Alaska with an iPhone

I went in with an ambitious plan; my 5D would capture amazing images of Alaska that would help advance my career into the outdoor/athletic genre of photography and filmmaking that I am working on breaking into.

And then it hit home; the numerous lenses, batteries, CF cards, importing, editing, exporting, and then uploading was a work flow that took time. After all the shooting I’ve done recently, this trip was mean’t to provide time away from it all to refresh and get ready to rock again. Having my iPhone in my pocket verses a 5DM2 in a pack is more convient and less obtrusive (take a peek at Colin’s killer shoot for more on the less obtrusive topic or Ryan recent post for iPhone amazingness). And with the new Visual Supply Co app (VSCO CAM), things just become beautiful.

I had a friend recently ask what kind of point and shoot they should look into purchasing for travel and leisure shooting when they feel like not pulling out the DSLR, and my response after this trip on will be none. Grab your phone, snap away, edit on the plane and just enjoy the freedom of your trip.

Here’s a couple snaps from our trip to Alaska with an iPhone 4 ::


 

(All images above were shot with the iPhone 4 and edited in VSCO CAM app on the iPhone)

 

  • Laurie - Touched to see you capturing a bit of “my Alaska” through your lens. Could Alaska be capturing YOUR heart as well? Love my home, love you and Kels, and love that you got another taste of the Land of the Midnight Sun! Love the shot of my dad with the bucket and pail…..ReplyCancel

  • abbey - These are killer, Shaun. Sometimes it’s so hard to step back and not bring the big camera … but these might just convince me to do that on my next trip. Really fantastic images! I love that it proves the statement that it’s the photographer, not the camera that make art.ReplyCancel

  • Campfire Scramble - [...] Thank you for your love, kindness, and support over the past month as we’ve meandered to our new resting place here in Colorado. Cheers to the next chapter. * Open fire scramble technique borrowed from “Cooking in the Moment” by Andrea Reusing. * * For more behind the scenes action on our Alaska visit, see here.  [...]ReplyCancel

  • Sarah - Those are really beautiful pictures. I really want to visit Alaska someday. Sometimes it’s fun to just take pictures with my phone, even though it’s not a smartphone.ReplyCancel

  • Karran Driskill - Thanks for sharing your beautiful lives and adventures with us. We love you both with all our hearts. So much love until the next time we can experience more of the same and that Campfire Scramble!!!! Wow! G’maReplyCancel
