It was the first time I felt completely helpless and under-prepared while on vacation. My friends and I spent the first half of our day sightseeing and shopping, and like many tourists, we were taking pictures of everything we saw. Little did I know that clicking my camera’s shutter way too many times almost prevented me from completing my Chicago photo book.
My friend Pat and I were the only two out of the group that wanted to check out the architectural tour. It was absolutely beautiful! I loved learning about Chicago’s history, each building’s story and cruising down the river on a warm, perfect day. However, I quickly discovered that my camera’s battery was getting very low halfway through the tour. After a few more shots, my camera completely died. I started to panic…what was I to do? Luckily, I heard my iPhone! One of my other friends sent me a text message to let Pat and I know where to meet up after the tour was over. Because I was so accustomed to using my camera for all my vacation pictures, I didn’t even think about using my iPhone as a backup.
I started to click away! Many of the pictures I took with my iPhone turned out great. When I was done, I just used my Shutterfly iPhone app and uploaded the photos into my Shutterfly account. After a little editing in Photoshop, the pictures I took with my iPhone made some great detail shots for my photo book. And that’s how my iPhone saved my Chicago trip…and photo book!
