Filling the frame with the subject can help the viewer focus on its details — like the texture of the reindeer’s fur and antlers

After sifting through tens of thousands of images across the globe, Apple centred on photos captured by 77 individuals. The people behind them come from a range of backgrounds, ages, professions and with differing photographic experience.

Their photos are set to feature on billboards and in print advertising in 70 cities across 24 countries as part of an Apple campaign to celebrate iPhone users’ creativity.

Here are a few of the best photos in their full glory, along with some of the techniques used to create them.

Shooting from an upward angle in a narrow passage creates an intriguing perspective. In this photo, the angle captures not only the buildings’ looming presence but also a soft strip of sky that illuminates them.
