iPhone 13 pro: Venice shot in raw


To be honest, I am not a big fan of phone pictures. This is most likely because I work as a professional photographer, and quality for me is one of the most important things in my art. But the better phone cameras become, the more trust I place in them. This means that I am no longer using my professional cameras for daily family pictures or short trips abroad. In 2020, I was fully devoted to 35 mm film, all my daily images were taken on film, and in the end, I wrote a book on analog photography, that included a lot of images from my trips to different amazing locations in Italy. However, the film became too expensive, and as an alternative, the phones reached a pretty decent level of quality, so I could give it a go. After very deep research, lots of YouTube videos, and reviews I decided to go for iPhone 13 pro (for the last 7-8 years I was devoted to Blackberry phones and never cared about the quality of the phone camera). The first trip that I had right after getting "armed" with a decent phone camera was to Venice. I decided to shoot RAW while constantly switching between Portrait and Photo modes, also used Pano mode from to time. All images were later edited in Lightroom, I used presets that would mostly imitate the film stocks, such as Kodak and Fuji. Have a look and enjoy!

P.S. I think the availability of super wide, wide, and portrait lenses in one device makes life much easier.
