It’s official. I shot a photo session using only my iPhone!
Okay, yes, it was an impromptu shoot with some friends. But I did have the big Canon in the trunk of my rental car, and opted to use just the iPhone instead. I have dreams of a future where I burn my camera bags in an ancient-inspired ceremony indoctrinating my iPhone as my one and only true image-capture method, my neck and shoulders shouting praise for the wondrous device that frees me from lugging equipment…
Truthfully, I doubt such a day is that far off. I’d like to try a lens adapter or a mountable flash on my iPhone soon, and I think it could be entirely viable as a professional choice with a few more advances in resolution. In the not-too-distant future, I imagine I’ll be able to store custom, one-touch photo-edits right there on my tiny device, making it totally unnecessary to plug into a larger one and be tethered to my desk for hours and hours of photo editing.
A girl can dream, anyway. For now, enjoy these fun shots of my friends — we were graced with the most beautiful, sunny, warm November day in Zilker Park, Austin, Texas. (As a Clevelander now, I can’t emphasize enough how fun it is to use warm and November in a single sentence.)
If you dig the look and feel of these (different from my usual work, eh?), I would encourage you to pop over to my Instagram feed, where there are about a gazillion more photos in my log. Okay, 1,551. But still. And, personally, I don’t know why you’d bother looking at this on the web, since Instagram is such a fun and easy app, but there is a handy link now, if you require such a thing: http://instagram.com/sarahsloboda/.
