Slow Shutter on iPhone

Today we went on a photo shoot at a black and green sand beach with the Hilo Photo Club led by Robert Frutos, a nature photographer who runs photo tours on the Big Island. It’s a little known spot that requires a high clearance vehicle to access.

When I got there, I was disappointed with the light. The sky was super bright and the lava…well, the lava is dark. No big surprise. Lava is great to photograph when there is a little directional light on it. The beach looked a dirty brown rather than the shades of black and green that one can see at close range. The black and green occur from the mix of lava and olivine. Somehow they separate enough to cause beautiful patterns.

I was using Kris’ 5D Mark II and we discovered that one of the dials was inoperable. We weren’t able to change ISO and shutter speed. I went to the iPhone to see what was possible. On the ride over, I experimented with SlowShutter Cam.

On the Road to the Sea and on the shoreline, I went back to shooting with my go-to Camera+. Love it for shooting and processing:
