Despite the progress in smartphone photography in recent years, there is one question that still divides photographers: can we have enough of a mobile to make high quality prints?

Julien Grondin, professional photographer and reader of iPhon.fr, gave us some answers with very telling arguments: 3 photographs of the Milky Way, at night therefore, taken with his iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The detail of his shot

Julien Grondin was kind enough to detail the procedure that allowed him to achieve these magnificent results:

  • Choice of location: the photos were taken in Auvergne
  • Grip material: iPhone 13 Pro Max and tripod

  • Shooting : night mode activated on the iPhone and set to 30 seconds exposure. For each photo, approximately 10 photographs are recorded. This so-called “stacking” technique in astrophotography (photography of the night sky) makes it possible to limit noise and improve the visibility of certain details
  • Size: the photographs were recorded in ProRAW
  • Retouching: in Lightroom and Photoshop, work on contrasts and colorimetry was finally done

We can only admire the result, which shows that the iPhone, and more particularly the latest 13 Pro Max model, is a very good camera. The results it can deliver, both day and night, are impressive. Provided all the same to know a little bit, especially for post-production work.

Thanks to Julien Grondin for sharing his experience. His work can be found on his instagram.

Are there any other professional and/or enthusiast photographers among you who work a lot on the iPhone? If so, with which model?
