It’s World Photo Day! Today, we celebrate the great art of photography by giving out a few tips and tricks on mobile photography.

But before we move forward, you might ask… why celebrate World Photo Day?

According to The Economic Times:

World Photo Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic process developed by Frenchmen Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicephore Niepce in 1837.

On January 9, 1839, the French Academy of Sciences announced the Daguerreotype process. On August 19, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “free to the world”.

This day is not only dedicated to those who love the craft and are passionate about the craft, but those who are willing to learn about taking photographs, too. While there are a lot of DSLR enthusiasts nowadays but let’s face it – mobile photography is the new medium.

Our phones are very accessible and the latest innovations on mobile technology allowed this one single device to do almost everything. We own a phone, we have the world in our hands. Gone were the days that mobile phones are just for calls and texts. We can do almost everything on it. Even access our very computers remotely through our phones.

One feature that every new phone mobile always boasts about is the camera. It’s not just a battle of rear cameras anymore. Nor is it on front cameras to take better selfies. We have phones now with dual cameras with different functions and capacities.

Indeed, phone photography has become so wide, it seems like everyone wants to do it. And if you’ve only just begun learning the art, here are a few tips and tricks you can do to take better photos on your phones.

Looks like we’re all in it for a surprise from our beloved Snapchat! The social media platform has announced that they might possible launch a new feature soon. Soon enough, we’ll be seeing games in Snapchat.

Yes, you got that right. Games. In. Snapchat.

According to Cheddar, there have been talks that Snapchat is creating a whole new gaming platform inside the application itself. While this is not new for any social media application, Snap Inc. is looking into gaining back (or more) users to the app, and hopefully, additional revenue for the company.

While all of these are still plans at hand, here’s what we know and what we think of this move.
