    Amazon Exclusive: A Letter from Allan Hoffman, Author of Create Great iPhone Photos

    Dear Amazon Readers,

    I?ve owned lots of cameras, but I?ve never owned one as fun and versatile as my iPhone camera.

    Is the iPhone the world?s greatest camera? I think so, and I?m not alone in this. A growing number of professional photographers, including several with photos in my book, have come to view the iPhone camera as a brilliant tool for photographic creativity and experimentation.

    As one professional photographer told me recently (in an email from Afghanistan, where he is embedded with the Marines): ?As cameras go, it might be the best piece of gear I?ve ever used.?

    What?s the source of the excitement? The breathtakingly diverse variety of apps, for everything from creating photo booth strips to adding a self-timer to your iPhone camera. There are thousands of photography apps available at the App Store, and it can be a challenge to know how to choose the best of them. That?s where my book comes in. Create Great iPhone Photos tells you about the best photography apps, explains how to use them, and provides a source of inspiration with brilliant color photographs.

    Here?s just a brief selection of images in the book and the apps used to create them.
