If you are interested in a cool black and white photo app for iOS, then check out my newest Doc’s Guide video about Noir Photo. Here are some of my favorite iPhone portraits edited with Noir Photo and the Big Lens app.

I’ve been sort of obsessed with finding ways to incorporate an external camera flash into my iPhone photography. It started while back when I was shooting some event photos and occasionally grabbed a bit of the flash from another persons camera in my shot. The effect, which is often called Flashjacking, was cool but very unpredictable. I started trying to capture the same effect by timing a camera flash with the standard iPhone camera app, but it was too much of a pain to get just right. Then I started trying to recreate the effect with a couple of long exposure iPhone apps with terrible results until I found LightBomber. With the “ambient light amount” set to “high” and the timer set to “3 seconds” you can get fantastic results when shooting with a flash.
The photos on this set where all shot with LightBomber while popping colored flashes using a Lomography ColorSplash flash. Some shots were taken with a stationary camera, others were handheld. Some were in dark spaces (with a constant little candle light) others were taken in normal lighting. Check out the photos below and let me know what you think! Thanks.

I had the fantastic opportunity to ride around in a limo packed with mariachi performers as part of Uber’s Cuatro De Mayo campaign. Here are some of the iPhone pics I took throughout the day, I also snapped some film shots that I’ll have back early next week. Thanks to Peggy and the Uber team for letting me ride around.
Using minimal natural lighting, Coy Townson captured these wonderful black and white portraits on his Droid X and iPad. When I asked him about his favorite app for black and white photography, he said “I currently still use my Droid X with the Vignette App. This app is the reason I haven’t gone iphone even though I just got started on my ipad 3. I haven’t found anything comparable on the iOS platform that allows me to create and save my own styles then shoot with no post processing as I can with Vignette.”
We’ve been posting black and white mobile photos all, week. What do you guys think? Share your b&w shots in our OS flickr group.
Our pal Jeremy Brooks snapped this shot shortly after a dinner with Troy, Brandon, and myself. A few of us tried taking pictures through this window just off of 18th street and Mission, but Jeremy’s iPhone shot is one of my faves.

I met Winthrop in Mint Plaza today during lunch. I asked about his glasses and he said told me that he couldn’t afford to get new frames, so he took his old lenses and crammed them into a cheap pair of frames from Walgreens. Sidenote: Winthrop totally reminds me of Steven Jesse Bernstein in this photo.
I’ll be posting my own black and white photos throughout the week and searching the Objective Scenes flickr group for b/w shots for the blog too.
I’ve been trying to mess around with black and white shots a bit more, so I thought I’d post a slew of them onto the blog throughout this week.
I’ll be searching the Objective Scenes flickr group for black and whites too.
Keith Tharp captured this beautiful photo by pressing his iPhone lens against the side of a glass wall in an Apple Store in Boston. The end result is out of this world and very inspiring.
