the new snapshot / mistakes #1-3 ~ it happens to the best of us

In the course of human events, picture making wise, accidental / unintended shutter activation is a common occurrence. And, to date, my experience with the iPhone camera module leads me to believe that it is more possible than with a "real"camera. The shutter release on-screen button requires but a light touch to activate the shutter. Consequently, I have had more unintentionally made pictures than I have over the past 10 years with my "real" cameras.

But here's the thing. I really like a surprising number of my "accidental" pictures. And, relative to my the new snapshot pictures which attempt to repicate some of the foibles of traditional snapshot pictures, these accidental pictures fit right into my snapshot making activities. What a wonderful coincidence.

fYi, some of the other snapshot foibles which I intend to explore / create are: over / under exposure, extreme backlight with dark subjects in the foreground, bad focus, bad cropping (heads partially cut off and the like), light leaks / fogged portions of a picture and awkward facial expressions and body gestures / positions.

Many of these foibles will necessitate the making of staged pictures, aka: tableau vivant. Or, some, such as fogged film and missed focus, will have to be created, aka: faked, with effects / processing using one iPhone app or another. As far as I am concerned, that all good with me.
