This is a public phone still in use in the streets of Milano. This has been shot with my iPhone 3gs.
The app used to shot the image was HDR Pro, cropping and adjustments were done using Snapseed, further editing was done using Dynamic Light, Pic Grunger and Phototoaster.
Yeah, I know. It’s been a little over a week since I last updated. While I feel a bit guilty about that, at least I have work to show for it! Spring is beginning to bloom all over Michigan, and our front garden officially has full grown tulips and those little wild purple flowers that we call hatchets in Romania.
Also, remember that avocado-lemon pie? I revamped it and made it using strawberries instead (and shortbread). It’s super delicious and I want to try it out in multiple other flavors. Aaand, I made a blackberry-banana smoothie for breakfast a few days ago that I managed to take a few pictures of right before I had to head out. It was delicious. But there were like a million seeds.
And of course, what’s a week without a few pictures of myself? I was feeling pretty fly on…

After my last set of Holga photos made me so happy, I was hoping I’d moved past my slump with the camera. The last roll of black and white I shot proves that’s not quite the case. I think part of the problem is I didn’t pick exceptionally interesting subject matter and I had the counter set wrong (12 exposures when not using a mask, not 16…), but I really think b&w on the Holga just doesn’t suit the way I shoot with it. I like the “dreamy” aspect of it all, but I think color lends to that whereas black and white leaves it feeling kind of muddled for me. Maybe I just need a clearer sense of subject and what I’m aiming to accomplish with it all.
Either way, I took a roll of Fujifilm Color out to the zoo with me earlier this week and that’s already…

Lately I’ve seen my friends posting about how they’re getting snow, hail, and rain, so I thought I owed it to them to go out to the beach and watch the sunset last night. The tripod and I nearly got taken out by a wave when I first started shooting on the shore. Luckily I saw it out of the corner of my eye when I was looking at my phone. I was able to grab the tripod and jump back onto some rocks just in time.
The first two images were created with Slow Shutter, which allows you to do long exposures, and edited in Snapseed. You really need a tripod to get long exposures as sharp as possible. I do use a tripod, but I don’t have a case to mount it on their properly. I just hold my iPhone as still as I can against the tripod…
