Robert Rose only takes his iPhone to Nepal

Here at Fotogenerell we mostly deal with advanced photography. What I mean by that isn’t only the technique of capturing and editing photos but gear as well. However, from time to time we look away from DSLRs and lenses and take a look at how established pro photographers circumvent any restrictions smartphones have and how ...

Today I’d like to take you on a little review trip to Istanbul. In this impressive city I could spend some wonderful days about two years ago.
