Smartphone Photography Competition – November 2nd 2021

As a follow up to an earlier Zoom presentation on Smartphone Photography last season, we held our own competition to allow members to practice some of the techniques and learnings gained from the presentation. The original image had to have been taken with a smartphone and a range of processing techniques could be applied thereafer as desired.

The competition attracted over 40 entries and was judged by Lorraine Robins from St Austell Camera Club. Lorraine gave a detailed description of her observations in each image as well as offering some ideas and approaches to consider. With the subject being “Open”, a range of images were submitted mainly covering landscapes and street photography, where the unimposing use of a phone can be readily exploited.

The winning image was a monochrome entitled “Lady on the Tube” by Adam Kowalczyk.
