I was the unhappy recipient of an iPhone 6+ last December. I'll spare you the details but to make a long story short… We switched carriers, they only had 3 phones in stock none of which was a regular 6 and if I waited until January I would miss out on $350 in rebates. And I couldn't wait any longer because my phone was giving me too many problems. I would just have to get used to NOT being able to carry it in my jeans back pocket and I would have to get used to texting with 2 hands and maybe shooting photos with two hands.
After a short time I decided I really LOVED it and would have a hard time going back to a smaller phone.
This is my editorial assignment for The Studio Online. I had done this previously but with a new phone comes different accessories.
1. iPhone 6+. love love love!
2. Apple Earbuds
3. Muku Shutter Release
4. Sensu Brush Stylus
5. Connector for camera to iPad or iPhone
6. Macro Lens
7. Jobi Tripod
Did you know that you can use the volume bottom on your earbuds as a shutter release when connected to your phone?
I love my Muku remote Shutter Release.
Mostly I use my Sensu when masking or painting on the iPad.
I connect my big girl camera to my iPad if there are shots I want to edit on it or just view in the field.
I had to give up my Olloclip lens kit because it does't fit the 6. In fact if you are interested it's for sale. This little macro band will have to do for now.
This tripod fits the big phone but I'm rating it only a 5.
The best news I've received this month was that two of my mobile edits made honorable mention in the 2014 MPA (Mobile Photography Awards).
In the Still Life category…
In the Macro & Detail category….
What was interesting to me was that at the last moment I decided to add both of these. They were not at the top of 'my' list. Which just says we never know what some else's opinion will be. But I will stay true to my heart when it comes to the spring competitions coming up locally.
I'm linking up with Barb today for App Happy Wednesday. If you want to check out my tutorial on Mobile Art Monday this week, it's on using the PicsArt app.
