Around Italy with my phone lenses from SV ASSETS.

Hello and welcome back! 

I hope that you’re already making shots with the lenses that I present to you in the last blog (if you didn’t read it before, do it now LINK). This time of the year is full of adventures and movement, so I decided to show you some of my trips and memories made with the lenses. I’m taking you to the mother country of pizza-Italy! With its 50 sites of extreme beauty that are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is currently the country with the highest number in the world.


First stop is Sicily!

It is the largest island in the Mediterranean thanks to its surface area of 25,832.39 square km. Moreover, it is also the largest region in Italy. I passed about 10 days in Sicily and to make a real adventure, I went camping there (for all adventure lovers, I recommend it).

Let’s see some beauties of this island!

The Piscina di Venere is a splendid natural pool, filled with warm water, set among the rocks. To find it, you have to go to Milazzo. It is discovered at the end of a walk immersed in the flora and fauna typical of the Mediterranean. Also called Laghetto di Venere, it is located at the foot of the end of the long promontory of Capo Milazzo and overlooks the two sides of west and east. Along the way, there are views that take your breath away, just like this one. The shot was taken with iPhone X  in combination with SV Assets Wide angle lens. The lens is perfect for this kind of places because all of us want to show as much as possible and with Wide-angle we can do it!

Check out this before and after shot made with Wide-angle lens at Milazzo!

You can use the lenses to take selfies too! All you need to do is to take adapter and change the position from back camera to the front one. In this photo, I used my Fisheye lens.

One of the protected natural areas of Sicily is the Alcantara River Park. The gorges up to 25 meters high and 2 meters wide in the narrowest points and 4-5 meters in the widest points. The Alcantara river flows between lava stone which forms its characteristic riverbed. I passed there one day and it was really crazy! The cold water that flows fast and takes you with it, doesn’t leave you time to take a break in the journey. Don’t miss it if you are in Sicily!

The next stop is Rimini! A place where Federico Fellini was born, one of the greatest directors in the history of Italian cinema, 5 times Oscar winner. If you are a lover of sandy beaches (it extends for 15 km along the coast of the Upper Adriatic) and full-time fun, this should be the destination for your vacation. Here you can see an amazing “golden hour” shot made with iPhone X in combination with Telephoto 60mm. Isn’t this bokeh effect great?

We’re moving to Toscany, Elba island. After Sicily and Sardinia, it is the third-largest island in Italy and it is part of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park. Elba is also famous as the site of Napoleon’s first exile, in 1814-15. Elba was my choice in the last 3 years because is full of the places to explore. And guess what? I went camping there also! Great company and tents are all you need to live unforgettable days all over the Elba. Just like in Sicily, for this shot, I used my Wide-angle lens.

I know that when someone mentions you Italy, the first city in your head is Rome. So stay tuned to read my story from Rome and of course to see how I used SV Assets lenses there! 

Till the next time,
