    Think With Filters in Mind

    The great thing about smartphone photography is the ease of which you have to process your captured image. While it might not be true that every photograph looks better with a filter, it is certainly true that filters can add interest to an otherwise boring photo. That said you shouldnt simply think oh well Ill just add a filter to it to make it awesome instead think that would look really cool with this filter! and then shoot your photo accordingly.
