You Know That Little Camera In Your Smartphone? It Can Do This And It’s Gorgeous!

It’s amazing to see the stories we’re now capable of telling with a device that fits in our pocket containing a camera about the size of a dime (or maybe it’s even smaller now, I’m running out of currency/technology scale comparisons). One of the primary champions of photography taken with iPhones is the iPhone Photography Awards which just announced the winners of their 2014 competition.

This is the 7th year of the IPPAWARDS, a global contest for photographs taken only with iPhones. This year includes 54 photographers hailing from 17 countries who competed in 17 different categories. These are the top three winners and some of our favorites, but you can see much more on their website. (via Tim Cook)

With more of us carrying smartphones capable of such great camera technology, we should all aspire to take photographs that convey the feeling of each setting. Share this with your friends…especially those that take a lot of pictures with their phone.
