Annabel Williams Portraiture Masterclass

Using an iPhone

‘I

love shooting with my Apple iPhone,’ says Annabel. ‘I’m particularly

fond of the Hipstamatic and Camera+ functions. I love Hipstamatic

because you never quite know what you’re going to get – in fact, it

reminds me of working with cross-processed film years ago. With Camera+

you have more control and can do all sorts of things to the picture in a

few simple clicks, making pretty ordinary pictures look amazing.

However,

if you are taking photographs on a proper shoot, where you are

controlling the lighting and so on, then just picking 
up your iPhone

can result in some great shots.
‘I am always careful to keep the

subject’s face more in the centre of the shot when using apps,’ says

Annabel. ‘Apps tend to do weird things to the edges, so you need to

check that you don’t get colours bleeding into the face, for example.

With objects this is fine, though, and just adds to the wacky look,

particularly with Hipstamatic.’
