As you can see from these incredible images, you don’t need an expensive DSLR camera to take great photos. If you have an iPhone, you already have everything you need!

    These photos are fantastic! How did they take the underwater photos? I didn’t think the iphone was waterproof.

    • Barbara Cardinali MacFerrin

      You have to use a waterproof case for it.

    • Glad you enjoyed seeing these photos Debbie. You’re right – the iPhone definitely isn’t waterproof! But there are several great waterproof housings/cases for the iPhone which allow you to take incredible underwater photos: http://iphonephotographyschool.com/underwater-photography/

  • Carol Addassi

    Beautiful!! Congratulations everyone!!!

  • Artemisia1

    Wondering what program applies the textures that give a painterly quality. Are those filters available in Lightroom?

  • markn

    The one thing I see in this article has nothing to do with the iPhone but all to do with the photographers eye. Don’t get me wrong the iPhone is a great camera but you need to really see your picture before taking it.

    • That’s absolutely right. It’s not the camera that makes the photo – it’s the person behind it. All of these photos have great composition, light, subject, story, etc. and these are the things we need to learn to “see” in order to be able to take eye-catching photos. The wonderful thing about the iPhone is that we always have it with us, so we never miss out on a great photo opportunity and we can take photos every day to improve our photographic eye 🙂
