Unsure what camera to buy when you want spontaneity so you can take the pictures that just seem to pop up when you least expect them “These are usually the most interesting and unusual” Have you been looking at the Nikons, Canons etc. How much do you want to spend ? and how can you carry one of the larger DSLRs with you wherever you go. Your walking down the street or driving somewhere, then right out of the blue a picture moment appears and your DSLR needs to be set up quickly (trust me, if you own a DSLR you know that there is no such thing as quickly).… Darn it you missed the moment and you add it to the list of lost pictures you could have got, but didn’t..

My chosen tool of choice believe it or not is the IPhone?

Yes, the regular old IPhone can take startling pictures and there isn’t anything to set up, just point and shoot… Well! there is a little more to it than that but you get the idea.

The one word that you should keep in mind with any picture you take is “Composition” It governs everything, especially the end results. Yes,your right its just a picture but by adding the correct composition to the equation your pictures will be way more interesting and vibrant. The IPhone will take the most amazing pictures in any light situation and by adding a simple photo effect to enhance the quality the results are pretty spectacular.

Here are a couple of pictures I took of local architecture in full sunlight. Just by standing in the right place and adjusting the angle, I captured the essence of the moment and turned it into a piece of art.

The word SELFIE has become the most widely used word in the English language and what better tool to use than a cell phone.. Indeed the cell phone started the SELFIE craze, so i’m interested in peoples artistic SELFIES and as many creative selfies as possible.

Post your SELIES and lets see who gets the best SELFIE award..
