It’s been a long while since I last travelled with a professional camera. Luckily I decided to take out my under-used digital kit for the long haul journey to Jamaica.
With a different focus to before, I discovered that there is a gorgeous multitude of photo opportunities everywhere; from sun-drenched beaches, with crystal white sand, to stunning waterfalls and prodigious amount of local seasonal flora.
I have never really emerged myself in to digital photography, so it was great to be in the company of other photographers also. So, between my Nikon DSLR camera and iPhone, I managed to clock up over 2,000 digital images, compared to the 26 rolls of black & white 35mm film I shot some 28 yrs ago on my first family trip there.
Using the Nikon on manual (more familiar to me) with a 24-70mm F2.8 lens, I spent my efforts experimenting with exposure and at times simply for quickness, I whipped out my iPhone 6s.
At my age keeping up with rapidly changing digital technology is a pleasure, because I don’t have to get too serious while I learn and play…
