Now, by no means am I a professional photog, but I strive to get better with each hike we do. I use my phone to take all of our pictures because I like to carry the least amount possible. I can also take videos with my phone which I like to add to by blog. I keep my phone handy in my hand or pocket and it is always ready when I see something I want to capture. This also goes along with the idea of taking pictures instead of souvenirs from your hike.
