Snowmen at Kind Coffee in Estes Park, Colorado.

One of the things I find myself saying while teaching photography classes is: “the best camera you have is the one you have with you.” I primarily photograph with an SLR, but carrying one of my bulky Nikon D300 or D800 cameras around constantly isn’t always feasible. On a morning coffee stop earlier this year I saw these guys outside in the chilly Estes Park weather. Thinking this would be a routine stop, I hadn’t brought one of my Nikons along but I did have a camera on my Samsung Galaxy mobile phone. Not wanting to miss the scene, I went ahead and used the phone to get this shot. It didn’t turn out too badly! Even if you only have an iPhone, Samsung or other mobile device, take advantage of its features and always be on the lookout for fun photo opportunities!
