I've had fun exploring the apps on my phone and I've have been publishing many of my photos on Instagram. It's quick, easy, and the photos need little explanation. (I'm loving the #hashtag thing.) It's also the place the Big Picture Classes photographers hang out and share photos.
Smith and I were sitting on the patio last Friday night. I should have been packing, but instead I sipped a glass of wine, listened to the local community radio station play 2 hours of Jerry Garcia, and watched Smith clean up this years garlic harvest. I took the opportunity to snap a picture of two of his most prized garlic heads. Instagram provided the right mood filter.
An app I played with, but doubt I'll add permanently to my camera, provided this whimsical double exposure of two sunset photos.
My sisters desert treasures gave me the opportunity to play with the warm color of southern Utah sands and ancient rock shapes.
Since my phone is with me every morning as I drive to work, I've been able to capture the daily sun as it rises over my mountain. Adjusting the shadows and exposure with an app enhances the light. I learn with every photo and every adjustment and I've enjoyed the chance to capture parts of my day.
