So I have been without a “real” camera since before Max arrived. My trusty Canon Rebel needed a new carburetor — or something — and so I had to send it off to the Canon Angels to have it fixed. When I got it back, another part immediately broke — I think it was the radiator or something — and so it was sent back again. In the time since, I’ve gotten much more friendly with my iPhone 4 camera. I love it. It’s easy to use. The pictures turn out great. I always have it with me. And there’s some great editing and sharing apps that make using it really fun.
Obviously the iPhone 4 as a camera has its shortfalls — it is after all first and foremost a device meant to play Angry Birds and Scrabble – but I find I take a ton more pictures since I always have it with me. So many in fact, that I haven’t had any trouble keeping up with an app called Project 365, in which the goal is to take a picture every day. Some days I’ve had trouble picking just one photo to include. Like the one above. There were so many cute pictures of those two. But this was my absolute favorite. I think they look like a really old couple.
Here’s some of my other favorites from January:
My favorite photo apps are Instagram, Genius and TiltShiftGen. My cousin Rebecca just also turned me onto Diptic, which I am really starting to like too. It allows you to incorporate numerous photos into one frame. The one thing I haven’t found is a WordPress plugin that allows me to be more creative with displaying photos on this blog. Does anyone know of any good ones? Drop me a note if you do!
