Book Description

18 Sep 2009 Voices That Matter
A beacon of creativity with boundless energy, Chase Jarvis is well known as a visionary photographer, director, and social artist. In The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You, Chase reimagines, examines, and redefines the intersection of art and popular culture through images shot with his iPhone.

The pictures in the book, all taken with Chase’s iPhone, make up a visual notebook—a photographic journal—from the past year of his life. The book is full of visually-rich iPhone photos and peppered with inspiring anecdotes.

Two megapixels at a time, these images have been gathered and bound into a book that represents a stake in the ground. With it, Chase underscores the idea that an image can come from any camera, even a mobile phone. As Chase writes, “Inherently, we all know that an image isn’t measured by its resolution, dynamic range, or anything technical. It’s measured by the simple—sometimes profound, other times absurd or humorous or whimsical—effect that it can have upon us. If you can see it, it can move you.”

This book is geared to inspire everyone, regardless of their level of photography knowledge, that you can capture moments and share them with our friends, families, loved ones, or the world at the press of a button.

Readers of The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You will also enjoy the iPhone application Chase Jarvis created in conjunction with this book, appropriately named Best Camera. Best Camera has a unique set of filters and effects that can be applied at the touch of a button. Stack them. Mix them. Remix them. Best Camera also allows you to share directly to a host of social marketing sites via www.thebestcamera.com, a new online community that allows you to contribution to a living, breathing gallery of the best iPhone photography from around the globe.

Together, the book, app, and website, represent a first-of-its-kind ecosystem dedicated to encouraging creativity through picture taking with the camera that you already have. The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You—shoot!

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring 20 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are a photographer and have an iPhone this book is worth a look. It inspires you by showing what is possible with a simple camera. Though iPhone based it shows what can be achieved by using your imagination and being creative. True Chase Jarvis is already a great photographer but I have produced some good images after reading this, images I wouldn't have bothered trying before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good inspiration 7 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
The great thing about this book is that it's not trying to be flashy by giving a showcase of stunning shots. The photos are more commonplace and 'real'. This book is more of a creative approach to looking around you and actually seeing what's there instead of constantly trying to catch that 'perfect' image. The books message is simple - have fun with your camera and try experimenting with the simple things around you. Give this book a go. It made me loosen up a bit and start having fun!

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull and over rated.... 28 Sep 2013
By Ed Jie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't often post negative reviews but I thought that this book was very overrated.
Great title to draw you in, but in the end, the content was less than spectactular.
I am a bit disappointed not to have done more research befor ethe purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite disappointing 18 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book strongly inspired by the idea, must say its Chase's photo diary rather than any sort of guide.

The title contains the main message and the book is just an example of execution of the idea - which is quite dissapointing to be honest.
Didn't find it inspiring nor suprisingly creative. And just learned that iPhone photo quality is absolute rubbish when comes to printing except for very good outside light conditions.

As an guide - doesn't work at all.
As an photo album - very dissapointing as photos are surprisingly poor in both content & quality - got impression that Chase just randomly put some snapshots just slightly editing them - there are some plain out-of focus shots.

To sum up, may be inspiring in a way as some shots are quite nice, but was expecting more than just some over-saturated & noisy snapshot collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product 16 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
Buona raccolta di immagini scattate con iPhone 3g. Merita 4 stelle soprattutto perché si tratta del primo prodotto del genere, che ha contribuito notevolmente alla nascita e alla diffusione della Iphoneography. Oggi, sicuramente, in moltissimi album online possiamo trovare immagini di maggiore impatto, ma in quel momento le app fotografiche erano davvero poche e non così complete come quelle attuali.
