iPhone to Da Max

This amazing iPhone photo was a collaborative effort between photographer Rikki Cooke and Brett James. Brett emailed the original photo of "Thailer sleeping in blind" to Rik, who then proceeded to process it. He explains below:

"Shot on iphone and processed from email, then Topaz , Nik's filters, Silver effects, Sharpener, Noiseware and printed 15x20. All from a phone? Loved Sierra work!"

Who says you can't print 'em big from the iPhone?

A Bouquet of iPhone Apps

On my Menopause Goddess Blog, I've written about my midlife attention span shortening. I find myself flitting from thought to thought, project to project, like a butterfly flits from flower to flower.

I think iPhone apps actually encourage this trait - by offering so many delightful options and possibilities that I just can't help myself. Given that, here is my latest "flitting" in iPhone photography.

This shot of a butterfly on a daisy was taken across the street in my neighbor's yard. No manipulation yet.

Next I flitted to Photoforge to "paint" with my finger. I then added the Color Comic filter from an app called Cinema FX.

After saving the painted image, I went into Cinema FX again and added the a filter called Surveillance Cam. Interesting.

Finally, I added a filter called Japanese Memory, also in the Cinema FX app. I probably like the painted image best, but they all work for me.

The Digital Dude (my husband Dewitt Jones) and I are heading up to the High Sierra and White Mountains for the week - hope to have lots of fun, new images upon our return.

Sweet Dream Baby - An iPhone "Portait"

My friend Jon Leland created this piece of art on his iPhone of actress Marissa Ingrasci. Her father came up with the title "Sweet Dream Baby". Jon used the Layers app, which I just downloaded. Can't wait to play with it! He says it is like digital fingerpainting on a photo on his iPhone and "good fun."
