A local photographer uses the smartphone’s limitations and strengths to create beautiful images.

(page 1 of 6)

THESE DAYS “PHOTOGRAPHER” is a relative term — in addition to artists who make a living looking through the lens, it can also apply to those with iPhones who snap and edit wide-angle shots and share them with the world just by clicking a button. One such iPhotographer is San Rafael’s Jerry Downs, who recently published Why You Were Born, a selection of imagery (including some iPhone photography) focused on the everyday beauty of the county. “It’s so casual and as a result I end up not taking shooting so seriously; I try things with the iPhone that might not even occur to me with a DSLR,” he says. As the holidays approach, we hope his pictures inspire you to capture impromptu, classic and seasonal moments you’ll want to show off now and revisit later. Check out more of Downs’ work at jerrydownsphoto.com. Click through each page to view Downs' photos.
