For disappearing acts, it’s hard to beat what happens to the eight hours supposedly left after eight of sleep and eight of work. ~Doug Larson
Like many, it seems I’ve fallen victim to a robber of what is most precious to men (Napoleon I, Maxims, 1815) . Over the last four weeks I’ve had little time to enjoy my photography, and the only time I’ve used my camera was at other peoples behest (albeit still enjoyable). To maintain the spark of photographic interest I’ve been making full use of a tool that has divided professionals – my mobile phone. The ability to grab a shot, edit and distribute in seconds is brilliant, and you can see why it has some professionals in a flap. I’ve been in two minds about the whole ‘instagram’ ‘fad’, I see how it may be considered to diminish the efforts of professionals to get certain effects by a simple touch of a button… that said, it has allowed me to continue shooting while I have no time to do the ‘real’ stuff.
