Smartphone Picture of the Week 28/08/21

August 28, 2021

Welcome to this week’s Smartphone Picture of the Week, where we select and share our favourite smartphone photograph taken by our online followers.

Charlie Jobson

This week’s photograph is by Charlie Jobson using Samsung A21s.

“I had photographed this window in an outbuilding at Howick Hall, Northumberland, a few times from different angles using my Sony A6500, but on this day I decided to use my Samsung A21s phone, knowing that it is very good at capturing light like this. Indeed the only editing I did in Snapseed was to correct converging verticals. The version I posted on Instagram also had black borders added because of Instagram’s limitations on vertical format shots.

I have been interested in photography since my teens in the 1960s, dabbling at first, then starting to take it a bit more seriously in the late 1970s shooting all kinds of subjects, mainly on slide film, and now I love the freedom that digital photography gives me to capture and share my personal view of the world around me.

I share photos on Instagram @charlie.jobson and Photocrowd in the hope that others will appreciate them.”
