How many of you love Photography but do not own a DSLR or a Compact camera?
There will be loads of replies in affirmative. I know that already 🙂
Why don’t you shoot with your mobile phones instead of waiting for an expensive camera ?
As a travel photographer I travel to a lot of cities and sometimes few frames interests me but not worth of 30-40mb file so I click with my phone. Framing and your subject gives outstanding results. I have faced similar queries and worries by my friends and followers regarding investing in a good camera so that they could also click street photography like me. So this time I planned on writing a blog on Street Photography with examples of various mobile phone shots including Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One A9, IPhone 5s and my new Samsung Galaxy J7.
I usually edit my phone photos on Snapseed but this time I gave a chance to Adobe Camera Raw and Color Effex 3rd party Photoshop filter. Results were so amazing that I could not believe as well. Samsung do not give you the power to check WB or set fully manual settings. So sometimes I face a problem of green cast on my photos. Camera RAW really helped me to take out green cast and give some fill light and contrast to make my mobile photos much better. Layer masking helped me in several situations where light condition was harsh and darker on a single image or when colour was changing drastically.
In the World Wide Instameet 13 Delhi (#WWIM13Delhi) I had 2 frames already on my mind. I asked my friend Sabbyy to become my model for that. I completely adored the result. Samsung J7 panorama feature takes care of harsh and dark shadows in a photograph. The other half parts camera raw and color effex did for me.
You can also see the difference between Snapseed edited version and CS6 edited version. I have also converted that file into Black and White through Silver Effex Pro which is another best Bnw filter in Photoshop.
One morning I walked on the street of Chandni Chowk and Chawri Bazar with my friend Tanvi Sharma. I decided to shoot mostly with my mobile because I wanted to test the quality. No wonder it did really great work. Results surprised me so much. Now I am not editing my photos on Snapseed. I love to transfer photos on PC, edit them on Photoshop and then again transfer to mobile for Instagram. Next thing is to check the print quality of photos. I want to check how much bigger the prints of this file can handle. I am going to keep you updated via blog with my future mobile shots.
