Photography has always been a passion of mine. The ability to capture not only moments but scenes and settings that are appealing to ones eyes is what continuously attracts me to it. Visually it can be a seperate form of story telling; one that is perceptibly compelling. With unlimited scenarios at hand and copious mediums for use there truly is never a dull moment in the depiction of such tales.

I get a lot of questions about the kind of equipment I use, be it on the blog or shared on social media channels like Instagram. Most are utterly surprised when I tell them it's just my iPhone camera.

A few years ago the iPhone wasn't exactly the pinnacle of photography, and having previously lost a 50D circa 2010 (not a great year for me) I made do. Fortunately Apple drastically enhanced their phone's camera capabilities making capturing quality images effortless (and essentially voiding the imminent need to upgrade my misplaced Canon).

While my iPhone 6S takes impeccable photos, of course it doesn't hurt to get a little assistance with the help of photo editing apps. Apps like Fotor who make adjusting and fine tuning your images uncomplicated and all without losing valuable image quality. I was recently introduced to this app and given the chance to review it. I've been playing around with it now for over one week and have to admit I am really enjoying its versatility and ease. You simply import a photo or capture a scene straight from the app itself and edit away. There are numerous functions at your disposal, from the basic necessities like contrast, brightness, highlights and saturation to features like "enhancement" which automatically adapts your image to perfection and "scenes" which modifies tones and lighting naturally to correspond with the image subject.

Truthfully this is my favorite feature of the app. There's numerous scenarios at your disposal, from landscape to portrait. My preferred setting is the latter which gives my images a soft, yet contrasting glow. If you're wondering about filters, of course there's an ever growing selection to peruse and apply. Fotor also have an exclusive community set up with daily photographic challenges you can submit work to. There's even a feature to create magazine type collages. This is actually perfect for blog posts if you want to seamlessly incorporate text to images. Stay tuned because this will no doubt be making a regular occurrence on here now.

Fotor aren't simply limited to an app. They also have an online service where you can also create cards, banners, posters and even YouTube channel art. Again, effortless to use and create straight from your desktop. If your curious for more, check out and download Fotor now.

  5. Now you don't actually need a camera to take good photos. Mobile phone cameras have improved a lot. Good photography is also about how you see things as well. I haven't heard this app before, I will check it out! x

  10. Seems like a really cool app! I don't do much editing on my photos unless it's on instagram where I add a filter, but I'm starting to get a little bored with that now!

    Hope you're having a wonderful week :)

  14. I've got quite a few professional photographers as friends and the main lesson I've always learned from them is that the equipment you're taking photos with isn't even that important, it's mostly what and how you capture it, everything else can make the photo éven better but you can have the greatest camera in the world, if you don't have the right vision, the photo won't be as magical. So I'm not surprised to know you take most photos with your iPhone. You have a good eye! And that's the beginning of it all.

  15. Wooow, that app sounds really amazing. I believe you got to have an aesthetic vision in order to take great photos. So i'm not surprised for reading that you take the pics with your iphone cause you have the right vision.
    Anyway, i need to try Fotor.So curious about it right now.
    Enjoy your weekend, dear.

  16. I've got to find this app! Your pics are great

  19. Great post. I use VSCO but I feel sometimes the quality gets lost...will definitely have to check out Fotor!


  20. Good to know you also use your iPhone camera! That's what I do too because iPhones have really stepped up their game when it comes to camera quality. It definitely makes capturing photos way easier because you always have a good camera on hand. I love using photo editing apps on my phone because it makes it easier to edit on the go. I've tried out this app before and it's soo good! I really like the functions it has.

  23. Motor is also one of my favourite apps!!


  24. I don't have an iPhone because I had over 64 g of memory used up in my last phone. Now they have more memory, so it'll probably be doable next time I want to replace my phone. I rarely ever use my phones apps to edit, but I use snapseed and vsco when the lighting isn't so good in my photos, or there's too much yellow.


  25. I love reading when people share their experience about photo techniques! I shall try Foto too!


  26. Wow, I will need to try out this app. Your pictures are amazing. Thanks for sharing.
