When Life Gives You Lemons...
When life gives you lemons, turn it into lemonade. That's how the saying goes, anyway, though it's easier said than done. But that's exactly what photographer Rob Hart did after being laid off—along with the entire photo staff of the Chicago Sun-Times. Hart has been documenting life after layoff with his iPhone. He deliberately chose not to use his DSLR because, he says, since he was replaced by a reporter with a phone, he's going to document his new life with the same tool—but with the addition of the professional photojournalist's eye. It ain't about the tool, folks, it's about the photographer. And the Chicago Sun-Times is about to realize that. See more at DPReview and then consider heading over to Hart's blog directly.
