According to research company Nielson, there are 181 million blogs worldwide. Despite this vast number, here at Nokia Connects, we’re willing to bet our bottom dollar not one had such a wide variety of phototastic posts this week. How can we be so sure? Because of the huge number of fantastically entertaining and insightful comments you, the Nokia Connects community, wrote. Here’s the five that we enjoyed the most.
Photography Innovator Of The Week: Naomi Goggin
In celebration of Nokia Connects photo week, we shined our Social innovator of the Week spotlight on an up-and-coming young photographer, and winner of the 2010 Times Young Photographer Competition, Naomi Goggin. At the beginning of 2010, the 24-year-old was working as a waitress in order to fund her passion for photography, the she got her big break. Hdrules had a intriguing suggestion after reading the story.
inspirational story for anyone who wants dreams to come into reality! and I think Nokia should promote freelancer photographers by giving them phones like 808 pureview or n8 for trial
8 ways the Nokia 808 PureView changes the way we take digital photos
The Nokia 808 PureView4 has been lavished with praise since it was launched, but what does it mean for everyday photographers like you and me? To find out, we asked Juha Alakarhu, Head of Imaging Technologies, the man who has spent 5 years developing the Nokia 808 PureView. One comment that caught our eye came from Gremlin.
I’ve been disappointed with DigiCams for fifteen years now, simply because the minimum resolution for a decent poster is around 5000*3000; you can’t get near that with five or ten megapixels. I’m really looking forward to 100MP becoming standard.
The Nokia vibrating tattoo!
News that Nokia had filed a patent application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for a ferromagnetic material that can be applied to a mobile phone users skin, as a tattoo, unsurprisingly got people buzzing with excitement. PsychoMania was so enthusiastic he even volunteered to act a guinea pig.
This is truly an innovative idea that could be a real game changer if it only works with Nokia’s. I’m not a fan of body art so being able to have an invisible one is of great interest to me. If you want a willing guinea pig count me in, just make sure its limited to my phone only, wouldn’t like to vibrate uncontrollably in public places!
Photo Mad: Why are we so obsessed with taking pictures?
In 2011 an estimated 375 billion pics were taken, an average of 150 for every person with a camera and more than at any time in history. But what makes us so snap happy? This was the question we tried to answer and asked you to do the same. We had loads of fascinating responses, but one that gave us an interesting new perspective came from saitam.
We love taking pictures because it is the closest we can get to having a time machine: Just open your eyes and your mind and look at a picture – and immediately you are in a different place, mood and era. If that isn’t incredible, then I don’t know what is.
To celebrate our photography week, we pulled together ten of the best photos ever taken on a Nokia phone. As you’d expect there were some stunning shots. Nobody captured our feelings better than Srivatsan Krishnamurthy.
Absolutely stupendous pics. Really mind-blowing precision lighting angle expression conveyed and an aesthetic sense all rolled in. Just too much too good.
