Nokia Talks About Bokeh Photography Using Lumia 1020

Juha Alakarhu, Nokia’s head of imaging technology along with his colleague Eero Salmelin is planning to talk about how the different components of the camera on the Lumia 1020 can each contribute to taking great pictures through a gallery of sample pictures and video taken using Lumia 1020.

First in this series, they discussed about bokeh or the use of a shallow depth of field which our current smartphones lack when compared to SLRs. Nokia Lumia 1020 allows you take such pictures with ease. Nokia Lumia 1020 Sample Image 2

It’s difficult to create photos with sharp foreground and a softer background, or the other way around. In SLR images, bokeh or the use of a shallow depth of field, is a key way to make images unique and to tell stories and extract your subject out of the background.

The Lumia 1020 gives this back. The large image sensor allows for a natural shallow depth of field. The camera also offers the option for manual focus (from 15cm to infinity), which is especially useful for close-up or macro shots. One further option is in the latest version of the Creative Studio app, which allows you to create bokeh effects in post-processing.

The end results are photos with a razor sharp focus area, but a softer focus on the periphery that makes the main focus object or area stand out so much they sparkle.
