David Hume Kennerly: On the iPhone is Pulitzer prize-winning photographer David Hume Kennerly's philosophical journey through his photographic career, combining lessons he has learned along the way with suggestions that will help everyone make better pictures. Kennerly's journey is seen through the lens of his second picture-a-day-for-a-year project, this time using only the camera built into his mobile phone. David Hume Kennerly: On the iPhone proves that memorable photographs are created less by the equipment than the eye behind the lens.

This book uses examples from his 2013 picture-a-day journey along with anecdotes and tips from the past that explore his own joy, passion and approach to shooting, while helping others to improve their pictures.
