The official iPhoneography Thread

OK... I'm stepping out of the closet.


I'm passionate about photography and I've been smitten with the iPhone Camera.

The day may arrive when a great camera and a great phone share the same real estate but that day is
not yet here.

The iPhone, by all serious photographic standards, pretty much blows as a camera. Still, I have be taken by its' charms... a significant one being that it is the most portable of all my boxes, and therefore can almost always be found in one of my pockets.

Perhaps the biggest of it's charms is the very thing that most consider its' greatest weakness... the fact that it is not a very serious camera. I often think that I get too serious about taking pictures. The iPhone tends to lighten me up a whole bunch. I seem to have fun with it the way i did when i was banging off images with my old Polaroid SX 70, which like the iPhone has some serious limitations.

As i become more acquainted with the iPone camera, i find myself exploiting the camera's weaknesses... hopefully for good. This includes sharpening the images a great deal ... thus exaggerating the grain and making the whole image feel like severely pushed film. I think is it possible to get some wonderful, painterly results with the thing.

So here are a bunch of shots I've taken with the thing.

If you've got images you like, taken with your iPhone, or perhaps techniques for using the thing, post 'em up

I know I'm the not the only fan out here.

Nice shots there. I'll have to look if I ever took anything notable with my phone - most of them fall into the "Dude, check this out!" category.

Hope you don't mind me asking, but how'd you get that effect?

Hey Chisen... not my pic... however... any decent edit suite such as Aperture or Photoshop/lightbox will allow you to brush the blur onto any area of the photo. For those of us not lugging long lenses about or shooting wide open, this is a fine, fine thing.

Pseudo-Tilt shift done in the Instagram app. You can choose between either two fields of blur or a circle blur. Here's two more examples from my phone:

Here's my Warhol-ized Cosby via some iPhone app:

I have no clue what I'm doing with a camera. I appreciate a good shot, but be damned if I know how folks do it.

Always have my phone, so if a pic is to be taken, that'll be it. P&S hasn't been used in a couple of years. Post-prod, I have no clue about.

Here's some I took, that I liked:













It works a lot better than I ever expected, doubt I'll ever buy a real camera, this'll do.

A couple of months ago, i picked up the iPro lens Kit from www.schneideroptics.com

It includes a case for your iphone 4 and 4S which allows you to use the accompanying tripod mont
The case is also used to attach the accompanying wide angle and fisheye eye lenses which are cleverly
stored in the tripod mount.

Here are some shots of the setup along with a a couple of pics showing the differences made with the wide angle and
fisheye lenses.

Baldy's gang has released an app to awesomize iPhone photos (and videos!):

An Android version is on the way.
