An iPhone retrospective of 2015
With it already being February, I thought that now would finally be a good time to finally look back on this 2015.
This two-part retrospective focuses on the camera that I have with me at all times, the handy dandy iPhone 6. Although I now have the X100T as my primary camera for everyday use, I still love the experience my phone provides. In similar vain to what I mentioned in my previous post, sometimes, all I need is my phone.
You don’t get fancy lenses or lighting. You don’t get to fiddle around with settings or stare at the back of your camera to see if things are in focus. You have to rely on your feet to zoom in and out. You get a distilled experience that focuses on the trifecta of photography: exposure, composition, and light. (I kind of stole this from Linhbergh)
It’s not about getting the latest and greatest to improve your photography. It’s about working within the restrictions you impose yourself in. You learn to work within boundaries. You learn to adapt with what you see.
Your phone might take crappy images, but it boils down to you, who will take great photos. And that's why I love taking photos with my iPhone, I have nothing to blame but myself for shitty photos.
