Photos Taken with iPhone 4S

Call me a sellout. Or, call me on my iPhone 4S and tell me that. I’ll admit I’ve silently made fun of people for taking images with cell phones cameras (mainly when they were about 1.2 megapixels). I’ve taken photos with my cell phone camera in the past, but never shots that I might want to print or have for archival purposes. The iPhone 4S has changed my view on that. I’ve been having lots of fun playing around with the camera. I am a professional photographer (i.e. – full-time) and have lots of great Nikon gear, but there is something very liberating about using such a small, simple device to take photos on. It’s great to always have a good camera (for most scenarios) in my pocket. For instance, I would never bring a big, full-frame camera into the grocery store to take random pictures of vegetables (see carrot shot).

I have been using the Instagram app, which forces me to shoot in a square ratio (1:1). It’s a lot different than just taking a 6:4 ratio shot and then cropping it. I rarely intend on cropping an image to square when I’m shooting with 35mm.

All these images were taken using an iPhone 4S (most of them with Instagram). I am amazed by the sharpness of the first picture of my cat, Pierre.

On the Streets

 

Here is a series of photos that I feel go well together. All of these were taken somewhere in downtown Asheville.

Rural Carolina (Taken with Fujifilm X100)

A few rural shots of western North Carolina taken with a Fujifilm X100. Overall I’m loving this camera and am really impressed thus far. I’ll be posting more photos with it in different environments.

New York City

In April I traveled to New York City for a client photo shoot. Here is a slice of the Big Apple via some of my personal photography from the trip.

Boom Chix – Asheville

The Boom Chix are a rhythmic, drum bangin’ dance troupe from Asheville, NC. They performed at the Diana Wortham Theatre on February 18 for Artspace’s After Hours Cabaret benefit. There were many other wonderful acts on this night (including Al Pettaway & Amy White) but I thought I’d share some photos of the Boom Chix to kick it off.
