I was out shooting yesterday and I already had my camera packed up so I just used my phone. While I was in a major tourist area where cameras are common and not unusual no one thought anything of me with my cell phone. As I mentioned earlier my cell phone is a rather good camera. I have a Nexus 6P which has a 12MP sensor in it and I use Camera FV-5 app that uses the 6P’s ability to shoot RAW. With the app I have basic DSLR controls.
Funny thing is as a photographer getting harassed for having a camera is becoming more common. Having a cell phone which is equally sufficient for producing images is considered non-threatening. These two images are proof.
They are vastly different in styles. The first is a landscape in a classic 16×9 crop. The other is an abstract in monochrome. I didn’t feel that they warranted a separate post for each so I just toss them in together to show what a cell phone can do and to give a teaser on where I shot. Double bonus points if you can figure it out. Saying Washington DC isn’t enough. The abstract is the real give away but I only shot a very small portion of the total work. Oh, and super double bonus points if you get the reference for the title of the abstract.
The Thing That Should Not Be
