iPhone photography Tips & Tricks

Do you use an Apple iPhone?

Chances are, you do.

How would I know, and why?

Quite simply, not only does the Apple iPhone continue to dominate the smartphone market with innovations, but worldwide and domestic sales of the smartphone indicate market share dominance. In other words, Apple is the “worldwide number one single manufacturer of smartphones by revenue, profit, and volume.” Tom Kang, Director at Strategy Analytics, reported that in 2010 alone, Apple shipped over 100 million smartphones.

But you didn’t necessarily want to read a marketing and sales report – right?

On to the iPhone tips and tricks.

The  iPhone’s integrated camera has the ability to zoom up to 5x.

The zoom feature may be accessed two ways: 1.) by a two-fingered spread or pinch – similar to zooming in or out on a photograph, or; 2.) a three-fingered tap on the screen. I find the two-fingered pinch technique easier.

Once the feature is activated, a slider appears across the bottom of the screen which electronically zooms the composed shot.

After a few moments of inactivity, the slider disappears from the screen.

Following are three original photographs made with the iPhone 3GS using iOS5. In this instance, “original” means they are three separate photographs – which have been made with three levels of zoom: 1.) Fully zoomed out; 2.) Moderately zoomed in, and; 3.) Fully zoomed in.
