Garden Photography Rabbit Hole with an iPhone
But oh, what a fun rabbit hole this is.
I lost my footing and starting to slide down this little rabbit hole when I found David Perry's new blog, A Photographer's Garden Blog.
His most current post is about using your iPhone and the Camera+ app to create some interesting pictures. He made it look easy, fun actually, with no fancy talk of apertures, f-stops and multiple lenses.
Just an iPhone and an app and a few minutes...
What fun this will be.
This watering can hook picture is my second picture with Camera+, which I spent all of five minutes taking and editing.
I took the picture, cropped it into a square, applied the Nostalgia effect, added the Old Timer's border and a caption, then applied the Shade scene.
It's not going to win any photography contests, not by a long row of peas in the garden, but it was fun to do.
My first shot was taken last night.
I applied so many changes to it that I couldn't even begin to find my way back to where it started. Well, it actually started when I went to the Indy Winter Farmers Market and saw two rosemary plants side by side at one of the booths there, but that's a whole different rabbit hole to write about some other day.
If you have an iPhone or an iPad, go get Camera+ for 99 cents and give it a try. Then keep checking David Perry's new blog because I'm sure he has many more photography tricks he's going to be sharing in the months ahead.
