It’s been a long time since I’ve read a new iPhone photography book so it was my great pleasure to break away from the digital screen to delve into the smell of new print by way of reading Paul J. Toussaint’s highly illustrated brand new book.
With a foreword by veteran iPhoneographer Knox Bronson, “iPhone Photography for Everybody – iPhone app Techniques – Before & After”…gives you exactly what it says on the cover – and more. The pages are packed with a wide range of Paul’s iPhone images, showing the original photo and the edited results, featuring a myriad of artistic styles and results leaning heavily toward the the textured and painterly.
Most of the images – and there are lots – list the apps Paul used to shoot and edit the images and many also give insight into Paul’s thinking behind his editing decisions, however this is not a detailed step-by-step tutorial book. Comparable to the energy in many of Paul’s urban images depicting the fast pace of New York, the pages of iPhone Photography for Everybody are a similarly fast-paced journey taking you through Paul’s favourite apps and techniques which are often bold in colour and layered with textures resulting in moody, yet vibrant images with a painterly feel that express the photographer’s energetic and boldly coloured vision of the city.
Paul has a lot of experience exhibiting his work in galleries and shares his knowledge with us in the helpful section on printing work on different stock. There’s also some useful information about how to start getting noticed on social media in this oversaturated market.
This 7” x 10” image-rich book won’t teach you in-depth, step-by-step techniques (although there are a few walk-throughs of some of Paul’s favourite apps like Snapseed and iColorama)… but what you will get is a whistle stop tour through Paul’s creative thinking and the apps he loves to use. It’s a great book to dip into and to be inspired by. Paul delivers a good range of artistic styles and you’ll get a feel for the creative potential of old favourite apps like Snapseed, iColorama and DistressedFX. I was also happily reminded of a few app oldies like Rainy Daze as well as discovering new apps like Digital Film Tools (DFT) which has a filter that turns a daytime photo into a night time one.
If you’re an iPhone photographer looking to move in a more artistic direction, this book could be just the inspiration you need to kickstart your creativity and move your photographs in a more painterly direction.
