Our smartphone cameras have come a long way from back in the day where the maximum resolution they captured was VGA, and where it was more of a novelty to use the camera feature rather than functionality. However looking at todayâ€™s cameras, it is clear that technology has evolved immensely.
So much so that photographer Barb Simkova decided that she would chance it by shooting an entire wedding using just her iPhone 8 Plus (via iMore). According to Simkova, â€œI love that an iPhone allows you to capture something quickly, with little technical knowledge and set up. Portrait mode blows me away â€“ some of the images that come out of the iPhone in portrait mode have such a beautiful depth to them that I find myself exclaiming, ‘THAT was shot on an iPhone?’â€�
Now as you can see in the photos on the website, they look absolutely stunning and in some instances, youâ€™d be hardpressed to tell that they were taken using a smartphone. Of course in terms of sharpness, it isnâ€™t quite as razor-sharp compared to using a â€œproperâ€� professional camera with a high-quality lens, but like we said, the composition, the colors, and the editing do make up for a lot of it.
Note that Simkova isnâ€™t the first photographer to shoot an entire wedding using an iPhone. Last year another photographer took photos at a wedding using the iPhone 6 Plus, which goes to show how far weâ€™ve come along in terms of technology, and also how important things like composition are.
