Tips for Better iPhone Photography

I have an iPhone and I like it. I have a camera and I like to take pictures. What I don't like is taking pictures with my iPhone.

I have nothing against the technology itself; I've seen plenty of other people's phone photos that are really quite wonderful.  No, the blame is mine.  I haven't  spent a lot of time learning the camera's capabilities and therefore have been less than satisfied with the results when I do snap a quick shot.  There's a lack of clarity, a muddiness to them, that's just not satisfactory.

Therefore, given that I believe in using things to their full potential and that I often don't have my 'real' camera on hand when I need it,  I've decided it's time to figure out what I'm doing wrong. Or at least how I can do better.

With only a few weeks of winter remaining (I am throwing that out to the universe in a hopeful state of mind), and given the challenges presented by this season for photographers,  I thought it might be a good topic with which to begin my training.

I discovered these websites that provide some useful tips —  first on how to perfect my iPhone photography skills, then on how to make my iPhone winter photos picture perfect.
