Our smartphone cameras have come a long way from back in the day where the maximum resolution they captured was VGA, and where it was more of a novelty to use the camera feature rather than functionality. However looking at today’s cameras, it is clear that technology has evolved immensely.
So much so that photographer Barb Simkova decided that she would chance it by shooting an entire wedding using just her iPhone 8 Plus (via iMore). According to Simkova, “I love that an iPhone allows you to capture something quickly, with little technical knowledge and set up. Portrait mode blows me away – some of the images that come out of the iPhone in portrait mode have such a beautiful depth to them that I find myself exclaiming, ‘THAT was shot on an iPhone?’”
Now as you can see in the photos on the website, they look absolutely stunning and in some instances, you’d be hardpressed to tell that they were taken using a smartphone. Of course in terms of sharpness, it isn’t quite as razor-sharp compared to using a “proper” professional camera with a high-quality lens, but like we said, the composition, the colors, and the editing do make up for a lot of it.
Note that Simkova isn’t the first photographer to shoot an entire wedding using an iPhone. Last year another photographer took photos at a wedding using the iPhone 6 Plus, which goes to show how far we’ve come along in terms of technology, and also how important things like composition are.
