Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Chase Jarvis is well known as a visionary photographer, director, and social artist. He is widely recognized for re-imagining, examining, and redefining the intersection of art and popular culture through still and moving pictures. While commercial work for brands like Nike, Pepsi, Volvo, Reebok, Apple, and Red Bull have earned him recognition from the International Photography Awards, The Advertising Photographers of America, Prix de la Photographie Paris, and numerous other industry buzz centers, his recent push into personal work and fine art has rapidly gained the attention of curators and art critics, mainstream audiences, and celebrity circles worldwide. The online hub for Jarvis and his work is at http://www.chasejarvis.com.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Ich war ziemlich gespannt auf das Buch. Ich wollte gerne lernen, welche Techniken der Autor nutzt, um mit dem iPhone Fotos zu machen. Statt dessen erhielt ich ein Buch mit vielleicht vier Seiten Text, auf denen gesagt wird, dass das iPhone die beste Kamera ist, weil man sie immer dabei hat. Mehr nicht. Zudem gab es jede Menge Bilder. Diese haben nur einen schlagwortartigen Namen. Manchmal ist angegeben, wo die Aufnahme erfolgt. Ansonsten gibt es keine Informationen, nichts zur Technik oder Absicht des Fotografen. Zudem sind die Bilder eher durchschnittlich. Bei ca. 60 % der Bilder handelt es sich um gewöhnliche aufnahmen, die mit einem Filter in den Ecken abgedunkelt wurden. Es war wenig Inspirierendes enthalten. Ich denke, dass man auf einer gewöhnlichen Foto-Sharing-Seite mehr und bessere Bilder findet und auch etwas von den Absichten des jeweiligen Fotografen erfahren kann.

Meine Empfehlung: nicht kaufen.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Nur zum Verständniss: Ich schätze Chase Jarvis' Arbeiten sehr. Auch die Art und Weise, wie er Techniken vermittelt, sei es über Podcasts oder seinen Blog. Der Mann ist Weltklasse, was u.A. professionelle Outdoor-Fotografie angeht!

Sein kleiner Bildband ist erstmal auch ganz hübsch, zeigt er doch sehr gut komponierte Schnappschüsse, die Jarvis "nebenbei" macht, wenn er unterwegs ist. Wird somit auch ganz dem Motto des Titels gerecht. Und zeigt auch seine Sichtweise auf Details im Alltag. Ganz untechnisch und unkompliziert.

Leider empfinde ich die Bilder Allesamt quasi als "schon gesehen". Es gibt reichlich gute, kleine Ausstellungen, ob Real oder in diversen Internet-Bildergallerien, oder kleine Büchlein mit ebensolchen Momentaufnahmen. Ob Diese mit einer Lomo, IXUS, Holga, Polaroid oder eben iPhone gemacht wurden, finde ich persönlich zweitrangig. Es bleiben Schnappschüsse. Wenn man gut komponierte, farblich ansprechende und gut zusammengestellte von Chase Jarvis sucht, ist man halt bei seinem Büchlein gelandet ...

Insgeheim hatte ich gehofft, dass Jarvis irgendwie etwas Besonderes aus dem iPhone holt. Besondere Sequenzen, gebastelte Panoramen der extremen Landschaften die er besucht, vielleicht auch skurile Making-Of-Schnappschüsse während seiner Auslandsproduktionen ... viele neue Sichtweisen halt, die Anderen verwehrt bleiben, weil nicht Jedermann so oft ins Backcountry rund um den Globus kommt.

Aber Eines bleibt für mich. Die wiederholte Erkenntnis, nach Sichten solcher Momentaufnahmen, immer eine Kamera dabeizuhaben.

Mein absoluter Buchtipp: Das Buch von Chase Jarvis, das in cooler, kultiger Art und Weise zeigt, was man alles aus ner iPhone-Kamera rausholen kann - und nicht zuletzt, das Dir die beste Kamera nichts nutzt, wenn Du sie nicht dabei hast. Viele tolle Bilder mit der kleinen iPhone-Kamera erstellt, und mit einfacher Bildbearbeitung zu kleinen Kunstwerken gemacht.
Besondere Empfehlung an all die, die das Ohr am Puls der Zeit haben...

