Two weeks ago I visited Cape town for the first time and it was one of the best places I’ve
ever travelled to! It’s such a beautiful city and there’s so much to do! I went to celebrate
the launch of Microsoft’s new phone the Lumia.
Along with bloggers and journalists from the Middle East and African region, we got to
meet Stephen Alvarez who’s the official photographer for National Geographic. He gave
us a lot of useful tips and tricks on how to create the perfect picture with the Lumia
phone. For instance, he showed us how to take beautiful shots by taking them from
angles you would never think of. Cape town has been the perfect place to bring my
photography skills to the next level and to create beautiful portraits of the locals.
I absolutely loved meeting and talking to the locals, they were all super kind and
friendly! Also, one of the greatest tips we got from Steven was to email the portraits we
took to that person which I did. I got a reply back from those who I emailed the images
to and they were thrilled! It really made my day when they replied back saying how
happy they were with the images! 🙂 I can’t wait to go back to South Africa and bring my
hubby with me!
