"Killer Photos with Your iPhone" shows students how to take fantastic pictures using the camera built right into their iPhone. Because of its portability and unique capabilities, the iPhone camera is now one of the most popular digital cameras on the market, and this book shows you how to do everything from taking simple pictures to using apps to snap and create innovative images. You'll find information on the basics of shooting with an iPhone, including how to aim, compose, and focus your shots, as well as shooting within an app platform, and even post-processing. Many of the most popular photography apps are covered, and explained option-by-option with full-color images that allow students to see the progression of the app all at once instead of step-by-step. Covering both the 3G and 3GS iPhone models, this book will have students shooting, editing, and sharing killer photos in no time!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Right Apps Make the Difference: A Killer Photos with Your iPhone by Matthew Bamberg, Kris Krug, and Greg Ketchum Book Review 15 Aug 2010
By L. T. Beasimer - Published on Amazon.com
I have read many of Matthew Bamberg's books, and requested to read and review his latest. When I requested this book I was using a Blackberry and had an iPhone 4 on order. Being an avid photo-hobbyist, I thought this would be a great introduction for my new secondary camera. Fortunately my iPhone arrived before the book did.

Unfortunately, the untimely release of this book was a week prior to the iPhone 4. The world was abuzz about the iPhone 4, and the lack of mention in this book was glaringly obvious. The details of the iPhone 3G and 3GS, such as a lack of flash, were accurately represented for the previous models, although the iPhone 4 I owned obviously had one. As I was reading, I felt this book was outdated on release, and wished they waited a month or so to update the pages with the iPhone 4 stats.

However, the real details of this book aren't about the specific iPhone version. This is not a typical composition, or camera settings book, it's all about using the iPhone, the App Store, iTunes, and creating images using various applications and tools within the phone. Eleven chapters include iPhone Overview, Using the iPhone Camera, Better Photos on an iPhone, Portraits, Photographing Places and Things, Working with Different Types of Light, All About Applications, Resizing, Cropping, Framing, and Printing Photos, Post-Processing Apps: Tweaking Photos after the Fact in PhotoForge, ColorSplash, FX Photo Studio, and Photo fx, and Sharing Your Killer Photos. By the end of the book, one should have plenty of creative ideas and inspiration.

As I read through the pages, I downloaded the interesting free apps to play with, bought a couple, and added others to my wish list. I know how to get great images from my DSLR, but now I can get them from my iPhone too.

Many of the details regarding the app store and iTunes are too basic for the average iPhone user, but no matter how many times you notice the iPhone 4 is missing, the apps and techniques described are sure to inspire. New users or technically challenged persons will get more out of this book, but so will experienced users looking to improve their iPhone photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always on the Forefront 30 Sep 2010
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Matthew Bamberg is a generous man - with his knowledge, his ability to instruct, and his prescient sense of where we all are in our use of the current modes of communication and recording of information. He is also sensitive enough to add other minds to his already best selling series of books on photography, and here he introduces Kris Krug, a teacher and consultant on the internet about matters photographic, and Greg Ketchum who among other things create the Coach On Demand Podcast. With experience such as these three men have the reader can be certain that the information and the manner of instruction will be first rate.

This is the age of digital imagery and in this particular volume KILLER PHOTOS WITH YOU iPHONE the three men have managed to take the ease of collecting images instantly and then how to make those images develop into professional photographs. For those of us who have yet to purchase one of the many forms of iPhone, this book can just as easily apply to the old type of cellphone we all have - with a lot of variation of finesse. As all good text books this one starts from the top with chapters on iPhone overview and using the iPhone, but then it takes off at a very comfortable speed to make better photos on an iPhone - portraits, places/things/ working with varieties of light, and then takes us through the steps of cropping, resizing, framing and printing, not by taking out the chip and sticking it in your computer photoshop, but by using the iPhone itself as a standalone piece of valuable equipment.

The chapters all are illustrated copiously with stage by stage helps on performing the steps written in print with very gracious but invaluable NOTES highlighted in blue that are the error preventers. It is a pleasure to read this book and makes the iPhone seem like a complete photographic machine! Very well done and a must for committed photographers or memory savers! Grady Harp, September 10

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless Don't even bother 4 Mar 2012
By Eric Kauschen - Published on Amazon.com
The book was released in 2011 yet it doesn't even mention the iPhone 4 or apps like Instagr.am. The photos used as examples in the books are photographically awful and the authors apparently can't explain the rule of thirds properly even though they know how to use it. Expect to see lots of hazy or over and under exposed photos or overused filters on pictures that don't really do much for the photographs.
