When I finished editing the pics on my phone I could not resist importing them onto my computer to view them on my 19" monitor; after all I only ever edited photos on my PC and I needed to check my very first iPhone pics large. I was very happy with the quality, (the resolution is only slightly lower than that of DSLR images), but I found my beginner iPhone processing a bit "heavy handed"; I decided to give each image a tiny tweak in the Lightroom or Photoshop Elements to take the edge off their look. Some of the images may still look overprocessed, but I can live with that for now.
I must say I am so smitten with some of iPhone images out there, so bowled over by the idea of a camera that is always with you without carrying anything other than your phone and so intrigued and drawn to countless very attractive editing apps that I have decided to put away my DSLR for the time being and just take photos with the iPhone until I feel I've mustered iPhone photography. My only concern is that after having used an 18mm-200mm zoom lens as the main lens I may find the absence of optical zoom on iPhone a bit restricting. However, I also believe I can get used to that soon, or maybe not even miss the zoom as I see iPhoneography and DSLR photography as different genres of photography.
I thought the next step for me would naturally be to set up an Instagram account. Since it would mean more time spent on internet (and I'm trying to cut down on it) I have thought long and hard about it, and after a lot of hesitation I have come to a final conclusion that, odd as it may sound to some, Instagram is not the right photo sharing platform for me. So, apart from my blog, I shall continue to share my photos on Facebook and Flickr only.
