I Use – iPhone … for Photographs? Yes!

Do I actually use my iPhone to make photographs? Yes! You’ve seen many of them here on my blog. I don’t use my iPhone to make exhibition quality prints. But, I use it to make snapshots and take quick notes. I’m out for drinks with friends – iPhone. I want to stay in touch with my family while I’m away – iPhone. I’m in a museum and I want a quick sketch – iPhone. I’m in a bookstore and I want to make a note of a book cover or something inside it – iPhone. The toughest thing about the iPhone is my 6 year old son wants to use it all the time. I’ve found the best insurance policy for both my iPhone and my professional cameras is to get him his own digital point and shoot.

    I have been using my new iPhone as a mobile portfolio. I find that it is great to communicate visual approaches with clients and as a portable portfolio that I’ve been pulling out at social events.
    I wrote about the details of how to do this on my blog.

    Just saw your earlier iPhone quote: “For years, I’d be in public and get asked, “What kind of images do you make?”. I’d reply, “Cross Salvador Dali and Mark Rothko with photography.” Heads got scratched. Now I simply pull out my iPhone and show them my images.”
    Don’t know how many times I’ve said the exact same thing about my iPhone (well, not the Salvador Dali and Mark Rothko part). Without question this is one of the most important features of the iPhone for a photographer.
    With care, the iPhone can make surprisingly interesting images. Sometimes I convert them to B&W, like here:
    Those shots were all available light at night – street shots in NYC; presumably a tough job for the iPhone, but it came through.
