LOL – it’s all the rage!

These new fancy phones everybody has – actually have amazing cameras in them. So lot’s of clever and creative people are using them more and more to capture amazing images – these walks are all about human interaction, getting to know people in your community with like minded interests etc…in this case Photography. Often the aim is to practice and improve one’s own photography skills.

Also…despite everybody bagging out Google+ for being late to the social network craze – they have actually managed to entice most of the worlds photographers to the network – and it is producing some amazing collaborations and connections – see http://plusonecollection.com/

Nope – quite the opposite actually. Some fantastic new development in Canberra in recent years – we will be getting off the well worn tourist paths, that’s for sure. I thought that way to until recently – then I got of my backside and started exploring. I’m still finding amazing pictures everywhere I look :-)

I gave googleplus a look back when it first came out. I liked several of the features, only really drawback being that no one else I know was on it. A little while ago I tried logging in and couldn’t work out how the damn thing worked any more. :(

I don’t know why anyone would want to give that terrible TV show free content.

Practicing and improving your photography skills by using a smart phone is like improving your driving skills by playing video games.

Wow – A chance to put quality content onto Channel 7’s weekend Sunrise – and put Canberra onto the map…
If we show the beauty of this place without showing the same old, same old, tourist traps, we will do our city a service…
plus, Canberra at 7am is awesome – hope it’s foggy for some nice ambience

“Practicing and improving your photography skills by using a smart phone is like improving your driving skills by playing video games.”

Seeing (pun intended) as composition and light are pretty important elements of a good photograph, a smart phone does make a good tool for improving your photographic skills.

A lot of cameras in smart phones these days have many more options/ functions to a Polaroid SX-70 and the SX-70 was very capable of creating fabulous photographs.

Anyway, the camera is secondary to the person holding the camera. An expensive camera doesn’t = good results, a good photographer = good results.

Channel 7 is affiliated with Yahoo, which is a rival to Google.

I smell something fishy here…

Well you’d think 7 would be looking for a better online partner, and it’s not like google has a house channel.

Great pic Mollman. And a worthwhile exercise, IMHO – to capture the Canberra of today for those in the future. This place is changing so much on a daily basis, the more pix we have of Canberra today the better.

Keijidosha – that’s changing rapidly – lot’s of people suddenly have decent camera’s without even really realsing it – a new photographic genre is forming iPhoneography – I challenge you to tell the difference between a DLSR/SLR photography and one taken by an iPhone – take a look http://www.flickr.com/groups/iphoneography/ & http://www.iphoneography.com/
