It seems like every day we’re reminded about the power we hold in the palm of our hands -- in this case, it’s the iPhone, which has made the leap from being the favorite of fashion photographers to snapping the cover art for singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata’s latest album.
Mashable is reporting that singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata shunned her DSLR camera when it came time to shoot the cover for her new album “Chesapeake.” Instead, she whipped out her iPhone and opened the popular Camera+ app -- a few snaps later, and the sultry-voiced artist is ready to debut her work on October 11 when it ships from label Frankenfish Records.
Yamagata, whose last studio album was released in 2008, didn’t even enlist a pro photographer for the job -- instead, she turned to drummer Victor Indrizzo, who took most of the shots featured in the album’s artwork.
“A lot of the best spontaneous moments of making music happen when no outsiders are around and this includes photographers,” Yamagata revealed to Mashable. “It’s been pretty standard in my experience to keep the studio a sacred space of sorts, and it’s surprising how even the best intended energy of someone new can throw off the vibe of the session. That said, it was a perfect thing to be able to capture these moments in photographs on our own.”
On the subject of her trusty iPhone and the Camera+ app, Yamagata has nothing but praise: “The picture quality is so good and the app so effective, that the moment was allowed to shine and not be lost.”
Aspiring Yamagatas can also get a deal on Camera+, which is on sale for a limited time at the bargain price of only 99 cents. The 18.8MB app is available on the App Store, compatible with all iOS devices running iOS 3.1 or later.
