Recently I decided to tackle one of the items on my seniority bucket list – expanding my knowledge of photography. I wanted to explore making better use of, or upgrading, my camera (currently a simple but good point-and-shoot) and to learn more about the photo potential of my iPhone and iPad. As a frequent traveler I knew I could enhance my travel experience if I had better tools with which to capture the memories of my trips. Thus began the photo learning journey – the exploration of zoom and panorama, micro and macro lenses, exposure, focus, light, perspective and the basics of capturing a moment or producing a mini video.
