Camera Phones

Smile, you are on camera



Everybody has one. Photos taken with a cell phone is becoming common place. People are snapping, posting and snapping again. There are apps that allow you to post your photos to your favorite site whether its Photobucket, Instagram, Flickr or somewhere else almost as fast as you can say cheese.

The first thing I did after receiving my new phone was to check out the camera. I recommend using the largest resolution that your camera can achieve.  Go to your camera settings > aspect ratio/resolution and choose the highest setting available. The file size of your pictures will be large but most cell phones these days can handle large amounts of data. If you have a SD card installed in your phone, saving your photo’s to that will save memory in your phone.

The best way to learn your new camera phone is to go out and play with it… snap, snap and then snap again!

Having Fun In The Fog

Knowing your camera’s settings can help in getting the shot. Shooting in the fog is really not any different than any other other shooting conditions, if you know how to set it up. This on the right, was shot early in the morning and very foggy. Don’t be afraid of your kit lens, it can produce some very good results! This was shot with my 18-55 at 40mm. I almost always shoot aperture priority, in this case I set it at f/5.6, bumped the ISO to 200 to get a shutter speed of 1/200.

This shot on the left, was taken about an hour after the above shot. The sun was trying to break up the fog.I switched to my 50mm prime because its much faster than the kit lens. I figured being in the woods, in the fog, I might need a faster shutter to get a sharp picture. As it turned out, I probably really didn’t need it but I do love the nifty fifty.Camera settings for this was 50mm, f/2.2, ISO 100, giving me a shutter speed of 1/800.
