It’s been said that, with smartphones, everyone is a photographer. There is a snide implication with that statement—that camera phones aren’t “real” cameras and that the people who use them aren’t “real” photographers. In this book, Robert Fisher proves that today’s Android devices offer cameras that are remarkably powerful and more than capable of producing images that rival those made with more “serious” equipment. In this book, Fisher guides readers through the menus of the Android operating system, helping them to understand how to choose and use out-of-the-box controls for better images. Next, he covers add-on accessories and applications designed to enhance the devices’ capabilities. While the photographic capabilities of the “base” camera are pretty terrific and will meet with rave reviews from many users, the camera really produces images that sing when suited up with DSLR functions, filters, and postproduction effects—all of which Fisher covers with prowess and technical skill.
