Phoneograhpy Challenge: Feel The Burn

I love fire and I love fire images. But trying to take close ups of the beauty of fire is pretty tough and hot with an iPhone, so after a few attempts at flame images (for some really nice fire images see my Fire Series in Just Photos) with my iPhone, which I felt would melt right in the palm of my hand, I concentrated on the aftermath of destruction that a fire leaves in its wake. I discovered that, when studied, that burnt objects have a beauty all their own! I have had fun with the Phoneography Challenge, but I doubt that my phone will ever replace my cameras!

On this one, the heat had my hands a little shaky; but none the less, a bit of photo editing, made it interesting.

I was able to steady my hand and get a cleaner shot. I think I prefer using a long lens for this kind of shot in the future!

I took this image into photoshop to give it an extra something by adding a LAMO feature over what I had done in Camera+

This was shot and edited in Camera+, I love the ethereal look achieved by over saturating.

The same subject, different shot and special effect

The same subject as the third shot, different shot and special effect

This was the same shot at the first one, but I took it into Photoshop to save as a sepia tone. That is the only problem with Camera+, you can' only save a shot one way.

Have a great day, and keep shooting!
