Backlit Flowers

I don’t know what these flowers are called but my friend Bert spotted them on the roadside today and thought they looked nice backlit. I had to jump in for a couple of shots too.

The Mums are Blooming

I tried to come up with a way to edit this shot of a mum from our flower bed but the sheer, simplistic beauty of it kept me from going beyond a slight boost in saturation. They truly are a work of God’s art.

 

iPhoneography

iPhone photography, or iPhoneography, has just exploded over the past few years and with the introduction of the iPhone 5 it’s only going to get more popular. I think it’s high time I started utilizing my blog more to showcase my own iPhoneography. So without any more hesitation, I might as well start with a bang.

I wandered out to the Grey Sauble Conservation Area a couple of days ago with Canon 60D in tow and started to photograph the Sydenham River. The overcast sky made for perfect shooting conditions. After a few shots with the Canon I took took out my iPhone 4S and opened a neat little camera app called Slow Shutter.

I’ve been waiting for a scene like a flowing river to try this app. I had another app that I tried on Indian Falls once but the results were less than satisfactory for me so I was really hoping for the best with this one. Slow Shutter didn’t disappoint. I was thrilled. The result is the image below. Literally no changes made to the image other than cropping to the 16:9 format. Yes, this is an iPhone photo.
