Seems like everyone these days agrees the iPhone is a great camera, true enough, but it can be so much better.
Lots of people simply want to use their iPhone for everything, family portraits, events, holiday pics and more. Whilst there are still many reasons for photographers to use a regular camera a well-aimed iPhone can get you tantalizingly close to meeting all those needs in a convenient pocketable package.
Shooting with the RAW (DNG) format can turn out iPhone into compact imaging dynamo, all those positives of iPhone shooting remain, the “in your pocket” convenience, speed, ease of use, the great screen, powerful sharing options and more but most of the pesky downsides simply disappear and those deficits that remain are significantly diminished.
Don’t get me wrong, regular iPhone pics are pretty good for snaps and general stuff but the softish images, limited dynamic range, noise, watercolour like rendering and often unpredictable results take the shine off the camera for serious shooters. You can be sure that with properly captured and processed DNGs those shortcomings will no longer apply.
Of course just shooting in DNG will help, but your images will be better still when you actually know a few extra tricks to use for the capture process and editing. Frankly, I think you’ll be amazed at how good your DNGs can be when you apply an optimised workflow, and great news, it’s all pretty easy to do.
I’ve put together an easy to follow, plain English, jargon-free eBook that will teach you everything you need to know to become an iPhone DNG expert, and I’m confident in saying this just might be the best $14.99 you’ll ever spend on your iPhoneography, maybe even on photography full stop.
Along the way, you’ll learn stuff about image capture and processing that would take months of combing the internet to find and quite honestly you’d probably still fail to uncover the information gems revealed in this eBook.
Amazingly much of what you’ll learn applies to the shooting and editing with any camera, so even if you only occasionally use the iPhone the $14.99 will still be money very well spent.
Ultimate iPhone DNG is 380 pages and 23 Chapters of iPad optimised goodness, take it with you wherever you and your “i” devices go and of course you could pop it onto your Mac or Windows computer as well.

Of course, there are lots of great sample pics of the sorts of real-world things the average person would be shooting, portraits of family, holiday snaps, landscapes, close-ups, and more. In other words realistic images that don’t require a studio, glamorous paid models and an array of lights, just the sort of photos you could expect to achieve if you put into practice the concepts and methods covered in the book.
So for the price of a coffee and a light snack you can change your iPhone shooting forever, I absolutely promise your pics will be better in every possible technical way.
