I stopped taking pictures with my camera and now only use my iPhone (4s) camera. Sometimes I will turn the flash on but motly I leave it on "auto". It's more about the light you have in the room. Natural light is always best but not direct sun. I've enlarged and printed my pictures so I know it's good resolution. It all depends on the kind of phone you have. My sister's Blackberry jut doesn't take a great picture (or is it my sister? Hmmm!)

Yup, I agree with Theresaf. I have a new and expensive Canon Powershot Camera, and I still favor my IPhone for pictures.

 

I did have a BlackBerry and it took horrible photos which is why I got the new Camera. And now that I have an IPhone, my camera just sits and collects dust.

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.

Very possible now with such good cameras on phones. I took a class at lynda.com on mobile photography with this guy and so I now know you can. Of course I still like my DSLR, but they're so big to take around.

icon_eek.gif I checked out lynda.com after reading this post and I've been on that site for HOURS. It's like Craftsy with a college degree. I got my DSLR in the mail today and I'm so glad they have photography courses (thank you Jesus). Between CC, Craftsy, and now lynda (and Lord knows how many other educational sites and DVDs I've invested in) I'm going to be oh, so fancy with my cakes and super awesome photos.

 

OP you might want to check out that site. You'll be hooked.

Every year I pay the $250 membership at lynda.com. I'm a graphic designer and I have to keep on top of the software i use, that keeps on being upgraded.

The photography classes with Ben Long are amazing. And there's also a product photography class that's good. My boyfriend is into photography, that's how I know.

You have to be very disciplined to get your money's worth though. Your membership, unlike craftsy's classes, is not forever. But it's really like taking classes at a university. They only have the best. This long holiday weekend I'm taking illustrator 6, about 30 hours of training, and I won't let anything stop me!

Yes Ben Long is awesome. Had to go back to the Foundation of Photography courses before continuing with the DSLR class. Even saw one course on food photography. Thanks for bringing up that site imagenthatnj.
