iPhone Workflow

After completing Exercise 1 and Exercise 2 of my DPP course I thought I’d try and create a workflow for my iPhone, since I use it to take photos too.

There are some key differences compared to the workflows I created for using my DSLR. The most obvious thing that everything happens in the phone. It’s a camera, photo-processing and distribution outlet all in one tiny phone. Therefore the steps are considerably less. The pre-shoot phase is extremely short and doesn’t need to be carried out long before taking the photo. During the shoot is very much dependent on how you hold the phone due to the lack of zoom. Once you’ve taken the photo the main difference in the post-shoot phase is that the distribution can often come before archiving an image. It is so easy to tweak the image and then send it in a text message or upload it to a social networking site. The archiving often come later when you’ve connected the phone to a computer.
