These days I usually photograph with a small camera having dedicated knobs – rather than software menus – for aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, and aspect ratio.
But the lens could not focus close enough to the moth resting on the translucent paper that covers the sliding lattice doors of a tea house. I could have stepped back, taken the shot, and cropped the photograph to bring the moth closer into view.
My smartphone, however, was handy and I was pleased that I could get a lot closer without having to pinch outward on the screen to zoom in. But it took more than one shot to get the the latticework aligned.
I still prefer using my dedicated camera, but the smartphone is an ever-present option that is better suited for certain situations.
