a lesson on fancy | iPhone-ography

You don’t need fancy stuff to be fancy. You just need to know how to be fancy.

Deep thoughts, by Shawna Percival. ;)

But really! I am serious. I may have camera gear that is worth more than my car but I certainly don’t need that to take a pretty great picture. Case in point: my recent iPhone-ography. Every single one of these images was shot on my iPhone 4 & processed using the Camera+ app. All but two were taken through the window of my car. Here’s to encouraging you to be creative, with some pretty simple tools. One being a measly 5 megapixel camera.

[Somewhere in Kansas]

[Nebraska Plains]

[The Railroad is the reason many of the cities in Nebraska can make it]

[the deck of the cabin we stayed in. give me this over a beach ANY DAY!!]

[corn. in Nebraska. of course.]

[Lake Swanson, Nebraska. stopped for a diaper change. wanted to stay]

[clay river bed somewhere near Ogalalla, Nebraska.]

[just outside Fredricksburg, TX. Sunflare is achievable on the iPhone! WOOHOO!]

[this was an experiment with the app PANO, which seamlessly wove seven images together. This was the view of our cabin–awesome!]

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
