Depth of Field on an iPhone?

How to get a Depth of Field effect on your Smartphone.

With the increase in iPhone photography (and of course there are other similar brands of smartphone) and with photographers starting to take iPhone photography seriously as an image medium, new apps to help the photographer improve there images are appearing all the time.

One of the real bug-bears with the iPhone camera is its lack of depth of field capability.  The small size of the lense and its proximity to the sensor makes optical depth of field impossible, (at least just now, who knows what lies ahead). So it was only a matter of time before an app appeared to produce a depth of field effect using digital manipulation in post-capture processing.  The app is AfterFocus, and it’s available now in the App Store for 79p.

Nikon F100. A Modern Classic !

A ‘modern classic’ is quite correct. The F100 is a beautiful camera in every respect. If you are really interested in photography, get an F100 while you still can, and shoot film. It’ll be a big step up from digital, you’ll enjoy it and learn much more about exposure values, and more importantly – how to MAKE an image rather than ‘take’ a picture.

These are my thoughts about the Nikon F100. I’m not claiming to be a “camera gurú” or any kind of expert. And certainly I won’t talk about “specifications” (you can find them all over the web).

I just love photography as hobby and as an expression. After months and months of having this Nikon model running around my head, I came across with a beautiful "almost new condition" F100 on Ebay. For just $125, it was no brainer! After months and months of having this Nikon model running around my head, I came across with a beautiful “almost new condition” F100 on Ebay.

My Iphone's photo doesn't make justice to the F100's big and bright 96% coverage viewfinder. One of the nicer features of shooting with 35mm cameras. My Iphone’s photo doesn’t make justice to the F100’s big and bright 96% coverage viewfinder. One of the nicer…
