I love my iPhone's camera. Don't get me wrong, my grown-up camera is lovely too, but my iPhone comes everywhere with me. It lets me play around with images instantly and be creative. I like to think of it as my instant camera; there's always a new app, there's always a new effect to try. I often find myself telling strangers in the park or parents in the playground about whichever new camera app I have just discovered and I can always show them instantly. I had always meant to try one of these trick shots with a print. When I realised I could use my iPhone itself as the polaroid image, I was off! (For those of you who are interested I added a light leak in iDarkroom and then processed it in Lo-Mob for the polaroid effect).
Alphabet Soup Studio's picture made me smile. Even though she hadn't been able to get into the fair because it was closed, she had still managed to have fun with her iPhone.
Do you sometimes wish your real camera had features like HDR? Or rendered pictures like a polaroid? With added light leak effects? Do you feel guilty about using your iPhone instead of your proper camera?
