iPhoneography

While on the subject of iPhoneography, here's a trio of other images from my crappy iPhone 3GS. I'd like to get the iPhone 5 just for the 8 megapixel camera (the 3GS is a three MP jobber), but the motherf#%@ers at Apple want to charge me $400 because my contract isn't up.

Two words for Apple: suck it!

That said, iPhones are great because they're basically better than most point-n-shoot cameras on the market due to all the different apps available for taking photos and processing them. I tell people all the time to get an iPhone as their everyday walking around camera and then invest in a DSLR for more serious stuff or when you want a really nice image.

The iphoneography blog has great tips on apps, processing and iPhone photography in general. As for apps, I mostly use Snapseed, Hipstamatic, Camera Awesome and Instagram these days. The great thing about the iPhoneography is that there are no rules -- you can play it straight and try to capture a traditional photo or you can be playful and artful and shoot for the stars. 

A quartet of photos I've captured with my phone that I like are below (click to see larger) and here's a link to more of my iphoneography on my SmugMug site

The Venice canals in Los Angeles, taken on an August evening in 2011. I believe I processed this one with Camera+.

An old church in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I believe I processed this one with the PicFx app.