Wonderful and inspiring 1. Oktober 2009
Von Craig Dickson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a brilliant demonstration of what a talented and creative artist can do with the most basic tools. Chase Jarvis gives us 200+ photos taken with his iPhone and processed only using iPhone-based tools (no Photoshop!). In a way, this is comparable to the kinds of exercises that are sometimes done in other artistic fields, such as painting a picture using only two primary colors or writing a novel without the letter E (both of which have been done) -- a conscious device to spur experimentation to discover ways of working with or around the limitation one has chosen to adopt. But there is a crucial difference here: the use of the iPhone is itself a solution to the problem of not always having a camera in hand and ready to shoot whenever a photographic opportunity presents itself. And this is the point of the book: that there are always such opportunities around us, and that you don't necessarily need an expensive camera rig to catch them. Jarvis writes, "There are at least ten great pictures waiting to be taken within ten meters of where you are standing right now." This book is his proof.

Another inspiring aspect of the book is the way Jarvis sometimes takes advantage of the iPhone's limitations. It is not a high-resolution camera, nor are its optics any match for the better compact point-and-shoots on the market today (let alone any SLR), but Jarvis shows that this can be useful. Some of his pictures actually benefit from imperfect focus, digital noise, and limited dynamic range. In a few cases, I found solutions in his work to failed pictures that I have taken. I can see now that those pictures failed, at least in part, because the images were technically too precise. I played by the usual rules of photography (correct focus and exposure, etc.) when I should have broken them. "Louvers" on page 206 is one example of this. I shot a picture once very like this one, but it was too clear and too detailed; anyone looking at it would have said, "Okay, a picture of louver blinds, so what?" Jarvis' picture of the same subject is more mysterious, and therefore more interesting, due to blur and "incorrect" exposure. It becomes an abstract graphic design (and a good one) rather than just a shot of vertical blinds.

I think anyone interested in photography should buy this book. You may not "get" it right away, and it may be best not to rush through the whole thing in one sitting; but over time, I think it will help your mental and creative gears to turn in new ways, and the pictures really are great in their own low-tech way.

It's All About The Idea And The Execution 25. Februar 2010
Von M. Caruso - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is great for one reason. It's simplicity is inspiring. Everyone takes pictures with their camera phones, but most people just brush them off as "not good enough." This book is proof-positive that "not good enough" can be "good enough to publish a book with." On top of this, add what other reviews have called The Best Camera "Trifecta" and you get an ecosystem that is both creative and technically genius. Great work, Chase.

My thoughts 25. November 2009
Von Lawrence Ripsher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I reviewed this book on my blog (and provided a few samples with permission from the author). Here's what I wrote:

Chase Jarvis is an award winning, internationally renowned photographer based in Seattle, WA. While Chase is well known for his innovative commercial work, he has also gained a large following through online forums due to his willingness to share advice / tips on his blog, his inspiring collection of personal photography and his advocacy of social networking.

"The Best Camera is the one that's with you" is his latest initiative, a 256 page photography book featuring only images taken with his iPhone. The book was released in 2009, and also coincides with his online iPhone photo ecosystem via the website [...]. I purchased my copy through Amazon a couple of weeks ago and just managed to get around to reviewing it.

The book itself comes in a minimalist, small format (6 x 6 x 0.7 inches). There is little in the way of written work, consisting mostly of images and titles, with a few of Chase's personal inspirational quotes scattered throughout. The photos are clearly the focus of the book, with each one attempting to underscore the statement that it's "the photographer that matters". Chase cover a wide range of both subjects and locations with images shot from plane windows, around the streets of Seattle, in bars and restaurants and by hotel pools. It's clear that Jarvis' iPhone goes pretty much everywhere he does. Many get a heavy dose of post processing, using a variety of filters. Several shots are black and white, others highly saturated mimicking a Holga or Lomo like effect. Others receive a lensbaby like finishing. The effects are wide and varied and it keeps things fresh. The quality of the shots themselves vary. A couple rank among my favourite images I've seen this year (irrespective of the camera used). Others are more slivers of insight into Jarvis' daily life - immensely meaningful to the subjects and the photographer and inspirational examples to anyone else.

Chase's work in "The Best Camera..." reminds me somewhat of the groundbreaking photos from Hiromix (real name Hiromi Toshikawa), a female Japanese photographer who rocketed to fame in the mid 1990's when she won a high profile Canon competition in Japan at age 19. Her original work could be characterised as the simple photo diary, and spawned a generation of female photographers who started seeing their every day lives around them a little differently. Chase's promotion of the camera phone as a meaningful photographic tool could potentially do the same.

