Some More iPhone Photos

Like the last phone photo post, the post-processing on these is more for sun than for anything else. Though I personally tend towards more natural looking photography, it’s fun to mess around with the post-processing that iPhone apps have to offer.

All of these were taken on my walk home yesterday, except this first one, which was taken last week right before a lamb skewer dinner.

iPhone Photo 01

I’ve gotten sick of lugging around my dSLR everywhere I go, but I’ve discovered that with a little bit of ingenuity and a host of sometimes-hokey editing software, I can take some interesting photos with the iPhone. Granted, they definitely have this iPhone photo editing app look to them, but I appreciate them for what they are. Here’s one of my favorites so far–it was taken outside an Irvine apartment complex. One of the many wealthy brats’ cars. Made for an interesting snap, though.

Easiest Panoramas Ever.

This is a shot of the tile art at 建国门 (Jian4guo2men2) subway stop on Beijing’s Line 2.
I wish I used my phone to take panoramas in Yunnan instead of my DSLR. The software on the phone stitches panoramas SO MUCH better than anything I’ve found on the computer thus far (that isn’t really expensive). Oh well–gives me an excuse to head back to Yunnan. Speaking of which, I will try and get thos photos up as soon as possible, but I honestly don’t think it’s going to happen till after I head back home.

Oh, and excuse that lame white border. The Autostitch panorama app makes great panoramas, but only if the photographer doesn’t suck so much that he doesn’t take wide enough photos to fill out the corners of a panorama.

The Week Before Finals

Taken at 4:30AM (and edited shortly thereafter) this morning, all with my iPhone. I’ve recently taken to using my phone for photos, because it’s a lot more convenient, there are some pretty great (if not somewhat gimmicky) photo applications for it, and I don’t like skating with my camera every day. My balance/luck is not good enough. On a long enough timeline, disaster is sure to strike.

Anyway, here’s a few other photos taken and edited on the phone.

Money money money. Taken outside 动物园, which is the Beijing zoo. Nobody goes to the zoo, but everybody goes to the cheap clothing markets just across the street. It was driven by some 小白脸儿 (Chinese for boytoy), dressed like a moron. Lucky for him he doens’t have to care because he’s driving an effing Ferrari.

Also, I found some longboards in Beijing a long time ago. Shitty quality, 2000+ RMB.

I’m so glad I brought my own.

But back to life–I’ve got a ten-page paper to write, ten days worth of missed class and the obligatory homework that comes with to catch up on, and what I think is a gum infection.

I’m really going to miss China. For the five weeks I’m back in America.
