iPhoneography | Hipstamatic | San Francisco

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

A foggy day that we can hardly see the bridge, taking pictures need luck sometimes, like this one: I was playing with Hipstamatic app, randomly press the shuttle, and amazed by the result, just play with it, you’d be amazed, this is the magic of iPhoneography.

App: Hipstamatic

Film: BlcaKeys SuperGrain

Hipstamatic is amazing! The ability to combine various lens, film, and flash effects gives you a lot of creative control over your photos.  the problem with Hipstamatic is you don’t always get what you see on the screen, which is also the fun part of this app, it provides one of the more “genuine” photo experiences that an app can provide.

iPhoneography | cityscape | HDR | Sepia | San Francisco

Financial District, San Francisco

Being raised  in one of the biggest cities in the world, I just love and comfortable being in the city, in the middle of concrete jungle, to feel “I’m alive”, this image captured this mood perfectly. anybody understand this feeling?

Look up when you walk, no matter where, you’d be surprised by the different perspective.

App: Dynamic Light + Bad camera

I used Dynamic Light  to HDR the image, the buildings in the original picture is dark, by brighten it, the image has far more information than before, then use “Bad camera” app to add the sepia tone, just play with it and have fun!

iPhoneography | Street photography | Mexico City

Metro, Mexico City

Overall, I was a little scared by Mexico City, was a little afraid of taking out my DSLR, especially in the subway (looks like bad thing can happen anytime!), so iPhone is the prefect tool to shoot from the hip, to get the most natural moment on the street.

This is probably the most popular photo App!

iPhone HDR | Landscape | South Dakota

Badlands National Park, South Dakota, USA

In general, rainy day is not a good weather for photographers, but for generating HDR image and special emotion, it’s sometimes good, this shots were taken in the car that I can use the rain drops as the foreground.

Badlands National Park is amazing in many ways, a great place to take awesome pictures, I was there in sunny days most of the time, the pictures are good but not “special”, the weather has changed in the morning right before I leave, it created the ghost like scenes, I got some of  the best pictures of my trip in the car, with camera, or simply with my iPhone, I instantly shared them online.

App: Dynamic Light

Dynamic Light gives you the best and most vibrant HDR-like look on any mobile platform. And this is all accomplished from just a single image using only a single dial. Rotate the dial to the right and you get the very same HDR look you had admired on many photographic sites.
