There’s immersion journalism, and then there’s what photographer Meg Roussos did. For Roussos, now 22, the adventure began her freshman year of college at Ohio University in Athens. The photographer-in-training was shooting a project when she overheard a woman saying she had to pick up her daughter at her friend’s school bus.

Top 5 Android photo apps that will help you succeed on Clashot

We probably don’t need to tell you that one smartphone feature that has undergone rapid advancement over the last couple of years and continues to greatly improve with each generation is image sensing. High end and even mid-range smartphones are now equipped with much more efficient and adept sensors, optics and software, which directly translates to pictures that can and do rival many entry level point-and-shoot cameras. Mobilography is now becoming less of a hobby and more of an honest toil providing a viable supplemental income to those who know how to get the most out of their hardware.

Suffice it to say, smartphone cameras are only getting better, but the camera software on our phones doesn’t always complement the all too capable hardware. Maybe the software optimization is poor or some important features are lacking or missing altogether… Fortunately, there are quite a few third party apps out there that can supercharge your phone’s camera and help you make some money on Clashot.

Camera ZOOM FX ICON  Camera ZOOM FX has been around for years and for the majority of that time it has been preinstalled on many of the numerous devices we’ve had our hands on. It recently received a massive overhaul and in the process became much more user friendly. But the same features that make Camera ZOOM so great are still there: dozens of effects and most add-ons you can download from Google play. There are several shooting modes such as burst, timer, stable shot, time laps or collage. On the outside Camera ZOOM effects are easy to use and quick but for those who want to break out the filters, effects and other goodies this app is packed to the brim. It’s $2.99 at the Google play and the add-ons are free.