In addition to the images, the quotations found within are of particular interest. "Each photograph is a tiny invention" and "No longer do I tire of the lounge or the crappy food or the painfully lines at airports" are both statements that have lived with me long after my first reading. Chase's quote about the gourmet chef who comes home and makes himself a grilled cheese sandwich is pure class. It's the perfect example of "strong words, softly spoken" - a case brilliantly argued without a great deal of fuss or words. In doing so, "The Best Camera..." quietly and effectively goes about putting to shame anyone whose ever muttered "there's nothing to shoot" or "if only I had a more expensive camera".

Undoubtedly with work like this, there will be some critiques who will pour scorn on the image quality found on some of the pages. The digital photography industry has given birth to a generation of "pixel peepers" and "The Best Camera..." stares down and challenges that trend. The few who walk away from the book thinking "so what" are the ones who are are missing a bigger point when it comes to photography. Inspiration is often what you make of it.

While the book benefits from a close association with the iPhone, it's not about the iPhone as a photographic tool. They key aim of the book is simpler - a demonstration that you don't need the latest or best equipment to produce great images. However, even with Jarvis' status, the book will ultimately will live or die by the quality of the work found within. And on that basis, how does it rate? My verdict is that the book absolutely succeeds in what it sets out to do - to challenge, to lead by example and to inspire. While it's a different experience than flipping through a commercial portfolio, the images are all about inspiring the reader to go out and shoot something different (or shoot something ordinary, but do it differently) and by this measure, "The Best Camera..." triumphs in every way.

Inspiring 30. September 2009
Von David duChemin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Chase has done it again. The Best Camera is like visual proof that Jarvis' manifesto (the best camera is the one that's with you, and it doesn't have to be fancy) is right on the money. His images, and the way they've been curated into this mini-exhibit, are inspiring. It's not a how-to book, in fact it claims to be nothing more than what it is - a collection of images that re-examine the intersection of art and pop-culture. If you're looking for technique, move along. If you're looking for inspiration, this is a great reminder that the brand wars (Canon vs. Nikon) are irrelevant and that the camera really has so little to do with this art. I love this book and will pick it up time and time again just to stir the paint and poke the muse a little. Well done, Chase.

A cool little book that opened my eyes as to what really makes a great picture... 31. Oktober 2009
Von Thomas Duff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Best Camera Is The One That's With You: iPhone Photography by Chase Jarvis showed up in the mail today somewhat unexpectedly. I started to leaf through it (it's small and nearly all pictures), and was quickly distracted from whatever it was that I was supposed to be doing. Jarvis makes the case that the best camera for a particular picture at any given time is the one you happen to have on hand. My DSLR is of little use if it's still in the camera case at home. He shows how you can take and enhance photos using nothing but the iPhone and an iPhone app called Best Camera. I normally don't buy many iPhone apps (in fact, all the ones I use to date are free), but I spent the $2.99 (yeah, I was feeling extravagant!) to check it out. Between the app and this book, I'm sold.

In terms of looking for in-depth technical discussion on how the iPhone camera works and compares to other options, forget it. Jarvis doesn't go into *any* of that. Instead, he takes you on a photo exposition of normal scenes and images that you would probably overlook on a daily basis. But with some decent composition (closeup, blur, cropping), you can get images that are quite striking. Then using the Best Camera app, you can apply filters (vignette, warming, saturation, etc) that add that extra zing to the picture without taking it outside of your iPhone. Granted, it's not PhotoShop, but then it's not meant to be. The whole concept here is to use the camera you have to take the shots you'd normally ignore or miss.

The images inspired me to do better, and there was one phrase that really caught my attention. Actually, there were a couple. "No longer do I tire of the lounge or the crappy food or the painfully long lines at the airport." With the iPhone and imagination, you should be able to entertain yourself for hours. "There are at least ten great pictures waiting to be taken within ten meters of where you are standing right now." That sort of goes hand-in-hand with the other statement. I always find myself looking for "the perfect picture", when in reality there are a lot of great pictures to be taken all around me. It's just a matter of opening my eyes, getting out of my normal mindset, and *taking the picture*!

The Best Camera Is The One That's With You is a great little book that has me excited again about what I could do with stuff I already have with me everywhere I go...
