Photographing circuits

I’m writing some embedded development content and having great fun doing it. I need to take pictures of the hardware during construction. In the past I’d be reaching for a proper camera, but nowadays I use the camera on my phone. The quality is very good and a tiny phone camera has a depth of field that makes sure that everything in the picture is nice and sharp. It’s also rather nice that the pictures on the phone are sent straight up to my Onedrive camera roll where I can just pull them out and drop them into the document I’m writing.
