      Recently Apple sent me a great article on how to shoot pictures with the iPhone, complete with some excellent videos. I haven’t had the chance to watch all the videos yet, but I plan to this summer to brush up on my iPhone photography skills. Take a spin through some of these and see if they help make it easier for you to master iPhone photography:

      At one time, Apple was offering free phone sessions on Taking Photos Further, as seen here:

      It doesn’t look like Apple is offering it, but for those with AppleCare that need assistance with photos, customers can likely call in. Apple Stores are still offering photography sessions it seems:

      Point and shoot. That’s been my practice with the iPhone in the past, but now there are better and more creative ways using the device to capture every angle and depth. Normally I use my regular camera equipment for planned events, but when caught empty handed there’s always the trusty iPhone 8plus. Thanks for the links Nathan!

      Many thanks for the info, Nathan. I’m fortunate to have an Apple store fairly close by and have taken the opportunity to partake in several of its training sessions.

      Each one has really been worth it for the insight and tips that often don’t surface elsewhere.

      What I like in particular is that the Genius’ don’t overtly push new kit but just work (and teach) with whatever kit you bring in.

      Glad to assist! I have a high-end Canon 7D DSLR when I need to produce “fancier” shots, but my iPhone has replaced my point and shoot camera. I’m certainly not getting enough out of it, so I look forward to watching the videos.

      Great to know about the store sessions. I wish we’d get an Apple Store close so I could drop by. They do seem like a great way to learn more about Apple products.

        Same here Nathan, and like you, I wish we had an Apple store nearby.

      We have one about an hour and a half away, but it’s also in an area with its share of crime (not the best place to take high-end Apple gear to). My city is getting large enough where we could do for one. Good news is our Best Buy is now an authorized service provider, so it’s an option for repairs.

      Apple sent me a range of additional links about working with photos on the iPhone, so I thought I’d include them here to add to the list:

        I did a cursory read thru all those links. None of them says anything on how to remove personal metadata from the photo’s or movies. I shouldn’t be surprised, it’s not a strong point to indicate some data contained within a photo you take with their phone could pose harm to the user. Then again, that wasn’t the main selling point of those links.

      I did this once but forgot exactly how I did it. If I remember it, I’ll report back.

      I posted a  Topic  “Sanitize your photo in Windows before posting it online”

      I found the Mac-equivalent for those who need it. It’s in the Photos app. Select the photos and click File>Export, and un-check the boxes for the metadata you don’t want to include (such as location). There may also be a similar way to do it on iOS itself (will have to check).

      I watched the videos today. Some interesting content that did help me learn how to do much more with taking photos with my iPhone.
