Vimbly, a website offering a wide range of classes to take in NYC (anything from cooking, art, to fitness, dance, or activities for adrenaline junkies), I was able to take an iPhoneography class. All the photos in this post are all taken on my iPhone 4S.
Sure, it's pretty simple snapping a shot from your phone, but I did learn some tricks and tips to taking quality photos - all using the iPhone alone. It definitely comes in handy when I don't have my actual camera around and it's perfect for uploading instantly onto social media accounts.
While I don't want to give the whole class away, I'll share only a couple of tidbits. One tip is not to ever zoom in. On the iPhone, it's a digital zoom, just blowing up on the sensor - not an optical zoom in a typical camera. You basically zoom in on bad resolution. Another thing I learned was that, when taking a photo with direct sunlight hitting the camera can cause discoloration on the iPhone 5 and not on the 4 or 4S. It's because the iPhone 5's camera glass is made of sapphire glass which adds a tint of color when bright light is shone upon it.
We also given information about changing the auto focus and exposure while taking photos -- you can see below the difference it makes when you play around with it. The first image is a normal shot, the second is with higher exposure, and the third is with less exposure.
Would you take an iPhonoegraphy class?
