A year in phonetography

It’s been a full year of practice with this new hobby I call “phonetography”. I understand that the quality will never be at par with those professional cameras but due to my laziness in carrying heavy camera equipment, I have found what certainly best fits me which is phone photography.

I may be biased but I think I may have captured some really great photographs. Throughout the year, I have put my “creative” knack for photography in use starting from initially using just my Nokia 6300 then eventually graduating to HTC Desire. A few days ago, I finally upgraded to HTC One X+ which I only plan on using during the new year just so it becomes a sort of fresh start. I certainly have high hopes for my new toy!

I still have a lot to improve but without further ado, here are what I think are some of my best phonetographs this year. And oh, these are unretouched, unenhanced, raw pictures. Enjoy and happy new year! 🙂

I wish I could say this was in Turkey.
