iPhone Photography: Beyond Instagram
Learning to see the World around you, to quiet yourselves enough to witness what is being revealed in that moment
We take a purist approach to this, looking not to over manipulate the Photograph but rather to develop a consistent and personal vision, looking for the specific tools that will enable that vision to grow stronger.
The six primary aspects of workflow for iPhone Photography
(as we practice it)
- Capturing the image
- Editing the photographs one takes, discerning the better ones from the larger group and recognizing themes/narratives that might be running through a persons body of work
- "Tweaking" or making adjustments of the photographs so that a more faithful representation of the scene might be represented and to express more clearly ones reaction to that moment
- Archiving ones photographs, backing them up to a desktop computer, moving them between devices (such as from iPhone to iPad)
- Sharing the photographs that are produced, this might be on a social media site, blog or photo hosting service
- Lastly printing
The freedom that the iPhone offers us in terms of ease of use and its ubiquitous presence forces us all the more to practice a discipline of use and vision when we approach the iPhone as a camera.
