These horses were photographed in the Cariboo of B.C., on one of my adventures, and this image is an example of what you can do with only the Camera+ iPhone app applied (including the frame) during post-processing.

* I mentioned Camera+ during my session as a Speaker at Social Media Camp.*

Here’s a little more information in another post about Camera+ and it’s developer. Camera+ is an easy to use app, for beginner photographers to advanced image makers, although in many of my other photos, I do tend to use Camera+ when combined with another app as well, or in addition to.

In order to get the most creative and artistic effects, I rarely anymore, rely on only one app per photograph. However, if you are just starting out with iPhoneography, this is an awesome place to start!

TIP : Have FUN, take loads of photos, get out there, off of the computer, and focus on the JOY of iPhone photography first, over anything else 🙂

Pull out your iPhone, here’s one of my secret tips for you iPhone photography lovers out there.

(today) If you were to purchase only ONE iPhone photography app to get started, here’s a good one. Camera+ is a super app for anyone, from beginner, to advanced photographers. It’s one of my most used apps.

If you would like to read a little more information about the Camera+ iPhone photo app, here’s the success story, and a little bit about the woman developer of the app. I LOVED hearing this success story, and that it is a woman app developer (Lisa Bettany), even better. ( ** after writing this post, Lisa replied to my Tweet to tell me that she actually grew up on Vancouver Island, in Victoria. Even better! Another Vancouver Island success story! You can follow Lisa on Twitter here : @mostlylisa ** )

So if you are looking for a new career, and have the talent for iPhone app development, there is not a better time than right now, to figure it out, and dive in.

TIP : Here’s an example of how you could quickly enhance a basic iPhone photo using Camera+. Here is the original image, right out of the iPhone camera, and it’s an “average” photo. It’s just “OK” in my opinion:

Dozen Eggs

Next, here is that same original, with the “clarity” filter applied, which makes an “average” photo a little sharper, a little more vibrant, with the colors a little more saturated. This is not a “gimicky” application to a photo, which I like, but simply a way to make an “average” or “OK” iPhone photo just a touch better:

Finally, here is the original, cropped to square using Camera+ and then with a couple of filters applied, one on top of the other, in order to achieve another possibility for an interesting and creative photo, with a different composition, bringing your subject (eggs) in, even closer, and with new color enhancement applied:

The possibilities are endless with Camera+ so have FUN with it 🙂

Here’s one more image, and an excellent example of what you can do, when using only the Camera+ app: Horses on a Horse Ranch in the Cariboo of B.C.

Thanks for popping by my blog, and I hope this has been eggxactly what you needed to see and hear today 🙂 More iPhone Photography Tips coming soon!


P.S. Camera+ is one of the iPhoneography photo apps that I mentioned at my Speaking Engagement at Social Media Camp 2011 ** If you would like to book me as a workshop presenter or speaker on iPhone photography, and on how you can use it as a marketing tool for your business, and/or simply for personal creative expression through art, please call me at 1 (250) 335 – 1195 **



Some of my best photographs have been taken while driving down the road towards a destination, seeing something interesting out in a field, and then pulling over to the side of the road, grabbing the camera, hopping out of the car, and then having a really great travel experience moment. It’s the moments that matter.

I LOVE the spontaneity of vacations and travel photography, and some of the best vacation photographs are taken not once you arrive at the destination, but on the journey. Just like life?

And about this image? Well, horses are curious. That is one of the things I love about them. I always have my camera super ready, whenever I see horses before I even get out of my car, because 99% of the time, if they think you have good energy (and they do psychically know) then they will come over to the fence and see you.

Some of the best shots happen while the horses are coming from far away in the field, over to see me. That is when I shoot on high speed continuous and/or TV mode as they are coming towards me. This image was taken in the Interior of British Columbia. Love the birds in the image as well!
