apps [27/365]

Four years ago, in July, I got my first iPhone. Apple had lots of commercials on TV around that time, and the key phrase in those was «there’s an app for that!»

I’d never experienced a real smartphone … had a BlackBerry but it wasn’t the same thing, so I was eager to try some apps. Especially photo apps, since I’d seen some nice things people had done, online.

Tried a few, but none of them had me really awed … not until now; four years later! Before I go on, I must add that I haven’t put much energy into my iPhotography. Perhaps it’s ‘psychological’ … I always refer to the Nikon as «the real camera», and I just keep taking more or less silly snaps with the phone. When I look at what can be done, I feel I should shape up! All these photos were taken with iPhone 6s [link will open i new tab].

It does have a learning curve, but there are many tutorials online. The name is iColorama. I shot these flowers in the grocery store and applied a few effects on them.

  1. Great job, Bekah; it’s almost like you could reach right in to the shot!: )
    Good to hear so much about the size acclimatisation here, as well. It’s been on my mind since the beginning, so “Thanks!” to all of you: )

  2. I like Snapseed for my phone pics, it does a lot of things, including fun effects. This post reminded me of the first time I got a smartphone a few years ago – I could barely use it because I was not used to the touchscreen. I guess using the smartphone improves my finger coordination 🙂

    1. Snapseed was one of my first, because so many people talked about it.

      I’ve thought about that; how quickly we adapt to these things!
