Aik Beng Chia, Singapore
“Come nightfall, and the city lights sparkle, Bangkok is one of my favorite cities to photograph. What I love about the city is the gritty feel of life, where high-rise skyscrapers shining in the sunlight contrast with a vibrant, at times shadowy, atmosphere in the back alleys, or Sois. Using iPhone X’s dual OIS and HDR in low light produces clean, crisp images with minimal noise, and it doesn’t resort to overexposing light sources. I prefer to use the Lightroom CC app to further post process the images.”
Maria Jose Govea, Los Angeles
“I’m really lucky because I photograph a lot of musicians and I get to travel a lot for work, following and documenting adventures with very interesting subjects and very inspiring people. I love places with a lot of character and texture (Europe is great for that!), and I also love big outdoor spaces, like an empty beach or a sunflower field. Going to a city I’ve never been before really gets my going, I’m kind of obsessed with the new. Ultimately, a little corner in my house where the light is hitting just right might also be my favorite place at the right time. And that’s the beauty of photography, you never know the million ways that the beauty of light is going to surprise you next. I’m absolutely loving editing on my iPhone with A Color Story. I can get totally lost playing with all the tools and effects and filters. What I like the most is all the possibilities it gives you to have control over an image, and at the same time it is super user friendly. Two thumbs-up!”
Aundre Larrow, New York
“Last year, I was just finishing up the first leg of my stories from my trip; I was dirty, tired and sick of being on the Amtrak. So I took a trip with some loved ones to the beach and took this portrait of my girlfriend partially submerged. It was kind of a weird moment. The sun was setting, we were all pretty pruny, but she insisted on floating for a bit longer. I waded out to her clutching my phone and took this just before a small wave came. It was just so perfect for that moment, and reminded me why I love photography so much. I’m a simple guy. I usually just do my iPhone but occasionally I will throw a Moment lens on there.”
Anwar Yusli, Malaysia
Anwar recently travelled to the state of Jammu and Kashmir in Northern India and was amazed by the diverse blend of cultures in the region combined with breathtaking surroundings. He focused on taking portraits using iPhone X’s Portrait Mode which featured not only the people he met on his journey but also the natural surroundings that are unique to this region.
