Rules of iPhoneography: Depth of Field

image

Sharp focus is one of the key aspects of capturing a great photograph. Focus and exposure are probably the two most critical technical areas photographers need to understand, and my last post, "Rules of iPhoneography: Capture Every Detail with These Exposure Tricks," looked at exposure in some detail. For my second post, I want to focus on focus (really sorry, couldn't help myself).

The iPhone, like all phone camera technology I'm aware of, gives us very little scope to play with focus at the point of capture. This is because the relationship between its optics and its sensor is such that typically the vast majority of the scene will be in focus, or almost in focus, even if we just point and click. We would describe this as a large depth of field or depth of focus.



Rules of iPhoneography: Capture Every Detail with These Exposure Tricks

A good image is a good image irrespective of the device it is captured on. Photographic rules including focus, composition, and exposure are universal and apply just as much to an iPhone image as any other. Therefore, I'm focusing my first post on exposure in iPhoneography.
 
The human eye is an amazing thing. It adjusts to light automatically and instantly. We therefore view a huge range of light levels in a single scene without realizing just how much our eyes are working. On the face of it, a camera and therefore an iPhone camera cannot replicate the combination of human eye and brain. How often have you captured a scene and thought, "But that's not how it looked to me?"

Shedding Light on a Low-Light Situation

One of the biggest and most anticipated improvements in the iPhone 5 revolves around the camera. Smartphones in general have become the de facto "point and shoot" that people carry around, and why not?  They're always in our hands/pockets/purses anyway, so why bother with anything else?

In the past, the answer to that question basically boiled down to "because they take better pictures."  So when Apple says they're upgrading the iPhone camera, people listen!  I know I was super stoked about it, iPhone Life-ers!  And I still am, except for one thing:  low light photography.

Easy Tips for Getting the Best Camera Shots

How to get the best shot with your iPhone camera

The best camera is the one that's with you. It's an old saying, probably the words of a frantic photojournalist who once had to grab his mom's box camera and shoot the blazes out of a bank robbery.


But it is a saying worth remembering, especially for iPhone camera users. It is not the best camera in the world but is a pretty good one that you often carry since it serves as your cell phone, Internet access point, weather advisor and so much more.


"You might actually be amazed at what all you can do with this little camera," says Alan A. Reiter, president of Wireless Internet & Mobile Computing. As a Washington D.C.
