Scott Kelby’s iPhone Photography Book is Released

· Andrew Orr · Cool Stuff Found

Professional photographer Scott Kelby has recently published The iPhone Photography Book. It’s filled with tips and tricks to help iPhone users get the most of out their camera and editing techniques. I particularly thought the guide on how to pose people was helpful. To me, taking a good photo of a person is more difficult than taking a good photo of a landscape or building. Travel and landscape photography are covered, as well as how to best organize your photo library and apps you can use to shoot and edit. It’s US$29.95 on Amazon for the paperback, and US$17.29 for the Kindle edition.

iPhone 12 Pro Max next to Apple Magic Keyboard

The security firm that unlocked the iPhone of the San Bernardino shooter has been unveiled, and it’s an Australian company called Azimuth.

Azimuth is a poster child for “white hat” hacking, experts say, which is good-guy cybersecurity research that aims to disclose flaws and disavows authoritarian governments. Two Azimuth hackers teamed up to break into the San Bernardino iPhone, according to the people familiar with the matter, who like others quoted in this article, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.

An interesting story, especially with the connection to Corellium.
