Mr. iPhone

This past weekend we had the pleasure of having photographer Thomas Hawk in town for the Google+ Denver 1 Year Anniversary Photowalk in downtown Denver.  It’s was able to spend a couple of hours with the group for the walk and I’m glad I was able to join. I always enjoy watching other photographers work. It gives me new ideas on how to look at scenes.  I decided to just put on my 50mm prime for the photo walk.  I think it’s probably my favorite lens these days, probably because I so enjoying the shallow depth of field and what it does for taking pictures of people.

One of the photographers here locally that I learn so much from is Justin Balog of  He always gives me inspiration and creative ideas spawn from watching him work.  I was able to capture him in this back entrance doorway to a restaurant doing what he does best – capture and processes images on his iPhone.  If you have never been to Justin’s site, it’s a great resource for travel and for his famous iPhone tutorial.  He’s also just published a wonderful iBook on iPhone photography called “Big World Little Lens“.
