Photo highlights with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Hand me a new cell phone to try, and I’ll probably end up playing with the camera within a few minutes–it’s my go-to feature because first and foremost I love taking pictures. The technology on mobile devices has also come a long way in the last five years, and they now offer impressive options compared to a standard camera. So when I had the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to play with for a month, I ended up shooting a lot of photos and videos–over 1300 photos, and close to an hour of video.

Getting snappy with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3

This summer I’ve been trying something new, at least for me. I used to cart around my big, full-frame camera everywhere, but I’m now trying to just take my phone with me everywhere to snap memorable life-moment sort of photos. These are the kinds of photos I take because I like to look back and see random things I did with my family, or other adventures covering events for The GATE.
