IPhone Diaries #552: Snapseed

When it comes to the use of apps, I try to keep it simple, using apps that allow me to do what I want to do (a la Photoshop) instead of an app imposing its filters on me (I've never used Instagram). Most apps do the same things quite well but for a long time, the only two apps I've used were Photoshop Express and Be Funky. Everything and anything that I wanted to do, I could perform with these two. 
Enter Snapseed. I like it overall but its implementation of their framing device is particularly effective.
BTW, all three apps are FREE.

LX3 Diaries #548: (digital) Pinhole Photography

Pinhole photographs are produced by glassless lenses (basically a pinhole and a light-tight box), long exposures, and guesswork. The images, which exhibit  unsharp details, soft-to-blurry corners, and extreme vignetting are dreamy and more atmospheric than literal, the province of dreams and foggy memories. Taken behind the Westminster Public Library (Guelph). Jan 26th.

Intuitively the way to go...

Stills and Video combo in Photo(video)journalism.
The times, they are a'changin.
It can also make for a very rough day...
I gave up on solo shooting wedding videos,
Unless I lower clients' expectations.
As in life,
It's all about managing expectations.
