The iPhone Quandary

Shot With An iPhone 7+

I now own an iPhone 7+. It sports a 12 megapixel camera, has optical image stabilization, a ƒ/1.8 aperture and can shoot good looking videos very easily.  In short, the damn thing is is a powerhouse! 

An interesting writer, Craig Mod, just wrote a terrific article about the changing nature of cameras and the evolution of photography. See It Here

His point is that our phones now capture much more digital data than just the light falling on their sensors. He puts it this way:

“Once you start thinking of a photograph in those holistic terms, the data quality of stand-alone cameras, no matter how vast their bounty of pixels, seems strangely impoverished. They no longer capture the whole picture.”

Frankly I’m not sure how this digital evolution will all play out, but I do know that the thing I always have in my pocket is well on its way to transforming the photographic industry.

And probably me

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

I'd love to hear from you
