Working again to cast iPhones as a tool for serious photographers, Apple on Monday released its latest "Shot on iPhone" promo, featuring portrait specialist Christopher Anderson.
Running over 3 minutes, the promo concentrates on Anderson's working philosophy. He also extols the virtues of playing around with in-camera controls, which in the video includes the iOS 12 Camera app's filter and editing tools.
Simultaneously however he argues in favor of simplification and observation, rather than getting "bogged down" in "all the tools that may be available."
An unusual aspect of the video is that it's shot in a vertical format, normally heresy among videographers. That may suggest that Apple intends it to be viewed on phones first and foremost.
Apple's core ad partner, TBWAMedia Arts Lab, recently assigned new creative directors to iPhone and Services projects. It's not yet clear if the new iPhone director, Chuck Monn, was responsible for the Anderson promo.
