How to Shoot Skylines with Smartphones: Point and Shoot with Ant Pruitt

If you ever wanted to learn how to shoot a great black and skyline, stop now. It’s Point and Shoot with Ant Pruitt. Brady Glenn wins the smartphone pic challenge this week … gorgeous. — When someone mentions the term skyline to you, all sorts of images come to mind. Tall buildings. Mountain ranges. The line of sight off a whaler. Everyone has his or her mental skyline in mind.  In this week’s  episode of my show Point and Shoot with Ant Pruitt, I once again called upon my Smartphone Photographers Community on Google+ and challenged it to come up with gorgeous smartphone skyline shots. And they had to be black and white. Find the show below, complete with a discussion on the methods each photographer used. It’s amazing how processing in black and white will transform a photo.

This week’s panel includesRobert Knight, Deborah Walmer-Basembe, Michael King, Kenneth Lee, Michael Portis, Robyn Saunders, Alice Saunders, Mike Sweeney and Michelle A. Thorns. And the winning shot from this week’s challenge came from Brady Glenn of PixelCorps.
