In 2016 more than one trillion photographs were taken, and most of them were made with cell phone cameras. Apple’s iPhone is the most popular smartphone – more than one billion of them have been sold worldwide. Although I continue to use my Nikon dSLRs and lenses for most of my Ohio landscape photography, my favorite camera is the one I always have with me – my iPhone 7 Plus. Several of the 170 images in my new book, Ohio in Photographs: A Portrait of the Buckeye State, were taken with my iPhone, and my new eBook, iPhone Landscape & Nature Photography, will be released later this year.
If you would like to improve your iPhone landscape and nature photography, join me for a half-day workshop at the Ashland Public Library on Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 9 am to 1 pm. This program is packed with information on how to take great landscape and nature photographs with your iPhone, as well as some of the best apps for capturing iPhone photos and fine-tuning and sharing them on your iPhone, iPad, PC, or Mac. During this fun, half-day program you will learn:
– The best settings for your iPhone, and when and how to use the Flash, HDR, Grid and Panorama options;
– The best capture apps (mostly free or $1-$5) for your iPhone, and how to use them to take sharp, colorful, well-exposed photos;

Most of the techniques and apps discussed in this program are also applicable to Android phones, but this program is specifically designed for iPhone users.
