Starry starry night

Love this picture that I took the other night at my son’s baseball practice.

Would you believe that this was actually taken in the bright late afternoon sun?   With my iPhone?   I love the ease that the iPhone has with capturing those moments that you just can’t say “hold that a minute” while I go and get my professional camera.

Just to give you an idea of what this looked like SOOC (straight out of the camera), here is the before shot.  Pretty ho-hum looking right?

Starry before pic ROLPThis is where the fun comes in – APPS!    Please note that I am in no way getting any kick backs from these companies for mentioned their names or anything, just wanted to pass along some of the fun photo apps that I have come across.    At times, ok scratch that, probably ALL THE TIME, I am photo obsessed.  I see life in photos.  I look at how the light is cascading on a scene and can’t help but play out in my mind how to best capture it.   This is where the fun and ease of the iPhone comes in because I don’t always carry my “big girl camera” with me.

Anyways, here are just a few apps that I play around with for my Instagram photos!
