Iphoneography is a unique art of creating beautiful images of day-to-day life and events. Once you start clicking to capture your first pictures, there is no turning back. Forward we go to an amazing world of adventure and discovery. A world we often missed but now face with burning passion. We no longer wait for things to happen. We make things happen.
This week’s photo challenge is about being Lost in the details which pretty much what happens when we are totally into capturing those picture perfect images.
We don’t need complicated skills nor tons of reading materials to make a great picture. All we need are three basic things.
1. First, we need an iPhone or any smart phone with an outstanding camera features. It’s all about getting the best resolution that will create clear and crisp pictures. Convenience, features and cost counts as well.
2. Invest on a camera App that enhance even the worst of images. There are lots of them out there. So far, I only tried Camera +. It works for me and has not given me reasons to try others. Perhaps in the future I will try others for comparison sake.
3. We need to bring our camera phone with us wherever we go. Every minute is an opportunity to capture the day’s exciting events. The key to perfection is constant practice. Lots of practice. Every place we go and every person we meet becomes an instant source of inspiration.
These pictures were taken at a park in Sugarland Texas. Looks like any other park but with the right effects it can be transformed into something surreal.
I often use the rapid burst mode of my camera App to capture moving subjects. It’s great in capturing my son when he is at play and running all over the place. It not only saves me time but it assures me that no moments are missed. I then select an effect that will enhance the picture’s clarity and color. My rule is “just click, click, click and later delete” the ones that I don’t like. Works so far.
There are limits to what an iPhone camera can do. First, its zooming feature is poor and captures blurry images. Second, its flash feature at night creates bad-looking pictures. So bad I stop using it long time ago. This is where those DSLR cameras comes in. Third, it’s not water proof and unless we invest on a costly waterproof casing, it’s never a good idea to use it on any body of water. I almost dropped mine at a pier which taught me a huge lesson.
Whatever motivates us to use our camera phones what matters is that we have fun doing it. Personally, I think it’s one of the best inventions there is and I don’t mind being lost in its details again and again.
Thanks for sharing your day with me. I hope you and your smart phone will have many exciting adventures ahead.
