Bristol Photography Walk with Three

My boyfriend and I are regular visitors to Bristol. It's only an hour and a half car journey away from us, which is far enough that it feels like a mini break or proper trip away.

It's a city full of culture, and we love to walk around the vast display of amazing graffiti on buildings and walls.

When I was invited by Three Mobile to attend a phone photography course and walk in Bristol, I of course jumped at the opportunity! I have always used my phone to take the pictures for my blog (which is often frowned upon by proper photographers) so was keen to pick up any tips I could to help make the most of my trusty phone.

We were provided with the new iPhone to learn about and test out the new portrait mode. The Portrait mode uses the dual cameras on the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X to create a depth-of-field effect. This lets you compose a photo that keeps your subject sharp while creating a beautifully blurred background. 

My boyfriend took this photo of me, using portrait mode.

We met in a cafe on Nelson Street, which is the main strip where some of the best graffiti could be found. Rob from Rob Percy Photography was leading the class, and he was full of useful tips, such as making the most out of your lighting. 

I have never used an iPhone before, having always been an android fan. It was much easier to use than I had expected, after I had received a crash course in using it! The screen was really vibrant and bright, with a great user interface. 

We walked through a market near by, and I found this lovely greyhound called Molly! We made friends and I petted her for a lot longer than I probably should have!

We then walked to the most amazing street food market, that was full of flavours from all over the world. I really wanted to just stay there for the rest of the day! I did manage to get some awesome photos though.

 Here's my attempt at a portrait photo!
It was a really good day out, and I really enjoyed playing with all the camera modes, especially portrait mode. This hard core Android girl was swayed towards an iPhone for the first time ever.
