Yellow through the lens of a Phone

 Last spring I fell in love with a YELLOW cotton jacket.
Yellow has always been a favorite color, just rather in the background....behind PINK.
These past few weeks I have been taking a Creative iPhoneography Course with Kate England of Marmalade Moon
(her website is full of great photography, tutorials, and tips)
Although "Place" was the subject of an assignment, I decided to interpret my photos with yellow foremost in my mind.

 I will be sharing more and more of this fascinating peek at the world through a teeny tiny lens on a phone; (sigh) bypassing lengthy editing in Photoshop, rather using all sorts of fun apps.

The following photograph was shot above our glass topped collections table with a vase of YELLOW Sunflowers.  

We went to the Scottish Highland Games this summer....the Fresh Lemonade stand caught my eye!  It was standing there just waiting for its portrait to be taken!!!

Two other  choices of processing.....with just a hint of yellow.

I fully apologize for not listing the apps used. I have misplaced my notes.  Still trying to work out a good system for keeping track of my app-steps.  I would love to  duplicate certain looks, but without notes it isn't so....anyone have some good ideas to share in the comments section?

I do recall using Pixlr for all of them....then scooting off from there.

Dewitt Jones is a world renown photographer, adventurer, writer, author, and celebrator of LIFE. I recently connected to his website. He is welcoming with open arms the world of i Phoneography, after (and still) a prolific career as a photographer.  His book iPhone Art in My Life: Volume One is truly inspirational. 
It is comprised of GORGEOUS photos, with inspirational thoughts underscoring the picture.  At the back of the book he goes through the apps that he processes with.
I downloaded onto iPad/Kindle app.  But almost wish I had the actual book in my hands.  
His website is a bit of work to go through, but eventually you can come to his blog.

I was totally inspired by this, Celebrate Life.

More about his philosophy and inspiration in another post. 
I plan on joining him on this CELEBRATION of LIFE.

Heart Thought: Practice the Art of the Possible.   And YES, it is possible I will wear my sunny yellow jacket in the winter!!! smiles
