    Default iPhone 6 Used for White House Christmas Photos


    For nearly 15 years, photographer Brooks Kraft has had the privilege of photographing the White House, including the annual process of decorating the executive mansion for Christmas.

    This year, however, despite much of the holiday adornment process remaining the same, one difference is quite striking -- the equipment used to photograph the White House.

    This time round, Kraft photographed the Christmas decorating experience with Apple’s new iPhone 6.

    “The iPhone has a lot of depth-of-field, which allows me to shoot the [picture] and move around quickly, which worked in this situation because we were sort of ushered through the rooms and didn’t have a lot of time," he tells Time magazine. "I wanted to photograph most of the spaces with few people in them, so the window of opportunity in which to shoot was brief.”

    “Some of the rooms are quite dark, and I used the 6 Plus for that. And the larger screen also helps," says the photog, who uses both an iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. "There were situations when I was holding the camera above my head to try to make vertical lines more parallel on the edges of the frame, and in that case having the larger screen helped me [compose the shot].”

    The full article and the included images are well worth a perusal. To check it out, click here.

    With all due respect to the photographer, this seems pretty dumb. The phone's camera is capable, but there's no excuse to not be using a far superior DSLR with much better IQ.

    I'll admit this is kinda dumb and probably mostly a marketing ploy, but the phone's camera is definitely not worse by any stretch of the imagination. Anyone who says so is clearly a blind hater.

    Sounds like he probably broke his original PROFESSIONAL camera and had to settle with the iPhone's camera. Sorry but there's no comparison between a mobile phone camera and a true DSLR high-end camera.

    I've seen great pix taken on 4's and 4S's, my 5S has s much better camera than those, and the 6 and 6+ cams are even better.

    A good photographer can take a good picture on a Kodak Instamatic camera. Or on a Polaroid. It's not the equipment, it's the knowledge of photography and the photographer.

    I wish he would have shown more of his pictures in that article.

    Ugh, the artistic merits of photography was already mildly insulting.

    One of the best shots from my wedding came from an iPhone! or I should said one of my favorites. It's becoming more and more common for photographers who need to shoot something quick use their iPhone!!!!

    Whats wrong with what he said? everyone is entitled to an opinion. I dont see why he should be banned from a forum based on the comment he gave...

    He wasn't banned from that one comment he made, he had previously been banned from the forum but created a new account and started talking smack again, that's why he was banned for a second time.

    It still takes better pictures, faster, than any Samsung I've tried. Not better than the Nokia windows phone that has 41 megapixels and a huge lens and sensor, but still.
