WarTime Aleppo in Pictures – Captured with a Huawei P30 Pro

I usually add pictures of my travels directly in my photo studio or inside my articles about each destination. But my Photographic experience in Syria and Specially Aleppo was so breathtaking and troubling that it deserved to be published in a separate article of its own. After posting on my private facebook some of these pictures taken with the Leica Camera on my Pro 30 Pro, the reception was so impressive from public and private messages that I decided to share them to the world. The photos in this article were all taken in May 2019 during my visit around Syria which is summarized in my article: 5 Days Traveling around SYRIA during War Times. Being one of the first traveler in the country since 2011, I wanted to express the situation that Syrians have endured through those difficult years. Extensive details have been provided about my experience around the country, and for the purpose of clarity, I will only provide a few explanations about the photos taken in this article.

Pictures taken with a Huawei P30 Pro

All pictures have been taken with a Huawei P30 Pro with its amazing Leica Lens! The results are fascinating, showing the power a smartphone camera is now capable of. Earlier this year, I decided to shrink my gear and travel the whole year with only a camera that fits in my pocket. The Huawei P30 Pro, with its impressive 5x Optical zoom, had such good reviews that I decided to go all in with it. Here are the results.
