Camera Phone Fun

October 25, 2012

I love my camera.  My REAL camera.

My parents gave it to me as a Christmas gift in December, 2009 (right after I started blogging!), and since then, it’s recorded a lot of pretty important moments:

But.

Lately—I’m LOVING my i-phone camera.  I’m finding that it’s so much easier to carry around a tiny little phone, as opposed to lugging a giant DSLR camera (say it with me now: DUH!!!). 

And you know what I’m discovering?

That tiny little phone takes some pretty dang good pictures.  Especially with some of the apps that are out there to help you along a little bit.  Lately, I’ve been loving Camera+ (an editing app):

…and Lumie:

(an app that adds glitter and bubbles and stars to pictures…what’s not to love?). 

Yesterday, I snapped this photo on my way to yoga:

I used my phone throughout the rest of the evening to take pictures of dinner:

…and our after-dinner playtime:

…and bathtime (sparkles courtesy of Lumie):

…and finally, bed:

Or, as Lila likes to think of it, “bed”:

And then, it was finally bed-time for us too, after one final belly-rub:

How can you resist?

Do you have any camera phone apps that you love?  I also use pic-stitch, an app that creates collages like this:

…and aviary, an app that lets you put stickers on photos, so that I can amuse myself by creating (and texting family members) photos like this:

Obviously, I’m easily amused.  These pictures had me cracking up for days.

Ciao!

    Hey! Beautiful photographs! I’m starting to (try to) get more into taking pictures and have been taking a class with a local photographer–also a mom–very good mojo there, for me. I just got a good Canon. But then I’ve also been thinking I should upgrade to an iphone. I think you just gave me my answer. Thanks Anna Lowe!

    What incredible pictures! I don’t use my phone as much as I should for pics. I need to look at those apps now though. I need to make sparkly pictures of the boys!

    I just got my iPhone 2 weeks ago and I’m already attached to the damn thing! I am 100% obsessed with Instagram, off to download Pic Stitch right now!
