Phoneographic Black Runs over White
Fresh off a ski week — no broken bones, in case you’re wondering — high in the Dolomites around the Val Pusteria of the Trentino Alto Adige region of northern Italy, my trusty iPhone 5 served as my workhorse lens in capturing some of the moments that were just too cumbersome to handle with my standard kit of DSLRs.
Getting on and off chairlifts and funiculars, I didn’t have to struggle with a backpack to get to my gear. Nope, I just unzipped one of the pockets on my ski jacket, pulled out the handheld, framed the scene, locked in the AE/AF focus, and shot or panned away.
Quick on the draw, without the nifty iP5 I would’ve come back empty handed and you wouldn’t be able to head up and downhill with me, virtually.
If you’ll grab your gear, let’s relive some of those BLACK runs that I traversed over the powdery WHITE stuff. GERONIMOoooooooooooooo!

If you occasionally shoot with a smartphone or tablet, why not join in the fun and hone your craft. There’s a rotating Phoneography Challenge each and every Monday. For complete details, click on over to Sally’s Lens and Pens by Sally.
Until next Monday, let your phone be your lens.
