The details of this 81 megapixel image of the moon is jaw-dropping — you can see everything.
Best of all, it works incredibly well as an iPhone or iPad wallpaper. The way it lights up the lock screen — especially on the iPhone — is stunning. In effect, it looks like the iPhone progressively lights up the screen, creating a fascinating effect with the lit moon that isn’t replicated the same in other types of images.
I’m currently on holiday in Lanzarote, which is one of the Canary Islands. It’s technically part of Spain, but it’s closer to the western coast of Africa.
We spent all of today travelling around the south side of the island, and ended in a place called El Golfo, which has some very rocky beaches. It resulted in some interesting photos that I thought would look good as mobile wallpapers, so I spent some extra time seeing what else would look good, and I came up with 12 different options!
I visited the British Museum about 10 days ago, and my iPhone XS was super fresh in my hands, so I decided to take a bit more effort into the photos I took while I was there.
Well, after looking back at them, the three photos that I like the best have nothing to do with what the museum actually holds inside. But instead, people, and the inner architecture of the museum.
Also, you’ll noticed that all of them are black and white. I nearly always shoot in black and white, and if not I’ll usually apply the Noir filter afterwards. I just find everything looks a bit better without the distraction of colour.
This is a year’s worth of images I took of the moon using just my iPhone 7 through a telescope. The first time I tried it I was amazed by the detail and quality of shot that was possible on a phone, so I set about taking pictures at a various stages throughout the lunar cycle.
I was having a look through this collection of photos, and I was impressed with the level of variety. Even if we are tidally locked, and only ever see the same side, there’s quite a bit of detail to look at.
A while ago, I was experimenting with my (very) old DSLR in my garden, paired with a pretty cool application – DSLR Assistant. I decided I wanted to check out time-lapses, especially trying to capture one at night.
Well, I was just on Vimeo, and I noticed that it was the only ever video I have uploaded!
So if you’re interested in seeing how it turned out, then the video is below. The whole timespan of the images was about 75 minutes, and it was taken with a Canon EOS 1000D with a cheap 50mm prime lens.
