The iPhone Fashion Shoot By Lee Morris
(Get article and bigger videos here.)
Lee Morris just wanted to prove again (I myself need a lot of reminding of this) that it's not the camera which does it.
But he got lots of back-flash from it. I think he shot himself in the foot by using professional lights and retoucher. If he'd shot it in daylight and photoshopped it himself (like he always does), people would run out of excuses like "Oh, the pics are only good because of the expensive [...] he uses".
Notice by the way, that it was not even the iPhone 4 with its excellent 5-megapixel camera he used, it was only an iPhone 3Gs with its 3MP camera. And some of his fellow pros told him it was "his best pictures ever", before they heard how they had been made.
He even got flack for the Olympus thing, which clearly was a joke. (He got a letter from an Olympus representative too!)
Here is a good fun audio interview with him.
(And a later article responding to critics.)
