151/366 Dolly. B&W Wednesday. Dolly is a project on where participants have purchased a "Schleich Standing Sheep" and they will take postcard photos with Dolly in locations all over the world. Toward the end of 2012, the favorite 100 postcard photos will be compiled into a book. People on Mobitog are very creative, so it will be a fun and interesting project. My Dolly wanted her portrait taken before she traveled to any exotic locations. The result was taken with 645 Pro using the 6x9 back and the F4 film. Antiqued look was created in Awesome Camera using several filters and a frame. The writing was created in Phonto. Check out the "Where are Ewe Dolly?" thread on

Chance Answer


150/366 Chance Answer. Week 22 of my 2012-52's theme is chance. This photo is of an executive decision maker. You spin the dial and you take a chance on the answer you get. My question was: "Is Reed a good photographer?" what does this thing know? Photo was taken and processed with Qbro.

Vinnie's Flower


148/366 Vinnie's Flower. I went to a sunflower maze today. It was amazing as you are walking through a field of sunflowers that are 8-10 feet tall.

Lineman on a Foggy Morning

145/366 Lineman on a Foggy Morning. Hipsta Thursday. Today's post is an edit on a Hipstamatic print to show what can be done with a poor photo. I took this shot of a lineman, repairing electric lines, from a garage with Hipstamatic using the Buckhorst lens and Ina 1935 film. Original shot is poor due to lighting condition having extreme contrast. For edited shot, I used PSExpress to adjust exposure, saturation, brightness, contrast, cropped and added warm vintage effect and a border. In PhotoWizard, I did more with exposure and sharpening, along with filters to change the lighting and coloring.

Trois Debutantes


139/366 Trois Debutantes. FFF (Filter Free Friday) I was trying to take filter free picture with the 645 Pro app. I did not quite succeed as I did not realize the film dial needs to go blank and the back dial needs to disappear for it to be filter less. So this shot was taken with the 645 back and FC5 film. These lovely orchids were making their debut at the Wyndham Hotel in Tampa.

Mum's the Word


121/366 Mum's the Word. I am testing out the Camera360 app for a challenge. This beautiful flower photo was taken and edited with that app only. The app shows previews of the various filters while you are taking the shot. It allows you to separately adjust the focus and exposure. There are fun templates that you can place photos within. You may import photos into the app allowing you to apply multiple filters as I have done to create this vintage look. This app is free and I felt it was fairly easy to use and is a keeper.
