A couple of weeks ago the lovely Lucy from Three Mobile invited me up to London for a photo walk. I love London, I did architecture at a-level and the buildings in London are just so beautiful. I love that I can walk past a Victorian building and then spot a super modern, space age, glass fronted office two doors down. The variety is incredible and the thing you must always remember to do is look up! The photo opps are endless.
As my Instagram is mostly the children out in the countryside, this gave me a real opportunity to indulge in taking photographs just for the sake of it. We were trying out the iphone 8 plus and after lunch at the quirky The Dickens Inn, I swapped to the Samsung S8.
We met at Bermondsey and made our way to the market at Maltby where we were given briefs to take some ask for some portrait photos of stall holders at work and the gorgeous produce available, I took the photo above of a lady selling peanut butter. She posed for one and I snapped this one just as she was turning away, I actually prefer this one! The iPhone Plus has a depth effect function which auto blurs the background making for very cool photos!
Then we went on to lunch. Stopping a lot for photos! I had some lovely ones taken of me by the very lovely May from Eat Cook Explore.
It’s meeeee! Muscling into my feed a bit more now the kids are inconveniently at school so much. 😉 Taken by the very lovely May from @eatcookexplore on our photo walk today with @threeuk I loved it. A chance to just mooch about London taking photos really was heaven for me. I love the city, the architecture takes my breath away and I have so many wonderful childhood memories there to make me smile. It was so windy though, trying to keep my hair under control was a nightmare and the cause of all this laughter!! 😂 Although I’ve had a lovely day out, I am looking forward to getting home and my pjs and sofa! 😂 How was your weekend? #pinklinker #ilovelondon
These are just a few of the many many maaaannnnnny photos I took. We were so lucky with the weather and it was a really lovely day hanging out with some like minded bloggers in a city I adore. I even had a play with the time lapse on my iPhone 7 outside the iconic Globe Theatre.
Thoughts on the phones;
The IPhone 8 Plus felt enormous but it was far than the iPhone 8 camera wise. We noticed that the iPhone 8 had none of the functions that made the Plus so cool and was pretty much the same as my iPhone 7 which was a little disappointing as I prefer the size of my phone but loved the cool functions of the Plus.
I used to be a Samsung girl but it’s been a long time since I had one and so I struggled to get to grips with it, it didn’t seem to have the ‘tap the screen to focus’ function that the iPhone does but the photo quality is very good and the screen is lovely and large. I did notice that the Samsung photos didn’t look as good when I took them, but I haven’t needed to edit them, whereas a lot of my iPhone pics have been edited in Snapseed.
