Playing with a nifty app on my iPhone 4S this afternoon, known as Simply HDR I wandered over to hubby’s model train room.
A project twelve years in the making, he’s been creating his own small world. The room is filled to the gill with trains that flank the walls and ride the rails of this complex layout. Little people, little cars, to-scale buildings for a multitude of purposes fit into this ‘O’ Scale world.
The app is easy to use, opening it up to take the photo a large variety of HDR filters are available to choose from. So many to choose from I had a hard time finding a favorite. Once the look you want is found, the photo can be easily saved to the camera roll, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram. The original photo is automatically saved along with the edited version.
One thing I did struggle with the iPhone is getting the focus spot on. Seems the depth of field is not as much as I would like. Probably because of the low lighting conditions.
It was fun playing with this app, and I can see all sorts of funky things being created with the train room. Next time I’ll figure out a way to stabilize the iPhone and add more lighting to the scene. Enjoy!
