I’ll bet you know someone who loves shooting on their iPhone, and they take it pretty seriously and take tons of photos with it, but you know they’re not going to go out and buy a heavy, expensive DSLR or mirrorless camera and a bunch of lenses. I wrote this book for them. It’s called “The iPhone Photography Book” and it’s about how they can get professional-looking images from the camera they’re already carrying around with them.
What I did in this book is take all the same principles and techniques I’ve been teaching to serious DSLR and mirrorless photographers about lighting, about landscapes, about travel and portrait photography, and composition, and all the stuff that really matters, but everything is done from the perspective of using the iPhone as your only camera (and all the examples and photos in the book are all taken with an iPhone).
Here’s a list of the chapters:
Chapter One: iPhone Camera Essentials
Chapter Two: How to Compose Like a Pro
Chapter Three: Photographing People
Chapter Four: Posing People To Look Their Very Best
Chapter Five: Travel & Landscape Photography with the iPhone
Chapter Six: How to Shoot Other Cool Stuff
Chapter Seven: iPhone Camera Tips & Tricks
Chapter Eight: Organizing Your Photo Library
Chapter Nine: Editing Your Images
Chapter 10: Incredible Apps To Take Your Photos To The Next Level
Chapter 11: Awesome iPhone Accessories
Chapter 12: iPhone Photo Recipes
As you’ve heard me say countless times on The Grid, the quality of shots you can take with today’s iPhone is just stunning, and writing this book proved the point to me again in a very real way — for most folks, this is the future of photography, and the things Apple is doing (and working on), are just jaw-dropping. I am still shocked at what you can create on an iPhone once you know how, and I’m sharing it all in this book.
The book is already on fire!
It just came out (available right now on Kindle from Amazon.com where it’s the #1 Hot New Release in photography), or get it for any device direct from the publisher Rocky Nook (they’re offering 35% off right now when you apply this code at checkout: SKiPhone35), but the print version is coming in just a few weeks (printing takes longer than…well…just about anything).
Order a copy right now on Kindle, or pre-order and get the print version in just a few weeks, and remember – you’ll be a hero to the friend or loved one you get this for. They will thank you for helping them along on their photographic journey. (Hey, ya know, Valentine’s Day is this weekend. Just sayin’.)
Have a great weekend, everybody. Pull out that iPhone and make some great images! :)
P.S. We announced the official instructor roster for the upcoming Wildlife Photography Conference. What an incredible team of teachers! Here’s the link.
