When photographer Lee Morris posted images from this set on his site, some of his readers claimed they were the best photos he’d had ever taken. The joke? This behind-the-scenes video reveals how they were captured:
…on an iPhone 3GS (not even iPhone 4!) to silence those who, week after week, complained that their cameras weren’t nice enough to take pretty pictures.
The above clip is about 10 minutes long, but it’s a fun watch all the same. Not only will you discover Morris’ secrets behind the shots (a beautiful model, retouch artist, plenty of lighting—that’s most important part—and a strip of Velcro to mount the 3GS to a tripod) but you can enjoy a possibly staged but still funny moment when the photoshoot is interrupted by a phone call.
Now, if only the iPhone came with a few thousand watts of lights… [fstoppers] [Credit: Gizmodo]
