The Great Epic Blackberry Shootout of Awesomeness

The Great Epic Blackberry Shootout of Awesomeness

Blackberry Shootout - Benjamin Derkin

This is Benjamin Derkin, friend, comrade, IPS Instructor, and photographer extraordinaire. It just so happened that one day last fall we both found ourselves on location without "real" cameras. Fortunately, we weren't the ones on assignment that day. To stave of the inevitable boredom that must come when you're in a beautiful location without your SLR, we embarked on The Great Epic Blackberry Shootout of Awesomeness to create the most Epic Blackberry Portraits of Awesomeness with, yes... our Blackberries.

Benjamin, of course, took pictures of me with his Blackberry Tour while I photographed him with the Blackberry Storm. You'll find Benjamin's shots on his blog at: http://derksworks.com/photoblog/2010/blackberry-shootout/

I think we're pretty awesome, but then again, I'm rather biased. Regardless, I'm a fan of photographers creating awesome images with the tools they have, be it a pro-SLR or the cell phone in their pocket. Today's not coming back... shoot it while you can!

Someday, I think I just might see Benjamin without an apple in his hand...
