Street Photography

I joined a West London Meetup Photography group.  They had arranged a “crowd photography” afternoon, meeting up at the National Portrait Gallery.  I was the only one with an iphone lol!  I have never taken any street photography so was kind of nervous and scared!  I decided to take photos with Hipstamatic – Matty ALN Lens and BlacKeys film.  The weather was lovely and the Southbank in London full of people.  There is an area for Skateboarders and BMXers so spent some time taking photos there.
I joined a Flickr group called Shoot the Street and posted my photos.  I was so chuffed to be featured as Photo of the Day on 28th September, with this photo!

Apps Uncovered from www.iphoneographycentral.com also has a Flickr group and on a Friday Nicki choosed 12 images to be featured in Apps Uncovered.  I took this photo on the Tube going into London to the Meetup – couldn’t resist taking the photo of these two women sitting opposite me!  They were featured in Apps Uncovered on 30th September
And on 14th October another photo of the day was featured too.  This one I took walking in the Southbank.
Went to an Instragram Meetup in London – where first stop was a small talk at the Apple Store in Covent Garden.  Took this photo going down the stairs and was really happy that this one too got featured in Apps Uncovered on 28th October!
I really like this Hipsta combination – wonderful effects and frame!

Where to Start!

Oh boy its been over 2 months since I blogged and I am loving iphoneography more and more every day!  Not to mention being included in several amazing Facebook pages and making so many new friends!  My style keeps changing and I love experimenting with apps, both in taking photos and editing them!
I belong to an amazing iphoneography community Mobitog – it started small and is run by the amazing Roger and Matt – both in the UK.  It is such a lovely community, several different types of weekly challenges and everyone extremely friendly and helpful!  If you are into iphoneography or starting up, definitely come join us.
I am so chuffed that so many of my images have been featured in different places!
Four have been in Pixels with Leshon being The Daily Pic on 30 October

There is a lovely little carousel in the Southbank in London and I was there with Rinkey and Jim a few weeks ago.  Took photo with Hipstamatic and processed it with PhotoToaster.
From the Other Side of the River :

I cycled to Kew Gardens one Sunday afternoon and to get to Kew I cross to the other side of the river.  On my way back the light was amazing and the view in the photo is of Old Isleworth (couple minutes walk from my flat).  Took photo with ClassicPan and processed it with AutoPainter, AutoPainterII and blended them all in Iris.
Summer Times was also taken with ClassicPan and processed with both AutoPainters and Iris.  Took this photo from Richmond Bridge – such a beautiful view.

Royal Doorway :

Went to Ham House a few weeks ago when I had a day off!  It’s beautiful!  Can’t believe I had never been considering it just up the road from Richmond!  Took photo with Hipstamatic and processed it with PhotoToaster.
