Working with my mobile “fun” camera

Saturday was a gray and moist day in Berkeley, California. I took the kids out to a playground up higher in the coastal range, and all of a sudden we were in the middle of a cloud, with light but persistent precipitation. While the kids played in the sand, I used the camera app on my iPhone to snap a photo of the eucalyptus trees in the fog.

Standing under a sheltering tree, I processed the image on my iPhone in about five minutes, using Filterstorm, Plastic Bullet, and the 60s Square Virage filter from Lo-Mob.

I don’t think my need for high resolution, an optical viewfinder, and a variety of “real” lenses is likely to be satisfied anytime soon by my iPhone camera—but what you can do on a mobile “fun” is great and pleasing in its own right!

About the time I finished processing, the day grew even wetter—and by parental fiat we decided to bag the playground before everyone got soaked to the bone.
