As I mentioned previously, I upgraded to an iPhone 5S. Here are some recent shots taken in different light situations:
Chicken and avocado enchiladas at a restaurant in very poor light. Pretty good detail for an iPhone. . . much better than the iPhone4 I was using before.
A vintage sweater at an antiques emporium with overhead fluorescent lighting. Again, decent detail.
Then we went to the botanical gardens.
I don’t know the name of this yellow flower, but I like it a lot. Dappled shade here, which seems to be a good condition for iPhones.
The always-strange Giant Dutchman’s Pipe vine in full sun.
This was a disappointment. The colors of this agave were so rich, and they looked good on the phone, but not here. Will have to go back with the Nikon soon, if I can. It would have picked up the finer nuances.
This was so true to life I couldn’t believe it. The colors and light looked exactly like this. Again, light shade is the iPhone’s friend.
When I have to shoot in bright sun, there’s so much glare, I can hardly see the display. I basically look for a basic outline and hope for the best. I’m not looking for award-winning photography here, but I do like the challenge of shooting with a phone.
As is often the case, there was a wedding about to take place.
Very happy with the amount of detail in this shot of sea lavender and succulents. I’m lucky enough to have a steady hand, but I still get one of my fingers in the shot from time to time! One of the disadavantages of having long digits.
Finally, my new favorite tree, the Cape Chestnut:
The “pom poms” are nice enough in the distance, but up close they are something else . . . .
Great weekend, everyone!
