Here we go … (50 photos at one per day is a lot more than I thought! LOL) … More Vancouver Island images … LOVE the beauty that surrounds me on Vancouver Island, and the fact that it changes every single day. Number 17 of my 50 Photos 50 Years iPhone image project. A friend of mine commented “Deluscious!” on this photo, and I like it! It’s a perfect description and I’m enjoying this 50th birthday photo adventure all the way, every day.

Ding. Dong. Number 14 of my 50 Photos 50 Years iPhone image project : (* Along with loving the challenge of what I call a “crappy” camera in the iPhone 3G, I LOVE a challenge of capturing simple, everyday objects in an interesting way, like this bell which hangs at my front door. Ding Dong combined with magic lighting at supper time produced a lovely result 🙂

Today was a special day, SUNNY, warm, gorgeous, and the sunset in my neigbourhood on Vancouver Island, was stunning. So, I am posting TWO images tonight for my 50 photos 50 years iPhone project. (These two are counting as image number 11, day 11)

Enjoy.

P.S. Some have asked me about these images, they can’t believe they were captured with an iPhone 3G, so here you go : These two images, the two which are “Number 11”  in my 50 photos 50 years series, were, in the final stage just prior to posting, put into Photoshop ONLY for noise reduction.

Otherwise, ALL of my images are captured AND post-processed ONLY using an iPhone 3G, unless I say so otherwise. The reason for having to use Photoshop for noise reduction on these two images only, is that often the iPhone 3G does not perform well in low light or evening situations, and the pixelization and noise is far too high for my artistic likings, and my goal with iPhone photography, is to not only use it as a powerful marketing and advertising tool, but more importantly, to create ART.

I will always tell you if Photoshop was used, otherwise, I’m a purist, iPhoneographer, using only the camera as my tool of choice. The color you see in these images came directly from the original photograph, plus via the addition of multiple iPhone applications used, so the ART, is pure. Only final noise reduction was done in Photoshop.

P.S. P.S.  There ARE iPhone apps which CAN reduce noise in your iPhone images, however, I have found their performance sub-standard.

I’m a day late! (I was too busy having FUN on the beaches of Tofino yesterday) Sooooo, I rarely post photos of myself online, but I did have a little fun on Long Beach with my iPhone … and then with Instagram, so this is Number 10 of my 50 Photos 50 Years iPhone image project :

Chilly. Me. (Copyright 2011 Brenda Johima) It was SUNNY but Chilly 🙂 LOVE Tofino on Vancouver Island. I get there as much as possible all year round, but especially summer … Pretty soon it’s time to bring out the boogie board!

Sinking Rowboat.

I had FUN on my Vancouver Island photo adventure on my way home today, as usual, just seeing whatever I could see … and find. This iPhone photo is “hot off the press” today, part of my 50th birthday project, 50 Photos 50 Years : Number 9.

I have photographed this rowboat many times before, and it’s almost always full of water, but today, it was even more special for some reason, the angle, the lighting, and I could get just a little closer than usual, then once I added a few iPhone apps, I now have … ART! I’m thinking it’s one of my favorite pieces now (until next time).

It was hard to choose a photo today. It’s raining, raining, raining, and cold, cold cold.

Spring is here one day, then it’s freezing the next. So what could I possibly photograph on my iPhone today? My wood stove fire on April 20th! This is an iPhone photograph and part of my 50th birthday project, 50 Photos 50 Years : Number 8

P.S. This is the very first one of my iPhone photos which I just HAD to add a little Photoshop. The iPhone 3G is really a crappy camera, and I have had tremendous success in turning all of my previous images into art, via photo apps, however, in low light situations, where this image was taken, the perfectionist in me just could not stand the high level of noise, so I did smooth it out slightly, and reduce noise. So for the purist iPhoneographers out there (like me) yep, I broke my own law today and added a touch of Photoshop (noise reduction only).
