I was having a convo the other day via fb or w/e instant messaging app i was using to talk with fellow photographer @ryanlueclarke. we were talking about the new awesomeness from apple the iPhone 4s and iOS5 anyway the conversation drifted to the inevitable Camera’s but we were talking about the need of a point and shoot or rather the lack for the need of a point and shoot in this day and age. because with the current cellphones on the market you really are able to push the camera’s on those suckers to the limit. coupled with the right applications in my opinion an iPhone completely kills the need for a point and shoot. I take photos on a daily basis with my iPhone 4 and 3GS before that and when I tell people I did that with my iPhone they tell me i’m joking.
My personal Applications of choice for my iPhone photo needs are Instagram, Camera+ and the basic camera on the iPhone 4, and on the post processing side of things, I typically just use camera+ and for somethings Photoshop Express. I’ve dabbled around with Photogene but have never needed that much features as it provides. (overkill imho)
Being a huge fan of Boudoir Photography I even attempted that with nothing but my iPhone and iPad as that was the camera and Lighting tools I had on me at the time. This photo above I did with my iPhone 3GS at the time post work was done in Photoshop express (blur, black and white conversion and border) and i used actual Photoshop on pc to add the gallery print border. tell me what you think of the output in the comments below, also do you think you still need a point and shoot with the advancement of image quality on today’s cellphones.??
