Why iPhoneography is Addicting?

Why iPhoneography is Addicting?

What is iPhoneography? Who invented that word? It all started when iPhone was launched. Iphone users became so infatuated with its camera and apps and they developed this habit of taking artistic photographs using iPhone and its camera apps.

If a picture was taken using iPhone and its apps and was never downloaded and edited on PC, then iphoneographers consider the picture a product of iPhoneography.

So what makes this latest photography craze so addicting? I think it is the camera apps that you can use to create stunning photographs that make this whole thing interesting. Oh and not to mention the apps that enables you to socialize with fellow iphoneographers and share your photos with them.

Instagram is a very popular app that enables you to share your life with your friends through a series of photographs that you took using your iPhone. It has now millions of users and it is so addicting like Facebook.

Besides the camera apps, it is also iPhone itself that makes iPhoneography so exciting. Over the years, iPhone’s camera has improved greatly and now iPhone 4S has an 8MP camera that takes amazing photos. Its all-new optics makes a big difference. Finally, they have improved the lighting capability of its camera.

Some professional photographers got hooked on iPhoneography too because it is quite challenging. Using a camera with certain limitations challenges them to make the most out of it. It enables them to tap on their creativity.

With the help of several camera apps like camera+ or other filter apps, they create a masterpiece. Non-iphoneographers will be in awe if they see the iPhoneography photo galleries on Flickr. It is hard to believe that those stunning images were taken using a mobile phone. Those iphoneographers are true artists and they create extraordinary images using a small device.

I have spent hours looking and admiring iPhoneography pictures and I have become addicted myself. They are a work of art. I think I’ll start calling them iPhone magician from now on.

IPhoneography will continue to grow especially when iPhone 5 is released. I can’t wait to find out what changes it made on the camera. How many megapixels? What other new features does it offer? Does it have more features that can only be found on DSLRs? Will it change photography forever? Will there be new exciting camera apps?

IPhoneography is very addictive. I will never be the same after I learned about it.

    I think the limitations factor is a good point, a lot of my friends and me had a similar chat and the conclusion was convenience. Chase Jarvis had it right, the best camera is the one with you all the time.

    Hi Jay – interesting post. I am from Japan and there is a big community of iphoneographers here. I think the apps have really made the mobile phone the most popular camera, you can really turn an average photo into something great. Out of interest, which apps do you recommend?

    I recently upgraded to the Iphone 4s purely for the camera and it was certainly worth it. The improvement is very clear and picture quality is actually better than my cybershot digital camera.

    If you ask me use auto setting or 3rd party app like on iphone 4S its super easy. Try it on a Nokia N8 is the true art

    As usual here some of my best shot remember those are unedited, no extra lens used and lastly never user 3rd party app like on iphone 4 to enchance.
