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.
This past April I went to Denver for the annual #GSMCON Government Social Media Conference. Normally, I would always travel with my Fuji x100F, but this time I decided to only take my iPhone X and leave behind my beloved x100F. I was looking for a way to travel lighter and with my shiny new iPhone X only a few months old still, it seemed like a good idea.
It’s that time of year again when Apple has iPhone fans in a frenzy over their latest and greatest release. This year we got not one, but two new iPhones to choose from. Apple released the iPhone 8 (skipping a 7s model) and the all new 10th Anniversary iPhone X preorders start October 27th.
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.
I was addicted to Instagram long before most people knew what it was. So whenever I see curated list of Instagram recommendations—especially from a source like Time.com— I have to share. So settle back with a latte and enjoy perusing Time.com's list of the 51 Instagrammers in the United States. Enjoy :)

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.
Historically long exposure photography has not been easy to do with smartphones. While there are apps that give you some long exposure abilities they are lacking in the control you want and usually don't produce high resolution files.
