Yes yes I am still alive
Ive been getting a handful of concerned emails, asking why there havent been any posts this last week. The beautiful thing about BIG goals, is the BIG obstacles that come with. Well… those pesky obstacles are beginning to arrive, like unwanted guests around the holidays, starting with the back end of the site going down preventing me from posting our awesome articles and pics. Luckily wordpress got everything handled just in time for all the submissions for this months Photo Project to come in, so we will have the gallery and extra writeups up within the week!!
If youve been following along you probably know that I have been doing all of my recent shooting on my iPhone, as Im in the midst of upgrading to a new DSLR (Hopefully it will be in at somepoint this week!!). Typically when shooting with the iPhone, I treat it as a regular camera and, 9 times out of 10, I will import my images into Lightroom to process as a part of my regular workflow. Well this time, an unusual situation called for some unusual creativity!
I wanted to do all editing for these on my phone itself, which on most occasions I avoid going for the overly processed, grungy, texture filled photos that is so synonymous with all the photo apps that are saturating the phonetography market these days. However, like Joe McNally says “I never do anything 100% of the time”, or in this case never not do anything. I had overlooked the possibilities of making some sincerely unique and abstract images with the tools I have at hand with the iPhone.
So I now bring you a small compilation of some of the unique, and abstract in some cases, images from my recent iphone editing sessions. All editing was done in my all time fav iPhone photog app Snapseed with a few of the images taken through a instagram filter as the final step.
