Inspired by Stephanie Calabrese Roberts’ book “The Art of iPhoneography“, I had the opportunity to practice some iphone photography in Lima, Peru. The architecture and scenery in this decades-old city made the exercise easy! Focusing on using the Lo-Mob, Hipstamatic, and Photosynth apps, here are a few of my favorite places. Above, a panoramic view of the Plaza Mayor, photographed with Photosynth.
The Cathedral and the plaza fountain were shot using Hipstamatic.
Lo-Mob is probably my favorite app, because you shoot with the regular iphone camera, open the camera roll in Lo-Mob, and it applies filters to the image for you to select from. The sidewalk art below has a 60′s square emulsion filter applied, the Church of San Francisco is slide one colder.
Below are two images from Barranco, a district of Lima, with different Lo-Mob filters. The view on the left is 35mm medium format 2, the church filter is vintage instant-black. The Lo-Mob app has 19 filters to choose from, easily previewed on your phone.
