Definitely have to focus on the eyes

Picture 1 - decent lighting, but can't really see the eyes. Picture 2 - in one of his winter fleeces - and there are those giant brown eyes!

Pretty as a picture. Good Job! Photo software would probably lighten and remove shadows in the first picture, highlighting the hair and making those pretty brown eyes show up.

I'll add: Using a Flash when shooting outdoor pics often brightens the eyes, face and hair and works well during overcast days.

Do you take your photos in RAW so you can make those adjustments? Now that I rarely use a real camera and rely so much on my phone I find that a lot ends up blown out.

I'm a hobbyist photographer and mostly take pictures with a camera, shooting RAW instead of JPG and have photo editing software.

However, the new iPhones now take pictures that are as good or better than some cameras and provide photo editing software. You can crop, brighten and a bunch of other things I haven't tried. JPGs can been adjusted.

I'm amazed at how good iPhone pics can take and have started using it more since I upgraded. I don't know anything about other phone cameras.

My biggest problem is the lighting is poor in part of my house and my Havanese is gold/red. The pictures in those areas always have a terrible yellow/orange cast. Itís too much for the iphone software and I have to make many small adjustments to the channels in Photoshop, which sometimes isnít worth it for a photo thatís mediocre to begin with. I enjoyed photography in the past, especially when my kids were little, but my interest has shifted to other forms of digital art. Seeing all of these great pictures is fun though, it makes me want to dig out the real camera and play around taking pictures of Sundance once of these days.

I am usually so disappointed with phone photos that I almost always use one of my cameras. With my DSLR’s I always shoot raw. I find that the algorithims for JPG in my m43’s are good enough that I rarely need to... But they also can’t handle motion indoors.

The photo of Pixel that started this was a phone picture, and it worked because she was still, and there is a reading light by my bed that I was able to focus on her for some soft light. (and the phone was beside me, while a camera was not)

Yes, I have a couple of friends who are just amazing in terms of what they can do with their phones. They both have a very good eye, and they use the camera (and the editing software available) often enough to get the best out of both. I donít practice with the phone because Iím so much more comfortable with my cameras. So my iPhone photos are often a disappointment to me.
