"Morning Frost" by Jay Lemieux


Have you checked out Facebook’s iPhone Photography Competition (IPC) page. Every month, iPhoneographers submit photos based on a chosen theme. The last month’s theme was “Raw” — completely raw, unapped images. The winner of this competition was iPhoneographer Jay Lemieux with his great photograph “Morning Frost”, shown above.

Here’s Jay in his own words:

“It all started back in college with 35mm b&w, there’s just something special about watching a photography come to life in the darkroom. I then transitioned into digital photography using a Point-and-Shoot camera, which then elevated to using a DSLR. When I got my first iPhone (3GS) I stumbled upon the amazing iPhoneography movement, it is really a great community of iPhoneographers that I’m proud to be a part of. After getting the iPhone 4, things really took after, new apps, better camera, front facing camera, etc and I can’t seem to put it down… I’m taking pictures everyday. However, I do dabble with my DSLR from time to time, but 99% of the time, you’ll see me capturing photographic moments with my iPhone.”
