You have to click on this image to see the detail that the Sigma DP3 Merrill is capable of. It’s such a beautiful camera and lens. I’m glad I got this camera. This is a shot of a bench in Pioche, Nevada, that has been here for years and is eroding away.
This is a cottonwood tree below a beautiful cloudscape a few years ago. Image was shot with one of my Panasonic Micro Four Thirds cameras. Later, I edited the raw image in Lightroom and just recently exported it to my iPhone 4S where I ran it through an iPhone app that creates the sepia, grain, dust and scratches. It’s called Scratchcam! This may be an effect that some people don’t like, but for me it communicates how I feel about my art and the intuition that I share deep inside with my images. I think it’s awesome that digital technology has come such a long way that we can now edit images from an handheld device. I’m having a blast shooting images with my iPhone 4s as well and enjoying the art of what they call, iPhoneography. If these new changes to photography are revolutionizing the way we view and capture the world, then I want to be at the forefront of this photographic rennaisance instead of sitting on the sideline.
The iPhone 4S has a nice little camera. I’m getting hooked on the portability of this little phone and the quality of the images. You’re probably going to scoff at me, but I’ve become obsessed with iPhoneography! Stay tuned.
