iPhone Photography: Baseball and iPhoneography

It seems like iPhoneography—iPhone photography—is everywhere these days. And, I guess that really shouldn’t be a surprise. We take our cell phones with us everywhere, so our iPhone camera naturally comes along.

But, getting a really good photo from an iPhone can be tough because it has a lot of limitations. You can’t change the focal length of the lens (without using off-brand add-on lenses) and you can’t control the shutter speed or aperture size on an iPhone camera. And, the sensor size of the iPhone camera is an issue too.

But, all that said, I’ve seen some pretty amazing photos taken on an iPhone. And, at the end of the day, the old adage still applies: the best camera is the one that you have with you.

So, I think it’s fair to say that iPhone photography is going mainstream. Any remaining doubt I had of this is now gone after reading that Sports Illustrated will be publishing a series of baseball photos taken with the iPhone. And, they’re really nice photos. Check them out here:
