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…

Straight from the camera; no post-processing

Not remotely possible with a conventional DSLR


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).
