Throughout the year, I post photographs of my White House work on a regular basis to my Instagram, @PeteSouza.
Many followers have inquired about whether a certain photograph is taken with an iPhone or DSLR (digital single lens reflex camera). In choosing the photographs for my year on Instagram, I decided to select only iPhone photographs that were captured in the square format on an iPhone. For many purists, the square format was the original inspiration for Instagram. And I certainly admire those that continue to post only square photos taken with a smart phone.
My approach to my Instagram feed continues to be all square photos are taken with an iPhone, and full-frame horizontals and verticals are taken with a DSLR (usually a Canon 5DMark3, but I’ve also posted some from Sony, Nikon and Leica cameras).
I love the camera on my iPhone — it’s the main reason I upgrade every year. Apple still has room for improvement however, and I can’t wait for the day when I will finally ditch my DSLR/mirrorless setup and go iPhone only. In theory I could do so now, but I’d miss a few things, including the ability to take true long exposure photos.
In the meantime, make sure to check out Pete’s shots.
