For many years I’ve been fighting the temptation to buy a smartphone, but I finally caved in to it and bought an iPhone 4. The main reason for resisting the temptation so much until now is because I am “afraid” of being permanently connected, I am afraid of losing the “freedom of not being connected”; including when I’m not at work or at home. To avoid this I’ve set up my own rules, for example: “not using Facebook from my iPhone”, and focusing only on using the iPhone mainly to “strengthen my hobbies”: taking photos and reading. Up until now the iPhone apps that I’ve used the most are: Camera, Email, Flickr, Photos, Photoshop Express, Runkeeper and Amazon Kindle.
Being able to take photos and retouch them instantly using Photoshop Express is awesome, even though they could have made it even better, Photoshop Express is quite limited. Let’s hope a Lightroom Express is made for the iPhone. The iPhone 4 camera has really impressed me, since I’ve had an iPhone I’ve not used my beloved Canon S90 much. Of course, it can’t compare to the quality of the S90 but it’s good enough for most of the pictures when I don’t feel like taking out my Nikon D90.
These are some of the best pictures that I’ve taken using my iPhone 4:
Any ideas, advice or recommended apps to take good photos using the iPhone? Until two days ago I didn’t know that just by touching the screen you could focus/calculate the light!
