Before Camera Phones

What did we do before camera phones?
How did we survive?
I remember my first camera phone, a Motorola v400. I thought that was the bomb. It took ok pictures. But it took a digital snap shot. You had an instant image that could be sent almost anywhere on the planet. Before that, you had to transfer everything to your computer and then you could send it. How ancient is that.
Now, we can shoot in almost any environment. Any condition. As long as you have a cell signal, you can beam it to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, or where ever you display your work. You can even modify the print via an Apple iPhone/iPad photography app. If you’re old like me, this is amazing. It’s amazing to be able to do this on the fly when you’re out and about.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I love this new photography technology.
What was your first camera phone?

Take care,

My Super Moon Photo

The Super Moon.

Last Saturday we, our planet, got to experience THE SUPER MOON. The astrological time when the moon is brighter and larger.  I tried to head out to get some photos with the Nikon DSLR.  I wasn’t moved.  I snapped this one with my point and shoot as I walked into the house after going to see a show. I drove around for almost an hour looking for a place to shoot the moon.  That happens sometimes, head out to make some portraits and you come back with nothing.
