Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Martina Holmberg gives us a well written, attractive book filled with practical advice and fun suggestions for getting the most from your iPhone's camera. The book is nicely designed and each page filled with artsy photos taken and processed on the iPhone. The sixty tips are short and encouraging and touch on basic composition, experimentation, workflow and app use. Holmberg seems to have a preferred look, though there is plenty of variety and she brings in guest photographers whose photos have different looks. Each photo is accompanied by the app or apps used to take and process it. Holmberg covers several excellent iOS apps and lists them all in the back. Holmberg shows us ways to break the mold of conventional snapshots and explore the amazing capabilities that the iPhone camera and its apps give us. Anyone who takes her advice to experiment and have fun will produce better photos and maybe see the small details around them in new ways. I rarely give five stars to a book, but this one is nicely designed and bound, gives well rounded advice and beautiful examples and is small enough to carry around while I experiment. It fills its purpose well. [Full disclosure: I received this book as a member of a tech user group.]
