Lumia in Venice revisited

Planning a trip to Venice and need some inspiration? Want to see some amazing shots taken with our Lumia smartphones? Eager to get your hands on a Lumia 930?

If you answered yes to any of the above, read on…

Every now and then we invite select lifestyle media for a Lumia adventure somewhere in the world. Following on from our #LumiaInLapland event back in March, last week we found ourselves in breathtakingly beautiful city of Venice in Italy.

After indulging in some photography tips from the National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez and the head of imaging technologies at Microsoft Juha Alakarhu, we were ready to go and explore the city of canals, water, colors, bridges and masks, capturing it all with our 20-megapixel Lumia 930 smartphones.

To sum up the #LumiaInVenice experience, Stephen Alvarez said:

“Venice is a great city to explore with a Lumia. The city is so well seen, but the smartphone opens up perspectives that would be impossible to capture with a conventional camera.”

It’s also important to travel light in Venice. You are constantly hopping on and off of water taxis and walking down narrow, crowded streets. Having a single device that is my phone, helps me navigate and takes great photos makes exploring the city easy.”

We invite you to relive the best moments with us with this #LumiaInVenice Instagram photo gallery. And for a chance to win a Lumia 930, do let us know which one is your favorite picture and why in the comments below.
