You may wonder, “why would anyone take pictures with their iPhone when they have a better camera?”
Well, there are a number of reasons.
- First of all, my iPhone is usually with me. Convenience is definitely a part of it. I love how light and handy it is!
- I really enjoy playing with the images on it. Yes, they are different from those taken with a camera but I like the look and the possibilities are endless.
- You can edit photos at any time; while waiting at the doctor’s office or if you’re tired and want to just to relax for a while.
- The apps are amazing! There is so much you can do with the images that you take. It’s not the same as Photoshop but you really can do most things that you do with Photoshop on your iPhone and it’s so much easier than the work flow using a digital SLR.
Don’t get me wrong. My iPhone will never replace my SLR, but iPhoneography is rewarding and a lot of fun!
Here are some of my recent iPhone images:
I think your reasons for why iPhoneography is fun are dead on. What are your favorite editing apps?
Thank you. My favorite apps are: PhotoForge2, Dynamic Light, Snapseed and I like Paintersque and Blender when used together. I find Painteresque is too extreme a look and like to bring it down a bit with Blender.
I am a huge Snapseed fan myself. Thanks for sharing.
