After getting a new Iphone application to allow me to use my phone as a remote shutter, I decided to try out a self portrait. The applications works well, I am able to receive a "live view" on the phone which is connected to my laptop through my wifi connection. Unfortunately I can't control the focus from the phone..

Here is the shot.

My question is about the exposure. Due to being limited to my uncalibrated MBP monitor for editing I am unsure if my PP came out as planned. When I view it on my MBP, there is slight detail in the jacket. That was my intention. When viewing on my iphone, the detail in the jacket is gone and the head appears to be.... floating.

Could someone with a correctly calibrated monitor please have a look?

Cheers, thanks for looking.

I'm looking at it on an imac screen, and it I can barely see detail in the jacket. Cool photo otherwise.

What is the name of the app?

If I look EXTREMELY closely, I can barely make out your jacket, er, shirt, er jacket.

Same here. Calibrated screen, and the jacket looks too dark.

Ok, thanks! I'll brighten the jacket some.

The app is called dslremote. It's not cheap at $20, but I'm happy with it.

Thanks! Although if you think about it that's the price of a wireless flash :p so it's not that bad. but it's still not good for an app.

Yeah! It is just so handy. For example, this shot... I had the iphone in my right hand under the table. I could look down, see the live view, frame myself, and take the shot.
