Picks from my Phone’s Gallery

I usually hate using a phone as a camera because I don’t have as much control compared to an actual camera. BUT, my new approach to photography (which I’ll write about in another post soon) takes care of that issue. I don’t want control anymore! I only want to point & shoot. back to basics, I guess.

Here are a few recent picks from my phone gallery.

To me, using the phone as a camera feels like cheating. I can’t deny I take some good shots sometimes! Still! Cheating! I really hate smartphones!

A Walk in the Night: 11/May/2017 Midnight

I just came back home with these photos around an hour ago. I was itching to take some photos I couldn’t sleep. I had to go out an add a few more pieces to my Ingrained in the Night series.

The moon’s beautiful these days. I didn’t take as many photos as I’d hoped but I sure did enjoy the walk. I just love night walks. It’s quiet in the street and serene in my head.

The photo below is from the center of the town or perhaps the more lively part. Anyways, it’s not lively now as you can see.

A Walk in the Night 26/04/2017

Around two hours ago, I went out for a walk and I took a few shots for my Ingrained in the Night series.

Only three of the photos were decent enough to consider adding to the collection.

Picks From Feb. 1st 2017 Part 1: Textures

I took a walk in town with my camera two days ago, took a lot of shots. I spent yesterday processing most of them and now I’m ready to post them.

For this first collection, I picked all the photos that include any kind of texture in them.

I enjoy taking pictures of tree trunks. I love that no matter how many times I take pictures of the same tree, the texture almost always looks different within the frame.

These photos show one side of the same tree trunk. you can already see that; they’re not that different; but they are different in the way the texture conjures images in my head. I find that very interesting and enjoyable.

So I hope you liked the high-contrast textures. I’m not very into it but I never shy away from any subject that has photographic potential.

Next part will be Green & Blue.
