Take Me Home, Country Road

#9 in a series of ten automated daily posts that illustrate camera phone images that fall outside the realm of conventional point & shoots. Today: A walk along a (posterized) country road with my faithful companion, Missy.

Posterization: conversion of a continuous gradation of tones to several regions of fewer tones, with abrupt changes from one tone to another.

  • The previous Binary B&W posts were an example
  • Today’s post illustrates color posterization
  • These were done at capture with my iPhone & not in post-processing

A comparison of Binary B&W vs. color posterization (a boulder face)


This is one of a series of short daily posts scheduled for automatic posting through the first week of August. By then I should be settled in my new home and ready for a normal daily routine.

These quickie posts illustrate non-conventional camera phone images, but don’t explain the “how”. Explanations will follow later. Let me know which ones interest you for future elaboration.

Keep in mind, I’m an iPhone newbie and many of the illustrative images reflect my inexperience. As with a DSLR – it’s all about technique (which I lack with the iPhone).

Walking the Dog

#8 in a series of ten automated daily posts that illustrate camera phone images that fall outside the realm of conventional point & shoots. Today – binary B&W images while walking the dog (Missy is very patient with me as I stop every few steps to capture yet another image).

A Strip-photography Selfie

#6 in a series of ten automated daily posts that illustrate camera phone images that fall outside the realm of conventional point & shoots. Today’s example is another strip-photography example (prior examples are in #4 of the series)

Now this is downright silly ugly

Layered Dreams

#5 in a series of ten automated daily posts that illustrate camera phone images that fall outside the realm of conventional point & shoots. Today’s example is a layering (think multiple exposures) of three distinct subjects. I just came up with this 30 minutes ago while walking the dog – definitely a work in progress.

The Final (overdone) Result
iPhone_150727_171846_IMG_1110-1


I started with this next image

  • Which is a straight shot made through the glass globe of a lawn light
  • The globe’s bottom half shows the scene in front of me
  • The top half, starting above the clouds, show reflections from behind me
  • The globe itself introduced a nice polarizing effect

    I then turned around and made the 2nd layer which is the line of trees you see reflected in the original image’s globe just under the reflection of the setting sun; the camera automatically layered it

Not leaving well enough alone, I walked a few feet to a nearby small boulder and layered it to add texture to the image.


Here’s another. Same idea with two layers.

Strip Photography

#4 in a series of ten automated daily posts that illustrate camera phone images that fall outside the realm of conventional point & shoots. Today’s example illustrates a technique called Strip Photography (aka Slit-Scan).

What’s Strip Photography you ask? It doesn’t involve nudity. Here’s a Wiki-article.

The following images aren’t very good IMO, but serve to illustrate that strip photography can produce interesting but bizarre results. I’ll devote a series to this genre in a month or so but, for now…

Binary B&W Multiple Exp. Florals

#3 in a series of ten automated daily posts that illustrate camera phone images that fall outside the realm of conventional point & shoots. Today’s example follows up on yesterday’s Binary B&W as well as previous multiple exposure florals.

Black Eyed Susans

iPhone_150727_131810_IMG_1024-resizeSingle Exposure


iPhone_150727_131812_IMG_1026-resize

Multiple Exposure


iPhone_150727_131810_IMG_1025-resizeMultiple Exposure Closeup


If the images are Binary B&W (pure blacks & whites with no grays) why are there grays in the 2nd two images? Because they are multiple exposures. Anywhere that a pure black or white in one exposure overlaps the opposite tone in another exposure, the result is gray.

Want to do this with any digital camera, not just a phone camera? Read this 2013 post of mine.
