Digital storytelling today...

More photos and videos are taken by smartphones and tablets now than by all the world’s traditional cameras combined – after all, the best camera is the one you have with you right? Known collectively as 'iPhoneography', this is a new field of often quick and dirty snaps that when combined with the amazing range of editing options provided by apps has seen a new stye of mobile storytelling to emerge.

Workshops in mobile imaging are available from JNXYZ.Education that will help you make #Infopics or take your quick snaps and videos to new levels by showing you a series of simple creative steps you can take using free apps. While this is an incredibly pleasurable process in itself – you might also just end up with photo and video editing skills that can benefit your school, college, uni, business or blog as well.

Jonathan Nalder has been an app-noxious so and so ever since the first iPhone came out – especially where photography apps are concerned. Perhaps the best way to find out more about how Jonathan loves to capture the Australian landscape differently is to view his Instagram or Flickr accounts.
