Photography On The Go

When the theme of Photographic Resolutions was set for The Gallery a few months ago, I had to have a long hard think about what mine would be. Amongst them were; learn how to use the manual settings on my dSLR (still no idea), and be in more photos (my husband is taking more but he needs to do it more surrupticiously). The first resolution was to learn how to use mobile photo editing apps.

I stated at the time that the reason I don't use the camera on the iPod Touch is because it's shockingly awful, and while the camera on my phone (HTC Desire) is ok for outdoor shots, it's a bit rubbish at indoor photos. Also the photo editing app on my phone is complicated to remember all the different filters, but I do like the Instagram app for the Apple market (there's now an Instagram for Android, but it's not as good because there's no tilt-focus option).

I finally twigged that if I emailed over the photos taken on my phone to my iPod then I could edit them on Instagram there; hurrah! And then I discovered the wonderful app Camera+ for iOS, courtesy of HPMcQ who does brilliant things with it. Now there is no stopping me and I'm Instagramming all over the shop.

I think I've managed to cross one of those resolutions off my list, here are some of my snaps taken on my phone or iPod.

If you'd like to join in and show off the photos you've taken on the go, I've added a linky below so we can all admire each other's handiwork. It could be a blog-post, a twitpic, an Instagram url or a flickr picture. Join in and let's have some fun!

    Oh I am definitely going to have a go at this – what a great idea! How do you manage to get all your photo's organised like you do on your blog post? I still cannot work out how to not do them just one under the other?

    What is ios? I shall check out that app. x

      iOS is the name given the Apple operating system, it's not Windows it's iOS.

    I'm loving Instagram at the moment, although I tend to use the same filter & frame on all my photos as I love the frame on the Earlybird…but now I have photo+ the possibilities are endless!

    I shall make sure that I link up to this- I took some lovely photos at my Dad's wedding. I am obsessed with taking photos on the go, must take about 30 a day on my iphone and at last count I had 43 photo app's on my phone! Eek! I have even started a new blog all about my mission to be better at photography. You have some lovely photos there- they look great. I love the one of the sun poking through the tree's. x

    This looks great! I am a sloppy pic taker and it's only from seeing other photos I discovered things like. But I am an avid iPhone snapper. I will have a look a have a bash early next week after the family wedding shindig is over. I should actually have some nice material by then!
