Sunday Stroll with an iPhone

Hipstamatic App processing

Hipstamatic App processing

Are you looking for an opportunity to take more photos? Then grab your camera or iPhone and take a walk. That’s what I did. Not long ago, I took to the streets of Flagstaff on a bright Sunday morning for a stroll to our weekly Farmer’s Market. Shopping for locally grown vegetables was my main focus, but I grabbed my iPhone for the trip as well. Whenever I use my iPhone I try to give myself a goal.

Today’s goal was to create images using the Hipstamatic app. I love the coloration Hipstamatic adds to photos mimicking analog cameras. Since I was shooting in full sun, this would be the best application to create interesting photos. And, if you get distracted with shopping and forget to use the Hipstamatic app; the free Snapseed app is a great substitution.

Nothing beats a Farmer’s Market when looking for something to photograph. The fresh vegetables, the flowers, even the local pets made the morning a fun photo shoot. And, I even came home with dinner. Just remember, you don’t need a grand trip to practice photography, just a Sunday stroll.
