night photo of dog sony xperia 1 IV

“My photo was taken on a Sony Xperia 1 IV – I’d only had the phone a week at that point, photography is something I have never really tried my hand at. Since purchasing the Xperia I have really tried my best to understand the manual controls, it makes for some great pictures and videos.

It was early in the morning as the sun was rising, I was stood at my back door, my dog (Akira – Japanese Akita) was looking over the wall in the back garden at a man walking his dog up the street. It looked amazing with the morning sun shining on her, I couldn’t resist pulling out my phone and getting this shot. I added background blur in post.”
