For this challenge I looked for a shot that would be nearly impossible with a DSLR. I used a super wide angle lens on my Pixel 5 in wide mode. I printed a chess board and cut a hole in the center for the lens and put the phone under the board. I used the self-timer to get the pic. Not bad...

I used the Movo SPL-FE Super Fisheye Lense at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08S45WC1X
How many times have you found yourself saying, “Oh, I wish I had my real camera!” and then proceeded to shoot with your phone because you remembered the words: The best camera is the one you have with you. It really is true, and allowing yourself to be challenged by using the phone is the next best step to helping you learn camera phones are a great option! We have hundreds of Framers who submit every week using their phone camera, so while this might be an easy challenge for them, we’ll hope they give themselves an extra challenge with the extra credit. Shot With a Phone will be a great opportunity to learn how to use some of the tools available in many phones today, and you’ll definitely want to check out some of the great apps for editing on your phone. 52Frames is all about learning all we can about photography. While many of us boast of our big lenses and fine bodies (camera bodies!), it's a great lesson to learn to utilize the tools you have at hand - and most of us have a phone most of the time. If you actually don’t own a mobile phone with a camera, maybe you own a tablet. If you don’t own a tablet either, you can get creative and shoot a photo of someone else’s phone camera. Don’t sell your creativity short!
