In this course, Richard Koci Hernandez celebrates the art of iPhoneography—how to shoot, enhance, and share photos with an Apple iPhone. The course covers an actual iPhone photo shoot and includes details on how to select and edit photos using a variety of iOS apps and how to interact with the vibrant iPhone photo community by sharing photos using the popular Instagram app. In a bonus chapter, Koci and a lineup of iPhone photography enthusiasts and journalists meet at the 1197 conference in San Francisco to discuss shooting techniques, photo-enhancement tips, and inspiration in the art of photographic storytelling.
Richard Koci Hernandez> I want to share with you a few last tips and tricks about gear before we finish up this title. One is, is that you really want to treat your iPhone just like a professional treats his or her professional camera. Every professional photographer has a camera bag, and inside that camera bag we want to put things that are going to help make our iPhoneography better. For example, make sure you have a good case. For me a good case is one that has a lanyard so that I don't drop my tool. A second thing that's really, really important is if you're going to go on the street, you're going to be on a trip, you're going to be on vacation, you want to have extra juice, you want to have extra power.
That's why I always carry extra power with me. You may also be inclined to do a time lapse video or do something that requires a tripod. Every photographer has a tripod, whether they use it all the time or they rarely use it, but when you want it, it's better to have it. Lenses are great. If you want a wide- angle shot or you want to work some macro photography, there are plenty of lensing options for you to use out there. And now that I've shown you my approach to iPhone photography, there is a whole community waiting out there for you to discover more apps, techniques, and gear.
Hopefully, what I've done here for you is just fan that creative spark to get you out into the world and to discover iPhone photography for yourself.
