Matthew Bamberg is a generous man - with his knowledge, his ability to instruct, and his prescient sense of where we all are in our use of the current modes of communication and recording of information. He is also sensitive enough to add other minds to his already best selling series of books on photography, and here he introduces Kris Krug, a teacher and consultant on the internet about matters photographic, and Greg Ketchum who among other things create the Coach On Demand Podcast. With experience such as these three men have the reader can be certain that the information and the manner of instruction will be first rate. This is the age of digital imagery and in this particular volume KILLER PHOTOS WITH YOU iPHONE the three men have managed to take the ease of collecting images instantly and then how to make those images develop into professional photographs. For those of us who have yet to purchase one of the many forms of iPhone, this book can just as easily apply to the old type of cellphone we all have - with a lot of variation of finesse. As all good text books this one starts from the top with chapters on iPhone overview and using the iPhone, but then it takes off at a very comfortable speed to make better photos on an iPhone - portraits, places/things/ working with varieties of light, and then takes us through the steps of cropping, resizing, framing and printing, not by taking out the chip and sticking it in your computer photoshop, but by using the iPhone itself as a standalone piece of valuable equipment. The chapters all are illustrated copiously with stage by stage helps on performing the steps written in print with very gracious but invaluable NOTES highlighted in blue that are the error preventers. It is a pleasure to read this book and makes the iPhone seem like a complete photographic machine! Very well done and a must for committed photographers or memory savers!
