Mobile photography is one of the coolest things today. It didn't come into our lives overnight like the "digital revolution" did, but today we communicate with each other by sending billions of mobile pics every year.
For a photographer, a smartphone with a camera can be a very powerful tool. Up until a few years ago, many wouldn't even think of using a phone for any serious work. All that has changed and today's mobile cameras are capable of delivering impressive results.
But a good camera isn't enough and we're still talking about devices designed for the consumer market, not the photography enthusiast.

Luckily, there are some awesome tips and tricks to boost your mobile photography. I found this very cool video from the folks at COOPH that demonstrates seven awesome hacks anyone with a smartphone can use.
For instance, did it ever occur to you that you can turn the lens on your phone's camera into a macro lens just by placing a drop of water in it? Or that you can use the headphones as a remote and take cool, high quality selfies?
This video explains everything and a lot more with a few simple, real life demonstrations. Enjoy !
