Snap My Life – The iPhone Project
September 10, 2012 § Leave a comment
I’ve long held the belief that photography should and could be for everybody – whether snapping moments in your life or making a career out of it. As a professional photographer I often hear things along the lines of “I can’t do that because I don’t have an expensive camera”. This principle has always been a myth to me – some of my favorite ever photographs were taken on cheap, disposable cameras – BUT I have now decided to put this to the test!
On Thursday 13th September I will be working on an exclusive project for ‘Snap My Life’. I will be in a professional photography studio with a professional, experienced model. All sounds pretty normal so far right? But there will be a difference. The only camera I will use during the shoot will be an iPhone…
The iPhone is one of the worlds leading and most popular phones – it is therefore also a camera that millions of people already own. I intend to give the camera it’s maximum test in this experiment that should go some way to see if expensive camera equipment really is ‘that’ important.
I will use only the inbuilt camera app on the iPhone – no extra apps – and the only editing that will occur afterwards will be simple levels (brightness/contrast etc) – the same as what I would do if I were shooting with a leading DSLR camera. There will be no editing trickery, no background cut outs and no ‘false’ lighting – added in editing.
Please make sure you follow me on Snap My Life so you will be able to see the results for yourself…
