Nokia Lumia 925 close-ups by the Lumia 1020
It was just too tempting this morning - the bright light of the morning sun through the kitchen window was just begging me to make some shots. A great occasion to try to make some close-ups of the Nokia Lumia 925 - with the Nokia Lumia 1020.
Why? Because I've read that the Nokia Lumia 1020 shouldn't be very good at making close-ups, and because I really love the design of the "Catwalk". I always carry the one I can still use (waiting for DHL to pick it up) in a white silicone cover to protect it, so I hardly get to see its beauty. Moreover, this white plastic cover has taken just about all colors of the clothes I wear, so it looks like it's been in a fire or something.
The shots I show you here are unchanged, resized versions of the actual 5MP close-ups, no crops of the 5MP or 34MP originals (no tripod by the way). So here it is, my selection of the close-ups of this off-white beauty, captured up close and personal (on a large piece of white paper), with the Nokia Lumia 1020 :-)
Quite a beautiful design, don't you think? I just installed Nokia Pro Cam on the Lumia 925. Don't forget to do the same if you own one. And after your Lumia 920 got the "Amber" update, you may (and should) do the same.
Nokia Pro Cam is a fantastic (and free) application and I'm thrilled that Nokia isn't saving it as a "killer app" just for the Nokia Lumia 1020 (and frustrate so many earlier adoptors). It will really help you to get more out of your device, I'm sure.
And just to show you what it looks like when you've used a white silicone cover for too long (and maybe to give some people the impression you're just using some old smartphone :-)
And yes! All these original close-ups are on Flickr too!
