Nokia N8 Gallery: Street Photos Set 1

The first Nokia N8 Gallery last month proved to be a popular posts here since it showcased the imaging prowess of the N8. It’s always comforting to know I have a capable camera in my pocket so whenever I’m out on the streets I take the opportunity to take photos when I see some interesting subjects. I think I’ll be doing a compilation of Nokia N8 shots every end of the month. This month I’ll be featuring a set of street photos that I liked. Took them colored but just converted them to Black and white via adjustment layers then re-sized.

My 15 Favorite Nokia N8 Images Gallery

As most mature photographers would say, “The Best Camera is the one you have”. This is more true now when Mobile Phone’s imaging capabilities are getting powerful and closer to replacing a common point and shoot cameras. I’ve had my Nokia N8 for more than half a year now and am very much impressed with its 12mp larger than usual camera sensors. As much as Nokia is currently having multiple personality disorders with their Operating System of choice, we can’t deny Nokia produces phones with mean hardware especially on the multimedia department. So here I’m sharing 15 of my favorite photographs taken with the Nokia N8.

Dispatch: NatGeo Earth Day Run 2011

Earlier this morning I joined the 10k category for National Geographic’s Earth Day Run 2011 at Bonifacio Global City (BGC). There were more than 10,000 participants on this run under the collective category of 3k, 5k, 10k and 21k. Finished the 10k route in over an hour and 9 minutes which I think is good enough since I didn’t really have proper preparation prior the run. It was a well organized event with fireworks signaling the start of the run, marshall are in the right positions while water stations are there when you need them with enough water for everyone. The run would also help build the Mind Museum at Taguig. Here’s a quick shot I took during the run using my Nokia N8.
