I took this shot this weekend while working Robert Daltrey performing at a venue in Salina, KS. His drummer has some great blue LED's lighting his drum kit that I just had to try shooting with my new iPhone 4 camera. I didn't really do anything other than snap the shot and use iPhoto to resize based on your contest rules.
Attached is a picture that I took using my Blackberry Curve 8900. As you can sort of make out, it is a photograph of my pug, Dudley. Sometimes,when he gets excited or is in a playful mood, he "gets low" and runs around our yard. Thanks to the slow-ish shutter on my Curve, it had the effect of changing the shape of my dog without creating speed lines that usually coincide with slow shutters.
Shot on our neighbor's pear tree because I was doing some photography for a barbecue party, then, I remembered the cellphone photography contest here in Giz. It didn't focus where I wanted it to be, but it looked nice. Yes, it was a barbecue party, but it rained (and is still raining, kinda), which explains the water drops on the pear and leaves.
Shot using the Xperia X1. Used the touch focus, and portrait mode.
No subversion of the medium is going on here, this is just a photo. But what I love about this photo is the story of time. The rain-dimpled sand tells of a rainstorm, heavy enough to flood the ground and coat the lower portion of the orange with sand, but continuing softly to leave its mark after the flood. The orange has not not been off the tree long - unlike the one that decays behind it - and yet it has experienced much on the ground. Perhaps it was this storm that took it from the tree in the first place. And now, it rests on the sand, awaiting some small creature and even smaller bacteria to devour it.

Taken with my dad's iPhone 4 of a potted plant on my back porch. Tapped to focused on the flower with the clump of pollen. Loving how the iPhone 4 exaggerates the reds and yellows.
No apps used to manipulate the photo
No specific technique, point and shoot
I decided that today was the perfect day to test out my new iPhone 4's photo-taking ability. I chose to take pictures of all of the blooming summer flowers in my yard. I had just watered the majority of the flowers and was taking shots of the wet flowers.

I was bored playing with my Rubik's cube the other day and I thought it would be cool to take a blurry picture of it spinning around on my desk. I don't really know why I thought of doing that but I think the picture came out pretty cool. I just held my phone in one hand and spun the cube around really fast with the other and took a picture at the same time. I cropped the picture using the phone's cropping tool.
As part of my "things to do today" I included taking a shot for this challenge.I live on Roosevelt Isnad in NYC, its an island that sits in the middle of the East River between Manhattan and Queens. It s avery picturesque place as you might imagine but one of the things I love about it is the proximity to the 59th st Bridge.
I snapped this little gem during halftime of the USA v. Ghana World Cup Match Sat. afternoon. I was in the only bar on the island watching the game with a few dozen locals and stepped out for a bit. That pic is what was staring me in the face.

Shrunk to 800 pixels on a PC, but no other post-processing.

Chilling in the backyard. Shot with Nexus One. Used Gimp to size down
to 800px wide—no cropping or any funny business.
I took this picture with my Motorola Droid using the paid program called vignette. Using only a Toy Camera effect. Austin Gohn told me that it was my turn to finally take part in the contest after almost a year of following the contest. As I received the message on facebook that it was my turn, I quickly rolled down my window and took as many picture of the Illinois skyline as I could.
This is my first submission to the shooting challenge. I hope you like it.
I call this "Spooky Door". The shot was taken with my iPhone 3G's basic camera app while I was hiking the Lewis Falls trail on Skyline Drive in Virginia yesterday afternoon. This door was in the middle of the woods just off the fire road that made the beginning of the trail. My best friend and I weren't sure exactly what it was as it was just stuck in the side of the hill with no signs or anything. It's spooky because of the strange humming noise coming from inside.
Here is my entry. It was larger than 800 pix wide, so I sent a full rez version.
This was after a rainstorm passed over the heliport in Creole, Louisiana. I took 14 pictures with my iPhone 3G and stiched them together with Autostitch. It was all done in-phone, with nothing but renaming and cutting the thumbnail down to 800 pix on a computer.
photo was taken at lands end in san francisco with iPhone 2g. i used snapture app's black and white image mode and then transferred image to camerabag app to apply holga preset. keep up the good work.
One day I was outside with my baby nephew and he wanted to go in an inflatable pool so he could swim. Unfortunately, he was too afraid of the bugs and he wouldn't get in the water. So, I decided to light a citronella lamp so the bugs would stay away. Suddenly, BAM! I thought of the idea to practice with my manual focus to try and capture the moving flame as best as I could. And voila, I got it!
I used my HTC Evo to capture this photo. The technique that I used was the use of manual focus versus autofocus to capture the photo.
For this shot I used my LG Env 2 (black color). This phone lacks any real editing tools, so I just shot the picture as a negative to add some type of effect to it. My brother and I were talking about this contest and he convinced me to join in on the photographic fun, and I was thinking of neat things around my house I could snap a picture of. I decided on this star light because I am obsessed with stars. I took the picture from a few angles, but decided I enjoyed this one the most since it shows the actual star light as well as the reflection it casts on the wall.

I actually use my cellphone camera a lot...kind of like an idea journal; I snap stuff that I go back later and
capture with the dslr.
HTC Evo, No apps used except to resize for submission.
ISO- 100, everything else was left on Auto.
I was walking along the road and saw the river and hotels along the beach through the opening, thought it would make a good Depth of Field shot.

The picture is just as it looked, no apps used. I thought the horizon looked incredible with the road and trees meeting the sky like so and was glad to be able to capture it with my Pre.
No post or app manipulation
Shot wide (no digital zoom) into a Canon 85mm f1.2 (my lens with the largest glass diameter) into my dining table light. Putting the front lens element against the camera allows for the cool red lens flares.
Equipment: Original iPhone
Apps: TiltShift Generator, PhotoshopMobile.com
I was playing with my Son thought why not take his picture for the contest. So I got my iPhone and started taking photos. With little ones it's alway hard to get the shot you want but in this case, it was just "if I get it I get it". It was fun and my son was wanting to grab the phone from me. In the end he got the phone. Like always
I noticed the overcast above my apartment and tried to capture its dark clouds at just the right time.
I used my cellphone: DoCoMo SH-06A. Drop the exposure down to -2. Steady hands and SNAP.
This is my beauty.

Since my phone does not have a great camera (read terrible), i decided to make use of it's crappiness.
I put the anti-shake on and took a few shots from the balcony of my place at night, doing a little light painting with the street/other lights dotted around the burb.
Taken by iPhone 3Gs with app which replaced oryginal camera app - Hipstamatic. It is not about taking clean and sharp photo, but just beatufil looking picture with dose of climate. Technique? Just set up and wait (sometimes quite a while) for your perfect frame. Also reflex should be on your side.
Flashlight was used to provide light.
Attached is the last photo taken with my iPhone before I went all Android on my ass.
Took this with my iPhone 3GS of a daisy in the garden. Used tilt shift gen to add the effect to it.
Motorola Droid. Edited using Photoshop Mobile. Used a Walmart lamp to add backlight to the subject. Thats it. Took about 10 shots to get it to where its worthy of Gizmodo.
I needed to get a shot of my new coral that I added to my tank, so I decided to test out the iPhone 4's new camera.The iPhone 4 camera did a pretty good job capturing the true color of the coral, which doesnt even show up with my 1 year old point and shoot. I didnt use any apps or change anything other than the width of the picture. It can be pretty hard to get a decent, in focus shot of coral with my tank since it has a curved front on it, so I was pretty happy how this shot came out with the new phone.
