La Havana Cuba
I went to Cuba cause I needed a change of scenery. I booked a ticket and a few weeks later I was in La Habana. Here is what I saw.
I used my iPhone X for all of the shots. Post production was done with snap seed. The iPhone cameras are very powerful tools. The best part is that it can fit in my pocket. I am very self conscious about carrying around a camera. Other people are self conscious about me carrying a camera. I want to catch the real deal and its a lot easier to do with the iPhone. Also, I didn’t want to look like complete tourist so not having a huge camera around your neck helps.
The biggest thing that I did was follow the light. I got up every morning before sunrise and just walked in a new direction everyday for five days. When the sun got too crazy I would retreat to my hotel where I chilled out and when the sun started to set I would go back out. Its all about the the light. I spent all my time chasing the light.

There is so much to say about La Habana. Im not even sure where to start. There is a lot of myth that surrounds Cuba. I will update this post regularly as I get new thoughts about my visit.
For the most part I was able to walk around Cuba without anyone noticing that I was a tourists until I was required to speak.
For some reason my photo edits done in Snapseed kept reseting. I am not sure if it was because snap seed needs an internet connection to save the information. It was a little frustrating to keep editing the images over and over again so I created a filter. I hope Snapseed fixes this soon.
