I saw a post yesterday asking if the old master photographers were here today, do you think they would be taking photos with their iPhone? My bet is yes they would!!
As a creative person, I find the camera on my phone so easy and handy. It’s really always with me, and it makes it way too easy to just photograph any little thing I see. I love the iPhone ad that shows how much taking photos with our phone has changed our lives. Some may be silly or pointless, but some capture just beautiful moments that in a way we can keep forever.
I started taking photos with my phone with my old Android (Evo). Some of my favorite apps were Vignette, Retro Camera and FXCamera. I was very disappointed that they did not make Vignette for iPhone, but I have found plenty of apps to play with. Have I used all these loaded on my phone? Not really. I got carried away, and I am sure there are some of you out there that have more apps than I do! I do find myself using Instagram, Hipstamatic & Vintique the most.
Of course most of these apps have many filters and settings you can choose from. The options seem endless!
I would love to hear what your favorite photo apps are! 🙂
I waited till the last minute to take a photo tonight. Went to an art reception, then out for dinner and drinks, then to help my daughter with some paperwork. I know, not a good enough excuse, but at least I took some photos! Yes, I used my EVO phone camera, but they did come out cool. I could not make up my mind on which photo to post, so I decided to post all three. They were taken with my different Android Apps for photos. I think my favorite is the Vignette.
I was waiting (forever) to pull out of a parking lot and I had to take this photo. Taken with my Evo, the RetroCamera App. The corner of S, 1st and Barton Springs Rd. seems to be the place for birds! (eek!)
I had a great day wandering around Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake) with my daughter and taking photos. My CF card was full, so I could not use my camera! (I let her borrow my card and have not gotten it back yet), so I used my EVO to take some photos. I downloaded the FX Camera for Android and Retro Camera for Android and I really like some of the photos I came up with! Here’s a few. (Don’t the photos of the abandoned building look like a torture chamber?)
