Quick read and this is very outdated. Initially I thought this was a guide for all iPhone photography but this book came out in 2011 back when the iPhone 3 and 4 was around. If you have an iPhone 5 and up then you can use the tips given with a grain of salt. Also the apps stated throughout the book are outdated as well. I did enjoy discovering new artists though.

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it looked good from flipping through it at the library. Not really worth much to me--it should be titled something along the lines of "Photo Apps for iPhones" because it goes into great detail about how to use those. And honestly, it seems most apps--with the exception of tiltshiftfocus--offer the same exact filters and options. So I guess I thought the iPhone had more capabilities for taking pictures without downloading any apps and that this book would sh ...more

I have enjoyed going through this little book. There's no real earth shattering new information - I have a number of the photo apps on my iPhone already, but it's nice to have all this information in one place.

Also, this book has inspired me to really think about the pictures I take with my iPhone, and to try to be more creative with them. The main reason I bought the book was all of the suggestions/things to think about when taking pictures. I probably won't go through every one of them, but I

As an instructional guide, it's very basic, so if you're experienced with using your iPhone camera you won't learn a lot that is new. What I really enjoyed, though, were the pages and pages of different pictures people had taken. There's a lot of neat shots and great ideas for your own work. I enjoyed simply flipping through and seeing the creativity of other photographers.

A good little book, mostly on how to use various apps to edit photos on your phone. With how quickly new apps are introduced, I suspect there are many other apps nowadays that may surpass the ones listed (and it also appears to have been written pre-Instagram), but the photos by the author are sure to spark some creative ideas.

I am so excited I discovered this book through a blog. Just perfect for those of you with iPhone and take lots of pictures that you love to put through photography apps. Well written, concise, easy-peasy to follow. She has done an outstanding job with this one tiny point of view when it comes to photography. She is also a co author of Shutter Sisters.

This would be a great book for someone who had absolutely no idea that a smart phone can take pictures. It's like a 20 second commercial for iPhone photography. No useful technique information here and you can pretty much learn everything in this book by playing around with a smart phone and some photography apps.
Not quite a tbr-grower per se, but an app collection grower. A very handy instructional and inspirational book for iPhone photography (the iPhoneography of the title). The more common picture taking/manipulating apps are profiled: hipstamatic, photoshop express, photo fx, etc. The author has a very encouraging tone and the sections on finding inspiration are very well-thought out.

This book was inspirational in terms of providing examples, exercises, and website information. There's a lot of basic Apple information and many of the apps cost money. (You can find free versions of similar apps and so just look around a bit.)

I wouldn't say this book is a MUST READ but it was fun to read. I discovered several new apps (some of which became favorites) thanks to the book's recommendations, and reading about other "iphoneographer"s styles provided some inspiration.

I'm an Android guy, but a lot of what was in here is useful for phone photography in general, not just the iphone. Weird that it didn't mention Instagram at all.

3.5. As with many tech books, The Art of iPhoneography is already dated. The book still has useful app recommendations as well as photo prompts and tips.

Entertaining...nothing too mind blowing. But enjoyable.

I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. The author includes hundreds of great photos, but I didn't feel inspired, I felt overwhelmed!
