When I’m at electronic stores, Best Buy, Fry’s. I look at games, movies, music and new computer hardware. I’m kind of a geek like that. One thing I always look at is cameras. For some reason I’ve always loved to look through a lens.
When I was younger, I remember getting a cheap camera and went through quite a few rolls of film with it. The pictures weren’t that great but I had fun taking them. Thinking of those pictures now, I know how bad they were, but it was something that I liked. I never embraced cameras like I did writing, I’m not sure why. I really like taking pictures, it doesn’t matter what I use to take them.
For our last vacation in San Francisco I used our iPad, which took some really amazing pictures. I am picture app freak, I have more picture apps than I do any other type of app on my phone. When I find a new app for pictures I hope it has a free version, if it doesn’t, I at least hope it’s cheap.
I would love to get a nice camera, but can’t afford one and I like using my iPhone which takes really good pictures. If you use the right app it can take some amazing shots.
I’ve only been using Hipstamatic for a little while, but I love the results. Instagr.am I’ve been using for a long time and I love the app and I have taken some amazing pictures with it, but Hipstamatic is coming up close with some of the possibilities I’ve noticed.

Noir can take some very dramatic and moving pictures, getting everything perfect is the hardest part. Super 8 is based on the movie of the same name and it is like super 8 camera. I have taken some awesome stuff with it of my kids and love it.
iMovie is one of those apps you must have if you take pictures with your phone, iPad. I don’t have a Mac, yet, but this will be one of my first purchases. I love the way everything works together with this app and makes the slideshows work. It is fun to do, but I can spend hours creating picture shows with it.
I wish I had more time, and money to spend on taking pictures. It is one thing I’m hoping to do in the future. I have a lot to do this year, but this is one thing I want to do even if it’s just for me.
Photography is something that I’ve always secretly wanted to do but could never afford. But it is something I really enjoy. I can’t afford the cameras, but my iPhone lets me improvise.
