I finally broke down and purchased my first iPhone, the 4S. Im not sure if that outs me as someone who is behind the times, poor, or just un-hip, but for some reason I waited until the 4th iteration of the iPhone to go ahead and give it a shot.
When I ran into a problem with the mirror on my Pentax K-5, I decided to send it in for a repair before the warranty expired. The loss of my camera for what could be 6 or 7 weeks has me concentrating on my oddball cameras. I have a couple of SLR cameras from the eighties, as well as a Leica C2-Zoom. Throw in the iPhone and an Olympus Pen E-PL1 and I have plenty of alternative options to continue exploring and practicing photography. The Leica cost me $50 on ebay and is a fun, if not cumbersome, camera to shoot with. It’s the only Leica i could afford, and I’m pretty sure it has some parts from a Japanese company in there as well.
I don’t claim to be great, but I love shooting. This is a series of images taken with the iPhone and the olloclip lens attachment. The wide angle side of the lens gives you great coverage for shooting buildings downtown. I see a lot of distortion, but I don’t mind it so much. It’s iPhoneography, in my mind it is just for fun, but it still never ceases to amaze me how far the cell phone camera has come.
