Would you entrust capturing the memory of your wedding day, monumental as it is, to the iPhone 4? One couple decided to allow professional wedding photographer Brian Adams and videographer Rainer Flor to use just the Apple smartphone to shoot photos and videos on their special day. So, how did the pictures and videos turn out?
All things considered, the end result was pretty admirable. We’ve seen the iPhone in action for professional fashion shoots before, and it has been proven that lighting, framing and doing everything else right is sometimes more important than the camera you’re using. Even Ducati used the iPhone 4 to shoot an entire motorcycle commercial last year.
“We want to show the millions of people running around with iPhones in their pocket that the photo and video possibilities are endless,” said Flor.
While the photos and videos in this particular wedding look better than what some amateur wedding photographers can do with big, fancy DSLRs, I’m still a little torn about this gimmick–and that’s exactly what it is. Tighter shots, great depth-of-field, action photos, careful exposure control and file sizes big enough for large prints would be the biggest issues with using an iPhone 4 in shooting a wedding.
Judging from the video below, it looks like there might have been proper cameras and photographers floating about, but if the event was really left up to the Apple smartphone, well, I’m glad it turned out as well as it did.
