Default When all you had was your mobile...

Iíve got a DSLR in a camera bag in the closet and a non-DSLR superzoom camera in my work bag which would also have to be dug out, but my iPhone is always nearby at home or on my hip when I go out. So chances are any photo I take on the fly will be with the mobile.

I usually end up shooting sunsets, general scenics, architecture or events. Here are a few examples of my iPhone photos with a bit of post-processing to make them less crappy and more interesting, I thinkÖ Feel free to add yours with a bit of a story behind them.

Mike,

This is a great set and shows that the choice of camera is far less important than most other factors in the hands of a creative photographer.

I also like the sampling of manifestations of faith!

It's the part of the season that gets left behind and covers the strongest and weakest aspects of human character!

Asher

Thanks Asher! I often see people discussing the latest multi-thousand dollar gear and then I see what one can do with a phone... Especially when you add artsy later, it covers up any deficiencies while maintaining the nature of the image. Same is true with our old 1-megapixel photos.

I work in higher ed IT and occasionally see the evangelists on campus. Sometime small-scale student protests too. Reminds me of my photojournalism days ;-)

Mike,

These are nice, but did you notice that there is already this thread by Asher over there?

Best regards,
Michael

Thanks Michael, I didn't, but Asher seems to have forgotten about it so shhhhhh... ;-)

Actually, some nice work over there.

Remember how hard it used to be to shoot and process color-? This is too much fun.
