Still not using your iPhone for ‘serious’ photography?

Earlier this year I managed to catch the CreativeLive iPhoneography Workshop with Jack Hollingsworth — well worth my time. I learned a lot and saw how others use the iPhone as a creative photography tool.

Today I found this cool video by Jack Hollingsworth talking about how his photography life was changed by the iPhone. Take a moment and check it out for yourself — especially if you’re still thinking that this little device isn’t a ‘real’ camera 😉
