A completely new breed of camera.To capture all the gorgeous decoration and overwhelming excitement, Sephi used an iPhone 6s, along with a hand-held LED light to get proper exposure for night shots (the ISO limit wasn't letting him shoot without motion blur). He composed the scenes not in a documental fashion, but in one that would translate to his artistic vision for post-processing (which has played a very significant part, as you will see in the photos). He used a "very simple workflow" for post-processing, all happening right on the smartphone. He started with Snapseed to correct the contrast, color, and highlights, in addition to adding a vintage filter to some photos. He then moved to Mextures to add "scratches and grit" for a more dramatic look, and finished with face retouching in Facetune. The result gets exported to Instagram, whose filters also end up getting some use.
Although Sephi notes that smartphones won't replace "regular" cameras for the time being, despite their advantages, he considers them "a completely new breed of camera" – one that lets photographers "shoot and process images in the field, free from the burden of running home to our computers". It also lets one instantly try out ideas, see what works and doesn't, and share them on the spot.
