When you don't want to carry your "serious" camera and you feel inspired you have to use what you have in your pocket: your phone.
Now I happen to have an iPhone 5s in my pocket while I was walking around a few days ago. I saw a beautiful blue door which had a shadow on it and thought about a picture I could make. The sun was illuminating the door but the street was dark so a person passing by could be a good opportunity to take a contrasty shot which I think in general is more effective.
As I didn't have my camera with me I grabbed the iphone from my pocket, tapped on the camera app and set the format to square, then I just waited for somebody to pass by. I pressed and holded the shooting button of the iPhone to take a few pictures in burst mode with different people as subjects.
Back home I picked the picture i liked the most among the 6/7 shots I took. Then I processed the picture with Photoshop mobile. The picture was a bit underexposed because I've lowered the exposure from the iPhone camera app. So, I increased the exposure and added more contrast and clarity to the picture; I also added a vignette and increased the saturation a bit to let the blue door pop.
Here you can find the before and after shot.
