Jan 132013

After hitting two large buckets at the golf range for the second consecutive day I thought I would give my rubber arms a break by shooting some creatives at Edwards Gardens. On this particular January day, a balmy 14 degree celsius made this choice very easy. I used mainly my macro lens but also captured a few images with my iPhone. The middle image was taken with an iPhone and edited with the Snapseed app.

The camera on the iPhone 5 is pretty amazing. Yes it has its limitations but as an extra photographic tool that I have with me almost all of the time, I really should be using it more. The convenience and ease of apps that provide instant gratification have an appeal to them as well. Thanks to Colette for some inspiration of late, I have started a gallery in my extended portfolio page titled iPhoneography and all of the images in this gallery were and will be shot and edited with my iPhone only. This gallery is mainly for experimenting and creating some fun art. As you can see from my regular portfolio I am a purist in the sense that I do not like using filters, effects, etc. with my images in Photoshop or Lightroom. In fact I even hate to crop. But with an iPhone, I feel that anything goes as long as it still contains the aspects of a good image (composition, lighting, subject, mood, emotion etc). Anyway enough babble. Check out the gallery here and I will have more images to come.

Soundtrack for this balmy day was Rosebuds’ fantastic album Loud Planes Fly Low.
