iPhoneography | Self Portrait | Hong Kong

Metro Park Hotel, HongKong

First day in Hongkong on Dec 2010, waiting for the sunset and blue hour on the roof top, you’d never go wrong with back light, I always love to shoot this kind of self portrait rather than a “big face”. lighting always makes different, it would be such a boring photograph without the light shining on my face.

App: Instagram    Filter: Toaster

Back light during golden hour (1 hour before sunset) is always my favorite time to shoot, on the rooftop at our hotel in HongKong, I got this great self portrait. The filter makes the light more red-ish and warm.



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.
