Shot on iPhone - #Sunrise

ShootLighter has always been about lighter, mobile-friendly photography. Sometimes my beloved Fuji x100 series camera is the star of the show, and sometimes it’s my iPhone or DXOOne connected camera. Apple has been promoting #ShotOniPhone for a few years now since the introduction of the iPhone 6, so I thought I would start a weekly “Shot on iPhone” series, a recap of my favorite iPhone photos from that week, or recently.

Thank you and Happy Holidays

Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog, followed me on social media and endured my first year of videos on YouTube. I am looking forward to an even better 2017. From my family to yours, Happy Holidays.

This is a shot I took with my iPhone 6s Plus a few months back while shooting the annual King and Queen Parade held at Shuri Castle here in Okinawa. While waiting for the parade to start the performers relaxed and enjoyed some casual conversation. I heard them laughing and turned to fire off this shot in burst mode with my iPhone. Always remember while you definitely don't need to use burst mode every time, it can be very effective for quick snaps or when there's movement.

One of my favorite things to do here is walking the back streets and alleys with my camera. This is a side street near the covered mall in Naha. I shot this with my Fuji x100t.

Gordy's Cafe in Kadena Town. Best burgers on Okinawa.  Fired this one off remotely using the Fuji app on my iPhone while my X100T was sitting on the table.

This is a shot I took with my iPhone 6s Plus at Kafuu Resort. The clouds blocked the sunset but it was still a cool scene.

Out driving on Ikei Island and drove by these two horses on a local farm. Shot this with my iPhone 6s Plus and processed the image in the Mextures app.
