For inspiration, be sure to check out http://www.rubicorno.wordpress.com and  www.painted by the sun.wordpress.com .

Two great sources of information include The Art of iPhone Photography by Dan Burkholder and articles by Susan Tuttle.

I would love feedback and suggestions as to what works and how to improve what doesn’t.
