Samsung Galaxy SII app photography
tirsdag, 3 juli 2012
Just for kicks, I wanted to share some pictures taken with my Hipsteroku camera app for my Samsung Galaxy SII phone.
The app comes with medium saturation and intense colour leaks, often adding a red teint to all the images. Every image is without scratches and placed on an old white stock frame.
The contrast is quite noticeable and the standard .jpg is a 768×768 image.
I like the app, actually. For capturing the moment, the best camera is the one you got and when being outside in natural light, I think the results are quite OK.
By the way, the app comes with extra features, i. e. alternative shutter, self timer and focus mode, just to mention some.
I’ve commented on specific issues and situations at some pictures.
Definitely one of my favorite pictures from the app photography collection.
It all ended up very fragile and painting-ish.
I don’t prefer one color to another. Often I find certain combination of colors nice, and this picture represents how colors can do this.
The Hipsteroku camera app adds a red teint and color leaks to every picture, so representing colors is not an easy task.
Faceless self portrait
One of the best shots from this collection. I find it very nice, and the sun setting creates an amazing long shadow.

Another thing I have concluded, is that the camera app must have a medium to fast shutter speed, as I succeded in capturing objects in motion.
My shoes: Fivefingers
Have been running a lot of charity running lately, these are my preferred running shoes, my Fivefingers.
I’ve also learned, that the combination of phone and camera app has difficulties when shooting indoor or in medium lit to dark surroundings.
I simply find the pictures too dark when not naturally lit, so almost all pictures taken inside must be lit by natural light coming from ie. a window.

A nice photo of this tree. Had to climb another tree to get this.
I like reflections. That’s why the photo is shot before the sun sets even more.
My lovely daughter smiling. Not at all a nice picture, but an amazing girl!
I’ve found that getting up close on an object made it very difficult to get sharp pictures.

Do you consider your phone a camera or not?
