All The Beautiful Colours...

Photo taken by me of the docks, late October


  1. Class photo. DId you use some sort of filter? It looks almost vintage, the colours seem kind of drained.

  2. It's taken using an app called FxCamera that includes a polaroid option that gives that lovely effect. I messed around then with the configuration. It's something I've been thinking about a lot recently, the whole photos taken by an app thing - there's lots of apps that can pretty much make anything you take look rather lovely, how much is down to the photographer, and how much is down to the app? Recently I was looking at a friend's photos and they were all taken using the Hipstimatic app for iPhone so he said he couldn't take much credit for them. I then came across this article which I found very interesting:

    I have to say I agree with him - I think even just composition alone has a huge influence on whether a not a photo is successful, never mind all the other fundamentals. If the composition's not right, the greatest app in the world won't take it from being a nice photo to an outstanding photo. What are your thoughts?
