iPhoneography, The Vegas Edition; Part One

All the images shown here were taken with the iPhone using various apps. I had a great deal of fun shooting with the iPhone in Las Vegas. I used mostly the Hipstamatic and I kept the "shake" mode on to get a different film and lens combo each time. And, I discovered a new favorite: Chunky lens paired with Pistil film (which you'll see in a future post as I took way to many to bombard you guys all at once!).
In the words of Samuel L. Jackson..."You know what's cool?" iPhoneography. iPhoneography is cool.

Night Life
We took a limo from the airport and took a long way to our hotel...along the strip, in and out of resorts. I tried snapping pics out the window but it was too dark. I liked this one though.

The Endless Hallway
I took a shot of this with my D90 as well for a digital art piece that will be something reminiscent of The Shining.  Now, if I can just find some spooking looking twins. :)

Hi Laura!

Few days ago, while avoiding work and surfing the net (ah, sweet procrastination!) I came across the ten golden rules of Lomography. The essence of the rules was: “Don't Think, Just Shoot”. This made me think of how much I miss the times when I was just starting photography: not obsessing over "correct" composition, exposure, lead-in-lines etc. but just shooting for the fun of it!

Your recent Iphoneography reminds me of that spontaneous photographic gold that happens when you’re going with your impulses, seizing the moment and just having a blast while shooting - there's magic in these images!

So, once again: thanks for the inspiration! (I’m still not buying an Iphone, though ;))
-Hope you’re having a great week!

Your images are interesting. I love your subjects and the way they are processed in your phone. I can't wait to see what you do with the endless hallway.
