iPhoneography is an art of creating photos with an Apple iPhone.
It's a style of mobile photography that differs from other forms of digital photography in that images are shot and processed on the iOS device. It does not matter whether a photo is edited using different graphics applications or not. However, this issue is often argued over among iPhone photographers.
iPhoneography has grown quickly since the original iPhone 2G with its 2 megapixel camera was released in 2007. As the iPhone cameras improved in both resolution and image quality, more professional photographers ventured into this art form and started recognizing the value of an iPhone image. The New York Times published a summer series of reportages using Instagram in August, 2011.
The photographer Damon Winter won prizes for his Hipstamatic photos of the war in Afghanistan.
Instagram is an online photo-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take a picture, apply a digitalfilter to it, and share it on a variety of social networking services, including its own. A distinctive feature is that it confines photos to a square shape, similar to Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid images, in contrast to the 4:3 aspect ratio typically used by mobile device cameras.
