Photographer’s Camera Dies At The Beginning Of A Photoshoot, So He Uses His iPhone Instead

Sydney-based photographer Aaron Browning was just about to start a perfectly planned shoot on a sunny day when he picked up his camera to discover it wasn’t working. Rather than rescheduling and going home, Browning got resourceful and decided to use his iPhone 6. His results were better than anyone could have anticipated.

Using the power of iOS 10 and an app called Camera+, which allows users to shoot raw image files, Browning managed to pull off a flawless photoshoot. His shots look like the work of a professional set, making it hard to believe they were shot on a phone camera and edited in Lightroom. “To be fair, I’d already been fairly practiced in limiting myself on shoots,” Browning wrote on a PetaPixel post. “The iPhone limited me even further, so it was a really great challenge.”

His model, Jasmine Scorse-Chen, was reportedly a good sport about the whole thing, and was even eager to try the boundary-pushing technique.

Would you believe us if we told you this photoshoot was done entirely with an iPhone 6 camera?

Sydney-based photographer Aaron Browning’s camera died just before the shoot, so he had to get creative

Using an app called Camera+ operating on iOS10, he was able to capture surprisingly professional shots

He did have to work at the mercy of natural sunlight, which he can be seen blocking with his finger here

But once he was finished editing the photos on Lightroom…

The results were even better than anyone could have anticipated

His model, Jasmine Scose-Chen, was reportedly a good sport about the whole thing

In fact, she was even eager to see how the boundary-pushing technique would turn out

“To be fair, I’d already been fairly practiced in limiting myself on shoots,” Browning wrote on a PetaPixel

“The iPhone limited me even further, so it was a really great challenge”

If only all of us were this skilled with a phone camera, we could have modeling sessions whenever we wanted

I think you are correct Marie. Obviously there is an attempt to build up one over the other more advanced systems.

Of course you can take good pictures with an Iphone, outside in daylight, the problem comes when its a lack of light, often gets grainy and yellow unless you use the flash. And when you want to print the pictures to poster size, you'll see the pixels right away.
