There are three facts about smartphones and taking pictures.
1. Most of the time I am not sure what I take pictures of. I use Hipstamatic and its viewfinder is set to small on my phone. Why? I don’t know why. I simply have faith that my subject is still there when I am pressing the shutter.
2. I have a problem with holding my tiny phone steady therefore my pictures are often more blurry than not. Oh well. I wouldn’t do well in American western. (Did anybody see True Grit by Coen brothers?)
3. Most of my work is done by apps.
Now what I want is DSLR loaded with apps and access to Internet. Maybe five more years but the technology is coming…as always…
I use Hipstamatic almost exclusively, then Snapseed… sometimes I run pics through PhotoToaster and Grunger.
This set was run through ScratchCam and Blender. I often end up fine tuning in Photoshop.
PS I am blogging this post from smartphone …. I am in the middle of nowhere in Ca with no fast connection to the net. I have trouble to follow my fellow bloggers’ posts…a difficult task to navigate in Safari WordPress world.
