Back in April I got the new iPhone 7 Plus….and it changed my photography in so many ways. For one thing, now when I travel, it isn’t necessary to pack, lenses, filters, batteries, tripods, etc. Just my phone! For another thing, the camera on this iPhone 7 Plus is amazing! There are a number of good photo editing apps that save time when doing the post-processing of the photos. The photo below was taken with this phone and 2 post-processing filters were used to slightly enhance the lighting (brighter) and I straightened out the horizon, both of which were done in under 1 minute!
This got me to thinking about a project I was involved with a few years ago that was a photo a day project and each day I would get an email with a theme. It could be to photograph something priamrily red, or an abstract, a city scene, texture, macro, portrait, bridges, etc. It was fun at first but then it became a bit of a chore on busy days. I kept up with it for 218 days, when all of a sudden the emails stopped coming…..the sponsor called it quits! 🙁
I began to chronicle my own images with this iPhone and am really enjoying it! So this weekends special them is the first set of photos from the beginning! It really made me “see” more and keeps me from getting in a photography rut. As you will see there is a variety of genres, too. Keep in mind that each of these was taken with my iPhone 7 Plus and some have been slightly enhanced with filters.
