iPhonography On The Cover Of The New York Times

Around this time last year, photographer Nick Laham made lemonade out of lemons. He was, through a wide array of circumstances beyond his control, forced to try to make portraits of Yankees players at Spring Training in a men's restroom. And he did it with an iPhone. And just last week one of his portraits made the cover of the New York Times. Now that is what I call a photographic triumph. You can read the story of the original photo shoot at Nick's own blog, and then follow up with The Online Photographer's mention of the Times cover photo. My favorite part is the way TOP's Mike Johnston also turns proverbial lemons into lemonade, noting that many photographers lament that clients no longer care about top notch quality, and choosing to see that as freeing for photographers to no longer have to continually invest in the newest, most expensive professional gear. If you can shoot a Times cover photo in the toilet with a phone, it seems to me that anything is possible.
