Finally Fall in Georgia, US
After living in Maryland for thirty years, with leaves changing in huge swaths in September and October, I was dismayed to not see these beautiful harbingers of winter in Atlanta, until now. Enjoy.

Chase Jarvis once famously said that "The best camera is the one you have with you." And which type of camera do most of us carry with us most of the time? Our mobile phones of course! The cameras in mobile phones are getting more sophisticated by the day and it is getting more difficult to differentiate a mobile phone photo from a photo shot with a regular camera. Our phones have basically become an extension of ourselves, and since it is so easy to whip out your phone to take a photo, let's see how creative you can get this week! Work with your mobile phone's limitations - make sure that you have enough light (use studio lights or GO OUTSIDE!) and avoid using any kind of digital zoom. Shooting at night or in low light conditions (indoors) with a phone camera, will NOT get you the most quality image. But also work with your smart phone's advantages. A smart phone can generaly take really good macro/close-up shots and because of its ubiquitous nature, may also allow you to take candid photos in public. There are numerous smartphone applications you can download that allow you to edit on the go, create HDR photos, or shoot with a slower shutter speed. Have fun with it!
