Time’s are a changing, and so is technology.

Beautiful Fashion shot, shot with the Nokia Lumia 1020

Yes, the time is changing and with it is technology. Then again, new technology ALWAYS changes things. Recently the cell phone Nokia took its new Lumia 1020 Smartphone along with some of the best lighting equipment in the world, built by Profoto, into a studio and got some great results. I think you will be amazed.

While I don’t think we are quite yet conditioned to having weddings, fashion shoots, and concerts shot with cell phones, I think what it does add is another dimension to production. Especially when it comes to behind the scenes images and quality.

The tech and quality that is put into phones like the Nokia, with Zeiss lenses, faster processors, low light capability express even more, now than ever, how much the skill and ability of the photographer really does matter and not just the tool that he or she is using. Like I told someone the other day, “Take a chef and put him in my kitchen, and he will still make me an awesome omelet. Take that same chef and put him in his kitchen, and he is making EVERYONE a great omelet.”

Hope you enjoy the video.

    I am glad you commented on this phone Leighton. I was looking at the phone but from previous years of being a Nokia user they never give me a product that made me feel like WOW Nokia has a new phone coming out. But I am loving the new stuff tht manufactures are doing with the product. Thanks for the info.

    I’ve been eyeing this phone but been real hesitant to give it a test drive as it’s been ages since I’ve used a Nokia but you have just given me enough reasons to check this out.

    You are so right. My dad always said, “It’s not the arrow, it’s the archer.”
