Review of Everyday for the iPhone

For the past 2 months I have been using a little iPhone application called Everyday. The app was inspired by photographer Noah Kalina, and I first heard about it after attending a talk by Noah. Noah is best known for taking a picture of himself everyday for the past 11 years. You can see the first 5 years of his project in this YouTube video, which has been viewed almost 20 million times.

When you first start using Everyday there is not much to write home about, but after a while you will start to love it! The premise is simple; take a photo of yourself at regular intervals.

Texas here I come. yeeHa!

Its Phoot Camp time again and Pictory Mag recently announced 2011 attendees. If you don’t know what Phoot Camp is you can check out my previous posts about here and yours truly is in the line up again!

I have been having a bit of a crazy time lately so only realized the deadline was 36 hours away after giving a talk in London! That evening and in the following morning (in golden hour loveliness) I set about shooting a few self self portraits. I shot 2 montage portraits on my Lomo LCA of my self witch are an evolution of my other montage portraits. A collage of different self portraits on different backgrounds and a 2 digital shots. I submitted the montage shot below but in hindsight think I prefer the topless one.

Check the shot I submitted and the ones I did not below. Click on the images below to be taken to the respective Flickr pages.
