These iPhoneography SA winners are true iPhone shutterbugs


Dubbed the world’s most popular camera, the iPhone’s savvy lens has been taking the web by storm ever since it got introduced in 2007. With platforms like Instagram and Flickr popularly fronting this technology (and the talents behind it), iPhoneography has grown to develop a rather impressive community.

Take the fourth annual iPhoneography South Africa 2014 as an example. The event — put together by iStore and MarcForrest — saw an impressive exhibition with categories like Still Life, Abstract, Scenery, and Selfies, of course. Six winners from Johannesburg and six winners from Cape Town were named the top snappers in their respective categories, some were as young a 14.

The photographers (or iPhoneographers) rely on an array of apps like Snapseed, VSCO Cam, LoryStripes and Instagram to leverage Apple’s hardware.

As overall prize-winners in the iPhoneographySA competition, “Found” by Lynsey Anne Hughes of Johannesburg, and “A Star is Born”, by Ernst Ohlhoff of Cape Town, were the standouts of a record array of entries from iPhoneographers across the country.
