Daily notes from Jack about everything

iPhone Photography Awards

The 2023 iPhone Photography Award winners continue to demonstrate that you don't need anything fancy to make great photographs. There are some beautiful and powerful images there.

I own some pretty fancy cameras and my best photos are nowhere near that level.

Still, making photographs with a phone is about the least interesting option I can think of. I can't stand using my phone as a camera. I also don't like some of the so-real-it's-fake-looking in-camera effects that I can't seem to turn off.

Give me an aperture ring, shutter speed dial, focus tab, and a bright optical viewfinder any day.

I love that people are doing such wonderful work using iPhones, but I'll keep my nice cameras that I enjoy using to make mediocre snapshots, thanks.
