The iPhone Fashion Shoot – Lee Morris Shoots With The 3GS Fstoppers from FStoppers on Vimeo.

A camera is just a machine. Set it on a table and it’ll just sit there. For it to record a picture there has to be someone looking through the viewfinder then to press the button. To take a great picture it takes some thought. You can have all the best photographic equipment in the world, but it’s all for naught unless you develop an eye for pictures and think about what you’re doing. To prove that very point Lee Morris with the web site posted a video of a fashion/portrait session he did using only an iPhone as his camera. Granted, he used some pretty expensive lighting equipment, but with a little thought and innovation, the same kind of lighting could be replicated using less expensive means.

Recently, the Gizmodo blog ran a shooting challenge for readers to send in photos shot with their cellphones. The result was 395 great pictures. It all goes to prove that it’s the photographer that takes a great picture, not the camera.
