A few months ago I went to a joint ADCD/ASMP presentation where Chase Jarvis talked about creativity. One thing which resonated from this talk is your best camera is the one which is with you. It doesn’t matter if it is a high end Nikon camera, point and shoot or even a cell phone camera.
Most of the images you see on this blog were taken with either a Nikon D700, Nikon D200 or a point and shoot camera. However I decided to follow in the steps of Chase and many others and start using the mobile phone as a way to express creativity and also to start to see things different in the world. Now the quality you will get from a cell phone is much different than a high end camera, but the composition elements remain the same. Using an Apple iPhone 3GS and an iPhone application I am able to be creative on the go. By doing this I have found I am looking at objects differently that I would in the past, bringing more creativity to my photography.
For the past few months I have been posting images on my Twitter feed as well as Facebook Fan Page for Neil Corman Photography. However now with a collection of images, they are now featured on this website and available for purchase in small sizes. The collect is called ‘Along the Journey…‘ as life carries on there is always time to stop and enjoy the surroundings you experience. New images will continue to be posted on Twitter and Facebook, with the top images being included for sale in the gallery.
The following images are samples of some of the images taken with the mobile phone.
Do you have a collection of images taken with a mobile device, if so feel free to provide a link in the comments.
