With the quality of smartphone cameras these days, everyone thinks they can be a photographer, but very few actually shoot good photos. Given the high-resolution images that the iPhone can produce, we know we shouldn’t be surprised by these images, but the fact is there aren’t many professional wedding photographers who can achieve anything quite like this with an iPhone.
Sephi Bergerson loves shooting with his iPhone, but to have a couple who is bold enough to take up this challenge is quite another story. He took these photos with his iPhone, enhanced them with the Snapseed app, and added the Polaroid effect with Polamatic.
Sephi Bergerson: “It was already late morning and we had little time left before I had to catch my flight back home. We took one portrait with lights at the monument and l was looking for more ideas for shots. At close to 11am the light was already harsh and I suddenly thought that we should simply try a few ‘Instagrams’.
“Rishi and Kintan were happy to take the challenge and in the next ten minutes we took six simple snaps. In the car on the way to the airport I quickly edited them and shared them with the couple. It was such a new experience and we all loved it. These may not be award-winning images but it was a fun shoot and we made some great memories. I’d love to shoot a whole wedding with an iPhone but I think the delay with the shutter response will have to be resolved first.”
