For the past five years, my iPhone has been my favorite camera. It takes excellent pictures, shoots clear video, and becomes a multifaceted editing suite when need be. This portable all-in-one system has become my creative outlet more than anything else in my life. As such, I’ve been learning how to get more out of it, by adding more to it.

The iPhone’s camera does come with some limitations, be it either the hardware or the software, but that doesn’t mean I can’t attempt to push past it. After much trial and error, I’ve found my perfect suite of mobile camera accessories for me. From lenses to apps, there’s surely something on the list here that’ll help you on your mobile photography journey.
