Tumblr of the Week: Also Shot on iPhone 6

It's the week of Monday, April 6th, 2015 and the Tumblr of the Week is Also Shot on iPhone 6 -- A Tumblr blog that parodies Apple's billboard advertisements recently seen across a few major U.S. cities.

If you live somewhere like San Francisco or Chicago, you may have noticed a few large, striking photos of gorgeous mountain tops and fields of flowers plastered across city billboards, captioned with "Shot on iPhone 6." In other words, Apple is pretty darn proud of the camera on its latest iPhone model and is obviously pushing the message that it stacks up well to any professional camera.

But the folks who run the Also Shot on iPhone 6 blog think it's a bit ridiculous. After all, who uses their iPhone to take photos that look like they're from National Geographic? iPhone users take selfies, and photos of their food, and photos of the pets.

The Tumblr blog puts a much more realistic (and hilarious) spin on how iPhone users use their cameras. You can read more about what the blog moderators had to say in this interview with Refinery29

The blog only has six photos and hasn't been updated since March 25th, so who knows whether more posts will be added in the future. You can go ahead and follow it at AlsoShotOniPhone6.Tumblr.com.
