War Through an iPhone Camera Lens

Associated Press photographer David Guttenfelder not only documents the war in Afghanistan with traditional digital cameras, he also used an iPhone camera, carried in his flak jacket pocket, coupled with a Polaroid film filter application to photograph the daily lives of Marines, Afghan soldiers and fellow journalists during the military offensive in Marjah, Afghanistan.

What a neat idea to use the iPhone; the pictures are very unique looking.  When scrolling through the pictures it was easy to forget that they were current, and not from Vietnam or another war a few decades ago.

Shake It Photo is the application which the photographer used.  It’s only 99cents in case you want to try it out.

Thanks to Steven S for emailing me the link!

  1. Nice pics. I like the eagle tattoo. The comments are interesting, as well.

    The rest of the photos sets at the Denver Post’s photo blog are very good as well, definitely worth checking out, pretty much on par with The Big Picture.
