This was meant to be a post with a story behind the photo, but it suddenly turned out to be a post with a story about the photo.
I found it in the deepest corner of my instagram and decided to share here. This trivial task failed when I realized that I don’t have a copy of the photo on my phone, and instagram doesn’t allow sharing with other websites. I looked for it further and found the post-processed copy in my vsco online profile, but not in the app. Sharing from the profile is also impossible, so the only way out was to take the original and edit it once again.
After half an hour of scrolling down my Google photos backup back to December 2013 I’ve managed to find it and thus finally bring it here.
The lesson for everyone here is: keep copies of you favourite mobile photos on you phones or backed up, so you don’t have to go through the editing process again.
As for the picture itself, I particularly like the man sitting next to the girls wondering what they are watching.
Since my very first smartphone (HTC Desire S it was) the camera on my phone has been a vital component. Whenever I considered getting a new phone, I was always looking for a quality snapper. And it’s been a hell of a dilemma as well, because every time I had to decide whether I want to stay with Android and probably deal with some meh camera, or should I switch to iPhone and have to deal with some meh OS. But in the last couple of years the issue seems to have vanished, with so many great smartphones capable of shooting really well.
Here I would skip the sad part of me buying HTC One M8, a Dual Camera of which I described here, and fast forward to a smartphone, that will replace it in the nearest future (hopefully). It’s LG G5 of course.
If you’re into tech or mobile photography, you know about it already. It was announced at MWC2016 a couple of weeks ago and is to be released some time in April. One of its major features is dual camera module with a “standard” 16-megapixel sensor and a wide angle 8mp one. Cameras can be used separately and simultaneously, in the latter scenario you get a number of combinations of a “standard” photo inside the wide-angled one.
To make things even more exciting for mobile photographers there is also a separate module you can attach to the phone. The module is a kind of a camera grip hump with a zoom wheel, shutter button and additional battery. Here is a video from DigitalTrends where they take a closer look at all this.
Well, what can I say? Want it! Absolutely and surely.
2 years! It’s been 2 years since I have posted here anything. Wow. Time flies, like really.
Anyway, it’s good to be back and enjoy all those beauties from my favourite bloggers. As for myself, I come with a couple of changes on my photo front.
First and foremost, I’m shooting film again. I’ve finally managed to get some of my cameras to my new place and the stuff for developing and scanning. Developing film on my own is a new thing for me, and I’m excited and afraid at the same time, but this is the only way to go on shooting film where I live. If everything goes well, I’ll post some black&white pictures here for sure.
Second, I’ve decided to dedicate more space here to mobile photography. Partially because I’m interested in it and there are smartphones shooting RAW already, and another reason would be a number of photos I have on my phone that I’d love to share;-) They are not all street photography, though, but anyway.
Oh, and I will still post some of my old film photos with background anecdotes like before.
So stay tuned for new pictures, stories and other photo related stuff.
It seems to me that I’ll be uploading more photos made with my smartphone than any other camera, as life is running fast and I hardly have enough time to take pictures with my dslr.
Moreover, recently I bought a new smartphone, HTC One M8, and regardless of what is said about its 4 UltraPixel sensor, I think we have some good times together ahead.
The photo above was made with it by the way with further postproccessing in VSCOCam app. What do you think about it?
