSLR is nowhere to be found.  Or, maybe you don't have a DSLR, but you just HAVE to get a snap of that adorable kitty, or you want to enter a photo contest.  Well, never fear, I will show you how to take great pictures with your phone!

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need
First off, I admit, I live out in the country surrounded by beautiful scenery and lots of opportunity for great pictures, which is just a tiny bit unfair;)

You will need:
  • a phone, iPod, or other low quality digital photo-taking device (mine has a whopping 3 megapixels and isn't even technically a smartphone;)
  • a magnifying glass
  • photo editing software (taken care of in step 4)
  • something awesome to take pictures of
  • a computer
  • a little creativity (not pictured as mine was taking the photo)
Well, if I didn't scare you off with the last requirement, let's get started:)
