In this 87-page Superguide, Macworld's editors have compiled all their advice for taking the best possible shots with your iPhone camera. You'll learn how to use every one of the Camera app's features, including controlling the flash, superimposing a rule-of-thirds grid, and taking high dynamic range photos.
But much of taking a good photograph isn't so much the right settings as knowing what to do in any given situation, and the ebook contains Ten Rules for iPhone Photography to get you on the right track, along with advice about how to take specific shots, such as sunsets, landscapes, motion, night scenes, kids, groups of people, outdoor portraits, wildlife, party candids, and more.
Once you've taken some photos, it's time to learn how to organize, edit, and share them using both the Photos app and Apple's iPhoto for iOS. Of course, you aren't limited to Apple's apps, and recommendations are made for a variety of apps to take and edit photos in ways beyond what is possible in Camera, Photos, and iPhoto. Finally, the Superguide recommends accessories that can give your iPhone camera different lenses, tripod stability, and a more powerful flash.
