The new iPhone 13 Pro has some pretty cool new specs, including a macro lens. Sure, it can be of great help for us photographers, but have you ever thought that it could help a doctor in his job? An ophthalmologist Dr. Tommy Korn has recently demonstrated how the iPhone 13 Pro’s macro eye photography helps him and his patients, and it’s really fun to see (no pun intended) how phone photography can be repurposed.

They say 13 is an unlucky number, but the 2020 iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) proves the theory wrong. The 13th annual competition winners have been announced, and they’re absolutely gorgeous. I always love seeing winners of this contest because they prove what I often say – gear doesn’t matter, it’s all about the photographer.
Before I going into this one, let me first lay a little groundwork for the background I have with Apple. A number of years back, I was in love with the iPhone 4S. I felt it was a phone made for photographers and supported it wholeheartedly, going so far as doing speeches at Apple stores about how their products catered to my workflow. As time went on, the light in which I held Apple began to fade, leading to writing the articles, “iPhone is not for Photographers” and “Microsoft: Photographers New Suitor.” In a nutshell, I was genuinely bummed since there was a certain amount of pride I took in using Apple products, for I was raised to love them by my parents, who used them as teachers.
Smartphones are getting smarter with every new generation, and so are their cameras. But when you combine a good photographer and a good smartphone, the sky is the limit. Quite literally. Zach Honig of The Points Guy recently shot magnificent Northern lights with nothing but his iPhone, handheld at a 3s exposure. He shared his experience and some photos with DIYP, so let’s see how he did it.
For the 12th year in a raw, iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) has selected the best iPhone photographers of the year. We may argue forever (and we probably will) if gear matters or not. But these photos show us a fact that remains true: no matter what gear you use, you still need talent and knowledge to capture a great photo.
You like photography, you’d like to take stunning photos, but you’re bummed because you don’t have a camera? But hey, you’ve got your phone! Photographer Noe Alonzo took a challenge to shoot only with his smartphone for six months. He did it to encourage all of you to just go out and shoot, and in this video, he shares some of the lessons he learned during the process.
Smartphone cameras are getting better and better, plus they are easy and very intuitive to use. This is why many of us rely on them for taking photos in everyday situations. However, because of their ease of use, some camera options remain hidden and unknown to users. In this video, Evan Ranft shares three lesser-known iPhone camera features. You may not have known about them, yet they can help you take better photos with your phone camera.
Photographing fireworks is challenging no matter which kind of camera you use. Last week I went to Linz, Austria, to shoot a firework at a local funfair, called “Urfahraner Markt.” The firework happens right near the Danube and is best watched (and photographed) from a nearby bridge called “Nibelungenbrücke.” So, first, here are a few sample shot of the fireworks I took with the iPhone.
