Pocket Camera

I always take my pocket camera on my walks.

A few months ago, I started taking 30-minute walks around my neighbourhood. I always bring my pocket camera. I use the native photo app, Halide by Lux, or Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Mobile app on my iPhone 11 Pro.

Halide is a powerful photography tool for mobile devices with advanced manual controls to fine-tune settings like focus, exposure, and ISO. It has an elegant user interface and high-quality image processing.

I subscribe to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography suite for $10/month, giving me access to Lightroom, Lightroom Classic, Photoshop on macOS or iPad, and 20GB of cloud storage. I also get the mobile applications Photoshop Express and Lightroom Mobile.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Mobile is a pocket-friendly tool that packs powerful editing tools, RAW support, and seamless cloud integration. It allows me to capture, edit, and share stunning photos on the go.

    Your post was a good reminder that I carry a pretty formidable phone in my pocket (iPhone 14 Pro). I've tried in the past to be more "intentional" with my iPhone photos but I've failed because of my lack of a pragmatic workflow to manage Lightroom and Apple Photos concurrently... perhaps it's time to try one more time.

  2. This post by Khurt Williams reminded me that I carry a powerful and underutilized camera. This iPhone 14 Pro is always in my pocket.

    I'd like to be more intentional with the iPhone camera. But how? Every now and then I have the same thought. "Let me be more intentional

    The starburst is beautiful, but the curved street with the red trees got me drooling here. Beautiful photos!

    Beautiful images! I will take a look of the Halid app. Thank you for the info.

    Beautifully done!

  6. Another simple use case. I am getting used to opening the LR camera app in HDR mode on my iPhone 11. It really does provide three bracketed images that capture the best light and color in a scene. Always wipe my lens off with a cotton cloth before taking the shot.
