Cinemagram – great app for stills with motion

A couple of months ago I made a post about cinemagraph‘s (pictures with parts of them moving). I think this is a really cool way to spice up pictures.

Earlier this week I came across a great iPhone-app that’s all about this technique, Cinemagram. I’ve just tried it out a little bit but I think it’s a really cool app. I think that the best results are given if you record people doing things, like reading a newspaper or just turning their heads and so on. I’ve made a few of those but with respect to those that are featured I’ll let them rest in my cam.

You can find me on Cinemagram by searching for the user Saarimner.com

This image is just an image (taken yesterday from Gondolen in Stockholm) to show what Cinemagram is (look at the roads).

Hope you have a great weekend

Stockholm through my iPhone lens

This is the first real week in Stockholm with “full spring”. In Sweden this is some amazing days. It seems like everyone just un-freezes from the Winter and there are happy people all around.

What’s also really amazing when spring arrives (as in the autumn) is the lighting conditions for photo. I can’t exactly tell you what it is but I think it get’s so much easier to get good shots, even with an iPhone-camera, so I’ve been quite busy taking pics during the days this week.

First of is a pic of Kungsgatan two days ago during lunch hour. What I like with this view is that there are very few who takes any pictures here (maybe it’s due to looking silly on a shopping street.. I don’t know 🙂 ) while I think this view holds one of Stockholm’s nicest views of great architecture.

This pic is taken with HDR and then adjusted with Photo Toaster to get a touch of an older look.

I hope you all have a have a great week!

Autumn Leaves

After a busy weekend where I almost haven’t had the time to hardly sit down, Sunday was all the opposite. Took a walk at one of Stockholms Castles, Drottningsholms Slott. Unfortunately in the amazing weather I forgot my DSLR, but I took a number of pictures anyway with my phone.

Hope you all have a great ending of this (at least in Sweden) beautiful weekend!

If you’re new to shooting in PASM-mode, you probably are interested in getting the right manual values for your shutter-speed, aperture and so on and at the same time learn how these things work together.

With this app you will get a great introduction to all of that and also get som handy tips for different conditions. The app usually costs $1 but is now free.
