What are the challenges with shooting with your phone?: Low light is still a challenge, though vastly improved with each generation.

Name your favourite things about this kind of photography?: I love how inconspicuous the phone is, even now when everyone is aware of smartphone cameras. It's still the least-intrusive way to capture life as it happens.
