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> What makes the iPhone the perfect device right now for creatives, especially photography? It's the camera in your pocket, it's the computer in your pocket, and it's your printing press. You have this with you all of the time. It's really democratized the idea of photography. What I love about the iPhone is that it has stripped me of all the things, technical things that I had to think about or forced myself to think about, and what this device has done is make me think about the content and the story.
What we are going to do is go on this creative journey and we are going to start on the streets of LA. You will get to see my approach and maybe some of the things that are going on in my head as I shoot. We will break it down and bring it back into the studio. You will be able to see some of the apps I use, some of the approaches. You'll be able to see how really critical it is to play around with apps. We will also talk about how storytelling is one of those tools, one of those skills that if you learn it, it will help your stories, your images, really stick in people's minds.
We will also talk about how important it is to then share those images that you take, and finally, we will bring you to the 1197, the very first iPhoneography conference. It is the first of its kind, where all of these iPhoneographers met and shared secrets, tips, tricks, and ideas. This is my favorite camera. It's also become my box of crayons, a place for me to experiment with my photography, to kind of color outside of the lines.
What I hope to do is share with you some of my tips and tricks of iPhone photography.
