Fstoppers posts an in-depth look at a recent fashion photo shoot conducted by fashion photographer Lee Morris using only an iPhone 3GS for the camera work. While the photos were processed in Photoshop, Morris notes that photos taken with professional-level cameras would be subjected to the same treatment. Post-processing, many observers have been pleasantly surprised at the quality of the images.
I posted a few of the images and asked people to critique them (never exposing that they were shot on my cell phone). I couldnt help but laugh when a few of our readers claimed that these were the best images I had ever taken. Nobody ever claimed that they were too grainy, too soft, or lacked detail.Morris also produced a video showing how the shoot unfolded and demonstrating how photography should be more about taking good photos than obsessing over technical details.
There are so many photographers who are obsessed with noise, sharpness, color, dynamic range, megapixels, chromatic aberration, moire, distortion, etc. So many photographers get wrapped up in the technical side that they forget how to take compelling images. This video is for them.
