Did you know that you can capture some awesome photos with your iPhone. I wonder if there is a photography group here in Hawaii that get’s together to go around the islands to capture the beauty they see. Since moving to Kauai two years ago, I’ve been using my iPhone for awesome photos. I enjoy it far better than my DSLR camera, that I don’t hardly bring it with me anymore.
In fact, my Digital SLR is so abandoned because it’s been replaced by my handy pocket fitting iPhone, that it’s starting to collect some cobwebs. I can’t believe I’ve been sitting on the fence for a long time before getting converted to the iPhone.
Once I saw the quality of the photos that came off my my children’s phone, I was like, “get me one of those” and I’ve been hooked since.
So what are you waiting for? Are you on the fence about getting into the iPhone photography world? You are going to kick yourself for not trying. FYI, I had a samsung. Although, Samsung has really stepped up their game. I saw aunty’s photos and they were beautiful too I must say.
iPhone 7s or Plus? Should you upgrade or not? What do you say Hawaii?
There’s always a hype when Apple decides to put out a new or upgraded device. But, I wasn’t really feeling it with the iPhone 7, maybe it was as if the greatness had gone with Steve when he left the world. I don’t know, but whatever it was, I wasn’t planning on upgrading.
So, we have that Sprint Forever plan, so basically, we can upgrade for like maybe $100 to $200 bucks to the most updated phones if we wanted to, but I was watching some crazy videos and talk online about how it’s not worth the upgrade. Some people were saying that it’s just the same thing as the iPhone 6 but just called the iPhone 7. Do you think that?
Then, last week, I came across the website, iphonephotography academy or something like that, where Emil Pakarklis teaches people how to use their iPhone camera at the next level, or i think it was him. See, I don’t always remember.
Anyway, he gave some tips and tricks to create some beautiful landscape photography. Which is not my strong point, but with the beautiful Kauai landscape, how can you not want to learn it. I’m more of a portrait photographer.
Well, Emil talked about the HDR capabilities of the iPhone 7Plus and the double camera which allows you to zoom even further, without losing quality and on top of that creating that “bokeh effect”. Haha, I just learned that word when he talked about it. All this time, I thought it was called the “blurred background effect”. So, after he showed some tips and techniques on creating these photos I was “Bamm” I’m getting me one of those.
The next day I booked it to the nearest Sprint store to get my hands on one of those and guess what, “they were backed ordered”. Nooooo!!! Real me in and nothing. They said to order it online. So, I’m doing that soon.
Get out there and make it an iPhone photo day in Hawaii!! Talk soon.
