I'm being a little lazy this month. I just got back from a 10 day vacation/family reunion and I'm worn out (in a good way). I haven't shot a selfie with my "real" camera so I am sharing some of my iphoneography. I have never done that here. It's probably long overdue actually. I HEART my iphone and Instagram (come find me @summer_murdock). I want to be one of those people who carries their DSLR around with them 24/7 but I'm not. I have four kids and my reality is I can barely get everyone out of the car and across the parking lot without an injury or someone getting lost. If I threw my "nice" camera into the mix it would sure to be lost, broken, or spilled on in no time! So I use my iphone when inspiration hits me. I love the challenge of creating interesting images with such a simple piece of equipment. It makes me focus on what is really important in photography and that is light and composition. It has actually really helped me to grow and improve as a photographer. I have to say that it's kind of fun to hush all those people who have ever said "If I had a camera like that, I'd be able to take amazing pictures too". To me my iphoneography proves it's not all about the camera (although a nice one sure helps), it's about the photographer. Period....and I kinda love that. Plus, it instantly satifies my creative impulses. If I feel inspired by something, my phone is always close by. Oh and yesterday I was honored to have my iphoneography featured over at Pictapgo (my fav iphone editing camera app made by the people who make Totally Rad Actions) If you want to see that interview go here! I'm still pinching myself over it!
SO I give you my "11 on 11" get in the frame iphone style this month...all images shot and edited with my iphone from my recent vacation.
And when you are on a road trip and you stop to walk across a bridge to see the AMAZING Colorado River and a passerby asks you if you want a family shot, you accept. Photo credit...some nice man in Arizona!
Wait was that more than 11 pictures? Oh well...who is counting?
Now you have to go visit Christie Hobson who is an amazing photographer (really she is) and in her spare time a comedian. Yup! Well not officially but she is pretty dang funny in my very expert opinion!
In case you have never visited my blog before and wonder if I know how to use my "real" camera you can visit last month's "11 on 11" circle where I demonstrate that I can shoot with something other than an iphone here! HA
