Iphone editing apps

IMG_3196 IMG_3213I’ve been messing around with some different apps recently and have enjoyed some of the effects they have produced. Distressed FX and Mextures allow for some great textures and grunge effects, even allowing the placement of some Birds!! The great thing about this is that you can develop an image way beyond it’s humble low megapixel output, even enough for some great print quality. I’m not really interested in the is it proper photography or not debate and will avoid all arguments from either side, all I know is that I like the way my images are turning out and am enjoying the photographic process again after becoming a bit disillusioned with it all from the not too distant past. I have used all different types of cameras from 110 film compacts, polaroids and film SLR’s right through to Digital SLR’s and compact cameras and have printed my own images in the dark room and on computer since the late 1970’s. All I know is that you have to like your images before anyone else will and there is never a right or wrong way, so do what makes you happy and gives you enjoyment. I’m off to Speaker’s corner again Tomorrow, with my iphone and panasonic GF2 and hope to capture some good images..wish me luck :o).

IMG_3201 IMG_3202The first image is of a tree in snow, taken with a DSLR camera and processed on the iphone. The second was taken with the iphone on a Beach near Poole in Dorset UK. It was developed on the iphone using Distressed FX , Mextures and snapseed. The third image was again taken near Poole and the Forth  at Buckinghamshire Golf Club UK. They both had the same iphone post processing carried out on them.

Speaker’s corner and a Sunrise adventure!!

IMG_0178IMG_0218 Saw this character at Speaker’s corner a few weeks ago. He wasn’t part of the usual retinue of speakers but I have seen him there a few times and managed to capture him joining in some of the debates!!

IMG_1904 IMG_2494 IMG_2504  Something quite rare for me, colour and landscape!! I decided for some unknown reason (other than to say I did it :O) to get up at 5am on a Sunday morning and attempt to capture a sunrise. The second and third images are from then and the first was tken a little bit later in the day. I’ve decided to post them because I took them and processed them all on my iphone. I  took multiple shots at different exposures and stitched them all together using an autostitch app. I processed them first using pro HDR and did most of my editing using snapseed. I also played around with some filter apps as well. I quite like the effects and although not the same quality as my DSLR I enjoyed the process more!

Hipstamatic and Oggl!!

oggl iphone 011I have been playing with the new Oggl app from hipstamatic the last few weeks. It’s similar to Instagram but you can use all their cool lens and film combos so it’s great for obtaining loads of different effects when your out and about. The first Three shots on this blog were all taken at a Bus depot while I was waiting around for a Bus.

oggl iphone 010 It’s great for candid’s and those unexpected moments.!! I love the effects gained from Hipstamatic and have recently been re shooting some of my old DSLR shots with the iphone hipsta app and have been very pleased with the results.

The next Two images are portraits. The first was taken with Oggl using the Tinto 1884 lens and D-type plate film combo. The second image was one of my old DSLR portraits re taken with the iphone, I quite like the end result.iphone4 006iphone library etc 037

Finally sold my Nikon recently with some trepidation, but I wasn’t enjoying it as much as I used to so I thought it would serve someone else better. I might eventually go back to grown up cameras again, and I have kept my GF2  even buying a new lens for it, the 45-175mm zoom. All I need now is some extra days to go and enjoy my photography. And some Sunshine :o)
