I do a lot of complaining about my iPhone’s photo quality. Now, I recognize that the iPhone is a wonderful piece of technology, and I am thrilled at being able to tweet the random things I see on the road from the road (though not while driving, obviously).
However (and a big however), the iPhone is not intended to be a fine photography tool. Its photos are small, grainy and blurry, qualities only marginally improved by the use of the Hipstamatic app (though never when photographing food, because Hipstamatic filters will inevitably make your food look either a. alien, b. ancient, or maybe c. ancient and alien). It has been mostly decent. It has served its purpose. I will likely use it again for tweeting on the fly. I mean, obviously my thoughts on the service at my local coffeeshop cannot wait until later, right?
Anyway. I have remedied this situation. Today, I became the proud owner of a shiny new camera! Finally! Amazing new photos! Detail! Color! No greenish tint!
Yay! Eventually I’ll have more interesting things to take photos of. I have been learning many new skills. Tomorrow morning, when the light is better, I’ll photograph some of my new skills. Like blackwork and bobbin lace and supported drop spindle.
But for now, here are the cats, photographed in the only manner I know that ensures they hold still:
Johnny Cat looks as though he’s involved in something horrific, which to his little cat brain may actually be the case.
WH is totally unapologetic, as he should be.
