Simple Fun with my iPhone Camera

It's true when they say a camera is simply a tool for the photographer. And while the features of any given camera may make the photographer's job easier, the camera itself doesn't take the picture - the person behind the lens does.

Case in point - some pictures I took with my new iPhone. I have the old (cheaper) 3G phone, so we are talking the 2 MP sensor, no zoom, no fancy controls. Pretty basic stuff.

I modified this pool picture using the iPhone app, PhotoBox. I applied their red flare filter:
Red tide at the pool?

And I'll admit - taking pictures with this simple camera is so simple and freeing - no apertures, shutter speeds to think about, no white balance adjustments, no Photoshop - just frame the shot, hold steady and click. Then email to flickr.

No, I'm not about to sell my sophisticated camera equipment, but the simple camera balances all of that sophistication out. Something we need every now and then.

The first picture is just unreal Shirley. I just love it. I wish I could get an iphone. At&t doesn't even get reception in my area!

I am amazed at some of the pictures we get from our iPhones. Missing you over at 2ps - but glad to see you still snapping away. (BTW: really like that pool shot!)

Wow, neat shots! I really like the first one.

I think the iphone takes great pictures! And I hear you about it being freeing. I need to get a point and shoot!

AWESOME shots! I was amazed at my hubby's iphone's camera, and now I want one! Sure beats lugging around the "big boy" camera all the time!

Those are great, my BB takes lousy shots. I have a p&s that I use sometimes, I agree on how freeing it is! :)

Wow, I am impressed with the quality! I want an iphone too!
