When it comes to photography, most of the time I’m in a zoom mode. Shooting action pix means that I’m trying to get as close as I can to my subject and (usually) the ball or disc. I love seeing expressions close up.
But last week when I was snapping shots with my iPhone 4S of my younger son and our pal Eric playing disc golf, I discovered something new: I loved the iPhone camera’s great wide-angle view!
The iPhone’s digital zoom is pathetic. Of course, digital zoom is an abomination in any camera, barely better than no photo at all.
But that same iPhone camera shines when the angle is wide. It’s able to tell more of the photographic story.
Every now and then even sports photographers need to widen their view!
