  • Not So Awesome

    There are many smartphone apps to help you process your images on your phone and make them more interesting without transferring them to a desktop or laptop computer. I've tried out a few, and some are really nice. There are some silly and not terrib...

  • iPhone Microscope

    When I read that there are microscopes you could buy to attach to your iPhone, my interest was piqued. I suspected it might be an expensive gimmick, but I then saw one on eBay for a little over a tenner, and since I had some PayPal credit left over a...

  • Spring Is In The Air

    Or at least snowdrops and crocuses seem to think it is! In front of the windmill near me there's a lawn with a lot of crocuses, and a few snowdrops, and it's beginning to look really good. It may be a bit early to enjoy really nice spring weath...

  • Me and My Shadow

    Well, not me myself, actually, I was speaking for this flower that I shot. Did I shoot it dead? No, it was looking a bit dead already - I left this bouquet too long, I should have bought it when I actually had time to do some serious photography. But...

  • News Booth

    I'm still trying out photo apps on my iPhone. Once again an app that no one will take very seriously, but it's fun - although only suitable for a very limited number of applications. News Booth allows you to quickly add a news format and headline...

  • One More

    Hi, I'm Conrad, and I'm a windmill addict. I've been sober for two days, but now I just have to upload another windmill shot. Sorry, but I can't help myself. So ... here's another one, processed with Snapseed:

  • App Happy

    I realise that not everyone likes grunge effects, old film looks and arty-looking borders for iPhone photos. So although I've started liking all of those options more and more, sometimes you just have to try less drastic methods, right? So here's ...

  • Snapseed Windmill

    Looking through my pictures from last Saturday, I can see a few more shots that may be worth showing you. Snapseed is quickly becoming one of my favourite apps. I quite like all the diverse possibilities it offers to almost instantly and very easi...

  • (Not) An Old Dutch Master

    I was taking a drive with Ashley and decided to make a slight detour to look at one of my favourite windmills. The sky looked pretty good, there was good light (which was about to disappear behind big grey clouds), so it seemed like a good moment to ...

  • Going Bananas

    I put my fruit bowl (actually an oven dish that I treat as a multi-functional object and use it as a fruit bowl when not in use in the oven) away yesterday to take pictures of some objects on my table, but then I decided that the bananas actually loo...

  • Percolator

    Quite a few iPhone photography apps make you wonder if you should take them seriously, but Percolator is clearly meant to be just a bit of fun. It creates either bubble mosaics from your photos, or star-filled pictures. The bubbles supposedly com...

  • Lo-Mob Lamp

    Sometimes itīs good to get away from the desk at home, and get out and about. At least I get to see things I donīt usually see. This is one of those things. Okay, nothing shockingly spectacular, itīs just a lamp. But thereīs something about it th...

  • iPhone Play In The Snow

    Ashley and I went out into the snowy woods today to have a play - she with snow, logs, branches and things like that, and me with my iPhone and a handful of photo apps. I would tell you in detail what I did with the different apps, and how usable ...

  • Second Chance

    Years ago I made an attempt to turn a colour photo taken at Samphire Hoe, near Dover, into a faux infrared image - but not very successfully, I should add. So when I knew I would be passing the location again last month, I made sure I had my IR-c...

  • Goodbye Nokiagraphy

    Before I make the definitive switch to my new iPhone, I thought I'd have a look to see if there were any usable images left on my Nokia E71. "And, were there any usable images on it?" you may ask. Well ... er ... that all depends on your definition o...
