iPhone 13 pro: Venice shot in raw

As a professional photographer, I've had the privilege of traveling to some of the most beautiful places in the world, but few can compare to the magic of Venice. The winding canals, picturesque bridges, and colorful buildings make for an endlessly photogenic city.

During my most recent trip to Venice, I decided to experiment with my photography by using my iPhone 13 Pro as my primary camera. While I'm a firm believer in the power of film photography, I was impressed by the quality of the images I was able to capture with my phone.

I spent my days wandering through the narrow streets and alleys of the city, capturing candid shots of locals going about their daily lives and carefully composed images of the city's iconic landmarks. I experimented with different camera modes, including portrait and photo modes, and occasionally used pano mode to capture the expansive views of the city.

Once I returned home, I edited my photos in Lightroom, using presets that imitated the look of film stocks such as Kodak and Fuji. The result is a collection of images that perfectly capture the charm and beauty of Venice.

Fun fact: Did you know that the city of Venice is actually made up of over 100 small islands that are connected by a network of canals and bridges? It's also famous for its traditional gondola boats, which were once the primary mode of transportation around the city.

So, take a look at the gallery of iPhone 13 Pro shots I captured on my trip to Venice and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Beautiful images and the colors (processing) are especially spectacular. For me the choice of using a dedicated camera over phone is more about ergonomics and the way I can control the image taking process, not quality (though that phone has way better camera than my Nokias). I am not familiar with iPhonen but do you post process the film look or is the style or preset already selectable when taking the image?

iPhone has some presets, but I don't like them, they are basic. I edit all images in Lightroom at iMac. So I used the usual presets that I would normally use with Sony a7iii shots. I have bought several packs for a film look, so trying different presets on different images. So basically, I handle iPhone raw in the very same way as Sony a7iii raw.
