India - A Journey With Camera Awesome For Android

To challenge myself, and break out of my iPhoneography comfort zone, I took a Samsung Galaxy S4 equipped with Camera Awesome on a recent trip to India to document the daily lives of the Indian people as well as the schools where I was teaching photography. The results of my mobile experiment far exceeded my expectations. Whether it be walking a busy street market in Old Delhi, or watching the warm Asian sun light up the Taj Mahal, I often found myself reaching into my pocket for the S4 instead of using the 5D Mark III attached to my camera strap.

I also wrote a post for SmugMug highlighting my Top 10 Travel Photography tips.
