In a post on Medium, Pete Souza shared that throughout the year he took a handful of images around The White House with his iPhone as opposed to his DSLR. Over the course of the year, he shared a plethora of images on his Instagram account, but never disclosed which were taken with a DSLR and which were taken with his iPhone. Now, Souza has said that any images shared in the square format were taken with an iPhone.
Scrolling through Souza’s Instagram you can see that there isn’t a huge discrepancy in quality between any of his images, again showing how truly great the iPhone camera has gotten over the past two years.
My approach to my Instagram feed continues to be all square photos are taken with an iPhone, and full-frame horizontals and verticals are taken with a DSLR (usually a Canon 5DMark3, but I’ve also posted some from Sony, Nikon and Leica cameras).
Souza has shared many of his iPhone-taken White House images in his Medium post and we’ve uploaded some below, as well. Souza also shared some images that he processed with the popular Hipstamatic iOS app.
