1st August - Necessity is the mother of invention
 
It’s said that ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’ well this month I’m challenging myself to use my phone to take the pictures, not because I’ve fallen out with my ‘big’ camera but I’m away from my laptop for a while so the normal workflow is rather disrupted. So this month I’m only going to publish images taken on my handheld phone and processed using Lightroom Mobile.
 
Doing this will take away some of my usual ways of working. Gone will be the tripod, the filters and anything other than a wide lens. In will come a more flexible way of working and finding perspectives. I won’t be wondering about Lightroom backups for a while either. I often use the iphone as a compositional tool so I’m looking forward to seeing how it will change the way I work. I’m still making images on my big camera just not processing them straightaway.
 
I’m looking forward to how this approach will remove constraints on my compositions. This is the first, I don’t think I would have noticed the symmetry of the masts and reflections just on the big camera - and got so low!
