I don't own a camera outside of my smartphone. I can't remember the last time I owned a camera and I have never once considered myself a photographer. Outside of snapping some mobile pics to throw on Instagram, my photographer cred is pretty nil.

This being said, after spending last week in Las Vegas for Photoshop World 2015 where I spent more time watching people take photos, snap selfie headshots of themselves and following around Mr. Peter Hurley to watch a master at work, here are my bulletproof idiot tips for taking an amazing headshot.

The entire idea of taking a photo with a phone just seems, so, transient, fleeting and silly.

While I understand the consternation, I also believe a good photo is a good photo regardless of how it was taken. For this reason, I endorse smartphone photography. More specifically, I want to make it better.

In this light, here are some tips for making your mobile photography better.
