Product Description

From the Back Cover

A beacon of creativity with boundless energy, Chase Jarvis is well known as a visionary photographer, director, and social artist. InThe Best Camera Is The One That's With You,Chase reimagines, examines, and redefines the intersection of art and popular culture through images shot with his iPhone.

The pictures in the book, all taken with Chase's iPhone, make up a visual notebook—a photographic journal—from the past year of his life. The book is full of visually-rich iPhone photos and peppered with inspiring anecdotes.

Two megapixels at a time, these images have been gathered and bound into a book that represents a stake in the ground. With it, Chase underscores the idea that an image can come from any camera, even a mobile phone. As Chase writes, “Inherently, we all know that an image isn't measured by its resolution, dynamic range, or anything technical. It's measured by the simple—sometimes profound, other times absurd or humorous or whimsical—effect that it can have upon us. If you can see it, it can move you.

This book is geared to inspire everyone, regardless of their level of photography knowledge, that you can capture moments and share them with our friends, families, loved ones, or the world at the press of a button.

Readers of The Best Camera Is The One That's With You will also enjoy the iPhone application Chase Jarvis created in conjunction with this book, appropriately named Best Camera. Best Camera has a unique set of filters and effects that can be applied at the touch of a button. Stack them. Mix them. Remix them. Best Camera also allows you to share directly to a host of social marketing sites via www.thebestcamera.com, a new online community that allows you to contribution to a living, breathing gallery of the best iPhone photography from around the globe.

Together, the book, app, and website, represent a first-of-its-kind ecosystem dedicated to encouraging creativity through picture taking with the camera that you already have.The Best Camera Is The One That's With You—shoot!

Format: Paperback
Not giving this book a 5 star review because many photos are simply very, very ordinary and unworthy of being printed. However, this book will make you think a lot. Sure, an iPhone is a nice gadget and if you have one, it is always in your pocket. Why not pull it out anytime you see something photo worthy but don't have your dSLR with you? The author shows us what can be captured for eternity with cheap glass, various effects and/or B&W photography, but at least YOU managed to capture it and share it with others. Emotions and perspective play a huge role in a great photo after all.

Many photos are nice, some are fantastic, and the purists will yell that he should have been carrying a "real" camera instead of his iPhone to capture these images. And that's the point of the book: shoot, shoot and shoot again, and you'll eventually come up with great photos as long as 1. you were there at the right time and 2. you had your iPhone.

Again: not a 5 star book or a revelation on how to be creative. I could not care less for photos about the author's food, his feet on the sidewalk or a shot of his friends' faces. It is, however, very entertaining and will give you that kick in the derriere to get out and shoot!

Chase has taken his skills to the next level with this new photo-book. He does such a good job of influencing young aspiring photographers to do something so simple: shoot.

What's even more amazing is that you can download the app, and get shooting in a matter of minutes.

You gotta love a great mind at work.

Highly recommended!

If you are looking for technically perfect pictures, noise free, sharp picture this book is not for you, but if you are looking for pure creativity, to look through the eyes of one of those most unique minds in photography then you want this book.

The images are amazing with a very interesting view of the world. In the book Chase states "There are at least ten great pictures waiting to be taken within ten meters of where you are standing right now" and this book is the proof of those words.

Get inspired, get a view, GET THIS BOOK
