How many of your photographs are awards worthy? You probably haven't considered the possibility so here's some food for thought. Photography contests are a great way to get exposure, showcase your talent and have a real shot at making a difference. Photographs are such a powerful medium that dozens of contests are held around the world for almost every category.
It is a common misconsumption that you need an advanced DSLR camera to perfect your skills as a photographer and an artist. Since the release of the iPhone 2-megapixel camera, the world of photography underwent a major transformation. Each generation of iPhones improves the resolution of photos and introduces new editing apps, giving everyone an opportunity to try their hand at photography. Having an iPhone on you at all times easily replaces the need to carry a DSLR around; it’s convenient and the end results of your photographs are always sophisticated.
