The Phone Is A Creative Tool

A small tree has lost all of its leaves in Appleton, Wisconsin.

For this assignment, we will use the phone as a creative tool. Ideally, you will use it for photographing, editing and toning the photographs, and then posting the photographs on to your WordPress site. You could then also turn the assignment in via the Canvas Student App.

Pink Light

It stormed again yesterday. After the rain stopped the light turned pink as it was setting. Trying to get my phone to translate the light I saw was not the easiest. This is not the photo I wanted to use, but it was the best one to represent what I saw. The one I wanted to turn out does not always turn out. Photography is an unforgiving medium.

I was being lazy using my phone. My camera was upstairs and I was afraid the light might would be gone if I went to get it. That was my excuse at least. Laziness and excuses are what usually usually stops me from grabbing my “real camera” to make a picture. As the days and weeks build up from the last time I made an intentional photograph, it is easy to just use my phone.

This whole post came about via my phone. I made the picture with Lightroom CC and edited with the same software. I am writing this via the WordPress mobile app. Maybe it is a good thing that I just share some truth about my process here. Does it matter that I created it all with my phone?

More later.
