Glitch from an iphone

SF Muni Bus turning the corner

Submission by Ryan Lewis

"For this photo, I have been using the panoramic feature on my iphone as a tool to create stretched images for a few months.  Many people i’ve seen doing iphone photography have been using programs such as Decim8 or other programs.  I do not think less of those people but I wanted my process to be something that I physically had to work at and not just pressing buttons.

Each time I do a panoramic, I have to decide the optimal distance for the shot and path that the subject (in this case, a muni bus) is turning the corner but not coming towards you.  The Iphone panoramic feature draws sliver by sliver as you move the camera across the area.  As I experimented with the pictures, I was able to find the sweet spot of how to make the buses look stretched.

I was looking to a surreal feel with my images but still wanted to keep the integrity of the downtown San Francisco background.  Feel free to look me up at www.instagram.com/urbanglitch.  In the future, I hope to experiment with other camera to see how they process the panoramic images and how to get the look I am working towards.”
