Main session content
A modern camera-phone has become an item one never leaves home without, it has become the most popular device for capturing everyday moments.
I will be taking a look at some of the best Apps and features to improve the photos/videos that you take.
Most of these are free or very low cost, but offer more personal control and settings that were previously the sole preserve of SLRs; mirrorless, bridge and top end compact cameras.
Various aspects of this subject have been requested by many members in the past year.

Let's have fun with photography!
We are all taking more and more pictures, an image is a way of communicating and influencing each other, a way of recording events, historic as well as personal and ultimately a medium of artistic expression. There are many ways and levels to which people wish to improve their skill at taking a picture, and this is dependent on how they wish to use their images but most of all, in our opinion, it should be fun.
