I decided that the optimal time for taking a photo was while I teetered on a narrow hiking path that linked Vernazza and Monterosso Al Mare, two seaside towns in Italy’s Cinque Terre Region. My phone slipped out of my hands, fell through some thorny brush and plummeted to its death.
Whether I feel embarrassed about admitting it or not, I take pride in my iPhoneography (if that’s even a thing to take pride in). After losing the luxury of automatic square framing, I was forced to readjust, reverting to a DSLR and a rectangular aspect ratio. Waves, caves, rocky outcroppings, mountains and seascapes were not meant for squares.
