The Gallery: Phone Photo

I am delighted to say The Gallery is back for 2012 with "Phone Photo" as the first theme of the year which I think is a great choice. I absolutely love how easy having an iPhone has made capturing so many memories on camera, not a day goes by without me taking at least one photo and I have preserved some truly special moments in photographs over the past few years as a result. iPhone apps which are available to edit pictures take it to another fun level which can transform a fairly average photo to something very cool and impressive. I have tried quite a few apps out and my current favourites are Pixlr-o-matic, Snapseed and of course Instagram.

The picture I have chosen to use today was one I took while getting Ben to sleep last night as he lay there clutching his beloved Mickey Mouse torch. I turned off the flash on my iPhone letting the torch light providing the light source. I then edited it later using Pixlr-o-matic and I just love what the effect has added to the photo, enhancing the colours and shade bringing out the detail in Ben's eye and strengthening the colours, in particular that of the torch light.

Oh wow, this is amazing! I love this! The sleepiness in his eye is there - but so is that dream-like wonder and innocence of childhood as they drift to sleep (and those lashes!). Brilliant!
