Even still, just a little bit of insight can help you capture trophy iPhone photography that lasts a lifetime.

You can take world class shots with an iPhone these days. There’s never been a time in the history of iPhone photography, or any smartphone for that matter, when capture memories is as easy as it is today.
This is a shot I was took to showcase Banded’s 900D tote strap. Banded makes incredibly solid gear, and that was the feature purpose of this photo.
What makes this photo creative is that I intentionally shot into the sun; which is normally not wise to do. However, if you know the rules, then you know when to break them.

Use blockers to block light, and you can create some cool images in the field.
