iPhone Gear for Pho­tog­ra­phers

iPhone Life Magazine - - Front Page -

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.
