It’s not why you think.

As a photographer you should consider adding Prisma to your arsenal of tools you use to improve the quality of your photographs. No, not so you can create fine pieces of artwork and share them with everyone and marvel at your beautiful images (although feel free to do that if you want.) No, the purpose of using Prisma as a photographer is to improve your composition skills.

By using Prisma it allows you to get out of the gear chase, to not worry about getting every setting just perfect. It allows you to just focus on finding an image with a good composition.

Don’t judge, I’m imitating an imperial officer.

Prisma doesn’t care about low-res front facing cameras.

Prisma doesn’t care about blurry night shots.

Prisma doesn’t care about tons of light that makes it near impossible to find definition.

Even photos that are still otherwise nice can be used to help you understand what works about those photos and why they are appealing.

By trying the variety of filters you can even focus on different elements.

What I’m getting at is you shouldn’t consider Prisma a tool for editing or publishing but use it to educate yourself on how to compose a photo with different elements like light and patterns and positioning your subject in the frame.
