Today’s appsperiment was shot in Clarion Alley with Lomora 2, then run through the fantastic Autopainter 2 app. I opened this painted version in Filterstorm and layered parts of the original photo (mostly the bicyclist) back on top as a focal point. As usual, I did a bunch of other tiny steps (in Camera+ and other apps), but I’m just focusing on the big steps.
More fantastic work from the prolific iPhone artist, Hochlander. This piece was created using Camera+, Anticrop, Juxtaposer, Decim, Filterstorm, and Snapseed. Looks like time well spent!

I’m pretty sure that Corona Heights is my new favorite park in SF. Everytime I visit there, I get such great images. During a recent trip, I snapped a shot of this epic tree that I thought was just ripe for experimentation. With the help of AntiCrop, AutoPainter, ACDSee Camera Flash, and Filterstorm, I created the above appsperiment.
So, today’s my birthday. It’s also exactly one year from the day I first downloaded Instagram, an app that’s had a massive influence on my 2011. I spent the year documenting my life, which involved a new job, a new city, and traveling to places I’ve always dreamed of visiting. I’m feeling reflective. So indulge me, won’t you? Here’s the places I’ve been this year.
I take my phone with me when I run. You know, in case of emergencies. In this case, a rare blue sky over Hong Kong, and a cool, reflective building. All of the following images were taken within 10 minutes of each other on a Saturday afternoon in North Point, when the light felt just right.
Motivated by this weekend’s round of Occupy Wall Street evictions, I wanted to express the sense of hope I still feel for future of the movement. These evictions could be a chance for the movement to regroup and focus on their goals and how better to achieve them. Although I watch the OWS with great interest, the physical camps have never felt like something I could personally get behind. I had hoped that visiting the camps in San Francisco and New York would magically help me understand what OWS was all about, but I always left feeling even more distant from protestors. That being said, I still feel optimistic for what this movement could turn into it. This could be a fresh canvas from which to build upon.
When I spotted this gentleman at 6th and Mission, I quickly dug into my pocket and pulled out my iPhone. I didn’t have time to attach my wide angle lens, but I sure was happy for that quick camera button on the iPhone lock screen.
A shot of the phone booth at 6th and Market in San Francisco. Run through the wringer using Big Lens, Noir, and a bevy of other apps.
This is Koh Samui, an island in southern Thailand, where I’ve been holed up in a ridiculously lavish resort the past 5 days. Don’t hate. I never do stuff like this.
Anyway, I left my SLR at home, which I regretted only once – when I was at the island’s highest peak and trying to capture the depth of Samui’s vast coconut orchards leading to a pristine beach. You won’t see that image here, because admittedly there are limitations to the iPhone4 camera – or perhaps I’m just not skilled enough. But I think I did alright. Leave a comment if you agree or disagree or just want to say hi. All pics taken with iPhone4 camera and edited in Filterstorm, Picfx and Snapseed, and sometimes all three.

Joel Levin captured this shot of a boy and his dog near an Occupy Wall Street camp Philadelphia. The shot was captured on an iPhone 4 using Camera+ and Filterstorm. You can see more of Joel’s iPhone shots from Occupy Philadelphia here.

The iPhone is a great camera for capturing candid photos of strangers on the street. I don’t know of a more discreet camera. For this shot I used the Camera Genius app’s Big Button feature, which allows you to use the entire screen as the shutter button. I was able to shoot this from the hip by just tapping the screen without worrying about hitting a particular spot for the shutter button. The sun was harsh and in the original image the subject had really dark shadows around the eyes. So the first step was to open the image in FilterStorm to make a curves adjustment to lighten up the eyes. I applied this with a mask on the eyes so that the rest of the image was unchanged. Next step was to run the Camera+ Clarity preset to bring out more detail. Finally I brought the image into Cameramatic for the black and white conversion and the frame. Cameramatic has become my favorite app for black and white because it has some presets but allows you to really customize the processing.
