Nice capture. I assume that was a ‘proper’ camera with a wide aperture lens (f/1.4 or f/1.8?) Or maybe a short telephoto f/2 or f/2.8? I’m a sucker for shallow DoF portraits that capture eyes and just enough beyond to really draw the viewer into the frame.
I need to look up the specs on the iPhone 13 camera. As an ex pro 'tog it looks to me like a proper fast lens capture. None of the distortion of short focal lengths normally seen on smartphones with a very shallow DoF that looks very natural.
EDIT: Ah, I’ve just noticed the ends of the whiskers are blurred/missing, so there’s some fancy image processing AI going on there. Looks very convincing otherwise though
I began shooting in my pre-teen years and then in my 20s, bought a Nikon from a guy back from Vietnam, published a bunch of things, and later sold all my gear, darkroom gear and now shoot with an iPhone 13 mini (which is not a good thing). I may trade for an iPhone 13 Pro.
But if we continue this, we really need a photography thread so we do not clog up this one.
