Taking Everyday Photos to the Next Level

Whether you're a parent, a fur-parent, or a culinary wizard with 3,000 followers obsessed with your signature hardboiled eggs, camera phones have completely changed the photography game. Every moment of our lives can now, for better or worse, be documented with maddening detail. Unfortunately, the ability to take an infinite number of photos means we're often careless with our subjects, and destined to delete most of our poorly lit or out of focus images.
