A personal blog by Khürt Williams, with imagery, and inchoate ramblings on coffee, beer, and geekery.
The lens and camera body are in the hands of PhotoTech Repair in Manhattan. They found no problems with the camera but will clean the sensor. I should have them both back this week.
In the meantime, I was feeling frustrated. The weather and lighting have been great this weekend. Despite my allergies, I had hoped to get outside and capture early Spring nature and landscape photographs.
We’ve had some strange Spring weather, and I’m afraid that when my camera returns the weather will switch back to April showers. I’m really tired of gray skies. I understand the rain is necessary to bring the new life, but I’d like some sun too.
So I woke up this morning around 7 AM and looked outside. Beautiful day. I made my coffee1, and a toasted a bagel with cream cheeses and smoked salmon. And looked out the kitchen window.
I couldn’t get rid of my need to capture something. It was like an itch that has to be scratched. But I didn’t have a camera.
Suddenly I realize that that was a lie! I had another camera. I have a Sony point-n-shoot, and I have my iPhone!
For some reason, I chose to use my iPhone. The Cyber-shot has similar technical specs to the iPhone but a larger sensor and more controls. But the iPhone has photo editing apps and a faster workflow. I can snap, edit and post to my blog within minutes. So I chose the iPhone over the Sony2.
This set of photos were all taken on my iPhone 5 with either Camera+ or vividHDR and then edited in Photogene4. I cropped out an area on the left of the photos of my backyard. The miniature tripod grip covered part of the lens area while I composed each photo. I added a vignette to each photo.
