We have a Hamburger for our random meal of the day. I am wondering if this breaks my new years resolution of not buying any camera bodies for 2012 if the camera is part of a phone? I am always on the lookout for an awesome point and shoot camera and I think that I finally found it in a phone. The best camera is the one you have with you and since I should have my phone with me, it becomes the best camera.
The funny thing was that I actually had my DSLR with me. We were traveling up to the Bay Area to San Jose and decided to stop for lunch. Since I've already shot In-N-Out Burger before, I decided to just take a quick snap of the burger to see what it looks like with my new iPhone 4S. I actually use the iPhone as part of my work flow to take pictures of menus so that I can remember what I ate. The way I document my random meals is to use my iPhone Yelp app to check in so that I have a history of what I ate. Then take a picture of the menu with my iPhone so that I can look at it when I write my blog post. I use to take the menu shots with the camera that I shoot food with but I found that it so much nicer to have all the menu shots in one location, that I can view whenever I finally decide to post a particular shot.
To complete my work flow, I normally quickly go though the shots that I've have taken on my many random cameras and then put the winning shot into my dropbox folder. Dropbox is great as I like the ability to access the files wherever I am. That is a referral link below. I will not get any money but will get more free space if you sign up ;)
With the file in my dropbox folder, I can actually browse the photos with my iPhone Dropbox app and sometimes choose what to post later that day.
The final step is to post on random meal of the day with some html editing to make to photos larger on the screen. All this for Zero Dollars and Zero Cents as this is just my hobby, but I do have lots of fun...
Found at In-N-Out Burger in Kettleman City, California.
