iPhoneography Tip of the Week: How to Achieve the Rangefinder Look with Your iPhone


The iPhoneography Tip of the Week series features tips, tricks, and tutorials to help you take better pictures with your iPhone.

Rangefinders are super hot right now. Photographers looking for a dynamic view while shooting street photography love using rangefinders as their primary platform. The two-dimensional quality, straight-forward shooting is extremely unique. For me, photographing with a rangefinder is far more engaging than using my DSLR. Don't get me wrong, I love shooting with my 5D Mark III, but seeing the focus rectangle glow inside the viewfinder of my Canon QL17 is a truly wonderful experience. With today's digital offerings, you can't go wrong with a Leica or Fuji X100 - the overlays within the viewfinder are brilliant.
