PhotoFriday – ‘Mobile Phone Photo’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Mobile Phone Photo’

As you’ve probably seen the last few days I’ve been posting my new Red Sea underwater photos, today the photofriday theme is mobile photos so I though I’d share a topside panorama I took at Tiran with my iPhone. I love the (relatively) new iPhone panorama function where you just hold it up and move the phone across the scene to photo it.

If you want to see my underwater photos from various places then check out the galleries in my Reef Beasties Gallery. Or my best from 2012 here.

PS: I’m currently still selling my 60mm/D300 underwater macro set-up. Click here for more details & the full list of equipment for sale or email me at scubasuzy-sellingnikongear@yahoo.co.uk. Thanks for supporting my work!

I love my iphone4

ok, its official, I love my iphone4. Apple has been getting lots of bad press recently over the reception issues with the phone. I get that. I understand why people balk at paying all that cash to have a phone that doesnt keep signal in crappy signal areas if you hold it a certain way. I get it, I do. But I still love it! This phone is my first new phone in 6 years (my old nokia stll going strong) is great if you want to make calls or text. But I don’t. I want to use the internet to check my email, facebook, twitter etc. Most of all I love the take a photo, edit a photo in an app (to HDR, Panorama stitch, filter or all manners of things) and then upload directly to the internet. I hadnt really tried out the camera until this weekend but now I am seriously impressed…

I have not touched up those photos (only to resize the 1st one and crop the second one).

Just remember what Chase says, the best camera is the one you have with you. What photos does your phone take?

these have been slightly edited in LR (it slightly over exposed the clouds for my taste):

I need to get some more photo apps & learn how to resize for the net from my phone but until then I’ll be resizing in LR & putting them in this gallery:
