eyePhone: Making stronger photographs with your camera phone

eyephone ebook


A unique eBook, eyePhone: Making stronger photographs with your camera phone by Al Smith is designed to help readers fall in love with the raw simplicity of shooting with your mobile phone, embrace its limitations, and turn them into your own creative freedom and voice. I’m glad the author addressed some of the valuable apps; he could have gone into more detail about using them but at least provides a good introductory foundation.

iPhoneography is becoming very powerful because we carry these surprisingly effective little cameras with us everywhere we go. This is a whole new class of photography. It’s photography that fits in your pocket. A lot of professionals choose to shoot with a DSLR instead of a medium-format camera because it’s way more portable. I don’t even vacation with my DSLR because it’s too big. My camera phone is the most portable and accessible capture device I own, and this book is about this new category of mobile photography.

We need to focus on the soul of the picture, not the technology used to shoot it. The question should not be, “What device was used to make this photo?” it should be, “How did he communicate this story so effectively?” Like a rake, shovel, or axe, the mobile phone is simply a tool. Let’s face it, a tool is only as good as the hands it’s placed in and the hands are only as good as the brain’s ability to guide them.
