Hawthorne Bridge

June 30, 2012

Taken with Motorola Droid X using HDR Camera. Edited with iPad using Snapseed

Hawthorne Bridge in Portland, OR at 3am. The story behind this shot goes something like this:

I went out to a hip hop show downtown and met a guy that’s been around the Portland scene for awhile, as bar close was approaching they invited me out to Salmon Street Studio to continue the party.

Long story short, after an hour or so of partying and meeting new people, I figured it was about time to walk back to my place and took the Hawthorne Bridge — which was fairly empty at that point in the night. I decided it would be fun to lay down in the middle of the bridge and drunkenly snapped this shot while I was chilling out. Turned out to be a pretty awesome shot and a great night overall.

Taken with Motorola Droid X Using HDR Camera

Taken while climbing over the rockslide that occurred back in 2008 or 2009. I can’t remember the exact date that we were told but the path was definitely blocked off. We just ignored the signs and walked through anyway. Definitely worth it.

Taken with Motorola Droid using HDR Camera

My Droid X finally kicked it and no longer starts up. It lasted 6+ months with a broken screen and whack battery though, so that’s pretty good. In the meantime I got my self an OG Droid which has a much slower processor, weaker camera and crashes my applications all the time — but I still managed to grab this picture.

So now I’m looking to upgrade to something brand new hella soon here as there are a bunch of new phones coming out. Right now it’s looking like I might wait until the iPhone 5 releases but there are a few Android devices I like, too.

Any suggestions?

San Francisco Sunset

Taken with Motorola Droid X using HDR Camera

This was taken down by the ocean in San Francisco near sunset and I really liked how the mountainous part of the picture turned out when I was playing around with some edits. So I cropped it up and now it’s my new timeline cover picture on Facebook. If I ever get around to printing my photos on canvas one day I want to make this one HUGE. like widescreen TV huge.

Review: HDR Camera vs. Camera360

Taken with Motorola Droid X using HDR Camera

I’m on a mission to push the limits of mobile phone photography as far as I can. And because I really like the look of HDR, my mission starts with finding the best way to take HDR photos on my Droid X.

For the past month or so I’ve been using Camera360 to get that HDR look even though it isn’t true HDR. I really liked the results, expect I kept getting tons of noise in my photos.

Then I found out about HDR Camera which is “true HDR.” The difference, from what I can tell, is that Camera360 just messes with all the levels and colors whereas HDR Camera actually takes multiple photos and combines them (you can read about it here).

So today I went out and shot a few photos with both apps so I could see for myself the differences. Keep reading to see for yourself…
