I’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).
The 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.
