Reflections...Selfie

I've been enjoying taking photos of my reflection in store windows lately.  I don't know why, maybe I'm just bored. You can really end up with some fun images, especially when you are obsessed with iPhone apps. As luck would have it, the next theme over at Mortal Muses is "reflections".  After seeing that prompt, I was even more inspired to get some fun reflective shots, so yesterday I took this one.

{iPhone, PictureShow, Vintage Dust, Light Leak 3}

When shooting with my iPhone, I always try to note which app (and sometimes even the processing within each app when I can remember) that I used for the photos I post here and on flickr. I hope that those of you using the iPhone will do the same...I am always happy when I see a great iPhone shot and the photographer has listed which app they used to achieve the effect.  We all want to learn something new, don't we?

For now, my collection of photography apps includes:  HipstamaticLo-MobFormat 126Plastic BulletPudding CameraPictureShow, PICtoneGorillacam, and PS Mobile.  There are so many apps out there that I still want, but I figure that I have to learn the ins and outs of these first before moving on.

If you have been bitten by the iPhoneography bug, which apps do you use and LOVE?  Please let me know so I can add them to my wishlist!!

I love the idea of taking pictures of your reflection in shop windows, etc. It's a great one! Will have to give it a try.

Thanks for your kind comments. Sorry about the late reply - you know how life is sometimes. But I really do appreciate it.

I'm intrigued with the reflections thing and the iPhone photo taking. I must learn more about these apps.

Really makes me want an iPhone - but the new iTouch comes with a camera - maybe I'll go that direction since I'm not willing to switch to ATT to get the phone
