In the previous post, I showed you how you can change the look of a photo by changing your lens.
Here are some examples of trying to match the look of the 140mm photos with an iPhone.
Here are 3 shots made with a 140mm lens:
Here are photos shot from the same spots with an iPhone:
The iPhone shots had to be heavily cropped (down to around 600px wide) because I was this far in each shot:
Here are the photos side-by-side:
A forth shot was tricky. With my 140mm, I was able to capture specular highlights (bokeh balls) in the background:
but because this was created with golden hour sun, I was getting haze/flair from the backlighting on the iPhone which did not have a lens hood:
Cropped, these iPhone photos looked like this:
Because the effective aperture of the iPhone is over f/16 in ff, it could not capture the specular highlights that 140mm at f/2.8 could capture.
And it didn’t matter if you got up close to the flowers with an iPhone:
The background changed as you got closer to the subject, and there wasn’t enough shallow depth-of-field to get specular highlights, but getting close removed the haze/flare of the wide shots with the sun and sky in view, and these iPhone photos have their own merits.
So there you have it. Very different looks — each with its own merits.
Have fun experimenting!
