What’s the Best Camera?

Answer: The one you have on you.  For most of us, that’s our mobile phone.  Sure, there are limitations, but it’s still possible to get some good shots!   

“Jolene’s Life in Focus” actually started as an experiment in mobile phone art early in 2010.  Long before I ever owned a DSLR, I had my Motorola Droid.  So, I decided to launch a simple, 5 megapixel project in creativity.  Using only apps available on the Android market, these pictures were taken and edited right in the palm of my hand!  It really taught me a lot about lighting and composition, believe it or not.  This is a collection of some of my favorite shots during that time period. 

When you have no fancy lenses available, what can you create?

  1. Composition was and is definately no problem for you! Beautiful then and now.

  2. A very interesting project! And something I’ve thought for a long time now – it’s NOT all about the camera. We have a friend who is into amateur photography, who for years took brilliant shots with a tiny little compact camera. Like you, he just has a very good eye for composition. Luckily, I’ve enlisted him as one of my “roving photographers/reporters”.

    Those are all really nice photos. You do wonderfully composing the shot, which really makes or breaks a photo no matter what kind of camera took it!

    Great shots – someone with a photographer’s eye can get great results with any equipment.

    1. Thanks, Mike – although having that fancy D7000 of your probably doesn’t hurt (I’m just a tad jealous) 🙂

    I really like the composition and the creativity behind each shot. Often times, I think we do our best work when we are limited with choices because it forces you to think outside of the box. These are great photos Jolene. 🙂

    1. I agree, Emily. Limitations force us to think creatively. 🙂

  6. You are right, it’s the camera you have with you and these are all great photos. You have a great photographic eye!

    1. I appreciate that, Martina. 🙂 I think you have a great photographic eye as well!

    1. Thank you! It was a fun project!
