The quality of the cameras on cell phones are good enough to capture high resolution imagery for the size of a billboard. Apple's ad campaign proves just that. Apple also launched their own Instagram account featuring photos taken with iPhones.

With our amazing smartphones, it's simple to take great pictures but the perfect lighting can be rather tricky.

Before I purchased any of the other photography products I suggested, I bought this light reflector. With ample natural lighting, the reflector can pick up light sources and redirect it to shine exactly where you want it. The light it produces for your shots will make your amateur pictures look like professional photographs. I especially love that the reflector folds up and fits perfectly in a small bag, making it easy to carry without being too cumbersome. My favorite thing about this product is that the light reflector can be used in five different ways. To get the most use out of this product produce soft light with the white, bright white light with the silver, warm and sunshine vibes lighting with the gold, or the black to dodge light.
