Morning Run With The iPhone 13 Pro Max

It’s Sunday and while the title mentioned about a run, this is not a fitness topic but rather a photographer related one. I’m preparing for a 10K run in a month and decided to incorporate taking photos while I’m with it. Takes my mind out of the run and at the same time I will be able to test the other cameras of the iPhone 13 Pro max since I already had tested the macro yesterday.

Got to be multitasking in a way. Did not bother to watch out for my pace and distance but just run and snap for fun.

That photo above is not me running. I was behind this guy and the street photography mind set kicked in. No time to think, just snapped anyway. The photo has no edit either. Taken straight from the main camera app. Please take not that all photos are taken with the iPhone 13 Pro Max with the wide, ultra wide and the zoom lens. No edits, just cropping as necessarry.

Pictures above and below taken with the telephoto lens of the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
My first few shots along this run and the running route I usually run during Sundays. Its an eliptical road that crosses the Federal highway within Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. Decided to use the telephoto or zoom lens with this scenario as I was drawn by those 2 interesting buildings at the top of the photos. It just so happened that a maroon car passed by so decided to make it the subject of the first photo with the building still at the background. I had to stop running while taking these photos so I just want to mention that for those who wants to know.

I loved how the photo above turned out. I know I had to use the same telephoto lens which I used on the first 2 photos, i love how the colors of the glass windows kind of takes the color of the sky. then some parts of the building with shadows added more depth of the photo. The photo below shows how near I was with the building which was literally just across the street of where I took the photo. That photo below was taken with the wide camera with 26mm F1.5.

You might have seen this photo below on my previous post, this was the same spot plus the maroon car parked at the middle of the two buildings. Couldn’t help but snap once I got in front of it.

Photo above is a photo taken by the telephoto lens of the building on the photo below. I love how detailed and sharp it is and love the colour on the window glasses.

Zoomed and wide shot of this building. Showing another difference in perspective comparing the telephoto and the wide camera of the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Tropical look of the federal highway with the palm trees and other greenery in the area. With the Sheraton PJ at the background.

After seeing the photos, it’s probably pretty obvious that having the flexibility of an ultra wide angle lens and a zoom can give you different perspectives on your photos. Having that on a phone is very much amazing. After that experience with the iPhone 13 Pro Max, I’m convinced that Apple has done it well with its hardware working very well with the software. The photos are good enough that no photo editing is needed.

What can you say about the photos? Have you had an experience taking photos with the iPhone 13 series? Let me know on the comments below.
