iPhone Gear for Photographers
espite having a wonderful DSLR camera that takes incredible pictures, I've discovered that the majority of the photos I display have actually been taken with my iPhone. I just don't like lugging around my heavy DSLR all the time. My iPhone, on the other hand, is always with me, making it perfect for capturing those moments I least expect. However, my phone's camera, though convenient, has some major limitations. If you want to start getting a little more creative with your iPhone photos—e.g. macro photography, self-portraits, etc.—then these accessories can help get you started. to change that, allowing you to wirelessly print your photos directly from your phone via the Polaroid ZIP app (free). Sure, this pocket-sized instant printer doesn't produce professionalquality prints, but the ZIP's ease of use helps make up for that. These 2x3-inch prints sport a peel-off sticky back that transforms them into stickers, making them great for journal entries. GripTight GorillaPod Tripod ($29.95)
The GorillaPod remains my go-to tripod when it comes to mobile photography. Unlike most of the stiff, bulky tripods I've tried out over the years, the GorillaPod is compact enough to stow in a small bag, and its three bendable legs and magnetic feet rotate 360 degrees for added flexibility. That means this little guy can go pretty much anywhere—be it perched on a rocky mountainside or wrapped around a metal pole.
