When it comes to cell phone photography there seems to be 2 types of people. You either love it or just don’t get it. I certainly fall into the “love it” category. The other day I was listening to an episode of The Grid on Kelby TV and heard a quote attributed to Jay Maisel. It was something to the effect of “if you want to be a better photographer, you have to take pictures every day”. That might not be the exact quote, but it certainly brings home the point I want to make. The iPhone lets me take pictures almost every day! That is something that is just not possible with my DSLR.
In the shot above I was driving down route 7 in Tysons Corner and the road was detoured under the new construction for the Metro. Traffic came to a stop and with iPhone in hand I got this shot of the massive horizontal crane they are using to construct the above ground sections. After capturing the picture I later finished it with an app called Painteresque.
