In response to demand for cellphone shots

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll know that I covered an article recently about using that humble bulge in your pocket….no, not what you think!

I’m talking about your cellphone. Let’s face it, we will have at least one, and I know colleagues who have 2 or more, for whatever reason. Cellphones have become a necessary evil these days, and to prove how attached we all are to them, just try leaving yours at home when you’re out in town…you will very soon feel isolated and out of touch.

Myself, I am trying to carry it less and less these days, and to tell the truth, I find the release from being immediately contactable, so liberating. I can wander wherever I want to, without anyone asking me where I am or when I’ll be back or what I’m having for supper.

Anyways, getting back to that article about cellphone photography and it’s very popular add-on Instagram, I’ve had a horrendous amount of emails, the majority supporting it, and a few against. But what frightens me most is that so many readers are demanding digital photography information, that very soon I might be writing more about that, than what this blog was originally intended for, that is, film photography! However, you need not fear, brethren….as long as there’s breath in my body, i will continue to push film as real photography!

Also amongst those emails were many, many requests asking for samples of Instagram at work. Well, unfortunately, I may need to hold my head down in shame as I let you into one of my secrets…I don’t own an iPhone……(do I hear cries of Booo, shame, get outta here…!).

As I don’t own an iPhone, I cannot show you exactly what it is capable of doing, but hang on a minute, don’t leave the room, please.

I’ve done the next best thing, and that’s to download a similar package to Instagram onto my cellphone, and the results it has produced with some random shots I took just a few minutes ago are not too bad, and very similar to those that Instagram produces.

Here they are for your delight…hope you like them, and if you do, let me know…I may just do some more for you:

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating!
