3 professional photographers show what they can do with the Sony XPERIA Z3 and Z3 Compact

Sony has put the Sony XPERIA Z3 and Sony XPERIA Z3 Compact in the hands of three professional photographers Greg Funnell, Ben Thomas, and J.N. Silva, showing off what they can do with the smartphones’ cameras. The three snapped masterful shots of three cities around the world including London, Melbourne, and New York. Check out the photos below.


A look at London after dark

Greg Funnell comments, “A lot of my work focuses on capturing mood and atmosphere – and so much of this comes down to lighting. The Xperia Z3 works really well in low-light, so it has enabled me to shoot on my phone what I previously would have had to shoot on my DSLR.

“With a powerful camera built into a smartphone that’s always with me, I have the freedom to visually explore London’s vibrant nightlife – capturing the city as it comes alive after dark.”

Melbourne in miniature

Ben Thomas comments, “As I was developing the photographs for my ‘Cityshrinker’ project, I used specialised tilt shift camera lenses to create the miniature effect and it’s incredible to think that I was able to achieve the miniaturisation effect using the Xperia Z3 Compact camera.

“The smartphone easily captures images and provides a simple process that you can play about with, to create your own photos with the tilt shift effect. Anybody who is interested in the style should definitely try it out, as you can produce something that is both visually striking and endlessly creative.”

Contrast lighting in the concrete jungle

J.N. Silva comments, “The Xperia Z3’s incredible camera allowed me to really capture the expansive detail of one of the world’s most beloved and recognisable cities. During the shoot, I really wanted to communicate my daily perspective on an ever-morphing metropolis by capturing the immense scale and unique light that NYC can offer, while demonstrating the impressive, advanced features of the camera.”
