The iPhone has become the world's most popular camera. Apple has done a lot of marketing specifically surrounding the camera features and now shares a few iPhone shooting tips it recommends in a new series of fun videos.
I've written a few articles about using a smartphone for photography. In my first article, I mentioned that I was really against using it as a camera. With the way things are headed now, I am no longer against using my phone as a camera at all. In fact, I use my phone's camera a lot more than I ever thought I would. It is great to have a camera on you at all times, and there are plenty of situations where it is more reasonable to pull out my phone than a full camera setup just to grab a quick shot that I think would be interesting. With Apple sharing some tips on how to take certain kinds of photos, we can all learn a few things to improve our iPhonography a bit.
Even if you don't have an iPhone, you can probably do all these little tricks on another phone. It is also cool to see that Apple encourages photography on the iPhone to an extent where it is producing several simple videos to help people out. As a photographer, I do appreciate what Apple stands for and I, myself, will keep shooting away on my iPhone X.
