I joined ShutterCal, and I’ve been shooting every day. I love that photography is becoming a habit, just something I always do. I was calling myself a photographer before, but my shooting was very sporadic. Now I am aware of when I shoot, and I make time for it every day. Sometimes, it is with Beloved Camera, my Nikon. But a lot of times, I am also shooting with my iPhone as well now. My Nikon images are prettier, but I love the simplicity of just capturing little slices of my life as I see them with the iPhone. Plus I have some fun photo apps so I can really make fun photo art with the iPhone. When I first got my iPhone, I used the camera rarely. Now I am always grabbing it to capture the little things that amuse or interest me.
My new favorite way to shoot is with ShakeitPhoto – this is all Darrah’s fault, entirely. She mentioned on Twitter how she had this fun Polaroid app, where you actually shake the picture to make it develop faster (Shake it like a Polaroid picture!) and it has the old school feel to it. Naturally, I had to go and download it so I could play too. It makes everything look cool and neat.

Cool light fixtures in the elevator lobby
Delicious sugarplums made by the amazing and lovely Jess
See? Even elevator buttons look cool when shot as a Polaroid
