This topsy-turvy iPhone photography 'hack' is just being discovered

Camera phones like the iPhone have been improving their sensors and lenses year after year, but sometimes it's a simple camera tip that can do more for getting better images that blow people's minds. And here's an example that even Apple is talking about as if it's a new feature on its phones. 

Photographs can make a subject look taller, and often more dramatic, when taken from a low angle. How do you do that with your phone? Just turn it upside down. The neat thing is that many phones will automatically turn the image the right way up after it's captured so you don't even have to go to the trouble of flipping the photo (see our pick of the best camera phones if you need to upgrade).
