In this iPhone photography training, I'm going to show you how to photograph small objects like this dinosaur up close to make them look larger than life using just your iPhone. I’m using an iPhone 11 Pro in this demonstration, but this can also be done with an iPhone X or other smart phones that have lens options to be able to zoom in close.
Here's what you need to be able to do this on your own:
1. an iPhone or smartphone that has multiple lenses so you can properly zoom in on a small object to photograph. Try to find something under 2 inches tall
2. A setting to give the object context. For instance, I’m using a forest floor to make the dinosaur look like he is roaming wild in the forest.
Grab a small object, your iPhone, find a fun background and watch this video to learn how to make small objects look larger than life!
Once you have your object and scene selected, tap the screen to use the x2 lens.
Now compose your shot.
I travel for work by airplane, car and sometimes even by boat to photograph weddings, events, and products. I’ve been traveling for professional photography shoots for over 15 years. Over the course of a decade, I have developed a packing list of camera gear and supplies that is compact, lightweight, but as versatile as possible. This list of gear is great for natural lighting (like what you would capture at a wedding or lifestyle photo shoot), but it also has some basics for lighting up products and portraits. I feel confident to capture anything I need to with this camera gear in tow.
It’s important to note, I NEVER check my camera bodies or lenses. If I ever have to check anything you see on this list, it would be batteries, chargers, diffusers and other easily replaceable and less expensive gear. The larger roller bag and the smaller sling pack can be carry on luggage for you so you never have to worry about anyone else handling your precious cargo! I also...
