A while ago I spent the day at my brothers place to hang with him and his little girl. With that also cames the wide selection of toys and candy to play with. So while my brother was cleaning up and my niece watched an animated film, I decided to borrow her little bunny friend and this bowl of M&M’s for an impromptu photo shoot. I have the Sony a6000 with me along with the 20mm f/2.8 prime lens so I was able to get in pretty close for this one. I transferred the image to my phone and made some minor color corrections in Snapseed and finished it off with a nice warm look using the vscocam app. It turned out nicely so I thought I’d share it here now. I actually originally shared this image over on Instagram on the day that I shot it. I’ve spoken before about processing photos on the go, and this was one of the resulting images of processing on the go right from my phone. I used to bring my iPad Mini with me for just such a thing, but with the iPhone screens being a little bigger these days, I’ve been finding that it’s a good enough size for me to work with. So my little walk around kit has just become that much lighter.
Typically when I go around with my lightweight kit, I leave the tablet at home. That being said, if I’m in the mood to process on the go, I try to select images that will be on the easier side to process. Mainly because if I have a landscape image I’m looking to work on, I’d prefer to at least wait until I have my tablet or laptop in front of me to avoid missing out on some smaller details in the image. Now if I do bring my tablet with me, then there’s really no limit on what images I might try to process on the go. Although it’s just an iPad Mini, it’s still a bigger screen that I feel more comfortable with in terms of processing a more detail intense photograph. I’ve been meaning to create a gear page here on my site which details my different kits and what I take with me for whatever shoot or trip. I’ve just been preoccupied with writing my next book, but perhaps now that I’m typing about my gear now I’ll remember to get to that soon. He he.
