Tórshavn by mobile phone

In September I’ve spent 9 days in the amazing Faroe Islands. I have been travelling through the country, shooting some amazing stuff with my DSLR. But with modern technology so advanced and available for everyone it made sense to take some snapshots with my Iphone. Like basically everyone would do right?

Below is a selection of shots that I’ve taken with my Iphone, in the capital city of the Faroe Islands. Tórshavn. You can easily go about capturing this small, but super cosy and amazing city with your mobile phone. A great picture doesn’t necessarily need to be taken with and expensive and professional camera.
Not at all. (technical) Quality matters, but not always. In my eyes, composition and “feel” is key to a great photograph. Tórshavn is so pretty, and photogenic that you will find lots and lots of good compositions and perspectives to snap a very nice photo with your mobile phone.

Have a look at the ones I took!

Lots of cozy coffeehouses to take a break, and enjoy the city, staring through the windows.

Thank you for checking out my images. Keep in mind, all these shots were taken with an Iphone. They were edited on an Iphone as well. With the VSCO app. That lets you apply certain looks and feel to a photograph, and gives you control over some basic edit tools as well.

It also supports RAW files. So you can also transfer your DSLR images to your app, and edit them on your phone, on the go, very modern, very nice.
