LISA & MATT
This past weekend, I floated an idea to my recently engaged co-worker: an engagement shoot using just my iPhone. Surprisingly, they agreed to it and these are just a small snippet of what amounted to 1200 photos at Great Falls, VA.
It was really interesting shooting with just my iPhone 5s. It did the job extremely well. I did get weird looks from other couples who were shooting at the falls too, but part of growing as an artist is pushing boundaries of what you would conventionally do.
I ended up using artifact uprising to print out a 40 page booklet for them. While the phone was more than capable, it doesn’t provide that bokeh and sharpness a real camera set up would have. All in all it was a success, and as a fun project, if the client is willing and understands the output, it can work. But nothing will substitute for real gear if you want the real thing.
