One of the first images I processed on the iPhone.

"What struck me was how worthless I think iPhone images are and how I can’t imagine anyone licensing them. Obviously, this blanket statement cannot be true since it’s never mattered what photographers used to take their pictures with but I can’t get over the feeling that pictures taken with a camera in a phone that everyone owns have no value. I think iPhone images only have value when they depict breaking news or when they are curated by someone to understand a bigger picture." ~Erik Kessels (KesselsKramer, Amsterdam)
This is my comment to his article:
At the beginning I too was a skeptic of iPhone Photography. Then I tried it and fell in love with the concept. I soon realized what an amazing device I can carry with me that captures, processes and post images. I also realize the possibilities are endless in the creativity that is added to an image. Beside the fact that they make beautiful prints.
In the past year I have learned everything I possibly could about iPhone Photography. I now travel the world with only my iPhone, iPad and have become a better artist with the iOS applications. Through my blog I help others to see the possibilities and inspire other to do the same.
Recently I was given an opportunity to be apart of Aurora Photos myPhone Collection. I am honored to be apart of it.
I am very fortunate to have discovered iPhone Photography!
One final thing... In 1984 I was owner of a software development company that wrote programs for the Personal Computer, PC. I remember a gentleman in a 3 piece suit coming up to me and saying, "A PC will never run a real business." Today I think of how some are saying, "An iPhone will never take a real photo."
I welcome your thoughts and comments.
The next iPhoneography Classes Available February 13th 2012! I will be out of the country and unavailable for most of January 2012. Upon my return I will have fascinating images from many Asian countries.
