What I appreciate about mobile photography is the immediate access to preserving moments of our lives.
Such spontaneity was not always available. With a broken DSLR and no desire to go back to film, I value being able to use my phone camera with the same intent I’d have with it’s counterparts.
No doubt I need to be more proactive in printing my favorites.
I sure hope at least the first two featured here are being printed. (Such spot on compositions.)
The simple beach ball so representative of summer, invites a sense of carefree ease.
A feel good shot that makes you forget the burden of unceasing heat.
My daughter, playing with a beach ball in the lake. Shot with iPhone 7plus, edited with Hipstamatic.
I used Photoshop Fix to remove unwanted object, and Snapseed for the texture of the water to match the sky.
A rare sunny afternoon, I was waiting for the ferry to take me back to Oban. This charming seaside town on the Isle of Mull made it hard to leave.
1) I used the standard camera program + slightly edited the contrast, shadows and saturation in Adobe Lightroom Mobile CC
2) The story of the photo is simple: First I saw this young man with flowers at the crossroads, he was all in white: white shorts, white shoes, white shirt . He certainly was in a hurry, because he ran across the road to red color. Later, I saw him sitting in such position, as if he didn’t have a head. Perhaps he was in a hurry to meet his friend/girlfriend, but he or she was late?
App I used is Hipstamatic 350 with Stavros lens, Robusta film and Apollo flash. This combination brought out the colors especially the red checked plastic tablecloth and red-striped paper straws. It’s always fun to play with Hipstamatic it’s a surprise for me everytime!
Background story: I am a member of my neighborhood book club that meets once a month and last month the host brought wine and different flavored lemonade served in cups decorated with sliced citrus fruits and colorful paper straws which livened up the conversation!
app used: lightroom app.
