This photo was taken on my new iPhone 6 on Sunday, in Ridgefield, Connecticut. The cameras in smartphones are getting better and better, and it’s easy to take this for granted. But I continue to marvel at the quality of the pictures that can be taken by phones.
See some of the whizzbang specs on the new iPhone here.
Please click on the picture to see it in a LARGER size. And even in the larger size, my blog provider still shrinks the size of the image (number of pixels). The actual image is much sharper and clearer than you see here.
For client work, I’ll continue to use my heavy Nikon cameras and lenses – and phones will never be able to compete with DSLR cameras. But as the old saying goes, “the best camera is the one you have with you.” We mostly always have our phones with us.
I liked the composition in this image – some of which was unintentional – or perhaps serendipitous. For example, I didn’t notice the blue plastic chair in the lower left, but it provides a nice contrast in scale to the tree – and a place to sit to enjoy a beautiful Fall day.
Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.
