Many amateur photographers who don’t have resources to buy a good camera are happy taking pictures using mobile phones. The results of such attempts are quite often not that impressive though modern built-in cameras in high end phones allow you to get great shots. Now with new innovations on their way every, there is a way out for amateurs to obtain high-quality photos on their simple mobile phones, as a concept device called Slow Photography has been developed by a young Britisher.
This new concept comes from David McCourt, a 22-year old photographer from Glasgow. Slow Photography is a kind of ‘case’ for your mobile or smartphone with built-in camera. It has three lenses: fixed focal length, macro and fisheye. The very idea is somewhat reminiscent of cover-camera for iPhone.
Method is quite simple while dealing with Slow Photography: first you need to insert the phone into the special slot (its size can be slightly adjusted to the form factor of the phone). Then choose one of three lenses. Looking through the viewfinder, located on top of Slow Photography, you can carefully compose the image, and then you just need to press click! And the photo is ready.
Slow Photography is a device that could potentially lead to a small revolution in the world of photography (the author himself calls it ” as an alternate route in modern photography “). Imagine the disappointment of SLR fans, if the “humble amateurs with phones in their hands will be able to compete with them”! However, it is in the future. Slow Photography still can’t compete with cameras yet – as it yet a concept.
If this concept goes into mass production, it can find lot of fans as this will prevent people from changing their phones to have a better resolution camera.
