    Hi guys,

    are there any special techniques that you have tried on your phone that you thought only a DSLR could do?

    One feature for a long time has been long exposures. Another I've been trying is a time lapse and star trails

    Post below if you know something that we can try on our phones and harness the great imaging capabilities of our lumias

    Here's one I'll bet you didn't expect. Double Exposure on a Lumia 640.

    This is a picture of my Ghost Mouse. Look carefully. The mouse is transparent.

    To take this picture, I used a tripod and mount adapter for my Lumia 640. I snapped the picture one time with my mouse on the laptop, and the 2nd time without it. I copied it to my laptop, and using a photo editor, put both pics in as layers, and made the layer with the mouse transparent.

    Pretty cool trick. You can do that with portraits of people. I'm planning on taking a family portrait at Halloween this year. Get a pic of everyone dressed up, and then take a second pic of me wearing a sheet, and put me behind them, transparent. Make it look like a ghost in the portrait with us. Should be fun.

    Here's another one. I stitched 3 photos of the exact same scene at the same time frame. The 3 photos are to show the difference in "time exposure."

    The first photo was 1/100th of a second. It was VERY dark, and there was a full moon hiding behind the clouds, but the moon can still be seen, even though it was cloudy. You can't see the clouds in the first exposure.
    The second exposure was taken using a 1 second manual exposure. You can see more of what is in the image.
    The third exposure was taken using a 4 second manual exposure, and it looks like daylight, though it is the same time of day as the first exposure.

    LOL, I had to take a second look to see why the photo was special. Then it hit me... it's all the same person.

    Very cool.
