When The Sun Gets In Your Eyes

Recently I tried to take a photo of the Burj Al Arab in Dubai using my iPhone but the old issue of screen glare reared it’s ugly head making it almost impossible to see what was on the screen. To get around this I took my Zacuto Z-Finder 2.5x from my Canon and placed it onto the screen. Boom. Problem solved, not only was the sun blocked out from the screen but a saw a magnified image. Now it’s not the perfect solution and you do have a bit of a balancing act to contend with between holding the phone, Z-finder and trying to hit the all important shutter button but with a bit of practice I got the shot I wanted.

The image was processed using the BestCamera App on the iPhone using Jewel and vignette filters along with simple white frame. Job done!
