Clawing The iPhone Pt. I

Jorge Quinteros:

This is how I clench the iPhone in my hands when photographing on the streets. Despite a friend’s remark, I don’t think it’s unusual. I refer to it now as “clawing the iPhone” because that’s how my friend Victor described it when he pointed out the odd similarity to a bird gripping on to a twig or something. I use my thumb to press on the shutter button and it’s as easy as that.

I often hold my iPhone the same way when photographing in landscape mode. As Jorge I am sometimes scared to drop the phone, too.
But most of my photos I take with Instagram in portrait mode anyway.
