Welcome back to another iphone friday - where I share some of my iphone photos from the last week, and recommend an app or two to get the most from the amazing camera lurking inside your smart phone.
Saturday (day 12 of 365)
cleaning the bathroom was no excuse no to take an iphone pic or two
We went out for lunch with friends in Victoria Square - this is the roof
It was shopping trollies that caught my eye while doing the weekly shop
I bought these flowers for a friend - a beautiful shade on a grey Northern Ireland day
I spent the day working on some new products for www.janmarydesigns.com
It was a cold, wet day, as you can see from the view through my car window at school pick-up time
I had a meeting in Belfast, near the Albert Clock (our own Leaning Tower of Pisa!)
Today - Friday (18/365)
This morning it was earrings being made
and currently the camera pair are proving most popular.
There has been a lot of snow in the UK, and today we are due to finally have some.
This was about 1pm
Nothing too dramatic yet but it is getting heavier and the kids in the street are excited!
My daughter has just walked home from school (I promise - I did offer to pick her up) and this was her icy blazer and scarf.
Iphone apps of the week
camera app AND editing app - Camera+
I discovered this app having watched Jack Hollingsworth online demonstrate it's capabilities, and for a long time it was the only app I used. There is a bit of a steep learning curve with it, but worth persevering with.
What I probably love most about the camera function is that you have the option of having separate control over the focus and exposure.
In the creative part of the app - where you can edit and add filters, I love the Clarity option for an instant boost (although it is all or nothing - you can't vary the strength) and also the Contessa effect - which can be added with varying degrees of intensity.
It is one of the slower apps on my phone, but worth the wait!
I've received some great encouraging feedback on this new weekly series. If you want to join in, and share a few of your iphone pics on a Friday I would love you to use this badge and link up.
