Meg Pickard on Getting Most Out of iPhone Camera

Geisha by Meg Pickard.

Meg Pickard: “The thing about this photo is that if I’d used a “proper” camera, it would have undoubtedly have caused too much attention, and would have spoilt the composition. As it was, I was only able to get this picture by holding the camphone at a most strange angle by my face (perhaps the other passengers thought I was very short sighted, and just reading a text message?) but the crucial thing is that this photo simply couldn’t have been captured in such a spontaneous way without a piece of photographic capturing kit which enabled spontaneity: A cameraphone.”

About Lloyd Kahn

He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated.
