As you might have noticed, I've been doing the yearly Project 365 photography challenge this year. Perhaps more interestingly, I'm doing it using my iPhone 6 only. No DSLR, not even a conventional point-and-shoot.
Go iPhone, or go home.
The beauty of it all is that the pictures actually turn out pretty well, and the post-processing apps in the App Store aren't too bad either. I know I keep banging on about them, but be sure to check out Pixelmator and Exposure. I'm happy with the results.
The effortlessness of taking good pictures with the iPhone is probably that phone’s most underrated quality. And yet, its importance grows with every passing day. Consider how vital the camera in any modern smartphone is. Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Twitter are the most popular communication platforms, and they’re all either image-centric or moving toward a greater reliance on visuals.
So I saw The Verge's piece on the iPhone 6 being the best for shooting photos and took notice. Vlad Savov might be focusing on the speed and ease of shooting, but I'd throw the quality of the end results in there, too.
Be sure to give the whole thing a read, especially if you happen to be in charge of any camera software that runs on Android.
