"They say" the best camera is the one you have. Since getting robbed, I only had my cell phone for the remainder of our time in Portugal. The cool thing about cell phone cameras is that they are simple. They don't have many dials or settings to distract you from making an interesting photograph. In a bittersweet kinda way, I enjoyed shooting with just my phone for a couple of days and really tried to be present in taking in the sights and sounds of Lisbon. #portugal_places #portugal_photos #portugal_em_fotos #lisbonportugal #lisbonlife #europe_ig #europestyle_
Today was a long day, I spent most of the day either taking to police, or cancelling credit cards and changing passwords. Our apartment in Lisbon was broken into this morning while we slept. Anna woke me up when she heard a sound. I went to have a look and nothing seemed amiss in the dark of an unfamiliar place. It wasn't until we woke up that I realized the balcony window was pushed open, and my camera bag, wallet, and Anna's purse were all missing. They must have rushed out after he heard me stirring. It was a chilling experience to know that someone entered our space and was just a door away from us while we slept. The thief made away with quit a lot of camera gear, a tablet, and various other things. But the most upsetting thing for me were the pictures and videos on the memory cards. I am glad I sent a few photos, like this one, to my camera to share on here, as they would've been lost otherwise. I am trying to remind myself that the good memories remain without the photos, but I'm sure it will take time to shake off this feeling. Just a friendly public service announcement, be sure to lock your doors and windows. It just takes a second, but believe me it's worth it. #london #londonphotography #londonist #londonphonebooth #nightphotography
Why do you think small-talk about the weather is so universal? Although it's been a bit cold so far on our trip in Europe, it hasn't held is back. Wish we could have been in London with the leaves still on the trees, but they made for a cool foreground in this shot of Westminster Abbey. Hope you like it. #londonphotography #london #westminsterabbey #westminster #londonfall
I think I'm turning into Fish'n Chips. After all, you are what you eat when in Rome. We are having a great stopover in London on our way to Portugal. A walk to Tower Bridge at night is a must, preferable after said fish'n chips and a pint. #londonphotography #towerbridgelondon #longexposurephotography #longexposhots #londonbridge #visitlondon
What do you think is the thing holding you back from taking better pictures? If you say the camera, I would argue that you don't know how to use what you have. Even phones can take amazing shots. Head to my website, www.soljornphotography.com and check out my recent blog post. It should help you understand the equipment you have, and help you to be a more creative photographer. Hope you have a great weekend, keep shooting. #photographybasics #learnphotography #photographytips #fallcolors🍁🍂 #fallcolor
