Fall Colors with the iPhone 4S

This shot was made with the Otterbox case on over in Marblehead last week.

Fall colors with the iPhone 4sShooting with the iPhone can be a challenge sometimes. When the light is low the camera still tries to shoot at a low ISO. In this case it was ISO 80. My exposure was therefore still kind of sketchy at 1/25th sec at 2.4

This shot of my backyard was made with the iPhone 4s. It was then put into Lightroom 4 for post processing. This rendering is very close to what I saw and remember. It did not take a lot of tweeking to get it to this point. I did crop out some unwanted items on the right and from the bottom but this is pretty much as I saw it. Most people don't realize that to get really good images out of your phone you will need to take it out of the case that you have it in. I took mine out of the Otterbox case so that the clean lens would have a chance of making a good image. Most folks have their phone in their pocket or purse and the outside can get really dirty and creating unwanted fuzziness in the image. Most iPhone apps do a pretty good job of making the images look better but they tend to overdo it a bit. I use Camera+ which has some neat features to it when it comes to shooting and editing in the camera app.
