Phoneographic Phrames of Nature

This week, ringtone shooters are going up against Mother Nature to phone in a few shots of, well, NATURE for the every-Monday-of-the-month Phoneography Challenge (PC).

Phoneographic Phorses of Nature | ©Tom Palladio ImagesI’ve been on hiatus from the PC for almost two months, shooting and eating my way through Rome, Umbria, Tuscany and the Veneto. But, thankfully, I didn’t forget to frame a few shots with my trusty iPhone 5, knowing, that eventually, I’d be back up in the PC saddle.

Over hill and dale, through vineyards and olive groves, inside urban gardens and outside country villas, the panoramic setting on my iP5 did a nice job of capturing some of Ma Earth’s handiwork.

Here’s a handful of those phoneographic phrames of nature that I captured along the way.

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.

Until next Monday, let your phone be your lens.

  1. Tom, so glad to have you back in the throes of the fun. Your panoramas tell such marvelous stories about the region. I can hardly pick one or two favorites: if forced I’d pick two and five. One of the benefits of the Italian cities is how they are nestled among nature’s bounty. They seem close to Frank LLoyd Wright’s philosophy: form follows function. The cities show respect for nature even as they built them strategically. Happy Phoneography Challenge.

    1. Sally — Now, that’s a well-researched reply. Thanks for mentioning Frank LW; next to Palladio, he’s my have architect. Btw, #2 was taken in Cortona and #5 is a shot of a Palladian villa in Poiana.

    1. Don’t leave AZ without having test driven the panoramic feature on your iP5. With all that open desert, it’s the perfect place to try it out. I’ll be looking to see the results.

      1. Just be careful of fencing, balcony rails, etc. in your panoramas. They tend to turn out jagged in the final result if you pan to quickly. Best to shoot over them, if possible, and remember to pan on a straight line.

  2. Glad to have found another photographer/blogger through the Facebook Blog of the Year group. I love how you are “shooting and eating” your way through Italy–enjoyable pursuits indeed! Buon Viaggio!
