Are you kidding Todd? Are you really writing a blog post about taking photos on your iPhone. You are suppose to to be “professional”
Well, professional photographer or not, thats for you to decide. But I tell everyone I meet that says “your camera is so much better than mine”. It does not matter what camera your have, THE BEST CAMERA IS THE ONE YOU HAVE WITH YOU!
This is why the camera phone is everywhere. Add in lots of social media and Phone Photography has taken over. Phones are so common in normal life, that it allows people to be themselves, while you are snapping away. And you always have it with you, which means you are always ready to take a great photo.
So I thought I would share with you my spring break photos from my phone.
I have an iPhone 4. Everytime Apple releases a new iPhone the camera keeps getting better. And there are thousands of apps for photography.
Like any Camera, take your time. Think about what you are shooting. Should I squat down to make a better angle? Do I want the image to have symmetry? Where should I tap to to get good focus and exposure?
The main two apps I use are Instagram, and Camera +
Instagram, has a great community built into their app. So just one more way to connect creatively with others all around the world. The app is easy and fast to use.
I generally take my photos in the regular iPhone photo app, then import it into another app to post process.
My favorite post processing app is Camera +. I like how I can really tweak the exposure, and control each effect separately. Plus, I shoot a lot of wide feeling images, and Instagram works in square format only.
So here are some images from my Colorado trip with the family.
Please share or comment your camera phone experiences. And ask all the questions you like.
After my family trip, I had to head out on a band trip to Duluth, Minnesota. These trip are filled with great people, but very little room for extra gear. The iPhone becomes very handy in creating fun photos while traveling.
