I don't know whether it's appreciated because there's already a [url=http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1053150-The-Creative-Photography-Thread-If-It-Ain-t-Bokeh-Don-t-Fix-It]Photography Thread[/url] but all I see in there are shots captured with a DSLR and since there are real competitions for having the best picture shot with a mobile phone I wanted to give my idea the chance of opening a thread at Facepunch. Actually I own one myself but you don't always have a DSLR when you need one so a Mobile Phone beats a DSLR in terms of mobility. Perhaps some people at Facepunch are willing to show the haters that the only thing you really need in order to make great shots is an artistic eye! Those shots were made with a Nokia 5800 Xpress Music. It only has a 3.2 Megapixel sensor and f/2.8 / 3.7, so yeah, technically it really sucks: [img]http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/200184_1933237969549_1200292372_32380244_1868165_n.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/010220117445cyb.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/27102010044tcft.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/28102010047vhw8.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/28102010052de94.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/07022011764ccsa.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/110120113658hht.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/111220102594gze.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/25122010299sigy.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/260120116392hku.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/20110325-2503201111697n0q.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/20110325-250320111166h7re.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.abload.de/img/20110326-260320111198l7mx.jpg[/img]
Nice idea, I'll see if I still have any of my phone shots around.
I think this thread didn't need to be made, IF your a good photographer it doesn't matter whether is a mobile phone or an SLR, it will be a good photo if you know what you're doing. (but SLR's help a little)

I'll post some Urbex shots off my phone later today.
Only one that looks ok: [img]http://www.crembo.eu/nuotraukos/IMAG0053.jpg[/img] HTC Touch Diamond 2 aka Topaz (5MP f2.8)
A repost and a new one, both from an iPhone 4. (5MP for anyone who doesn't know) [URL=http://img191.imageshack.us/i/img0103bs.jpg/][IMG]http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/6944/img0103bs.th.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://img687.imageshack.us/i/img0313iq.jpg/][IMG]http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/285/img0313iq.th.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
Really like the idea, but i don't have a way to get the pictures on my phone to my computer. :saddowns:
I attach them as an attachment in Gmail on my phone, then save them from there on my laptop.

a little satire on the fact of mobile cameras, in this case the iPad [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oZtujFhMwA&feature=relmfu[/media] had a heart attack when he threw the camera but the hollow rubber sound gave it away :v:
[QUOTE=TedStriker;28842932]I really like the colours.[/QUOTE] Thanks. As I've said before in another thread (wherever I posted it), it's completely unedited, straight from the phone.

went drinking today and actually got into a discussion starting with a statement from my friend about how my camera does a lot of the work for me. Instead of just arguing against, I posed a thought for him to ponder on about how subjective proper art is; how it doesn't matter what the camera is, but what the artist does. Sure, you can tell a child "go to this place at this time and use these settings to take a picture of this thing", but even then the child will not come back with the same photos an artist, a proper photographer would. Using a crappy camera, say, my phone, a good artist could come up with anything and others would say "wow that's nice", but then again art is subjective; a famous artist could slap paint on a canvas with no meaning and yet people will buy it and talk for hours about how deep it is, and your mom can take the most expensive camera known to man, take a picture that means everything to her, and people will judge it like it's just another snapshot from a disposable camera. I took a shot not even thinking about it, of the glass sitting in front of him and asked him to think about what makes it artistic, and what makes it "just a picture I snapped ten seconds ago of your beer". [img]http://gyazo.com/418ce563f66a8bdef366eed315bcbe07.png[/img] What do you guys see? I felt a critic or an onlooker could gaze at it and talk about the juxtaposition of the warm and cool lights to the sides, the warm vs the cool reflections in the parts of the glass with and without liquid, of the woman in the class and the ruffles of the napkin representing some emotion I would never have thought of. Art is in the eye of who views, but who is to say that there isn't more human element to mechanical in the process of taking a photo that's even a [i]little[/i] worthwhile?

damn that's a nice phone camera also now that I'm not all drunk and philosophical, here's a panorama I did with my cell. 180 degree view, though it doesn't look it. [img]http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4110/5220415117_5c135b5962_b.jpg[/img]
Liking that Panorama, here's one I took from mine using the awesome automatic panorama mode (chose this one because I like the lens flare to the left), no photoshop or post editing involved. [img_thumb]http://filesmelt.com/dl/2010-09-07_16-42-30_757.jpg[/img_thumb]
Decided to try out my phone camera as well lads, (HTC Desire, 5MP): Original & Edited (think i added too much split tone): [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/latircoleetti][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5304/5568618676_c20d6b39db.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/latircoleetti/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5060/5568070497_f996229e85.jpg[/img][/url]
I can't be bothered to edit my phones photos as they usually look fine SOOC. Motorola Milestone XT720 (Motorola are shit on the software side, and don't bother upgrading android, but the hardware is great), 8.0MP, f2.8-(?) 28mm lens, xenon flash, laser+lamp assisted autofocus, etc.

I actually just posted a bunch of my cell phone photography in the other thread. Had no idea that this thread even existed. Anyway, here is the link to my post: [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1053150-The-Creative-Photography-Thread-If-It-Ain-t-Bokeh-Don-t-Fix-It?p=28875645&viewfull=1#post28875645[/url]

[QUOTE=TedStriker;28889448]I like most of your perspectives but was it really necessery to edit them THAT much? o.O[/QUOTE] The ones in that post I didn't edit at all. It was an in-house app edit that Vignette did.
