iphoneography












Lately, I've been more compelled to carry around and snap shots with my iPhone than I have been to lug around my real camera (which also means I've been super active on Instagram lately). Since getting my iPhone in March, I feel like I finally understand the mobile photography movement. The best camera you have is the one that you have with you, and I am definitely more equipped to shove my phone in my pocket when I am out and about than to hang my big camera around my neck or over my shoulder and risk the weird stares when I start taking pictures of flowers at the grocery store.

Since losing my tripod, my phone is also how I've been taking selfies. Timercam selfies are always a work in progress for me... it feels like my first 365 all over again, running back and forth to see if I got the right shot or need more practice and need to take another one. It's nice to feel like I'm experimenting with a different method of photography.

I think all in all this iPhoneography movement feels good. It's different for sure, but there's never anything wrong with that.
