The iPhone Files:
Luckily for me, someone came up with this handy dandy invention called the iPhone. It is an affordable, portable, and useful tool for several different functions, which I love because it allows me to multitask! Usually, the only reason I pack it around on a daily basis is so that I can squeeze in some snap shots of the every day working life utilizing its relatively high quality camera. Sometimes it is nice to make a phone call off of every now and then. (insert winky emoji here)
Usually where I’m at in the middle of nowhere, (not complaining) service is a rare unicorn never to be found, banishing the iPhone to a life of airplane mode to save on battery life. With all its positive aspects, the one problem is that I must sacrifice the quality of using my larger more expensive camera in order to obtain the shots I do. One does not simply strap on their fifteen hundred dollar Canon EOS 7D Mark II to the back of their saddle and long trot 7 miles only to say
“sorry, I cant heel that calf for you… I wouldn’t want to damage my camera”. “Could you hold still and pose while I get a shot of you please? Can you move your horse a little to the right so I can get the mountains behind you??” “Oh, I think that calf is running out of air by the way… maybe you should give him some slack, thanks!”
So I do what I can with my handy dandy iPhone tucked into random places on my person best not mentioned to the public (they don’t make the most useful shirt pockets for girls clothing these days).
Until next time,
