2) Very true on the photographer not being dependent on his tools; it's not the camera that takes the picture. Still, when only discussing the tech used, I'd say the iPhone is not the right tool for the job: if one needs to 'imagine what the final photo will look like' it becomes more of a guessing game. Not that people can't make fantastic photos with the iPhone; I just think they should display the entire frame while composing.
Looking forward to see what you were able to capture, one the bloody thing arrives. I'll take a peek at your site, next month or so.
Which was why the guy in the article took 4000 photo's, getting to know the ins and outs of what the iPhone could do.
Practise makes perfect, as they say, learn your camera whatever it is.
btw the HDR can be adjusted, by tapping different areas of the screen, the only thing really missing from the iPhone is the ability to use the flash at the same time to fill in silhouetted faces, although HDR isn't really suitable for things that move like blinking eyelids.
My first camera was a box brownie, I often wouldn't see the results for weeks.
