iPhone Photo School – level up your photography skills

Learn to take incredible photos with your iPhone, with new and improved 4K courses from our friends at the iPhone Photography School

The iPhone is by far the most popular camera in the world, and each year Apple makes significant improvements to its capabilities.

Despite this, it’s hard to shake the idea that it’s not a “proper” camera. Truly amazing shots are always taken by professionals with high-end DSLRs, right? Wrong.

Introducing iPhone Photography School, a full-fledged photography course aimed specifically at teaching its readers to take better photos with an iPhone.

Academy founder Emil Pakarklis explains: “one of the common iPhone photography misconceptions is that the iPhone can’t be used for serious photography. While DSLR cameras are technically superior, the quality of a photo mostly depends on the photographer’s intent and creative vision.”

Photography is about more than just hardware or technical prowess; as they say, the best camera is the one you always have with you.

Modern iPhones have amazing macro capabilities if you know how to use them

That said, finding the perfect subject is only half the battle: you also need the know-how to turn what you see into a stunning finished image. As evidenced by the photos sprinkled through this post, all of which were taken with an iPhone by the guys from the photo school.

Tips & Tricks has you covered for the camera and editing basics, of course. See the Camera and Photos chapters of our app or check out this list of our favorite 7 photography tips. But to take it up a level and become a successful iPhone photographer, there’s no better resource than iPhone Photography School.
