I signed up for iPhone academy. My main goal is to get better at taking photos with my phone because it is really hard to haul a camera up the side of a mountain, without killing any of my family members๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

We have a lot of plans this summer, that involve outdoor activities. Some of those activities could be considered a tad dangerous,๐Ÿ˜‰ but I still want to get some shots of all of us together. With college graduations, new jobs and boyfriends/girlfriends, it is getting tougher to corral the family for these special moments.

Last night it was as if the sky was on fire! I wanted to take a panorama and catch both the moon and the sun.

Here is the original:



I used Snapseed to warm it up a little, the goal was to make sure it still looked natural. Can you see the moon? Hope so!

Wish me luck as I try to figure out all these apps!!

  1. Your pics are already fantastic so it will be interesting to see how well it transfers to a phone. This sunset is wonderful! I really admire the way you keep learning and pushing yourself.
    I use snapseed for phone photos as well. It is great.

  2. Going up mountains, outdoor activities, a โ€œtadโ€ dangerousโ€ฆ sounds like you like to live life on the edge! I have to chuckle because Iโ€™m sat here feeling like such a grumpy homebody whose idea of excitement is a sale at the supermarket! The photography course sounds like a great idea, is that a free course or one youโ€™ve paid for?
    Your photo looks gorgeous, like the sky and clouds have been whipped up. Snapseed isnโ€™t one Iโ€™d come across before so Iโ€™ll have to check that one out.

    • Hey, those supermarket sales can be very dangerous!! I did pay for the iPhone academy class-97 dollars (US). The editing class is much more! I have been just learning the apps on my own, but I am sure the class would be worth it! I am learning a lot about my phone๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. That’s a smart idea taking an iphone. I does get heavy toting around a camera and sometimes you don’t have it when a photo opp shows up. Love the sunset. It looks awesome.
