Living in Las Vegas, Nevada, there are a ton of daily photographic opportunities down on The Strip and throughout the valley. Being able to have a powerful camera with you at all times is pretty handy!
It still blows me away, the powerful cameras and video recorders that we are all walking around with in our pockets these days. I titled this post, iPhonography, but I’m really just referring to the rapidly growing category of photography that comes from our smart phones and other mobile devices.
A year or so ago, the iPhone was the number one camera being used to generate photos hosted on Flickr. That was a year ago and these camera’s just keep getting better. I was even watching a video by pro photographer, Jack Hollingsworth who’s been doing amazing work with an iPhone and moving away from DSLRs, focusing on the iPhone as his main camera of choice.
Keep It Simple…
To me there is something romantic about minimalism. This new genre of photography completely embraces that. You can take a high quality shot, process it, then even share it online; all from a device that fits into your pocket.
A couple iPhone Shots
There are a couple shots I took with my iPhone 4s when visiting with my client, Dan Tinker, owner of Devious Designs, Las Vegas – a custom paint and body work shop. This is a bike that his team had worked on.
This first shot was processed on the phone, sitting in a Wells Fargo parking lot, using NIK’s Snapseed iPhone app. (my favorite on-phone photo processing app)
Processed on Mac
These two shots were processed using Apple’s Aperture when I got home later that night.
Note: the shot of the iPhone at the top of the post was taken with my Fujifilm X100; another awesome camera with a very minimal approach to this artform.
