Not too bad photos from a camera, I’m loving a new iphone

Take a picture out of thee window of a moving car 60 MPH

Driving home with my new iPhoneย in hand, checking out the new goodies added since my first smart phone iPhoneย 3. This is an important tool for online sales, I wanted access to my etsyย shop, stay in touch and be responsive to questions, sales and so forth. So…being able to conduct my online business on the go was important. I am getting a bit off subject here, enough to say I needed a new phone, liked iPhones, easy to use, end of story.
So as my husband is cruising home, I’m playing with my new phone. Checking out the goodies, having fun with my new toy.What can this baby do?
I glanced out the car window, my eyes pop out of my head, wow what a sunset. It was just screaming to be captured on film, so unusual, dramatic. ย Isn’t that just typica?You see something that inspires you, you are already composing a photo in your mind, what a oppurunity. It’s one fleeting moment and then poof it’s gone, never to be seen again. I’m picturing an art quilt, yessireย that’dย be good. I want a picture, I want a picture..Where’s your camera when you need it? Home safe in its case.
Then I had a crazy thought, people on commercialsย say their phone is all the camera they need and always with them so convenient. Ba Hum bug, no way. But that sunset was screaming out “take a picture!!!”. Well… I do have my new phone, and it does have a camera,and since I had nothing to lose, and since I was test driving this baby..Well,why not take a picture with it?
So as we are zipping along the highway, 60 miles per hour, no settings for shutter speed. I the hate the old “tourist hanging out the car window travel photos, and that’s exactly what I’m about to do. My expectations were low to say the least.

Aside from the motion blurred effect, that I actually rather liked, arty and all, it took much better pictures than I would have ever expected. Not horrible, even a few I kinda liked raw and abstract ish, light and color and motion. I took a few andย played with them with on Photoshop. I’m surprised, but pleasantlyย so. Yeah iPhone!

60 per sunset

I would say not too bad for a phone photo

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. by my teens I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time. I was completely out of place, I tried to go unnoticed, a mute fly on the wall, with a big smile pasted on my face. I've continued to paint most of my life. After a move to Oregon years later, I was introduced to quilting and fell in love. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. There are often many changes and adjustments along the way. The result can often be surprizing. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction. I love that element of surprize! Sometimes I have one that I especially like, I can't wait to show someone. At that moment l feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. Iโ€™ve had some of my work published in several magazines. which is exciting. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt. Word press Etsy shop-sales Contact: inquiry Personal Links
