Studio Product Shot Using Smartphone


PetaPixel posted this really cool video by Alex Koloskov founder of Photigy. He puts a Hasselblad camera up against the iPhone's camera in a product shot of a glass of liquid.

To take the images he used a single continuous LED light. For the iPhone shot he used the 645 PRO Mk II app (available in the iTunes app store for $3.99). The amazing part is when you compare the Hasselblad shot against the iPhone the difference is minimal and hardly noticeable to an untrained eye. Both are great shots!

Alex states his point clearly in the video. Is it really the lack of expensive gear you have that's holding you back from becoming a better photographer or is it lack of experience, knowledge, and creativity? The proof is in the final images.

This should be inspiring to anyone who can't afford top of line gear. Maybe you can't get those great images that require a nice macro lens but you can take other creative and interesting shots. Work with what you have to learn and grow.

As Alex states on his website, one of these images are from the Hasselblad and one is from the iPhone.
