iPhone Photo Friday…

We went back to the Briones Reservoir, this time armed with our own permit (that has got to be the best deal-$20.00 for a three-year permit to walk on trails in beautiful scenic areas managed by EastBayMud) and some sunshine. Our last venture here was on an Audubon bird hike where we had rain the entire time, but more birds on that day than on this day with sun. Along with the iPhone I took my Canon, but of course after one shot the batteries ran out-so typical of me…

After the Great Blue Heron, the camera quit. This presented itself as the perfect opportunity to try my hand at the Pro HDR app on the iPhone. Great landscapes and scenic views. I had no tripod but hoped I could stand still enough for the shots. With Pro HDR you have to stand still and not move the camera for a lengthy time because the app takes two shots one exposed for the highlights and one exposed for the shadows and then aligns and combines them together for the final picture. I did also put these photos into PhotoStudio app to put the black frame around them but there was no further processing after Pro HDR.
