“A Diary of Favorite iPhone Shots” — In Mississippi I realized that taking pictures is a different experience than the Bay Area, and I worked to find a “voice” in the slower paced environment. As much as I love Hipstamatic for my on-the-go pictures, I decided to try shooting with ProCamera (also for iPhone) and process my shots with Snapseed to expand my options. I like the results so far, though I’m still finding my way. During August my Instagram and Flickr streams featured shots from both Hipstamatic and ProCamera, but, for the purpose of consistency, I’m going to keep this month’s “Hello” post a short one and only feature my Hipstamatic shots. “Hello August” features Hipstamatic shots taken just before leaving San Francisco, additional shots from the road trip, and shots from Mississippi.
“A Diary of Favorite iPhone Shots” — Pinole was a beautiful, but temporary haven. In entering July, I came to the decision that I needed to make a much larger move to get to where I want to be. July presents some of my last iphone photos from the Bay Area. At least for now. Hello July.
“A Diary of Favorite iPhone Shots” — In June, I said goodbye to my studio in Oakland and moved into a temporary space in Pinole. My commute to work in San Francisco for work doubled in length thanks to being further out in the East Bay, but life has become more quiet, and thoughtful. Life, even at a slower pace, is opening up to new possibilities, and following long commutes, I enjoy time spent hiking wooded trails, reading, organizing pictures, and planning for a bigger move in the fall. These are my favorite June snapshots, taken on the go with an iPhone.
