I'm on the cruise ship Oosterdam out of San Diego inching into Mazatlàn, Mexico on the Mexican Riviera. In the pictures below (one finished - the rest unedited), you'll see an interesting look at the iPhone Pro Max camera capabilities. Now of course, a better camera with a full size sensor would be best...but, I've been using my iPhone for my art photography and wanted to see what I can do with it. What fits into this tiny computer/phone device is really amazing!
In Mazatlàn, cruise ships dock at a non-glamorus dock. Shuttles take you closer to a welcoming center filled with vendor opportunities. I assume that the woman in the folkloric dress works there as a vendor or part of the cities welcoming group. She has a long walk to work.
As the ship proceeded to docking, she is walking while I used my iPhone 11 Pro Max to get several shots of her. Her pace was slightly slower than the ship carefully coming in dockside. From the distance (I'm on the 7th deck of the ship), perhaps a football field away, I'm getting workable pictures using the telephoto lens...zoomed perhaps 3.5 times. Sorry, I did not note exactly how much I zoomed. The good part is, I got a "decent" shot at about 2.5 megs. The bad part is, zoomed in, she is way too pixalized.
All in all, I like what I got. I did take about 10 shots trying to photograph her in the right step, the right head turn, and the right composition. After all, I'm moving forward with a slight up and down motion, and she is walking at a brisk pace.
