pile of kids (iphone/toy camera app)

ove the unexpected results I am getting with the toyphone app on my iphone -
vivid areas of sudden saturation , eyes bluer and shirts deeper lemon than they could ever be, contrast strikingly with the glaring washed out spots - all to wonderful effect - at least in my mind.
Though I love the idea of film and the look of film and the possibilities of it, I do not have the time or energy for it -
so as much as the Holga plastic cameras do beckon to me - I am really enjoying playing with this digital version - and I love pushing the iphone camera to see what I can make it do, what pictures I can make with it.
I read today that "the best camera is the one that you have with you" and I think that is true.

Very interesting.

My elder daughter bought herself a lomography fisheye a while back and is really liking it. There sure is a tendancy to take photos differently, when you know you only have 24 shots available, and have to pay for the film and developing.

Personally, I'm sticking to digital! *L*

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
