IT WAS NEARLY two years ago that I switched over into the iPhone realm and my life as a traveler changed completely. As a an avid iPhoneographer, or “fauxtographer” as I like to call it, I believe that what can be created from photos taken on iPhones and then altered with various photo applications can really give professional photographers with expensive cameras and photo editing programs a run for their money.
