Street Photography using the iphone

Hi all, took a trip to London again yesterday for some street photography using just my iphone4 and iphone5. Had mixed results! I started off at the Barbican Centre on the overhead walkway and managed to get some atmospheric images using the hipstamatic app with the Lowy lens/Blackeys supergrain combo. I handheld all the shots and because it was quite dark there under cover some of the shots had blurring! I need to either rest the phone on a wall or other solid structure or make a conscious effort to keep my hands steady!! Anyway here are some of the better shots firstly from the barbican centre..

The first image is an overview of the Barbican centre, taken from one of the walkways. The second image is of one of the stairways leading down to a restaurant/leisure area.

These two images were taken on the walkways where it was quite dark. The day being overcast didn’t help either!

Two more “grab” shots from the walkways themselves.

From the Barbican I took a leisurely walk to Brick lane via Leadenhall and Aldgate. Stopped off at old Spitalfields market before heading home..

Two images from Brick Lane..

Finally the Underground back home. All these were Taken on the iphone which I would not have attempted 18 months ago, and although I had some blurring issues and exposure problems these can be overcome and with patience and practice the images will get better ( at least the quality, if not the content!!). So  take the plunge go somewhere with just your smartphone and see what can be achieved! thanks for reading and as usual please comment..Bye

Brighton Visit

IMG_4224 Another shot of the west pier in Brighton. Added the Moon in lenslight, and darkened in Mextures for a Dusk effect. Processed in Snapseed and distressed FX as well. Brighton’s a great place for photographers lots of hidden alleys and old worldy buildings. There’s new and old, pristine and worn and lots of graffiti!! Here’s a couple of Hopstamatic shots of the town…….

IMG_4182 IMG_4178 The first is an area known as the Lanes, lots of old shops down narrow alleys.. The second is a shot of the Royal Pavilion an  extravagant pleasure palace.Built for the Prince Regent, later King George IV, in stages between 1787 and 1823. There’s also a great museum there and pleasant gardens. 

IMG_4257 This is a shot of some disused lock ups/ beach huts! not quite sure which. Taken with Bracket mode for a dark and light exposure then combined using PRO hdr and processed using Filterstorm, Distressed FX, Mextures and Snapseed for a grungy overall effect. Will definitely be returning there soon if only to get some shots of the Victorian train station…

Train Journey

Carriage tiphone4 015 iphone4 051 iphone4 055

Went up to Central London a few days ago and managed to get some shots on the train using my iphone and the hipstamatic app. Love this combo as you can get some great candid shots. Love the Lo-Fi images, I know “everybodies” doing it, but it does remind me of the old Eastern European film cameras of my youth with the wonderful light leaks and weird effects, besides i’m getting a bit bored with carting my Nikon and lenses with me and getting hostile vibes all the time.
