Yes, I took that shot with a camera phone

It’s amazing what these little marvels can do now.  This morning, while biding my time in the rectory between baptism intakes, I took the shot this below with my Android EVA Smartphone from Sprint.  It’s a figurine on a top shelf in the rectory office. You can click on the image to enlarge.

How’d I do that? I used a free app called Little Photo, which adds all sorts of nifty effects to phone camera shots.  But that’s nothing.   Check out this stunning gallery of images taken from camera phones.  I can’t escape the feeling that this is an art form that is just getting started.

Personally I don’t have any lofty ambitions, beyond fiddling with snapshots that I can post on Facebook.  But for people with a keen eye and a creative itch, this could be the start of something big.

Can you imagine if Ansel Adams had an iPhone?

    Lovely pic., Greg. Well done!

  2. If Ansel Adams had had an iPhone he’d have taken a lot of cheap and tacky digital photos of Yosemite. Thank God he did not.

  3. That was kind of a backhanded insult, Kate.

    I like your picture, Greg. I find it very fun to take photos with a digital camera and then manipulate them. I was hopeless with a camera before the digital age. Now I can create, what is for me, nice little pictures suitable for framing.

    Kate…

    Visit the link to the gallery in my post. It will make any skeptic a believer. Some of the images are truly stunning.
