Sweet new iPhone Photography book by DPS.
“The best camera is the one that’s with you.” Chase Jarvis
Know what the two most commonly used cameras now being used on Flickr are?
The iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4.
That’s pretty impressive, considering a phone was a phone was a phone, just a few short years ago.
That’s why Digital Photography School has just released a new book, iPhone Photography – How to Shoot, Edit and Share Great Photographs.
Bet you can’t guess what it’s all about….
Oh, that one was too easy. I won’t make you actually say it.
Before I go any further, let me share with you what I’ve learned in reading iPhone Photography.
Um. Everything. That’s right. Everything. I’m so serious.
I had NO idea I could do so much fantastic, SERIOUS photography with my iPhone camera.
Just take a look at the photo on the left. Took it from my car, while I was waiting in the bank parking lot.
Is the DSLR with interchangeable lenses obsolete?
Not just yet. But I can see the day not far off, when we’ll be able to leave it behind without so much as a backwards glance.
I never thought I would say this, but….I hardly ever take my big guns out of the holster anymore. At least not for my personal shooting.
iPhone Photography has a LOT of fantastic, practical information and phenomenal photos packed into its 106 pages.
The table of contents says it better than I can. The book is basically broken down into three broad categories: Chapter One: Shoot, Chapter Two: Edit and Chapter Three: Share.
