For those wondering/asking how I put this piece together, I can say it was relatively simple, but difficult to repeat. I used a Joby tripod to keep the iPhone 4 steady, I used ClearCam enhanced mode for extra detail and texture, increasing the image to 11 megapixels. I shot the subject on off-white paper, to improve simplicity. Finally, i sharpened the image a bit,converted to a sort of two tone/ grayscale image in post processing, and added some texture to the backround using Jixipix VintageScene. (that app has some great customizable textures, and allows for larger image sizes.) So thats about it!

That means alot. I would highly recommend the joby Gorilla mobile. It’s small but flexible and Works great in many situations. It it a top notch product and is very reasonably priced.

I was very impressed with how you captured that depth and texture of the object; just really perfect. Log in to Reply Robert Mullen on February 11, 2011 at 6:57 am Thanks Craig! For this shot, getting the lighting right was trial and error. I use a Joby tripod which helps. I shot for this piece at least 10 times until I got it just right. This one was more difficult because of all the depth and texture. Log in to Reply Craig Anthony Perkins on February 10, 2011 at 11:31 pm Stunningly beautiful! Probably a silly question but, how are you getting such perfect lighting on this? Log in to Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
