Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 standpoint
  • Explanations 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 TouchRetouch
  • iPhoneography 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."

- Daria Polichetti, Co-Founder of Los Angeles Mobile Arts Festival

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Too complicated for beginners 25 novembre 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Excellent book for professionals.
I am a beginner also one star only, as I was disappointed.
This book may become useful for me in a year or two.
Most of the pictures are highly surrealistic and made of photographs nobody wants to see separately.
This has nothing to do with good photography.
Photographers will be disappointed.
Also a note on the title. Most of the 'art-work' is done on an ipad.
There is even a contributor who paints on an ipad and doesn't even use photographs.
Iphoneography is a too narrow concept on what is happening in this book.
You could as good work on an android smartphone or laptop, anything that takes apps.
Therefore I suggest the much broader term App-art.
It is certainly apart.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intense 26 août 2013
Par Daniel G. Lebryk - Publié sur Amazon.com
The iPhone camera, who would ever imagine that after thought on a cell phone, could produce amazing art. The Art of iPhone Photography not only dispels that myth, it then goes on to describe the techniques used to create that art. It is an impressive book.

Where to start? For the photography alone, as a coffee table book, this book is worth the purchase price. Never mind this is one of most intense photography books I have ever read. The Art of iPhone Photography does something I have never seen in any art form, it describes in illustarted step by step detail how the masters created an incredible image.

In a rare twist for photography books, the writing is perfection. The authors edited this book down to perfection.

The first step in creating this book was to find excellent photography. The authors have found work that ranges from masterpieces to good images. Because this is a compilation of 45 different photographers, there are styles I loved and others I didn't care for. In the end, all are technical masterpieces and amazed me that they were shot with the iPhone camera.

The over 350 page book is organized around tutorials, with a gallery intermission in the middle. Each tutorial starts with a single page reproduction of the final image. On the next pages there is a description of what the tutorial is about, the kinds of things that will be learned. Then the photographer describes their thought process, creative inspiration, and why they chose the apps or steps they did. Then the tutorial starts with which apps were used followed by descriptions of the step and pictures illustrating what was done. I particularly loved the starting raw image. Sometimes I would look at that image and think; this was the inspiration for that finished image? Wow, that person is incredibly creative. The tutorial ends with a summary and more words from the photographer about their philosophy. There is a short biography and sometimes a side bar of something the photographer wants to emphasize.

The last few pages include a list of all the apps referenced in the tutorials, and on which page they are mentioned. There is a dizzying list of apps. Each app listed has a short description of why somebody would want to use it.

Given that 45 different people contributed to this production, I have no idea how the authors managed to get such crystal clear tutorials and instructions. There were a few photographers that glossed a long ways over what they do, but by and large the detail was amazing. I particularly disliked the portrait photographer in the early chapters that said, focus for the eyes and expose for the face, unclutter the background, and then don't do anything else to the picture. Yeah, that is really easy to say after 30 years of professional experience; doing it is another matter altogether.

These tutorials are intense. I was exhausted after my first read through this book. The key to this book is to understanding a technique, applying filters or learning how to use a few new apps. And then applying that to the style of photography you love. The authors covered virtually every genre of photography - there is something for everybody to learn.

The other use of the book is pure inspiration. The book contains an amazing gallery of photographs with only one thing in common that they were all shot with an iPhone. Somehow the images manage to feel coherent as if they belong together.

Is the iPhone camera the greatest photography invention? Well, I don't necessarily believe that. As Henry Ford didn't invent the car and Eastman Kodak didn't invent the camera; they both made their products accessible to everybody. The iPhone camera has made photography accessible to everybody, and as the authors say so perfectly, it has added spontaneity to photography. Yes spontaneity is an incredible invention.

