I think there are some awesome things that can be done with light trails, whether from cars in traffic, steel wool spinning, or just plain-old fire twirlers. But I had no idea whether it would work with an iPhone, and I hadn’t seen any information about it (or hadn’t looked, either one). So when I […]
The weather today was beautiful, and it may very well have (finally) been the first day post-winter! For most of the day, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and it was warm enough to ride my bike without a jacket of any kind. As late afternoon came along, a few white clouds appeared here and […]
I love to get one good snow each winter. It keeps things interesting (especially if it’s going to be cold anyway), and a city under snow is just different. This year, we had snow on three separate occasions, which was a little more than I’d like. But, it did allow me to capture some photos that […]
Well guys, I didn’t win. But it sure was uplifting to know that I was named one of just five finalists for this photo contest.
I’m not one to get up early if I don’t have to. That’s not to say I will lay in bed all day, but rare is the day when I’m up in time to see the sunrise. It’s hard to find the motivation to get out for something so early, when there’ll be another one […]

When I first started taking photos with my phone, I often held the phone upright, in portrait orientation, without giving it a second thought.
With a new year come new goals! I have a few (admittedly basic) goals as I really start getting more serious about iPhone photography. So, no further introduction is needed, I think. Here they are! 1. Improve my long-exposure abilities. Some of the photographs I admire the most are long exposures. With long-exposure, you can […]
Sometimes you have to create the scene that you want, and that was the case with this photo. I really wanted a silhouetted subject to contrast with the bright colors of the ocean, but I didn’t have enough time to wait for someone to walk by on their own. So, I got some help. First, […]
When I began to get serious about taking good pictures with my phone, I realized the days of simply opening up the camera app, clicking away, and posting whatever picture resulted were behind me. Over the past 6-8 months, I’ve tried a wide variety of photo taking, photo editing, and photo modifying apps for iPhone. […]
