Photo creative

I feel a certain photo creativity growing after playing with various iPhone apps, where it is possible  to add textures and colours. I like the way the vintage feel of damaged film can be replicated and colours faded or brightened. It reminds greatly of the old Polaroids and I love the square format which I cannot produce with my work cameras. Every photo comes out differently and I can never remember what I did with each but doesn’t it then become a little piece of individual ‘art’?

To walk along the beach with just my iPhone, unencumbered by the usual heavy gear and tripod I use for work is a real liberation. In work mode I am very disciplined  and the possibilities of freehand work with a fixed focal length is so different for me but I do not  feel constrained by it. It feels refreshing. 

The images that ensue in a few spare moments with an app are beginning to lead to other ideas which may eventually find their way into my normal work.

So, work and play combined.....Wonderful!

Totally agree with the 'liberated, unencumbered' feeling - for me it's brought back the fun into photography :)
