iPhone Photography, A Creative Workout

 

I’ve mentioned before on my Photography Training site that I’m a big fan of shooting images on my iPhone. There was a time when I’d never leave the house without a camera but over the years my style of photography has changed somewhat and most of what I shoot these days is less spontaneous and much more highly planned. Theabove however changed with the iPhone and I found myself shooting more and more freely like I did when I first discovered photography. I believe there are several reasons for my love of shooting on the iPhone and it definitely has nothing to do with the awesome quality or versatility which it lacks in abundance !

For starters it’s a challenge to shoot with as there is no control over aperture,shutter and little exposure or focus control so you are on a level playing ground with everyone else who shoots with it. This basically means you only have your eye to reply on for capturing something visually interesting & creative which is also another challenge in itself as there is no view finder. Secondly the above means you are released from any technical control and free just to enjoy capturing everything and anything without fear that the image is exposed correctly or has camera shake as there is little you can do to adjust it anyway.So in short you give yourself permission to become an amateur again and go wild. None of this means I don’t ever take out any of my more pro level cameras when out and about but for most day to day off the hip shooting the iPhone is always in my pocket.

In short using the iPhone as a camera is just great fun and that after all is what it’s all about and a nice workout for the creative muscles.

Moored For The Night

There is nothing more therapeutic to me than to set up the camera at sunset and to watch & wait for the light to almost disappear into what I call the edge of darkness.

This period of the day (or is it night !) is magical to me and fits in perfectly with my photographic vision.Read More

Gulet BoatYard

I captured this image back in June while making my regular trip to the Aegean coast of Turkey.
The beautiful Gulet boats are a common sight in this part of the world and for me are iconic with Turkey.Read More

Moored Between The Reeds

I learn’t my photography by spending a many a misty dawn shooting landscapes on the Somerset levels and 20 odd years on I can still be found wandering the wetlands with my camera.

Although I have explored just about every corner of this area of Somerset it still inspires me to go out and look for new locations and shooting opportunities and I’m rarely dissapointed.

This image titled Moored Between The Reeds was shot on Shapwick Heath which is a RSPB (Royal Society For Protection Of Birds) area.

As often is the case with my work it’s been..ehh Tweaked shall we say to fit my interpretaion of the place as I see it rather than a straight record of the location as it existed.
