Last week, I took some time to attend the CreativeLIVE two-day seminar on iPhoneography with Jack Hollingsworth. Wow, what a great workshop! I was totally blown away by all the fantastic ways you can take and edit photographs with the iPhone. I’ve played with Camera+ and Instagram for the past six months or so, but I really hadn’t taken the time to scratch the surface of these amazing apps.
I love my iPhone camera and have really focused on using it in the past few months to supplement my daily blog photos. Sometimes it’s just not convenient or feasible to carry around my Nikon D3S, so I’ve always tried to bring along either my Panasonic point-and-shoot or my iPhone for when I happen upon a great photo-op. Well, I have to admit my Panasonic has collected dust lately and will likely become even more neglected now that I’ve seen how much more can be accomplished with the iPhone.
Today’s photo was taken with the iPhone and the Camera+ app, employing the Clarity Filter for a little more punch. When my current deadlines are concluded I plan to spend some more time studying the CreativeLIVE workshop course to further improve my editing skills. I would never have imagined 10 years ago that my mobile phone could also become such an integral part of my photo equipment—but I’m certainly glad it has.
Oh so very gorgeous!!! WOW!
Thank you, Cee! I appreciate your many visits and likes!
So simple and elegant. Great Shot. Glad you liked the Pileated Woodpecker in my blog. The scene was much better than the photo. It had some blur shooting through glass. Love your photographs.
Thank you, William, for the kind words! We have Pileateds here, too, but I’ve never been fortunate enough to get close enough for any photos even through glass. Maybe someday!
This is beautiful and it is amazing what can be done with an iPhone. I think there are several thousand apps to choose from to really play with the photos!!!
I’ve only scratched the surface on the apps so far. But it’s been fun to experiment! I do think that for daily blog posts the iPhone is going to become a very useful tool.
That is a crisp and lovely winter shot. You positioned the sun well, hiding it enough behind tree to avoid flares and still making it an point of interest. The colours really exaggerate the coldness of the landscape. I am impressed by what you got out of your iPhone.
Thank you, Otto, for your detailed comments! It’s so wonderful to have your feedback. I so admire your work and you’re an inspiration for me to keep improving!
Beautiful and amazing that you captured this scene with your iPhone!
Thanks Karen! It won’t replace my DSLR or capture birds, but it’s fun for subjects that don’t move!
What an interesting shot. I tried liking it but it wouldn’t take. So, consider yourself Liked!
