It’s been a while since I’ve done a entry that’s just about photography on the Lumia 1020. It’s not that I’ve stopped taking photos, but I’ve settled into a posting them in a places with a built in photographic community. You can regularly find my pictures on my Flickr account and my Phonetogaphs Blog and in the Fhotoroom community.
The picture above is one of my favorites from this device. I love the contrasts of color and texture.
OK, let’s dive into some more…
Yeah, yeah, yeah…the irony of this is not lost on me. It’s a RANT, I don’t care!
You know the nuts and bolts: Shot with Nokia Lumia 1020 and Edited with Sony Vegas Pro. The whole thing is stream of conscious from me, Jeff Daly.
Enjoy and BE POSITIVE…OR ELSE!!
If you’ve been following along, lately I’ve been highlighting my experiences with the Nokia Lumia 1020. I’ve been so enamored with the device that I almost forgot about Movember. Movember is a time that not only gives men the excuse to grow a ‘stache, but it also promotes men’s health awareness as it pertains to different kinds of cancer. That’s a good looking bit of exposure for a good cause, huh? I thought so too.
I had grown my facial hair for a character in another video project and I decided to cut it off except for the moustache. I also documented the whole things with the Lumia. See, I can multi-task, especially when both tasks are filled with insane amounts of goodness. OK, Let’s expose My MOvember!
This modern piece of photographic genius is capable of taking amazing pictures. I was thinking that there had to be more. With the fad of InstaGrime, it appears that “more” is actually “less” and retro.
Let’s dig in and see a couple of examples.
I can’t take all of the credit for my pictures that you see here on the left. Sure, the look, wardrobe and character driven attitude are all mine, but you have to give credit to the artist on the other side of the lens. Oh, I almost forgot that I am the photographer too.
Yup, this is a set of “selfie” shots. Of course, I had to take the selfie to the next level and thankfully there are some Windows Phone apps to help me out. I also used a bit of lighting and a tripod. Sometimes you need more than a straightened out arm and a good guess as to where you’ll be in the faming. Maybe I didn’t get full-on selfies. Maybe I’ll call them “helpies”. Ya know…cuz I had help.
Whatever you want to call them, let’s see some more and introduce you to the apps involved.
Happy Friday Everyone! I apologize, in advance, but sometimes I just need to get some things off my chest. One of those times is now.
I recently had to have low flow toilets installed in the building that I manage. Sure they’re touted to “save water” and thus, the environment, but is the full story more complicate and dare I say “messy”???
As is the case lately, this was shot with the Nokia Lumia 1020 with the Cast & Crew of 1, in my apartment. Enjoy!
It’s a great thing to have a cutting edge photography technology in your pocket. The creative freedom of having a camera with you everywhere is amazing and it has kind of been my focus while testing out this Nokia Lumia 1020 device. This Windows Phone really delivers in imaging.
Earlier today Nokia released a new app called Refocus. So I stepped away from usual creative thinking and have started pondering how I might use it to expand the scope of my photographs. Please note that the Refocus app is for PureView Nokia Lumia devices with the Amber update.
Today, I just went out to the sundeck and fired up the app to see what it could do. All of the images above are from one Refocus shot. Let’s check it out.
My mission: To put my #NoExcuses manta to work. Last week, I wrote some mini-short scripts and now I wanted to shoot them. I was having trouble scheduling with anybody to help me, so I picked one that I thought that I could shoot on my own and I just decided to do it today.
It took a good portion of my afternoon, but I like how it turned out. I was able to show off the Nokia Lumia 1020’s HD capability. I was also able to (hopefully) show a bit of the funny that exists in my head. Most of all, I just got something done and that is so important in creating the habit of creating.
OK, let’s jump into it. I’ll give a few tips along the way…
I took a little walk and thought that I’d share the Pacific Design Center exterior with you. Enjoy the campus of modern buildings and fountain in a garden style setting. Obviously, I used the Nokia Lumia 1020 to capture it all. It’s all handheld and I wasn’t being particularly careful so the Optical Image Stabilizer was working hard. Also, you can see that the microphone works really well…almost too well for standard host-style speaking, because it picks up everything.

I love Chinese and Thai food. There’s something about rolling into a Thai restaurant and getting some Pad Kra Prao (Mint or Basil Leaf Chicken). It’s spicy, complex and delicious, but I’m getting away from the point.
I saw recently on Facebook that you could take a take out container and unfold it to be used as a plate. It was on the Internet, so it must be true or not be true. I don’t know what to believe. They made it seem so easy, so propped the Lumia 1020 onto a tripod and went at it with NO DIRECTIONS. Yup, I’m crazy like that.
Of course, I asked for a extra container so that you wouldn’t have to see the messy interior of my leftovers…or maybe it was so good that I didn’t HAVE any leftovers and I didn’t want to be judged for my very American appetite. Get off my back, people! Just watch the vid. Geesh…
