Here's how to take fantastic macro shots on your iPhone

Macro photography allows you to see the world from a different perspective.

Whether you're shooting giant cereal pieces a la "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" or the petals of a flower, you can create fantastic scenes from otherwise ordinary objects. iPhone macro photography is especially exciting: Because your phone is so small, you can get close to objects you might otherwise have a harder time shooting with a DSLR. Here are some of my favorite tips for shooting macro photography on the iPhone 6!

How to take great winter photographs with your iPhone

If you haven't heard, there's currently a rather absurd amount of snow burying my city. I feel pretty lucky in that I don't have to regularly commute much farther from my bed to my desk, but that amount of snow can still drive someone a bit stir-crazy — even if they're used to working from home.

So, rather than give in to the depths of snowy despair, I decided to do something positive with the ridiculous mounds of white fluff outside my door: take some pictures.

Photos for Mac: One week later

Last Thursday Apple released the first developer beta for their all-new Photos for Mac app. A public beta will follow at some point, and the a public release this spring. In the meantime we've published a Photos for Mac FAQ and a Photos for Mac preview. It's still in beta, so everyone needs to adjust expectations accordingly, but it's also the future, and potentially one full of promise.

Photos for OS X isn't going to be a pro app — and that's okay

After the first developer beta of Photos was released last week along with OS X 10.10.3, I got a lot of questions about the app. Little questions, like "Can you still make books and cards?" (Yes.) But also big-picture questions. Is this the next generation of photo management? Will it be enough for prosumers? Do you think it can replace my aging professional workflow?

These are harder questions to answer, because, largely, your workflow is a very personal process. I can guess at what tools you might need, or file formats you want supported, but at the end of the day, only you can decide which features are must-haves and which omissions are deal-breakers.

But I can say one thing, definitively: Photos isn't designed to be a program for professional photography users. At least, not yet. Maybe not ever, but certainly not now.

What it is, however, is a wonderful entry point for new and experienced users alike who want to do more with their photographs. It may not have the power of the pro app — but that's rather the point.

Five tips for beating bad lighting in your iPhone photos

The sun may give us light and life and all good things, but it's around precious few hours when you want to spend time taking good photographs. Indoor and artificial lighting can aid you from shooting in the dark, but, well... not all indoor lighting is created equally. Traditional tungsten bulbs can cause horrible yellow tints; fluorescents can make your photo too blue; and LEDs can make everything look washed out and pale. If you've ever found yourself in a tricky lighting spot as a photographer and want a few aces up your sleeve for dealing with it, read on.
