Learn to take great photos with your iPhone—the camera you always have with you!
Imagine if someone took the same photographic techniques, principles, and tools used by high-end and professional photographers, but applied them to shooting with an iPhone. Imagine the type of images you’d be able to create using those same ideas. Well, finally, somebody has.
The world’s #1 best-selling photography techniques author is about to break all the rules as he shows you how to apply the same techniques today’s top pro photographers use to make stunning images. You’re going to learn exactly how to use these techniques to create images that people will just not believe you could actually take with a phone (but with the quality of the iPhone’s camera, you absolutely can!).
Scott Kelby leaves all the techno-speak behind and, instead, treats the whole book as if it were just you and he out on a shoot with your iPhones, using his trademark casual, plain-English writing style to help you unlock the power of your iPhone to make the type of pictures you never thought could be done with a phone. You’ll learn:
Each page covers a single concept, a single tool, or a trick to take your iPhone photography from snapshots to shots that will make your friends and family say, “Wait…you took this?!”

How could we not want to know all there is to know about this device we carry with us absolutely everywhere? And who doesn’t love Scott Kelby‘s photography books? He’s not only unusually useful in the information he gives us, he is entertaining as well. I’ve probably read most of his books.
In scanning the issues he covers in chapter 1, I’m already impressed: he tells us not to pinch to zoom the camera and to keep the flash turned off, among many other tips. Like I said, Kelby always gives us practical advice.
Funny how long I’ve had and used my iPhone camera and still did not realize that you could lock focus. Thank you, Scott Kelby!
The author reminds us that we can shoot things as closest 3 inches away, which opens the door to lots of fun macro-like pics.
Since we all take millions of photos of our family and friends, I’m so glad that Kelby put a detailed, useful section on portrait taking with the iPhone. Brilliant tip I appreciated: you can use video mode to take a still shot that will fill the entire screen, showing much more of the scene you are shooting.
And the author doesn’t stop at telling us how to use the camera in a technical sense, he gives lots of excellent scoop on how to take better pictures generally. You get a lot for your money with this book. It really is a primer on how to take better photographs with any camera, and in particular with iPhones.
So glad that Kelby goes into detail on shooting panoramic images. I do that with my phone but don’t always get a result I like. So happy to finally have a primer on that. Toward the end Kelby tells us how to organize our photos, which is something all of us can use. I think most people take hundreds and hundreds of photos and the good ones can get lost in the shuffle. Kelby tells you how not to have that happen.
He also gives a couple of very useful chapters on how to edit your Photos on the iPhone itself and a list of apps that will help you develop even better pictures. At the very end, he gives several “photo recipes“, including how better to shoot your pets. He talks about lighting, but also about the patience to wait for your dog to make the right expression. I find patience is critical in any photography area, but especially when shooting life creatures.
Kelby‘s writing is so accessible and he’s got a wealth of experience; everyone who uses an iPhone camera, or wants to learn how, should read this book.
