textures to go


I came to camera phone photography reluctantly. I am currently deep into a love affair with my DSLR and my 50mm lens with some textures thrown in to keep things fresh. I saw no need to complicate that relationship. However, with a camera phone post looming in my future, I went to the Mortal Muse Flickr pool for some inspiration. Once I saw JoGo's photo I had an epiphany. Textures? You can do textures on an iphone? I did a bit of research on apps, down loaded three - 100 Cameras, Iris and Bad-Camera - and proceeded to use up half a day of my spring break playing with photos and apps (and had to charge my phone twice). Well this just rocks my world, I can take textures mobile! Shhhhh, don't tell my big-girl camera, but I have a new boyfriend.

Thanks JoGo and thanks to all of you who have contributed your camera phone photos to the Flickr group. I have been inspired to travel light and sneak out with my new love more often.

Mo, that image is so YOU. It doesn't matter the camera or app, it's the same photographer behind the viewfinder. Or screen. Or whatever. And I LOVE jogo's photo - that is just gorgeous!

Hey there, I have to confess that I'm not there yet with the phone but wanted to say how much I love these images! Thanks for all the sharing that goes on here.

Oh trust me, I know all about Mr. 50mm. He too is my all time fave! I recently bought a macro lens that I’m smitten with right now but I still have my 50mm very close by!

I have yet to dive into the world of phone photography. I snap away with my camera phone but never expect much. I need to look into some apps that will help my camera phone shots gussie up a bit!
