I have a short side project that I am having fun with. It is a 31 day challenge. A friend of mine who was one of the first people to tell me this is a good shot but if you did this next time it will be a better shot and showed me what he was talking about. People in the group called him a variety of names for the "negative " comments. I had to speak up and say no you're wrong he gave me exactly what I asked for and wanted. Ever since then we talk and are facebook friends . Well a few days ago he was challenged to a 31 day challenge and in turn challenged me to participate . I told him I would but I am going to use my cell phone. I already had a dslr project going.
Why Cell Phone ? Honestly because it is a camera that I carry but rarely use. It has a manual mode and even shoot raw but I do not use it. Mainly because I do not understand how to use it best or I have not screwed up enough shots yet.
Day 4 I took this shot because when I went out for a walk with the film camera and was looking for something to snap a few frames of this caught my eye and then I thought it would be interesting to see differences in Digital and Film . I did run this one through NikAnalog effects and Lightroom the first two were processed in Snapseed a phone app I like. One day I will try LR Mobile but not today.
It may sound odd but so much about shooting with a phone is foreign to me I guess it will just take practice .
I finally found a local place to print the small cookbook now to talk with the boss later and see what she thinks Color photos are a bit over double what the cost of a black and white one would be so that might be the next decision. I also have a scanner coming this week that will allow me to scan film and slides so I am excited for that. Also a monitor calibrator and a film developing kit . I am looking forward to the film developing kit and scanner most because this is two things that I have wanted to do for a while now.
