As they say, the best camera is the one you have with you.
The Lunar New Year over the weekend was in full swing, and professional photographers were ready with their iPhones.

Shoot in bright light, and try to put as much distance as possible between your subject or object and the background to create better bokeh, says Singapore photographer Aik Beng Chia.
He added: “If you see someone interesting on the street, go up to them.”
He added that photographers should pay attention to the “golden hour” — the period shortly after sunrise, or before sunset.
“It is your choice of camera angle that creates a sense of depth, perspective and scale,” says Chia.
And of course, what would Chinese New Year be without all the food?
Pay attention to how the light falls on your subject, says Chia.
