It's hard to believe there once was a time when I couldn't go anywhere without my fancy-pants DSLR camera. I didn't want to miss a thing and in fact, I wouldn't even go for a walk on the beach without it. It was exhausting carrying around this heavy gear and I honestly hated being stopped and asked what I was shooting all the time.
I saw people using their iPhone cameras but it seemed it was for things like a photo of one's Starbuck's drink that morning or what they had for lunch. When I met the Shutter Sisters at Oasis last year I was asked over and over again, "what's your handle on instagram?" I realized I was way behind the times. Not only was I not on instagram, but I never used my iPhone for taking photos.
I recently joined instagram and as I browsed through people's images I was blown away. With all of the apps available, and various lenses you can attach to your phone, I learned that I can still give images my special touch.
These days when I go for my walks on the beach, I still always have a camera, but most of the time it's my little 8 megapixel iPhone and I love it. I stay inconspicuous, even with my zoom lens, and I can even take photos of myself without anyone ever knowing! Ha!
Here's ten iPhone images from a day in La Jolla. On this day, May 10th, the clouds were breathtaking and changed drastically from morning to sunset.
