Another superb day in London with Amy this Saturday in the Brick Lane area.
I set a personal task to try and shoot one or two images from each set with my phone. I got most of them but for two or three. As I was leading the group I did not have much time, just a quick assessment, a change of EV in the Pro mode and then the shot.
So here are the results. Quite amazing really from a phone. All were shot in raw and Pro mode on the Huawei P20 Pro. Image size was set for 40MP.
When shooting I mentioned to the group that one of the interior shots in the cafe was terrible, however I did mange to rescue it with a crop and Portrait Pro.
Post-production was Adobe Camera Raw with some finishing in Portrait Pro. Complex cloning such as the Angel shot was carried out in Photoshop.
Here are the images, remember – shot on a phone.
Some great fun, even though I had limited time to shoot (I was working!). I liken the process of shooting with polaroid. Have fun with the phone, don’t expect too much and use the strengths of the equipment to get the shot. Remember perspective in close is going to be different. I could have shot on a closer portrait mode with one of the other lenses but I wanted to keep in raw. Also in post–production, even in raw, because of the small sensor size dodging shadows does bring excessive noise. Not a problem if you like high contrast images though.
Many thanks to all who came along on Saturday and Amy as well.
