From a period spanning mid-2015 to mid-2016, I did a 365-image project, where I took a photo every day and published it (on my now-abandoned Tumblr site) . What made this 365-unique is that I shot every one of these pictures using my iPhone. I did this for three reasons:

  1. to incorporate photography into my every day life
  2. to learn how to shoot decent photos with my phone
  3. to learn how to use various iOS photo apps and filters. I spent a lot of time adding frames, funky filters, and quirky textures to my images.

There are those people who say that these things are “gimmicky” and have no place in serious photography. To which I say- “Yes, you’re absolutely right. Now go away, I’m having fun here.”

This was shot down Seckner alley, the small alley next to Illegal Pete’s in Old Town Fort Collins. At the end of the alley you can see the mural that was featured in last week’s weekly image.

Digital Darkroom. Created with the Stackables app for iPad. While this app won tons of design awards and is one of my favorites, it’s no longer on the app store and has a crash on one of the screens, so I regrettably cannot link to it here. There is a scaled down version of the app, called Formulas, that runs on iPad and iPhone and is still available.

WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
