Iphoneography

These are some shots taken with the new iPhone 4s, including, might I add, the flowers my super-husband sent me today!
I'm usually not the type to splurge on electronics, but I've been due for a phone upgrade for a long time, and I couldn't resist the camera in this baby. I took these with the app "camera+".

Sometimes when I get in a funk I like to go for walks around our house to clear my head, and I always take my phone in case I see something picture-worthy. I always do.

While using the iPhone to take pictures, I've unexpectedly learned something- how to really look at light. You would think that I should have learned that a long time ago, being a photographer and all, but for so long, I've relied more on my off-camera flashes than on available light.

With my old 3Gs iPhone, there was no flash, so I really had to look carefully at the light source before taking a picture of the yellow mushroom, or the red leaves, or the interesting grey mold pattern on a tree that I would encounter on my walks. And surprisingly, it has translated into my overall approach to photo shoots and made me a better photographer. I wish I could say the same for the iPhone's auto-spell-corrector tool....
