Weekly Photo Contest: Lens Flare!

It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- lens flare! With all the hype surrounding purple flare on the iPhone 5, we figured it'd be fun to have a photo contest dedicated to lens flare. The winning entry will not necessarily contain purple lens flare, however, so don't consider this a requirement. Just get creative with lens flare and if purple flare adds to the creativity, then by all means, try to include it!

Congrats to jamesdaly for winning last week's Instagram photo contest!

iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4S: Camera shootout

One of the anticipated features of the iPhone 5 was its new camera. Now, even though Apple didn't boast too much about how much better the camera is, they did say it has a new sensor with better HDR and low-light capabilities. They also managed to cram all of that glass into a body that's 18% thinner than the previous iPhone. Lenses like depth, so getting even the same quality out of a camera 18% thinner is an impressive feat of engineering. Despite all this, many people, myself included, were still expecting noticeable improvements to the iPhone 5's camera and in my review of the iPhone 5's camera, I repeatedly mentioned that the colors and vibrancy of the photos were a huge improvement over the iPhone 4S -- but was I right?

How to take awesome HDR photos with your iPhone

Have you ever wondered what that HDR toggle in your iPhone's camera options is for? And why you want to use it? HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and refers to a scene that includes both bright and dark elements -- the sun, reflecting off water, with deep shadows in the tree lines, or even a regularly lit person standing against the glare of an open window. When we talk about HDR photography, we are referring to taking photographs of such scenes. Unfortunately, unlike the human eye, camera sensors need a little extra help to get that done. So, in this week's iPhoneography column, we're going to discuss more details about HDR and how best use your iPhone's camera to get the most dynamically awesome photos ever.
