In between

I finally installed the fun iphone camera app called 6x6. I had heard about it from xolager, but took months to get it as my iphoneography has taken a major backseat to film photography. It is especially helpful for practicing the Hasselblad. Large format cameras are framed with upside down images in the ground glass. Medium format cameras have left and right swapped often. 6x6 can emulate this, consistent with the waist-level viewfinder of the Hasselblad. The big difference is that on the iphone, the lens is pointed away 180° from the viewfinder, whereas, a medium format camera is pointed 90° away. This app is different from the Hipstamatic, favoring a portrait orientation to the phone. There is some vignetting in this orientation while the iphone is in the Owle Bubo. This is a function of using 52mm filters, rather than the Owle Bubo itself. Here, the black and white option in 6x6, and a Red #25 filter.

It is a fun camera app, and brings to my 3g a shutter using the (Volume up) button. It sort of inspired a two-frame square mosaic from the infrared dslr:

This is the day use area at Humbug Mountain state park along Brush Creek.

I like long exposures with the infrared camera.

It rained substantially for a few days in a row. On Saturday it was clear and beautiful. I checked out the thrift stores, but left with only photographs. I was impressed that back near the cameras, the staff was playing Buddy Guy. The Owle Bubo allows for very close focusing. That’s a full size Bob Dylan vinyl LP behind the CD case.

There were a lot of cameras like this one, a Konica with a 38mm, f/2.8 autofocus lens. It takes AA batteries and probably decent photos.

I went on Hipstamatic spree on this day. Sometimes I do that.

The Owle Bubo has a macro lens that I rarely use. This is a shirt.

I have been seeing that my 3g iphone has a characteristic shift in the blue channel. Putting the yellow filter in front renders interesting colors that are more like reality.
