Mobile tech: photo taking & sharing

As I mentioned, I have only just scored an iPad for work, so I am new to iPad photography. The few iPad photos I have taken have been okay quality & I’m keen to keep practising. I do take many photos with my phone though. I love the convenience of having a camera in your pocket, and being able to share pics instantly. Up until yesterday I have been having serious troubles using packet data on my phone for nearly 3 months. I have been too lazy to investigate, and have just used wifi at home & work. However, this has meant I’ve nearly stopped sharing phone pics. The problem is now fixed; I hadn’t updated the software. D’oh!

Here’s a phone photo I’m quite happy with:

I use phone and iPad photos posted to work twitter, Facebook and Tumblr accounts to promote library events & engage customers. This works! Of course, taking photos then posting in real time is the bonus of mobile tech. For example, I tweeted a cute teddy photo to amp people up for our recent Teddy Bears’ Picnic. I also take quick snaps of new anime & manga as they hit my desk, then upload to work social media accounts. And sometimes to my own if I’m especially excited about new things :)

How do you use mobile tech photography in your life? And at your work?
