Always Landscape, Never Portrait

Think of this more as a public service announcement than a “how to.” When you take pictures with your iphone, HOLD THE CAMERA SIDEWAYS.

You may think that I’m being some kind of camera snob by asking you to do this. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is a simple reason for my plea:

You have 2 eyes.

Your eyes are next to each other on your head, not on top of each other.

Besides helping you measure distance, side-by-side eyeballs are an evolutionary trait because 90% of the important stuff is to the left and the right. If you’re like me, you also have a neck that can move your eyes up and down if need be.

NOW HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:

Step 1:

Take your iphone like this…

NOT like this…

I know what you’re going to say.

“But Kennedy, I like to hold it with one hand and use my thumb to pull the trigger!”

You can still do that. All you have to do is hit this plus button(volume control). That will trigger the photo or video just like a regular camera.

Give your audience the gift of a full healthy frame.
