How to get Technically Great Images with an iPhone 4s

I started my photography back in the 70s with a SLR hand me down from my dad. I have always enjoyed the versatility of that camera.  I also love Medium Format Cameras,  talk about some great images.  Now I have a Nikon D70 DSLR and Nikon D70s DSLR which I love.  Go here and see the kind of images that this camera is capable of. This is the best camera for the money.

But now I see people making really great images with an iPhone. I’m thinking it can’t be. I can’t tell that they were taken with a phone camera.  Well it is true and i have learned that you can’t just snap a photo like i can with my dslr.  Here is what you will need to capture the best images:

  1. Get a camera app that allows you to capture raw images (tiff format).  ProCamera 8 or Pureshot
  2. Make sure your app you use for editing allows you to same in tiff format.  Filterstorm Neue or Enlight
  3. Yes, it’s that simple.

I was surprised at how much my image quality improved after using two of these apps.

I am still a DSLR photographer, but now I can create still life with my phone and don’t feel like I always need to have my DSLR with me.


What I like about my Nikon D70.

  1. You can buy the Nikon D70 or D70s (exact same camera except with a larger LCD) for less than $100.
  2. If you loose it or damage it, you can easily afford to buy another one or own 2 to start with.
  3. The best lens made for this camera is actually the cheapest, Nikon 50mm 1.8 for less than $105.
