This is taken with an iPhone

You have seen the photos, with the tag: “This is taken with a mobile phone”. Usually followed with a few comments like: “Really”, “Wow”, “Amazing” or something like that. My reply to comments like that is to point out that an iPhone camera or almost any other mobile camera is actually equally good or even better than a lot of the digital cameras we had a decade ago, or even just 5 years ago. And those photos were often equally good.

Now the saying goes that, the best camera to use is the one you bring with you. And as you all know. Your mobile is with you at all times.

I took this photo before christmas, but I like both versions of it. The editing has also been done on the iPhone. I used “PS Express” from Adobe to edit the photos.

Stairway to heaven

This is another photo from my travels as a consultant in Oslo. It has also been previously published on Instagram but I thought it might benefit from a different readership. If you happen to visit “Handelshøyskolen BI” in Nydalen you might find this staircase. I liked the shape and the light.

The big silence

Black and white in the snow

I have been a lousy blog author for a few months. I do have a lot of photos on instagram though so I thought I should share some of them and tell what I done to those photos.

First out is this little black and white from an area a bit further north called “Trollheimen”. During the christmas my girlfriend and I visited my “in-laws”. This is one I took with my Canon 5D mark III and the excellent 24-70 f 2.8 L II lens. I have gone bananas with the contrast, shadows and highlights in Lightroom though.
