I’m Carol Conway, and I’ve been obsessed with photography since I was thirteen years old.
Well, I wouldn’t call my beginning real photography. I had about fifty blurry images out of a Kodak disposable camera in 1997, on a New York City trip with my parents.
From there, I loved using a camera, getting to know how they worked, and finding out how to make better shots. I loved being an artist.
And over the last couple of decades, I’ve watched camera technology mutate into something else entirely.
It’s at an all-time peak, and while I don’t think it’s going to stop anytime soon, it is most certainly overwhelmingly powerful in its current state.
I rented, purchased, and used every type of camera you can think of right off the bat. I was in line for new releases, pre-ordering before Amazon was as big as it is now. But I can’t deny one thing:
Our smartphones possess the ability to take designer-level photographs, marketing-level images, and breathtaking high-MP still images that capture a moment in time—I want you to stop for a moment and think about how amazing that is.
With the pocket photography era, as I like to call it, there came new challenges and methods to take better photos.
Here on Pocket Photography, I’m going to teach you all that I know. I’m going to teach you how to use your cameras, unlock their full potential, and get the most glorious still images you’ve ever taken before.
Are you ready?
