Very pleased with this Iphone shot taken a coupla months ago.
Clearly, the best camera is the one you have on you, no matter what it is.
Feel free to comment or critique. Thx - Marko

This prove that even with 2 MP camera you can take good shots.
I really like it.

Rather cool arty shot! I like how diffused the light is and the blur of the person in action.

Very cool. Now did you pick settings that let you do that or did you just end up with whatever the camera could accomplish in that environment?

Very cool indeed. I wonder how hard it would be to reproduce with your current DSLR?

Reminded me of what I read on an interview given by Walker Evans (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walker_Evans)
"People always ask me what camera I use. It's not the camera, it's - - - " and he tapped his temple with his index finger.

I like it too. It has a 'close encounters' feel to it.

Thanks so much for the comments everyone!

I think I COULD have reproduced this more successfully on a DSLR (handheld at about 1/8 with a NON stabilizing lens) but it may not have been my first instinct to be honest.


Very cool. Now did you pick settings that let you do that or did you just end up with whatever the camera could accomplish in that environment?I picked no settings...the only play I had was exposure by tilting the camera a wee bit and seeing if the screen went darker or lighter.

and just so the shot is deconstructed a bit more...he is actually jumping into a fountain lit from the bottom on a 30 degree Celsius night at the Jazzfest in Montreal.

Thx again - Marko
