Shooting and editing photos with the iPhone 5 and Photoshop Express

A decade ago I spent thousands of dollars and spent months shooting, developing, and editing photos for a book I was working on. It was an incredibly expensive, incomprehensibly wasteful process. Now I get not only less expensive but better photos with the iPhone 5s and apps in my pocket. and that's nothing compared to what Robin Jasmer is getting with his iPhone 5 and Photoshop Express:

I am French and live in Denmark. I take pictures with my iPhone 5 and edit them with photoshop express app on the iPhone. I don't use a Mac or PC to edit my pictures. I do it as a hobby and amateur, during my free time. I started about a year ago and I enjoy it a lot.

John Gruber's take on Daring Fireball is profound:

Lost amidst all the talk of "phones" is the fact that Apple has become one of the leading camera companies in the world. It's a new ballgame when your camera itself serves as your editing device.

Come Monday I'll be sitting in the WWDC 2014 keynote with a Canon 5D Mark III and 70-200mm Sigma lens. I bet I won't even need that in a few more years.
