The Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum shared a photo-feature of his pictures and him getting photographed on his Instagram on Friday.

The Crown Prince of Dubai published the images to mark the World Photography Day, which falls on Aug.19 every year.

Sheikh Hamdan shared photos from his trips from across the globe.

The first photo is of his father His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, taking a photograph with a DSLR camera.

The photo also showed Sheikh Hamdan using a professional RED pro camera. Some photos showed Hamdan sharing his photographs with some children in Africa, while others show him taking wildlife photography with a telephoto lens.  

It is noteworthy that Sheikh Hamdan regularly posts his pictures and videos on his social media accounts.

 The sport-enthusiastic Crown Prince is an avid lover of nature and animals.

His videos and photos usually garner thousands and thousands of likes and comments on social media platforms.

He has over 14.5 million followers on his Instagram account.

Hamdan’s Instagram bio reads, “Every picture has a story and every story has a moment that I’d love to share with you. Thanks and enjoy.”

The World Photography Day is an annual event that celebrates art, craft, science and history of photography worldwide.

The World Photography Day website urges all photographers to share their best photos on social media and tag using #WorldPhotographyDay.

While, on the technology front, smartphones with next-gen sensor technology threaten the existence of entry-level cameras and even DSLRs and some top photographers said that an amateur person can achieve great images on iPhones with some training and perspective.

According to professionals, the new iPhone series can capture life under any kind of lighting conditions.

In settings on iPhone 13 Pro Max, turn on the macro control and you will have a small yellow flower icon on your camera app when the macro is enabled.

“Go close to subjects and explore different textures and details. For a different take, try macro on the 0.5x lens,” a professional photographer advised.
