iPhone 6 Photography Hand Book


This easy-to understand, step-by-step guide to your model 6 or 6s iPhone fully explains how photos and videos can be captured, viewed, stored, organized, edited and shared with other people or other devices. Clearly written, and organized into 50 topics, it pulls together answers to many of the questions you might have about using the iPhone creatively including how, why and when you use each of its features. If you are thinking of shedding that bulky and heavy SLR, at least part of the time, this may be the book that lures you into a more mobile and connected world of photography.
