The iPhone boasts a powerful and highly capable camera that is always at the ready, allowing you to document the people, places, and things that surround you. Kat Sloma teaches you how to harness natural light, both indoors and out, to create high-quality images—and then she details some of the amazing, inexpensive, and powerful apps that can be used to finesse every aspect of the image—from capture to output.
In this book you’ll learn:
- How to choose and use apps that mimic the controls offered on professional-level cameras to take control over focus and exposure.
- How to boost your camera’s resolution, improve stability, and more.
- The best creative apps on the market which allow you to manipulate your photographs and add special effects.
- Image-editing strategies and techniques that were once the exclusive domain of professional editing programs aimed at serious professional photographers and graphic designers.

I’ve seen any number of great books about making photographic art with an iPhone since founding P1XELS over seven years ago. Kat Sloma’s “Art with an iPhone” is my favorite, hands down. She shares my belief that we are working in a new medium, a kind of magical realism, with our phones. And then she shows us how to do it in very clear step-by-step tutorials that will help any artist-photographer of any skill level to hone his or her craft and create beautiful, timeless images.
