Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Challenger’s Choice Brisbane Night on the Street

Mobile photography has really taken off into the stratosphere. Amateur photographers now rely on the phone camera to take all their photos, and "fix" the more obvious photographic mistakes, making a more professional -looking end product. The phone is portable and lightweight and always readily accessible. Sadly, my DSLR sits forlorn on the shelves - a victim of lack of portability and versatility, relegated such as it is, to occasional outings to scenic destinations.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Rule of Thirds

I try to keep in mind the Rule of thirds when taking photographs, but it doesn't always work. My old point and shoot Cannon used to have a grid overlay that I could see in the display, assisting me to frame and compose photographs. The weekly photo challenge asks us to use a SLR or smartphone to produce a Bokeh effect, which is my assignment this week.
