Sunrise from a Sunflower’s POV

I used the ProHDR app to take this shot. It does two exposures and then merges them. IMO, it turned out pretty cool. :)

Worldwide Instameet–Houston

Yesterday I attended the Worldwide Instameet in Houston. The meet up was organized by Imelda Bettinger (@Imelda) and took place at Cafe Brasil. After introductions and lunch, Mario Hernandez (@iwasframed) raffled off a cool Instagram shot on canvas. Then it was off to explore the Midtown area to take photos. It was a very fun event!

My 365 Project

Okay, I have decided to start a 365 Project, which means I take at least one photo everyday. I enjoy photography so much that I do not think I will have a problem taking one photo per day. Especially since there are so many tools that I can use on my iPhone…and that thing is with me 24/7. It will likely be an even split between my D90 and iPhone. Every now and then I will throw in a photo from my Holga (providing I learn to use it) and my husband’s old Pentax Film SLR.

Mobile Phone Photography

I love to take photos and I use whatever is at my disposal to do it even if it is my mobile phone.  I have heard so many photographers say “It’s the photographer, not the camera.” – I am working toward taking cool photos whether it’s my iPhone, point-n-shoot or DSLR. Heck, I am even considering buying one of those disposable cameras from Walgreens to see what I can do with it.

Here are few photos that I have taken recently with my iPhone –
