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

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

Driving home with my new iPhone in hand, checking out the new goodies added since my first smart phone iPhone 3. This is an important tool for online sales, I wanted access to my etsy 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.  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, yessire that’d 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 commercials 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 and played with them with on Photoshop. I’m surprised, but pleasantly so. Yeah iPhone!

60 per sunset

About Myself & My Approach I come from a family filled with many artists.s 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 totally out of my league, a kid among so many serious adult artists. But to be there, exposed to art in that way was quite an experience. I was enraptured, soaking up. I tried to go unnoticed, just a fly on the wall, mute, a big ole smile plastered on my face. soaking it all up. I tryed to go unnoticed; a mute teenager, eyes wide opened and a huge smile plastered across my face. I’m pretty I was noticed, a mute kid with an enraptured look on my face. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, one being raising my wonderful children. My circumstances have changed, the kids grown, I had more time and Art was like theorpy for me. I was introduced to the world of quilting & fell in love. I did miss the creative freedom painting afforded. 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. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. themselves, my appproacj response js an instinctual one. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I 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. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifingvl. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased quilt.
