A Weekend Off With The iPhone 6 Plus

Chris Nachtwey

This | Is | Me

Last weekend was the first weekend in a while that I didn't have anything on my schedule that I needed to do. Sure, I could have found something to work on (the work never stops as a small business owner, and honestly sometimes it's hard to disconnect) but instead I decided to spend time with the people who mean the most to me. My girlfriend and my parents. April and I spent Saturday at the corn maze, picking pumpkins, visiting a winery, and making dinner together. Sunday, Mom made a delicious breakfast for all of us and Dad and I hit up the Rhode Island coastline for some surf fishing!

Being a photographer means that I'm always looking to create, but honestly sometimes I just get tired of carrying around my professional gear to create personal images.

Enter the iPhone 6 Plus!

Anyone who has followed me on Facebook for a long time will know I loved my iPhone 4! In fact I loved it so much, I did a year long project call the iPhone picture of the day in 2013. While it was challenging to create a new image everyday for a year, I found that project actually made me a better photographer. It made me focus on the everyday and create images of what we tend to overlook on a daily basis. Sadly about as soon as the project ended my iPhone 4 took a nasty spill and the camera lens got so scratched that for about nine months taking a half way decent photo with it was impossible. Then last Thursday I got a call from Verizon telling me my iPhone 6 Plus (yup, the one that supposedly can be bent) was available for pick up! With a new iPhone in hand I decided to capture some of my weekend off to share with you.

I will say the camera in the iPhone 6 Plus is pretty amazing! For anyone like myself who likes to capture life in front of them with minimal gear the iPhone 6 Plus is the point and shoot camera for you. It's almost too easy to use, and the images, well, they are down right amazing!

All the images below were edited using Lightroom Mobile.

Enjoy

I found a pretty good third party app that lets me do long exposure images with my iPhone. Safe to say I can't wait to test it out some more.
