Day 13 - Stranded

Day 13 - Stranded, originally uploaded by MandrellPhoto.

I had to pick a shot from this experience today - nothing else was appropriate. The end to a 4+ hour bus ride was running out of gas about 5 miles from getting back to the office.

Chased the sun setting until I found this view at the end of the road from a parking lot overlooking Hi way 30 in Fenton. This was one of the times that i decided to chase a photo and it payed off huge!

Day 8 - Dusk

Day 8 - Dusk, originally uploaded by MandrellPhoto.

Start of week 2. Thought I would stray from the indoors and try something a little different. Shot at dusk, after looking at this, I should have moved the mirror to point back at me...

Day 7 - Strings

My son's Fender Stratocaster. Another late night attempt - this time results were much quicker.
I light this with the ambient room light and a small LED light from the lower right.

Day 6 - Dew

Day 6 - Dew, originally uploaded by MandrellPhoto.

This is the first day that started to get difficult. I ended up realizing at 9:45pm that I still hadn't shot a single iPhone photo - even though I had just finished shooting 300+ frames on my DSLR (that didn't count for this...). I stopped and a gas station, shot a few that didn't work, stopped at Wal-Mart and did a quick photo walk - nothing was feeling right. After getting home, I shot this in the beverage cooler in my office. I placed a LED headlight on the shelf below and pointed it up through the glass shelf, that was now fogging up with the door open. Finally success.

30 Day Challenge Day 1

On September 18, 2009 I started a 30 day challenge to help foster creativity. In this challenge I will limit my self to my most basic camera (iPhone 3GS). I will post 1 photo per day for 30 days. It must be shot with the iPhone, any editing if done, must also be limited to the iPhone.

Day 1
I shot this at Train Wreck over lunch. This is the photo that convinced me that this challenge was feasible. This was simply a glass of tea that I snapped a few shots of during lunch. After playing around with editing it, it was convinced and the challenge started.
