The Art of iPhone Photography explores how 45 of today's best iPhonegraphers from around the world conceived, composed, and created some of their finest and best-known pieces-all in their own words. Through an understanding of the artists' visions, creative decisions, and techniques, beginning through advanced iPhoneographers will immediately be able to apply what they learn and take their own photographic art to the next level.

Key features of the book include:A wide variety of styles and subjects: Landscapes, street photography, abstracts, architecture, portraits, collages, concept pieces, etc.Detailed tutorials: Example artworks from authors and contributing photographers accompanied by descriptions of how each piece was created from both a creative and technical standpointExplanations for practical use of nearly 100 apps, including BlurFX, Camera+, Iris Photo Suite (now Laminar), Juxtaposer, Photogene2, Pixlr-o-matic, ScratchCam FX, Snapseed, Superimpose, and TouchRetouchiPhoneography gallery: A stunning showcase of works by notable iPhoneographers
Always on, always at hand, and inconspicuously deployed, today's smartphones empower us to record the world in ever newer and more personal ways. By leveraging the photo-editing applications found on the iPhone, professional and amateur photographers alike are able to create not only editorial imagery, but also creative art.

"Nicki Fitz-Gerald and Bob Weil, at iPhoneographyCentral.com, have built a community dedicated to the burgeoning collaboration between art and technology that is iPhoneography. Their site, and now this book, offer extensive, in-depth tutorials both for budding iPhoneographers looking to advance their craft, and professionals attempting to harness a new toolkit in service of their vision.

What they bring to the table is their belief that 'revealing the man behind the curtain' does not diminish the teacher. Technique does not the artist make, but it does enable the newcomer to find his or her own voice. With thousands of apps available and more flooding the market daily, every new iPhoneographer wonders, What apps should I use? The answer to that question is so complex, with so many variables, that an illustrated tutorial such as this becomes an invaluable tool. There is really nothing like it.

It does not offer the advice of a single artist or showcase images from a small artistic segment. Indeed, it offers up stories, knowledge, tips, and secrets from many of the key players in the formation of this movement, showcasing more than 40 artists and tutorials and 80 pages of iPhonic art."

Photography Year Zero is a retrospective look at a serious amateur’s first year of photography and image production. It features full-page gallery images, play-by-play post-processing moves, Photoshop project breakdowns, camera settings, and shooting strategies. Balancing out the tech side, the gallery images launch discussions about workflow, the creative process, developing a personal style, the street photographer ethos, and the subjective nuances of modern digital photography as a gateway to artistic self-expression. 

Ranging from street photography to surrealist/abstract imagery, Photography Year Zero was designed to provide a rich viewing experience on high-resolution display equipped tablets. Swipe through page after page of scalable images, concise technical information, stories, analysis, and thought provoking quotes. Photography Year Zero is organized into 50 unique reflections, spread over nearly 300 pages, that can be enjoyed in any order by photography buffs at every level.

HIGHLIGHTS:

Stories and perspective. Photography Year Zero is the story of a novice photographer in search of a style. The author collected more than 17,000 exposures over the course of his first year of serious photography. Contemplating the work, basic questions about its nature and meaning kicked off an ongoing investigation of the medium. Using Susan Sontag’s notorious On Photography essays as a springboard, he branched off and took notes while using his own images to illuminate some influential historical insights and ideas about photography and art.

More than 120 gallery images. Scalable gallery images occupy their own text-free pages. The first gallery image in every reflection launches the topics; supplemental images provide additional exemplars.

More than 150 incidental images. View unprocessed gallery image source exposures, Photoshop project layer renders, images that illustrate insightful quotes and concepts, and more. The majority of images presented throughout the book are accompanied by their associated camera settings.

More than 30 screen shots. Lightroom user interface settings are depicted for select images.

Photography Year Zero is a beginner’s year-long running commentary on all things photography – gear, subjects, workflow, history, and philosophy. It will inspire the beginner and motivate the pro, and all readers will certainly identify with the dedicated photographer’s path that runs cover-to-cover throughout its nearly 300 pages of images and text.
