The occasion of my purchase of a new iPhone 6s (for the camera of course and not for the mere love of idle but novel gadgetry made in the slave-labor factories of China!) spurred me to process some of the old captures in my Photo roll, and also to try out the new 12 MP camera. Herewith, a mixed bag of same for your viewing pleasure.
The feathers shown above were brought in by a student at my Creative Flower Photography workshop at Maine Media over the summer, and photographed with my iPhone on an in-class light box.
This gentleman’s tattooed arm, emblazoned with the logo “Nana” and apparently Nana’s dates of birth and death on a lighthouse, was photographed (with permission) during the recent 41rst annual Solano stroll.
I captured the late afternoon sun by the rocks at the southern end of Rodeo Beach as my son Nicky (shown in the second row in the linked photo) and I strolled along.
The two-week iris (Dietes iridioides), shown above, was captured with the new 12 MP iPhone 6s camera. While it is still a small sensor—so the constantly referred to 12 Mega Pixels are small pixels in all their mega glory—this is really incredible resolution and is (for example) considerably better than the resolution of the DSLR that began my second photography career back in May 2005.
