    I took this photo with my Mom’s iPad and was wondering how I could take better pictures with it.

    @lifeseasonphotography, That’s a pretty cool shot! I’ve also done some experimentation with simple iPad photography and you can actually do some cool things! I like how the cars appear to be almost staggered out in front of your car. However, the shadow cast across the road behind the first car seems distracting.
    What generation of iPad was it taken with?

    Okay, good point out; I didn’t notice that. Thank you. It is a 4th generation iPad.

    Good job on “through-the-windshield” photography! I did a lot of that on a trip I took out west last fall. When you’re driving through great scenery and don’t have time to stop, it’s about your only option! I think that cropping the picture as I’ve done here would improve it. Also, I think it would have been nice to try a shot when you got a little closer to the skyline if possible so that it would be more predominant.

    Okay. Sure. Thank you for the tips. What do you think of this one?

    In reply to your city shot, I like that you made it B&W! It matches the feeling of the location well. I’ve driven around Chicago enough (and shot pictures out the car window enough!) to know that the views from the highways are all so very grungy.

    As in all cityscapes, keep the horizon level. 🙂

    This shot would look really cool with a little motion blur! The car is moving fast enough that you could probably get some at 1/40th without too much camera shake. Especially in the cars and Jersey barriers at the sides of the photo….
