Editorial Fashion Shoot Taken and Edited Entirely With The iPhone 4S

Back in 2010, Lee Morris set out to prove that you don’t need expensive camera gear to be a photographer by doing an entire fashion shoot using an iPhone 3G; while people were impressed, many nevertheless said that the use of professional studio lighting and post-processing negated the point he was trying to make.

In the above video, photographer Nick Fancher followed in Morris’ footsteps by also doing an entire fashion shoot on an iPhone, only he used nothing more than a reflector and the in-phone editing capabilities of Snapseed and Adobe Photoshop Express for all of his lighting and post processing needs. Even the models, make-up artists, and assistants were all working for trade, meaning that Fancher didn’t spend a single cent on the shoot itself. Considering all that, the results are pretty impressive.
