A few weeks ago Chase Jarvis introduced a new iPhone app called bestcam. It came from the book he just release call “The best camera is the one you have”. I haven’t bought the book yet but I did down load and install the free app on my iPhone. This new app and Chases inspiration has really inspired me to start taking more pictures with my iPhone. So here are a few of my pictures.
This is Annie. I took her, her son and my daughter to a river maze in Polk County Tennessee. We had a great time despite the cold and wet conditions.
I go to a local Baptist Church called Westwood. This is the painting on one of the walls. The photo was edited with the bestcam app.
A late night trip to the local Krispy Kreme doughnut shop yielded this picture. Annie and I were sitting at our table and this was the view. Beautiful if I do say so myself.
This one was taken as I was driving. I used a self timer app to take a few pictures as I was driving so it was done with minimal attention given to my phone. It was edited with the bestcam app.
I was just about to get into my truck when I noticed a large shadow of myself and thought it might make an interesting picture.
We had a special event today and I thought I would take some pictures of the band who came to play. The lighting was horrible and the background wasn’t that good, but I think I got a few good shots. I shot these with my Nikon D300, 18-135mm lens in M-mode with an ISO around 2000. My shutter speed varied between 1/50th and 1/100th.
The band performed in the gymnasium and the overhead lights were turned off. The only available light came from some theater style spot lights that where floor mounted in the front of the band. This caused some pretty harsh shadows on the walls.
I’m fairly pleased with how the pictures came out. This is the first time I have taken a lot of shots with a fairly high ISO. Enjoy!
In May of this year (2009) I was looking around on www.daveramsey.com and noticed that my hero, Dave Ramsey, was coming to Atlanta in September. I had no idea if I would be able to go or not and if I could, I had no idea who I would take with me, but I ordered two VIP tickets. As the months rocked along I thought I might as well take Annie since we usually have a pretty good time with each other.
We left out early on that Saturday morning, probably too early, but I’m just an early kind of guy. It rained the whole way down. Once we got into Atlanta we used my trusty garmin GPS to locate the Atlanta Civic Center and then we found our way to the nearest Dillards (Annie needs a dress for the Navy Ball in Nov).
On the way back to the Civic Center I saw a beautiful building in the downtown area so I pulled out my iPhone and snapped this pic.
We finally made it back to the Civic Center and walked in right as the doors opened and were probably one of the first two VIP’s to get to find a seat. We got GREAT seats, only four rows back from the stage. WOW!!!
Dave spoke for almost five solid hours (minus two 20 minute breaks). It felt like we were only sitting there for about thirty minutes. Dave Ramsey has a way of getting you to hang on every word he speaks. He is an absolutely wonderful person and I am glad I was able to go see him. I will see him again thats for sure and the next time, I’m getting Platinum tickets!
