Well its official! Ive sold the Canon Rebel and will be upgrading to a new body in a week or so. Until then I have my trusty Canon AE-1 and iPhone 4s to keep me company while out on my photographic adventures. Which needless to say is still enough to create some great pics.
If you follow Nick Exposed on Instagram (@NickExposed) you probably seen a sneak peek image that I put up from todays shooting. One thing I love about the iphone is its ability to capture some rather usable bracketed exposures to put together for HDR either in phone or in Photomatix on the computer as in this case. I use an app called “Bracket Mode” which does an excellent job at capturing the scene as over exposed as the iphone will allow, and under exposed in the same manner. Even without the regular exposure the results are quite pleasing. A few tweeks in photoshop and lightroom and you start to forget that this was captured on a camera phone (a badass camera phone… well phone in general.. at that)
Ive mentioned it in the past, but I think its so funny that as photogs we so often feel that we need the best of the best cameras to make great pictures. Now i wouldnt go shooting a wedding with my iphone… however it would be funny to see the look on the clients face… well besides the part where the bride turns to bridezilla lol. But the iphone or any other current camera phone is still capable of capturing some pretty stunning pictures.
Its going to be fun and interesting over the next week and a half as I work these two cameras and try to make due without my beloved dslr.
