My iPhone Photography Beginning - September 2010 iPhone 4s

Unedited ProHDR Image from 2010 
My AH HA moment

I have been going through several old hard drives looking for images to put on Dropbox so I can access all my iPhone photos in one place, when I came across this photo. iPhone 4s - Sept 2010


The scene:
I am in New Hampshire at a photo workshop with my Nikon camera when John Barclay informs me of an app called ProHDR that I must install on my iPhone. Ok I think, I'll give it a try. Then a fellow student Dan let's me borrow his iPhone holder for a tripod. (crazy looking thing).
As you see by the photo it is a gorgeous day. I set up my iPhone Camera next to the shore of this river, opened the app ProHDR, tapped the button, watched the screen saying 'calculating, hold still' and then a few seconds later this incredible HDR processed image appears on my screen.
For the next several months (embarrassing to think back on sometimes) I was a crazy girl, thrusting the iPhone in anyone's face that was nearby to show them my latest photo and exclaim 'WOW, look at this, amazing, it was taken with an iPhone, can you believe it?" I was hooked and became know as the App Queen as I absorbed everything iPhone Photography.
What a great journey it has been. 
I must also mention Harry Sandler as he is my gracious mentor and friend that guides me to learn so much about photography.

There are many others that influence and inspire - a few include: Lynette Sheppard, Karen Messick, Dewitt Jones, Laura Peischl, Bobbi McMurry, Helen Breznik, Dan Burkholder
