Smart Phone Photography Challenge sponsored by @juliank

The best camera you can ever own is the one in your pocket!

Your smartphones camera can do amazing things if you get to know it a little better.
I am lucky enough to have the Huawei P10 which has dual Leica lenses that can take just about any style of photo you’ll ever need.
I’m toying with the idea of a DSLR camera but –

1) They’re stupidly expensive!
2) I’m a poor musician and would much prefer to spend my hard earned cash on musical instruments that rarely lose value!
3) I’m uber clumsy and would probably break it anyway!
4) My Huawei takes amazing shots in the right hands.

Here’s some specs on my phones amazing camera –

Dual: 12 MP (f/2.2, PDAF, OIS) + 20 MP, Leica optics,
2x lossless zoom, phase detection and laser autofocus,
dual-LED dual-tone flash, check quality
Features Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama
Video 2160p @30fps, 1080p @60fps, check quality
Secondary 8 MP, f/1.9 front facing camera.

So here’s a few pics I’ve taken recently whilst out on my adventures!

Experimenting with lens flare – the light hit the top left just at the right moment in this very simple photography subject.


Flowers are such a simple photographic subject. Take these beautiful spring snowdrops as an example – I used a narrow field to capture this shot.

Thanks for checking out my photography post.
