Granada through my phone’s lens ~ Spain


Granada Fountain at Night - Spain

As a photographer (and a geeky guy in general), I like to stay up-to-date with my equipment, and sometimes, buy the latest gadgets available to improve my craft and facilitate my job.

I recently did the jump to full-frame with the purchase of a Canon 6D, and got myself a new graphics tablet and upgraded all my editing software.

But, as we all know (right?), “gear isn’t everything“. And in the past few months, since I bought the Nexus 5 (android phone), I’ve been really enjoying walking around my beautiful city, hands free, without any gear but a phone in my pocket.

I usually take a few snapshots from different angles, and edit them later in my phone using Snapseed. Most of the time I crop them in square, in order to upload on Instagram, but also because it pushes me to think about composition differently.

So here’s a little photo gallery of the city I’ve been calling home for almost a year now, which still has many secrets to discover and places to photograph.

Beautiful stuff man. I find myself leaving the DSLR at home a lot more when I’m back in my city, so the phone becomes the default lens. Seeing the results you’ve pulled off here, though, I think perhaps I should be trying a bit harder!

Thank you Stephen!
Yes, it’s quite rewarding to leave your camera at home and just try to make the best of what you have with you. It opens up a whole new world :)

Daniel, you’ve shown once again that “the best camera is the one has with them at that time.” Thanks for highlighting one of my favourite places! I feel like I need some tapas to go with those photos … :)

Thanks!
I’ll take you to my favorite tapas bars if you come back to visit :)

Your phone is so much better than mine, you must have an iPhone 10 XL or something ;-). Seriously, it’s pretty amazing what you can do, very impressed. It’s a fantastic series of pictures, true, Granada is a great model, but what you do with it I doubt many others would be able to repeat.

Wow, amazing photos. I spent so much time in Spain on drab family holidays as a child I am reluctant to go back now I am travelling, but these photos have definitely made me realise there is so much more to see!

Great photos! It’s always fun to switch between the iphone and the big clunky powerhouse DSLR :) If you like snapseed, check out vsco as well! They’re another of my favorite phone camera apps. Sometimes I’m not sure if I love travelling or photography more – good thing they go hand in hand!

Thanks!
I already have VSCO but frankly, I don’t see what it offers more than Snapseed, so I never use it.

Lovely photographs. You’ve really captured the spirit of Granada.

I also love your photograph of the monks in Thailand on your site’s homepage. A beautiful shot.
