iPhone pic . . .

Joe, Owen, Elle and I went to Grand Valley Nature Preserve tonight for a walk.  I only had my phone with me.  When I saw Elle pointing across the lake to Joe and Owen I knew I had to capture it.  I’m a teeny bit bummed that I didn’t have my DSLR, but I’m also pretty impressed with how well this came out on my iPhone.

Jennifer - Did you use a specific app for this? Filter? If I had tried to take this photo with my iPhone 5 it would be very grainy. So grainy I wouldn’t have even tried to capture the moment.

Melissa - Jennifer- I ran the photo through Pictapgo (http://pictapgo.com/) and just bumped the saturation a bit. I looked at my original and it is not grainy at all. I have the iPhone 5 and I feel like it’s pretty good in low light. The only place I get grain is indoors at night. The photo above was still relatively well lit by the sunset. If I shoot indoors at night I usually convert my pics to b+w because I actually love that grain. HTH!

Kathy - Melissa, I’m just wondering if you have worked out what you are going to do with all your weekly photos of the 4 kids from last year. Do you think you are going to put it in a photo book? You are so lucky to have that many photos with all 4 kids and they have been very accommodating and when I say that I’m sure before or after some photos it make not have seemed that way. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

Melissa - Kathy- I made a book through My Publisher which turned out AWESOME! I also had a collage canvas made that I really don’t care for now that I have it. Sadly, this year has been hit or miss. It’s so hard to get all 4 together. I’m so glad I was able to complete one full year. I think I’m just going to grab Speelman 4’s where I can for the rest of this year.
