­­­We all know that photography is one of the common hobbies of every blogger, and it’s becoming a lot more feasible to take good photos with the rise of smartphones, especially iPhones. Having a phone with a good camera quality, we are becoming more eager to take photos and post it on our social media using the provide smartphone apps.

iPhoneography is the art of creating photos with an iPhone. This is a style of mobile photography that differs from all other forms of digital photography in that images are both shot and processed on the iOS device. (

We gather some simple tips to help you, Nuffnangers to take superb photos using your iPhones (and other smartphones)

1.    Study Angles
Angles can be tricky. You must know and explore different angles of taking a photo.  You can easily improve your shots by finding right and interesting angle.

2.    Play with light and contrast
Of course you don’t want to make your photos look flat. One trick is to include shadows. Shadows make a photo look more interesting. You can always experiment with the brightness and contrast while editing your photo using a smartphone app.

3.    Be sharp 
Always know the focal point of your photo before taking the shot. Sharpness also adds to the depth of the photo. It gives a realistic texture to the image that can capture one’s attention. Another tip is to switch on HDR settings when taking a landscape photo.

Use smartphone apps
There are a lot of smartphone apps that you can use to enhance your photos. These apps make editing and improving your photos easier and more accessible. Vscocam is one of the favorite apps of smartphone users because of its available presets that make photos more powerful and interesting. Afterlight (a paid app) has also amazing filters that you can use for your photos. Snapseed is also one useful app to enhance brightness and contrast of your photos.

5.    Be expressive
Taking photos is an expression of one’s identity as a photographer. Don’t hold back on expressing and sharing a part of yourself to the World Wide Web through your photos. Be fearless and creative on taking the shots.

Hello Nuffnangers!

How about a dose of Vitamin Sea for a cause?

Help free our Manila Bay of trash by volunteering at the 2nd annual SM by the Bay Coastal Cleanup Drive (SMBCC) which will be held at the 1.3-kilometer stretch of the SM by the BAY Central Park this Saturday, September 19, 2015. Mounted by SM by the BAY, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Cares, this successful coastal cleanup which started last year is done in support of the International Coastal Cleanup program of the environmental non-profit group, Ocean Conservancy.

This year’s bigger and better coastal cleanup is supported by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Philippine Coastguard and the local government of Pasay.

The event is expected to attract hundreds of volunteers from different private and non-government organizations and you could be one too! Participants of the Coastal Cleanup can register for the event as early as 5:30 am.

Last year, the Coastal Cleanup drive was able to collect 2,454,500 kilos of trash, including 2,293 pieces of slippers and shoes, 1,813 pieces of food wrappers, 1,495 pieces of take away containers, 998 bamboo and wood, 882 beverage bottles, and 605 cigarette butts. This year, with an even larger area activated for the cleanup, more participants, partners and volunteers were invited to join.

Similarly, and as part of the International Coastal Cleanup program, participants of the cleanup drive will be again asked to document the trash they collect, with the data gathered to be sent directly to Ocean Conservancy.

The SM by the BAY Coastal Cleanup is an annual environmental awareness event wherein the coastal waters of Manila Bay will be celebrated and invigorated, not just for a day, but it will be an active drive that is promoted and supported the whole year-round.

With the continuing support of its local partners and sponsors, SM by the BAY is committed to the environment through raising awareness of ocean conservation, promoting community-based involvement, and improving the quality of the immediate area of Pasay City.

So, guys and girls, ready those shades and sunblock. Time to clear the coast!
