These were taken in Seattle, WA about three years ago. I believe this was with the iPhone 4. No editing done.









After I showed these photos to my father-in-law he dumped his compact snap-n-shoot camera for an iPhone :P

I'm very much against Instagram or digital filters; a photo should show what the eye sees, in my opinion.
With that said, here's an oldie from 2010 on an iPhone 4.
Developed in Lightroom, minimal edits.

Sorry but, I think your statement is just silly. Art is art and a photo can be anything that you want it to be. Where is the rule book that says "a photo should show what the eyes see"? Photographers have been manipulating images in the darkroom since the beginning.

I too am sometimes a purist with my film photography; I tend to not do any post-processing, but the wonderfulness of the iPhone is the amount of creativity you can have with all of the apps available. It's almost a whole new art form in itself thanks to exhibitions like P1xels At An Exhibition (of which my iPhone photography has been exhibited in galleries on several different occasions thanks to them.)

And with THAT being said, here is both my most manipulated image, shot with the iPhone 4S (using the 645 PRO, Snapseed, Photoforge2 and Color Lake apps) -



And a more traditional (minimal edits) studio shot, also with the iPhone 4S -



... in other words, again, and in my humble opinion, a photo can be whatever you want it to be!

I'm sorry if my saying turned out to be anti-edit, which was unintentional. xD
Art is whatever you want it to be, yes. But I'm just against digital "creative" filters which obscures the creativity behind what would otherwise be a good photo.
Now that sounds silly. Putting a filter to make your photo look like what you want it to look like, isn't that what art is supposed to be about?
Then ask yourself this: is it the photo that you want to look good, or the filter that you apply to it? Is it the filter which is art, or the photo?
The filter is not our creation; it's of the good people at Instagram et al who makes them for us to use. So if the filter is the main subject of the art, is it your art or theirs?
It's fine as long as you achieve "that look" which the filters help you reach, but the fact that these automated processes often replace the art which it is applied to seems counterintuitive to me. As a photo purist I don't edit my photos either but I love it when it is done right and hate it when overdone to the point of no return...
I love the ripple effect you've done on that photo. It's not something we'd be able to do easily in Photoshop or whatnot; that's the great part about mobile photography, as you mentioned the ease of use and availability of such effects help reach creative goals, and I'm all for that. But it's easy to cross the line between original pieces and hackneyed effects.

But I do emphasize, anything can be art. A box of cigarettes was displayed in Tate Modern once. To anyone it would be a simple box of cigarettes. But behind a glass, isolated from the trash can, the little cardboard enclosure becomes something symbolic. For the people who still consider it rubbish, each to his own.

Also most of the photos here are superb.

Philosophy of art is a can of worms, innit

Been shooting primarily with my 4S the past year. Here are Some of the shots I got from 2012. The HDR feature helps a lot when you need that extra dynamic range and you know when you activate it. It has made shots for me that would be otherwise be unusable presentable.

Thumb resize.

And a few other older ones...

All photos in these cases were shot with the iPhone 4 using the Hipstamatic app.
Any tips of finding abandoned locations? I want to start finding these sorts of places for photography and video.

Anyway back on topic here is one of my shots.



If anyone is on Instagram my username is the same.

Taken tonight on a walk at the local estuary. These two shots are taken with the stock camera app and literally seconds apart and straight out of my iPhone 4, no fiddling at all, just shrunk in PS. The red was achieved by focusing on a particular part of the cloud.

Paper Aeroplanes

This is one of my favorite "surreal" photos that I've done; shot and edited on the iPhone 4S using the Jag.gr 645 PRO, Snapseed, Image Blender, Touch Retouch and Color Lake apps. And yes, those are real paper airplanes that I made and put on light stands to photograph...
