Some of the best photos I’ve ever taken have happened suddenly. Sometimes I’m on a shoot on location with all of my equipment and a plan to get the perfect image. But sometimes, I’ll find myself in a situation where a scene presents itself that just communicates a feeling or an idea. This photo is an example of one of those times.
Floating along by myself in a kayak on a river in Idaho, the perfect lighting, scenery and opportunity presented itself. When I go to places like this I always struggle with the question of what camera equipment to take – if any. This was one of those times that I decided not to take ANY equipment but my iPhone.
This image is from a series of photos taken along the river with my iPhone 4 in a waterproof case. I’ve used several of the photos in advertisements. The quality of any of the iPhone 4+ images can be quite acceptable for use on the web as well as in print media of reasonable size.
