For me, it was the year that I realized the power of the iPhone. (Or #shotoniphone, as the cool kids say.) Of course we’ve been talking for years about how DSLR’s are being threatened by the camera that’s always with us, but this is the first time that I’ve been truly impressed by the iPhone.
Far too many of my photos are of firefighting, but that also proves a point: firefighting is a situation that I don’t want to risk or don’t have time to whip out a DSLR. Is an iPhone better than a glorious full frame DSLR? Yep, because if it were up to the DSLR, many of the following images would never have been captured.
