“Learn the rules and then break them in such a way as to exercise good taste.”
― George Shearing
There are times where you simply have to work with what you have, and experiment a bit. On a recent walk, I did not have my DSLR with me and had to resort to my iPhone. As those who follow this blog know, I just love doing photographic abstractions, which require a longer exposure and some careful timing. This can prove a challenge with the iPhone, since it does not do time exposures as is, but there’s an app for that :). The technique took some modification and the results are slightly different, yet pleasing.
The image above is straight from the camera and has wonderful muted tones, which soften the image even more. It’s pretty amazing what we can do if we are innovative and determined.
