have a client who trusted me, and a great support team
on regular cameras. I was shooting with the iPhone and
directing the team at the same time, so the client got
very good “regular” coverage too.
JT: Could the iPhone ever replace your DSLR?
SB: Absolutely not. It just offered me a new way of
looking at the assignment, but it’s not a replacement for
my regular gear. I liked that I could play with the images,
post-process and share them immediately. And I liked
that they come out somewhere between documentary or
photojournalism and what I would call fine art, closer to
paintings (like the image above). It enables me to work
in a non-intrusive way, but I don’t see myself shooting
another wedding on the iPhone, unless of course
someone hires me for this type of coverage.
