Exploring iPhone Portrait Mode

:: Tags: Camera, Dylan, Photo, Too Cool!

Well I finally traded up to the new iPhone Xs last weekend and I have to say, I am impressed. Like everyone else, I’ve been hearing a lot of hype about the new portrait mode, so I spent a little time trying it out around the house. I use to have to use my large Nikon DSLR to get nice portrait shots like this, but now… actually being able to do this with your smartphone camera… that’s huge! Here are a coupe of photos with the iPhone Xs and portrait mode turned on.

Panoramic Photography – Bermuda

I recently picked up a new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 camera as a light weight alternative to my large Nikon DSLR. I love the photo quality I get with the larger DSLR cameras, but having to lug them around all the time with an array of different lenses can be a bit much. So after looking at the reviews I purchased the Sony as a take-everywhere pocket camera… and so far I love it!!

The Sony DSC-H55 is a 14.1 mega pixel camera that also captures full 1080p HD video and stores it on SD-HC flash cards for easy uploading. One of the features I’m just starting to get use to is the ‘sweep panorama’ mode which takes several pictures as you sweep the camera from left to right and then stitches them together for you. This cuts out another editing process and thus makes shooting panoramic photography easier and more fun. Here are a couple of sample photos that I took while in Bermuda last month… enjoy, there will be more to come!
