Sally Ds mobile photography challenge: black and white

I was particularly interested to read Sally’s latest post about preferring to use her iphone as opposed to her trusty old Nikon. I, too, have made the transition from my Canon Eos 450 (with which I was never entirely happy) to my iphone 6+ which I’ve had for just over a year now. I am rarely without it and only use the bulky Canon when we’re on an important trip, when I like to have the security of a second camera just in case ….

I use the Lenka app for my black and white photography. The advantage of this little app is that it takes both a black and white photo and a colour one so that if you’re not happy with the results of the black and white one you can always run the colour one through another app to achieve a black and white image. These are all SOOC (straight out of the camera).

the ephemeral beauty of night-flowering cacti plants. Within half an hour of my taking this shot the flower had already started to wither

the ephemeral beauty of the last persimmons/kaki/sharon fruit in the garden – ephemeral because it’s a question of who gets them – me or the birds. I think the birds are winning ….

All photos were taken with an iphone 6+ using the Camera+ app, and the macro setting for the first two
