The Best Camera Is The One That's With You: iPhone Photography by Chase Jarvis

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

A beacon of creativity with boundless energy, Chase Jarvis is well known as a visionary photographer, director, and social artist. In The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You, Chase reimagines, examines, and redefines the intersection of art and popular culture through images shot with his iPhone.

The pictures in the book, all taken with Chase’s iPhone, make up a visual notebook—a photographic journal—from the past year of his life. The book is full of visually-rich iPhone photos and peppered with inspiring anecdotes.

Two megapixels at a time, these images have been gathered and bound into a book that represents a stake in the ground. With it, Chase underscores the idea that an image can come from any camera, even a mobile phone. As Chase writes, “Inherently, we all know that an image isn’t measured by its resolution, dynamic range, or anything technical. It’s measured by the simple—sometimes profound, other times absurd or humorous or whimsical—effect that it can have upon us. If you can see it, it can move you.”

This book is geared to inspire everyone, regardless of their level of photography knowledge, that you can capture moments and share them with our friends, families, loved ones, or the world at the press of a button.

Readers of The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You will also enjoy the iPhone application Chase Jarvis created in conjunction with this book, appropriately named Best Camera. Best Camera has a unique set of filters and effects that can be applied at the touch of a button. Stack them. Mix them. Remix them. Best Camera also allows you to share directly to a host of social marketing sites via www.thebestcamera.com, a new online community that allows you to contribution to a living, breathing gallery of the best iPhone photography from around the globe.

Together, the book, app, and website, represent a first-of-its-kind ecosystem dedicated to encouraging creativity through picture taking with the camera that you already have. The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You—shoot!

Customer Reviews

Last reviewer was joking, this sample is a joke.

Chase, somebody... Anybody... Fix this!

Did anyone even proof the sample before it went up?

The Sample is truly a Joke

This is the first review I've written in the book store and I felt compelled to write it. The sample is just the legal and publication disclosures at the beginning of the book, i.e. Apple, Apple iPhone etc. Are trademarks owned by Apple. To call it a sample is just an insult to the term and reflects poorly on the author (although I'm sure he probably had nothing to do with it) however since it is his name associated with this deceitful practice I hope he takes it up with those who control what is provided in a sample, that is provided in his name. I for one will not be spending $15 sight unseen for this book. It gets one star because I could not give it zero and publish this review.

Are You Kidding?

If I'm going to spend $11 on and Ebook, can I please see a REAL sample?
