[Batch 1 : 12-25 June] The first two weeks of my project can be summed up in two words : "struggle" and "experiment". I'm still making it a habit to shoot with my iPhone, and although I'm getting the hang of it, it's always a conscious effort. There are times that I have to remind myself, and there are frustrations when I just forget to shoot lo-fi. Case in point : Day 5, I had a couple's engagement shoot and one of the locations was a graffiti wall. I told myself I'd shoot all that colorful art with my phone, but I totally forgot about it. By the time I remembered, I was on my way home, miles and miles away, so I had to find another scene to shoot, which, you will see, was a rice field I shot in HDR.
I've also been playing with the photo apps I have, and this early I have my regulars and favorites. There are so many variations that they offer in processing, doing it is definitely fun (if not time-consuming). Practice, practice, practice. A lot of trial-and-error. And thus, the first set of my '365 in Lo-Fi' project (click on thumbnails to view each photo in full, together with the caption about the apps I used) :

On to the next ones. I'm getting there. Ciao!
365 in Lo-Fi
For a whole year (365 days), I took a photo with my mobile phone camera and presented them here, in batches. Lower quality as the technology is still improving, just the same phone photography has altered the way people take and look at pictures.
