An iPhone in Italy

Roman Flare and Afternoon Trees 

Many of my favourite images from my visit to Italy last April were taken with my iPhone. The Hipstamatic app I was using just seemed to suit my subjects and the holiday mood I wanted to convey.

I exhibited this pair in Access all Areas 2011 – The PhotoAccess Members’ Show in May. I was trying for silhouettes but the iPhone sensor, the Hipstamatic app’s Helga Viking lens and the angle of the sun conspired to deliver some additional special effects. The only post-processing I did was to crop off the white border around each photo, which doesn’t look good in prints.

    Taken about two weeks apart, in different places, too… I'm thrilled that you liked them enough to buy them – thanks, Lorna!
