iPhone Photo Tinkering

I’d heard of The Best Camera for a while now, but it wasn’t until I read this article from Phil Coffman (hat tip to Gruber) that I decided to start playing around with my iPhone camera and see what I could do with it. It’s very rare that I have a full-size camera around with me, but the iPhone is in my pocket all day long.

The tools I used to create the images in these sets were TiltShift Generator, Mill Colour, and The Best Camera. I’m sure there are more out there that could prove to be useful, but I went with recommendations from someone who has been playing with the available apps for a while and was a little surprised at what could be accomplished with such simple utilities and effects.

After playing with it for a couple of days, I’m convinced that you could do quite well and create some great shots taking pictures with the iPhone camera and processing them well—and it also strikes me how much the iPhone really is a tiny little computer in your pocket.
