5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect complement to new iPhone owners Sept. 18 2012
By Masa - Published on Amazon.com
There's a lot to like about this book. It's a very visual book that provides ideas on how to use your iPhone as a creative tool, and by that, it stops being just a smartphone and starts being the camera that you always have with you. The angle that this book takes is that it's a mix of both good advice and inspiration for people who aren't used to doing a lot of photography, as well as providing examples of how various apps affect your photos. That second part is useful because when you look at the Apple App Store, sometimes you have no idea what kind of results you'd get, and whether the app is worth your time. With this book, it shows examples of how to get good results with various techniques as well as third party apps.

I'd really encourage new iPhone owners to pick up this book, because it helps ease them into become avid photographers really easily. I think that it'd be good advice just to follow one tip at a time, perhaps spending a couple of days really working on it, and you'll becoming a better photographer for it. For example, one tip talks about using empty space, which is easy to think about but hard to do unless you force yourself to try it. Take your time, take the tidbits and tips in stride, and I bet these sixty tips will do more for you than any 365 project would. That's because it's giving you ideas on what to do that's new and inspire rather than making you become a slave to the camera. Great book, great tips, I enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book for iphone camera users Aug. 25 2012
By Cynthia Salzman Mondell - Published on Amazon.com
UPS delivered SIXTY TIPS FOR CREATIVE IPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY yesterday afternoon. I couldn't wait to finish work and start reading it. I didn't get home until 9:30 p.m. and promised myself I'd read just a few pages. By tip 4 I had already learned 6 new features of the iphone camera that I couldn't wait to try out. It's amazing. Over the year I have shot over 6000 pictures with my iphone and thought I knew everything. It has frustrated me at times - too slow to get the camera ready, no zoom, focusing issues etc. This book is full of good tips and suggestions. It turns the camera's negatives into ways of using them to expand your creativity. Anyone who uses the camera on their phone will be in for multi-surprises. It not only explores how to take better pictures with functional tools, this book shows you how to have fun taking pictures. Now enjoy. I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, informative, attractive and practical book Oct. 7 2012
By Scott G. Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Martina Holmberg gives us a well written, attractive book filled with practical advice and fun suggestions for getting the most from your iPhone's camera. The book is nicely designed and each page filled with artsy photos taken and processed on the iPhone. The sixty tips are short and encouraging and touch on basic composition, experimentation, workflow and app use. Holmberg seems to have a preferred look, though there is plenty of variety and she brings in guest photographers whose photos have different looks. Each photo is accompanied by the app or apps used to take and process it. Holmberg covers several excellent iOS apps and lists them all in the back.

Holmberg shows us ways to break the mold of conventional snapshots and explore the amazing capabilities that the iPhone camera and its apps give us. Anyone who takes her advice to experiment and have fun will produce better photos and maybe see the small details around them in new ways. I rarely give five stars to a book, but this one is nicely designed and bound, gives well rounded advice and beautiful examples and is small enough to carry around while I experiment. It fills its purpose well.

[Full disclosure: I received this book as a member of a tech user group.]

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read for iPhone Photography Sept. 13 2012
By Ronald Russ - Published on Amazon.com
I admit, when I first bought my iPhone 4S, one of the things in the back of my mind was how good would this be for photography. While it hasn't replaced my DSLR yet, it has opened up a lot of creative vision and I have been pleasantly surprised. Ms. Holmberg has done a more than adequate job of providing good tips when it comes to this topic. She has broken down them down in several different sections including getting started, developing your eye, photos from everyday life, and video tips. Photos by the author help illustrate the tips, and apps that were used are listed at the bottom of the photographs. Many recommended apps are listed in the back of the book, and they are fairly low cost or free, in some circumstances. I experimented with several of the apps in conjunction with reading this book. I was particularly interested in taking photos of mundane or daily subjects and seeing how the apps can bring out something different from the usual. I was impressed with some of the results based on her tips. It is a fairly leisurely read and will appeal to beginners and those with experience. My only complaint might be that it is a little short, but other than that, I think the author does quite well. I would definitely get my recommendation.

4.0 out of 5 stars fast read Dec 30 2013
By Yvette Christopher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Had some cute ideas. Liked the list of apps at the end. Was initially assuming that the book was focused on the photography and themes and how to use the camera. However, it was more focused on apps that will enhance your photos. I still liked the book. Bought a few of the apps and had some fun. Was not what I thought, but I was still happy with the purchase.
