With the advent of the camera phone, everyone it seems now has the opportunity to capture the images that take hold of them, capture them, on a daily basis.
For an artist this could be a little disturbing, but why should it be. Everyone should have the right to be able to create art, whether it’s with a brush, pencil or a camera phone!
So I thought, why not publish some of the photo’s I’ve taken on my phone? It’s a relatively low megapixel iPhone 3Gs, but even with it’s limited 3.2mp quality it is still capable of taking a half decent photo’.
The really cool thing about smartphone technology is that you no longer need thousands of pounds of Adobe software and a high end Mac to play with images. You can download a handful of Apps and play around to your hearts content!
I’m using Snapseed, Dynamic Light, Pic Grunger and PhotoToaster Apps (Thanks http://rubicorno.com/ for the tips). Most of which are either under £2 or free. So give it a go. Take a photo, pull it into an App and play around and have some fun! Here are some of mine:
