Good bye, sunshine –

Som mange av dere har fått med seg, så har jeg i den senere tid testet ut Huaweis siste ‘flaggskip’: ‘Mate 20 Pro’ med tanke på natur- og natt-fotografering, men – det finnes enda en ‘dør’ i denne telefonen. Den fører inn til en avdeling man kaller ‘profesjonell fotografering’ og her kan man – som i et mer vanlig kamera – påvirke bildeformat,  lukkertider, blenderåpninger, HDR, ISO, zoom, nattfotografering og en rekke filtre som i vesentlig grad påvirker det endelige resultat. Og derfor vil nok min eksperimentelle periode utvides betydelig! 🙂 Foreløpig har jeg testet ut hvordan jeg best kan fotografere solnedganger som skjer bak busker og trær og hvordan kameraet reagerer på bilder direkte inn i solens ‘øye’.
Most of you will have registered that I have been testing out the last top model camera phones from Huawei: ‘Mate 20 Pro’ with the intent to use it for nature panoramas and night photography, but – there is an additional ‘door’ in this marvel of a phone:
It leads to what I’ll be thinking of as a ‘professional laboratory’ where I – as in my regular cameras – may choose picture formats, shutter speeds, aperture, HDR, ISO, zoom, night photography and a number of filters that will have a major effect on the end product!
It’s therefore very reasonable that my experimental phase will be somewhat extended! 🙂
At the moment I’m testing out how I best may shoot sunsets through the trees or how this camera will perform if I shoot directly into the eye of the sun?
Her har solen sunket under horisonten, men fargene er eksepsjonelle!

Here the sun istself has decended underneath the horizon, however, the colors are exceptional!
Denne gang har jeg lagt inn et bilde  med et litt høyere format enn ellers. Det har jeg gjort for at dere skal kunne se at optikken her ser ut til å svikte litt?  Da jeg tok dette bildet kan jeg ikke erindre at det var en grønn måne der oppe bak skyene?!

This time – shooting directly into the eye of the sun – I have allowed a picture with a slightly taller height than usual. This I have done to show you that the lense – shooting direct into the sun – seems to play a trick on me? When I shot this frame I have absolutely no recollection of a green moon behind the clouds overhead . . .?!

    I’d like to copy these sunset in watercolor

  2. Skremmende bra kamera på den telefonen 🙂
    Den grønne “månen”, som er lens flare synes jeg bare er med på å løfte bildet. Det finnes teknikker for å legge på og forsterke dette i Photoshop 🙂

    Fine bilder!

      Takk, Terje, –
      ja, jeg er ganske så fornøyd med dette kameraet, men – så er det jo også et Leica-camera som sitter der inne. Det er utmerket til landskapsbilder, panoramabilder og faktisk også en del macro-bilder om ikke kravet stilles alt for høyt. Og i forhold til vekt-problematikken, så er det jo uovertruffent! Så snakkes det mye om batteri-kapasitet på dagens mobiltelefoner, men også her – fullstendig overlegent alle andre. Med 4200 mah så har jeg ennå aldri vært under 50%, og med en 40W hurtiglader så kan jeg bringe det tilbake til 80-90% i løpet av ca 15 minutters lading!
      Men – som jeg skriver – så presterte jeg å gå i fella på denne soloppgangen som jeg svært gjerne ville ha hatt i arkivet! I ettertid har jeg forstått at at det rett og slett var litt for mørkt der ute til at kameraet greide å finne et kontrastriktig fokuseringspunkt. Dermed svimet det bare rundt i mørket og leverte til slutt noen farger totalt ute av fokus! Muligens kunne jeg unngått dette ved å ha slått kamera til ‘nattfotografering’ og dermed åpnet blenderåpning optimalt, eller jeg kune ha vært langt mer nøyaktig med å sikre meg at kameraet faktisk fant et godt fokuserings-punkt. Problemet var jo at fargegjengivelse styrte hvilke filtere som ble aktivert og dermed også helhetsinntrykket hva angår farger! Litt tricky! 🙂
      Og så var jeg vel ikke helt våken selv heller!? 🙂

    My favourite is the first one! They are all great though!

      Thank you, Ute.
      There was much more to shoot on the morning of my recent birthday, however, I managed to overlook a serious fault on my part. Allthough the colors were next to spectacular, the pictures all ended up terribly out of focus. A fact that I didn’t notice looking at them on a 6 inch screen, but which became very visible to me getting them up on an 27 inch screen!
      But I think I have possibly managed to save one of those pictures; – enough to let you all have a sample of the colors that morning!

    All of the photos are stunning and the final photo is awesome!

  5. Great photos! My camera just does not work well for sunsets, it always washed out the colors, making them look pale.

      Hi, Steve,
      I don’t know what kind of camera you’re packing, but if this is a regular digital camera, there is a small trick you may try:
      Most digital cameras have a ‘focusing point’ – usually marked in your viewer with a small square. Look through the viewer, raise your camera to the chosen motive and find a relatively dark area with good contrasts, Press ths shutter button slowly halfway down untill your camera gives off a beeep, signalling that it has focused. Keep the shutter button at the exact level and turn your camera to the motive you want, Then continue the movement and press the shutter button all the way down ! (Picture taken)
      You may also search around with your camera – holding the shutterbutton only half way down – to find a focusing point where all colors seem to be to your liking. Then you press it all the way down!

      • Thanks so much, I will have to give that a try next time we have a nice sunset! I really enjoy all your photos.
        Steve.

        • Seenorway says:

          Thank you! Thee general idea is that a camera is a dead (stupid) thing that may be fooled to belive that the rest of the world is lit like your chosen focus point, but the there are cameras which has 80 – 100 different focusing points – at the same time – and, of course, then this little trick would be more or less useless. But – it doesn’t cost you anything to try it out? And it works beautifully with my new mobile phone (which is said to even posess an artificial intelligence. (So I’d better treat it with some respect?! 🙂 )

          • The way you described it the first time sounded just like my camera, so I will definitely try that. Might have to wait until spring though, our winter sunsets are not usually very colorful. Yes, if it has artificial intelligence you better be careful what you say!☺. Thanks again for your time and help!
