A semi-quick word about these 'iphone photo week in review' posts. I've been asked a time or two or ten how I do these. I don't have some super secret sophisticated method of assembling the phone dump to share with you, unfortunately. (Do you? Tell me if you do, por favor.) But I keep doing these every week not because I think all of you really care about some random picture of Vivian in her pajamas with bed head at 4pm on a Thursday, but because I've got the blog book in the back of my mind, and I know these little here-and-there candid shots are going to come together to paint a very big picture one day in a way no super special family portrait even could. You know? So do it. It's not hard at all, just a little slow. Here's how I do mine using my iPhone, the Instagram app, iPhoto on my MacBook, and picnik.com.
one: i take pictures with my iphone throughout the week
two: once a week, using my iphone, i upload my favorite shots from the week to instagram one by one
three: i apply my favorite filter to each picture (i like earlybird for the coloring and rounded edges)
four: i email each finished image to myself
five: i repeat that about 10-20 times, depending on how many pics i took that week
six: from my laptop, i follow the link in my email to the full size image in my instagram account
seven: i drag each picture from the instagram site into iphoto
eight: i upload the pictures from iphoto into my picnik account
nine: i make a collage in picnik
ten: i save the collage to my desktop
eleven: i upload the collage to my blog
That sounds like more work than it is, actually. It's not that bad. I can do it and watch RHO-wherever and drink wine at the same time, and I'm no genius.
I hope that helped!
Now, on with the photos.
