It's probably apocryphal, but "f/8 and be there."

Oversharpened garbage

I am in awe at what the camera on my $70 phone can do, and these may have been shot on an iPhone, but they were all most certainty shopped.

Those are beautiful photographs. I hope the get some recognition somewhere.

I find that the more meaningful photo contests are exhibited in galleries where you can see what the artist intended rather than a teensy software-filtered representation of it on a screen that may or may not be calibrated.  Shoot Velvia on a 120 roll, drum scan it and print at gallery size and then compare it to these printed out at the same dimensions and we'll see how they hold up.

EIP if Farkettes want to show the BIEautiful things they can photograph with their phones.

Unobtanium: It's probably apocryphal, but "f/8 and be there."


I believe the quote came from a National Geographic photographer - "125 @ f8 and be there"

Yup. Camera phones are great for spontaneity, and "sharing" on screens that can't resolve better than ~140ppi, but that's about it.

The original is supposedly attributed to Ascher Fellig ("Weegee"), but there is disagreement about whether he actually said it. But whichever, it makes the same point. If we're going to get a good, or great, photo, we fisrt have to get out of our parents' basements.
I generally have my "real" camera with me, but I do use my phone sometimes, too. A lot of phone cameras are like firearms: they shoot better than I do.

The way I heard it from a photojournalist was "f/11 and be there."  This was in a camera store in Raleigh, N.C.

Strange how a large percentage of those photos feature poor people/places.

Kind of the Rotten Tomatoes of photography.
