I guess I'm one of those Apple iPhone users who uses the word iPhoneography a lot. I spend well over an hour each morning taking iPhone photos down at our local beach and have been a part of this iPhoneography movement for a few years now. I love my iPhone and I'm sure you know someone who is as fascinated with it as I am.

iPhoneography grew out of the iPhone's ability to process and organize our snaps, and to share these photos via social media. Cell-friendly internet sites such as Twitter, Flickr, Posterous, Tumblr and now Instagram are all a part of this growing social photography phenomenon. The word has emerged from a growing global community who - to use a phrase coined by Sion Fullana - share a common language. That of the Apple iPhone.

The inspirational qualities of this book came as a delightful surprise. I ordered the book because it looked cool, covered a subject I feel passionate about and was written by one of the most respected and talented photographers in the iPhoneography movement. I've been a regular visitor to Stephanie Roberts' Posterous blog and have long loved her ability to share her travel photography whilst on the move around the globe. Her stories and photographs are always compelling and she's one of the reasons I started to really use my iPhone to create. It's so good to find that her communicative skills are in full effect here in this marvelous state-of-the-union address!

I've long held that the heart of iPhoneography is the shoot-and-share element. I love to be able to take a photograph literally in the field and share it with folks across the globe. Why I'm delighted with this perfect little book is that it is focused on personal creativity. It makes me want to try something new. Again.

Okay, I may be getting to be an old geezer, but the type size and layout style leave much to be desired in this book--regardless of how good the information is.

I see this all too often: form (how the book "looks") winning out over content (how well it conveys information). In this case, some of the type is so painfully small that it is difficult to read. The book also goes between black type on white page, interspersed with white type on black page, which is also maddening to try and read. Besides this, the font style is itself not all that readable--again, it proably looks 'cool' to some 20-something graphic artists, which is why it was selected.

Finally they could have offered a few less, but large photos in the examples, which would have gone much further in conveying the ideas in this book.

Pubishers and graphic artists are supposed to know better, but unfortunately, form is all that seems to matter these days. Too bad, especially for a book that is about creating visual images.

This is an update a review I wrote in 2011:

The best camera is the one you have with you. For this reason iPhone photography is the future of image capture for the average person, and it will only get better as phone cameras improve and more apps appear. This book is very well designed, nicely laid out and produced with good reproductions on high quality paper and cool typography, as one would expect for an art book. Stephanie Roberts is an excellent writer and book designer who explains the steps of iPhone image capture with many screen shots and brings in a number of third party photo apps for special effects such as a vintage look. There is a chapter of examples by a dozen iPhone photographers, amateur and pro. The orientation of the book is art rather than technology; how to see.

Unfortunately, the book was an incredibly shortsighted project for the author and the publisher. How could anyone write a paper book about the iPhone? The first edition was based on the iPhone 4S. A half hearted Second Edition of the book was put out in 2012. Of course today (Spring 2016) we are on the 6S and the 7 will come out in September. Half the apps referenced in the book, even in the Second Edition, have been abandoned and the other half, upgraded beyond recognition. What a poor investment of time for the author and cost for the publisher to put out a hardcopy book on such a rapidly evolving subject? If Ms Roberts had set up a website instead, it would still be a viable resource.

Stephanie has created an exciting guide to an exciting new field of photography - iPhoneography. One could argue that it is an entirely new medium in and of itself and Stephanie is indeed one of its christened spellcasters. She explores and elucidates the seeming magic behind creating innovative imagery with your iPhone all in a neat little package that looks like a camera.

The book leads you through some of the image manipulation apps for the iPhone; it gives you tips and tricks for creating your own Mona Lisa by Ansel; she invites you to jostle your brain into thinking more creatively and seeing the world around you in new and alternate ways, offering ideas and your own checklist for projects of your own; and, she has assmbled a resource guide to some of the leading web sites, image outlets, such as the premiere virtual gallery Pixels At An Exhibition, blogs, and app review sites; all laid out in a concise, creative and snappy manner. With this book in hand, anyone with an iPhone, an eye for the visual and some of the leading apps like Hipstamatic, Iris, Autostitch, Camera+, Juxtaposer, PhotoStudio and others will at the very least be able to bump-up your creative output with the iPhone camera a few notches.

As a fellow iPhoneographer and new media artist I can only applaud Stephanie's ability to take what to some may be arcane and deliver it in a thought-provoking, clever, rather expansive and creative manner. For the price of three cups of Starbucks you will learn a good amount of information on this new form of image creation and, unlike drinking your coffee to the bottom of the cup, after a few snaps of the camera button you'll have some masterful imagery that lasts forever!

If you have an iPhone, take pictures and want to excel at the craft then this book is for you! If not, buy it anyway - it's shape is cute enough!
