 The iPhone Photography Book, by Scott Kelby.
Thank to Kourtney, president and co-founder of Pacific & Court, for sending CC a copy!
This concise, witty, full-color illustrated book explains in mini-chapters how to get professional-looking images with the camera you always have with you! CC picked up a bunch of tips and tricks, such as:
1) Use Burst Mode for shooting something that's moving.
2) Never use iPhone's built-in flash.
3) Don't put your subject in the middle of the frame. Use the rule of thirds (invented by a painter in 1797): divide your image into 3 sections, and place your subject where those lines intersect.
4) When photographing people, direct sunlight and artificial light should be avoided. The best time to shoot is when the sun is low in the sky.
Darlings, CC hopes this manual helps you become a better photog, too!
