Switzerland

Saturday 21 May 2016

Sadly we needed to go to a family funeral in Switzerland, where some of my wife's family lives. In between visiting family we managed to see quite a bit of this beautiful country.

These photos are all taken on my phone (a budget Microsoft 640), so the quality isn't as high as I'd like. But contrary to what some people think, photography isn't all about the camera. Picking what to shoot and composing the image are all about the photographer. Even on my phone I was using all the controls I had available to get the best image I could and I've post-processed the images to get the best out of them. So what do you give up using a phone compared with a camera?

On the other hand, the best camera is the one you have with you - and a phone is a lot more convenient than a bulky DSLR. Many phones have cameras better than mine which will reduce the disadvantages I've outlined above. Anyway, that's enough about the camera - here are the photos of beautiful Switzerland.
