Venice and Waterlogue

Photographing Venice, Italy with my iPhone 6s camera, and processing the images using the Waterlogue app on the phone, is great! In fact, you could say that Venice via the iPhone and Waterlogue are a classical combination, like…Bogey and Bacall, Romeo and Juliet, Simon and Garfunkel, and peanut butter and jelly. Quick, let’s see a suite of six iPhone Waterlogue Venetian images before I come up with more word pairings! (I almost committed “Spock and Kirk”: What are your favorite two-word combos?)

I was asked (see comment and response below) what these images look like before they were processed through Waterlogue. It’s a great question! Here’s one of these images straight from my iPhone 6s:

    These images are brilliant! Beautiful fusion of air, water effects, and light! They convey a more immediate sense of presence. Love em!

    Dear Kevin—Great question. My view is the post-production is no substitute for good photography. The clearest example of this is composition, which is pretty hard to change in post. Best of all worlds is to pre-visualize the post you are going to do, and photograph to facilitate this. I’ve written extensively on this topic in my books, particularly in “The Way of the Digital Photographer.” Also happy to show before and after in person, and in the iPhone workshop I am planning for May.

    I will post one of these images before processing straight from my phone at the bottom of the story!
