Comparison Portraits

The discussions that ensue during the 4 hour introductory photography courses are always varied and stimulating. After showing two images recently taken on my environmental portraiture courses where an image taken on my iPhone was as good as an image taken on my Nikon D700, it was asked if the same would be the case if taken in the studio without flashes?? Well here are the images, the lighter background image is taken on my iPhone, the darker background image was taken on my Canon compact,

and the B/W image was taken on our studio Canon 5D…Its a safe bet I won’t be using the iPhone or compact on customers in the studio in the future.
