favorite things winter escapes & photography toys
Chris and I escaped Brooklyn for Buttermilk Falls Inn in the Hudson Valley this weekend to visit wineries, try new restaurants (A Tavola, an Italian newcomer in New Paltz, was our favorite), take naps, see deer in nature and let Jack off leash so he could romp around in the snow.
I took the above pic using Snapseed on my new iPhone 5. Snapseed allows for detailed photo editing, which, though it takes longer to do, I prefer to preset filters à la Instagram.
When I first began taking pictures with a phone, I had an iPhone 4 and relied almost exclusively on the Camera+ app to touch up pics. That was three years ago. Camera lens on phones have come a long way since then as have photo editing apps. I prefer Snapseed now because it lets you edit parts of a photo, not just the whole. Plus, it’s free, surprisingly.
The three photos above were taken with my trusty Olympus E-PM1 which I recommend to anyone looking for an in-between camera—one that’s smaller than a DSLR but still offers manual control if you know what you’re doing (which I don’t always, so I appreciate reliable auto settings).
This weekend I finally got the chance to unbox and play with the refurbished Polaroid camera I received as a gift from Wantful! At 24 dollars for each eight-photo film cartridge, it’s gonna be an expensive hobby. Still, I love it. No photography app or gadget can replace that rush you get knowing you have limited film to shoot with, motivating you to make every shot count.
