A while ago I started working as a designer for a new Dutch magazine about smartphone photography called Phonographer. Next to being a photographer and photoshop wizard I do love to shoot with my iPhone. And I’m an avid geek when it comes to accessories and things with buttons.
Now shooting with an iPhone comes with its own pro’s and con’s. The pro’s of course being its size, the amount of apps and editing possibilities and its online options. The con’s are for instance sensor size, and ergonomics. But every instance of a new smartphone camera gets better and better. As an allround camera its getting quite serious in almost every aspect.
Now the only thing I was missing from turning my smartphone into a more useful photographic tool was the ability to use an off-camera flash, or trigger my studio lights. We all know how we felt the first time we used an external light source with our camera, the way it opened up our ability to be more creative with our photography.
