Creative photography with a mobile phone

Creative photography doesn’t just have to be done on a DSLR. There are also plenty of ways to take great photos on your mobile phone and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the quality and the amazing apps on offer.

In fact with a bit of imagination and creativity you can turn what might look like a mediocre image into a work of art. There are also plenty of competitions for mobile photography including the MBA awards which offer a generous $3k in prize money plus other goodies.

I tend to use the Phototoaster app to sharpen, crop and add certain colour elements to my shots. I also use the fix brush if I need to brighten or darken certain areas of the image.  Here are a few of my favourites that I’ve taken over the last year on my iPhone6 and processed through PhotoToaster.
