So July is here (already) and I feel like summer is just starting to gear up! Our vacation isn’t until August and I finished my first photography “project” a couple of months ago (more about that in a moment) and I have been feeling a bit uninspired. Then, I was asked to join this lovely and talented group of ladies to post in a 10 on 10 blog circle, and I am so excited to share my first post. I don’t get around to blogging much so this gives me a great excuse!
I mentioned that I finished my first photography “project” a couple of months ago. It was a 365 (like so many photographers do) BUT I was compelled to only shoot with my iPhone. I wanted to be able to shoot images I was proud of even if I didn’t have any of my big fancy cameras with me. Sure, I’d used a point and shoot in the past (but ever since I got my iPhone it never came with me). It’s convenient, it’s always with me…and I can edit and share on the go. Perfect for a working mom who rarely gets to sit in front of the computer to upload and edit! I had thought about doing a 365 (with my big camera) in January 2013, but I felt overwhelmed and I knew that I would give up. When I committed to my phone, I knew I could do it (and did!) Sure, some of my favorite shots I wish I’d used one of my SLR’s do get a “better quality” image, but I learned to work with it and you know what? My little iPhone still surprises me to this day of what “it can do ;)”
So, since I never blogged about my infatuation with iPhoneography (I really need to blog more!) I figured instead of one story of 10 images, I would share with you 10 moments from June captured (and edited) with my iPhone. When you are finished here, check out what Genevieve of G Erwin Photography has been up to!
Hope you weren’t counting…I shared 11 images instead of 10 😉 I really do shoot too much with my phone…I am not going to tell you how many images there were to sort through!
I also love when photographers share their tools! If you are interested, all of my images were made with an iPhone 5 and edited with VSCOcam (I pretty much use this app ALL the time for editing) with a tiny bit of Snapseed and PicTapGo! I am trying to get better at shooting macro images and love my Olloclip too. Now give your big camera a break and go capture some memories on your phone!
