Photographers who do not understand their basic rights tend to approach legal issues with blissful ignorance, extreme caution, or reckless abandon. Foolish souls may cross the lines to obtain images, while overly cautious photographers may miss out on once-in-a-lifetime opportunities in fear of legal repercussions. In the end, each of these photographers suffers as a result of not understanding the legal issues associated with photography. In this book, intellectual property attorney and photographers-rights advocate Bert Krages spells out exactly what you need to know to protect yourself and your business when planning, shooting, publishing, and selling your photography. -- Bert P. Krages

We all take quick shots of the world around us—but shooting truly exceptional images with your iPhone requires a little more care. It forces you to slow down, observe the moment more deeply, and apply your artistic eye to capturing the true essence of the scene before you. Happily, the iPhone’s limited controls actually make it an idea tool for delving into this process because it requires you to strip down your approach to the fundamentals and rely on what has always been the best part of the image making process: the human mind. In this book, you’ll learn to use a camera phone and apps to make far more interesting photographs. Along with some technical information, experienced professional photojournalist Michael Fagans has included insightful information about his mind-set when shooting, his approach to composition, and how he handles other creative aspects of the photography process.
