Instead of my Nikon D-90, I borrowed my husband’s iPhone 6 for the day to see what I could do (and with dreams of taking one magic shot that would find its way onto one of those Apple iPhone advertising posters!). I especially loved experimenting with the iPhone post-production tools as I took each photo (my inner control-freak coming out). Here are some of the results….
