Photo by Terry Burnes (not taken with a phone)
Terry Burnes wrote the post "On Phone Photography" last Friday. As a followup to that post, here's the key for the pictures on his website that were taken with a phone vs. a dedicated camera.
Next, here are the ones that were taken with a phone:
That’s 118 out of the 199, by Terry's count.
Even if you didn't try to sort them out without knowing which was which, it might be interesting now to go look and see how much difference you can detect.
Finally, here is Terry's response to all the Comments on his post:
I want to thank everyone for the thoughtful discussion of phone photography. A few clarifications: Several commented on the phone's ergonomics. I just want to be sure that everyone knows that on most phones, pushing either volume control (up or down) will trigger the shutter. So, use the touch screen to set your focus point and adjust exposure if necessary. But then trigger the shutter with the volume buttons that feel more like the release on a traditional camera. Likewise you can plug in the simple ear buds that come with most phones and use the volume control on those to trigger the shutter. The Shuttergrip is quick to attach and remove and allows easy, stable one-handed operation of the phone, leaving your second hand free to shade the screen from direct sunlight if necessary. I sometimes use my second hand to shade the lens from sun too. I rarely take the kit pictured in my post with me. Mostly I just use the phone, but if I do want an accessory, like a lens or two or the grip, with me I just slip them in my pocket. The lenses are smaller than a ping pong ball, the grip a bit bigger.
Thanks again to Terry for sharing his experience in his post!