I was provided a review sample.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing what a phone can do 10 octobre 2013
Par Thomas Crouse - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Let me say upfront that I'm not a cell phone photographer - I use the SLR & Photoshop method. But a number of my friends are achieving amazing results on a cell phone so I read this book to see what it is all about. I was impressed. The book consists of 45 images taken & processed on an iPhone with detailed instructions on the often complex process & apps used. All images are very good & show a great deal of creativity. It's amazing what they accomplish on a phone.
This book is not for the casual vacation shooter - it's for more serious photographers who are interested in making art. While all images were taken & processed on an iPhone, they say that most of the nearly 100 apps used are available on Android phones. I don't think I'll be giving up my SLR anytime soon, but this book opens the door to a whole new school of creative photography.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fabulous helpful book 7 septembre 2013
Par M. Braun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I liked this book so much that I returned my Kindle version and ordered a book book so I could flip pages, turn down pages, ponder, savor, try out,underline, make notes, etc. This is the perfect book for learning how to work with your photographs on the iPhone. Other books are very helpful and worth having, i.e. Dan Burkholder, but they only tell you about how that person works with apps. This book tells you how MANY photographers work on their photographs. The photos cover a wide range. To me, some are brilliant and some just good and interesting, but the instructions are detailed and, sometimes, the photographer gives you instructions on using a particular app, not just how it was used in the photo but how to use it generally. This is definitely the best book out on how to work with the iPhone (and I didn't get a review copy) and I have several other books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A beautifully illustrated and well organized guide to creating artistic photography with your iPhone and apps 9 octobre 2013
Par Nathan Andersen - Publié sur Amazon.com
I've read lots of books on creating nice photographs, that usually presume you have a fancy DSLR and Photoshop. Of course, where most people take photographs now is on their phones and if they do anything to "sweeten" the image it's usually just a quick adjustment applied in one of the easy apps that are available for free. It turns out a lot more is possible, and there are really next to no limits for the creative iPhone photographer, willing to try new things. This book is an attempt to show some of the possibilities.

I should make clear up front that this is not a quick guide to taking better basic photographs on the iPhone. It's really designed as an introduction to and source of inspiration for using a variety of apps on the phone to capturing and refining artistic photographs and for turning photographic elements into digital artworks. The first part is focused on artistic photography and the second part on illustration and fine art. Each part consists of a series of tutorials, each focused on key works created by established artists who have been inspired by the possibilities of the iPhone and its various photographic and artistic apps.

What's really fantastic about the book is that we don't just see their photographs, but they walk us through the process whereby they were created. They talk about their aims in each photograph, what they did to prepare, and the steps they followed to complete them. They identify the apps they used, they talk about how they captured their original images, and then how they used apps to refine them. Each of these tutorials is very clear and nicely illustrated.

The authors of the book did a great job organizing the information, and especially in capturing a bit of the distinctive voice of each artist, while at the same time giving the whole book a common feel and tone. Most notably, they are written not only to describe the specific things they accomplished in their photos but to suggest how the reader might accomplish their own thing in a similar vein. That's a difficult task and they managed it beautifully.

The illustrations are excellent - they've chosen strong photographs and designs in a range of styles, and they also provide illustrations of the applications they used to create them and how to finesse their controls. There's an appendix at the end that lists the various apps mentioned in the book and another that points the reader to places in the book where various techniques are described. It's a really fascinating book, that would look nice on the copy table, but would do even better inspiring readers to create fascinating photography and digital artworks. I know I was inspired.

(Note: I was given a copy of this book by the publishers, who requested that I post an honest review.)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for the every day photographer 24 septembre 2013
Par K. Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This book goes way beyond snapping photos with your phone. In a simple and easy-to-follow manner, you can see how to create art with your iPhone*.

Each of the two sections of the book contain several subsections. Each subsection covers a category, such as Landscape or People & Portraits. 45 different "iPhoneographers" contribute a study. Each of the studies is by a particular photographer, based on a specific photo and covers: What You'll Learn, What You'll Need, Back Story, The Process, My Favorite Apps, and a Summary. A photo is shown in each study and the details of how it was created, including the photographers decisions in setup and editing, are discussed.

The studies make it easy to follow along, as well as skipping around the book to the photographs that interest you. The book is great if nothing else than for the many iPhone app suggestions. After reading just a couple of the studies, I downloaded a couple of apps and tried out some of the suggested techniques. I was very happy with the resulting photo. The cases go way beyond the usual concepts of framing and cropping and go much farther into the art aspect with saturation, and blurring, and artistic additions of light (via editing) and dark.

While I am a huge fan of photography, I could never get into the deeply technical aspects of F stops and apertures. That's one of the many reasons I like smartphone photography. This book is for people like me, looking to get the most out of their iPhone photos without delving into technical jargon.

*The authors do admit that many of the techniques and applications used to take and edit photos are not strictly limited to iPhones.
