Tips in shooting like a Pro with the HUAWEI P50 Pro and HUAWEI P50 Pocket

Manila Bulletin and HUAWEI conduct successful online session on smartphone photography

Huawei and Manila Bulletin recently hosted an online session on using smartphones to produce professional looking content.  The session also featured tips and information on using the all-new HUAWEI P50 Pro and HUAWEI P50 Pocket when doing photography or videography.

Two major professionals in the fields of photography and videography were invited as resource speakers. They shared their experiences working for a decade in the industry, along with some tips on getting the best possible shots, and they also demonstrated how best to use the HUAWEI P50 pocket smartphone in different ways so you can learn how to shoot like a pro. 

Bolichie Suzara, a photographer known for shooting incredible portraits, shared his secrets to capturing photographs with ease using the HUAWEI P50 Pocket. He expressed that one of the most important steps in photography is to start by cleaning the camera lens to ensure crisp and clear photos. This is crucial especially in phone cameras since phones are always exposed to dust particles and other elements. He also said that to maintain the natural look and lighting of photos, keep on taking photos with the flash off. The rule of thirds is perhaps one of the most common photography tricks, and rightly so. According to Bolichie, applying the rule of thirds to your shots elevates the overall composition of your subject. He explains all these and more using the HUAWEI P50 Pocket for reference.

Silver Belen, on the other hand, believes that great videos are more than high-quality visuals and stunning effects. For Silver, what makes a video great is how it tells a captivating story, no matter how short or how long. He also demonstrated how one can maximize the features available in the HUAWEI P50 Pocket for video shots, such as the slow-mo and timelapse. He also shared a personal hack to make video footage more stable. If you’re out and about shooting spontaneously and no tripods or selfie sticks on hand, a neat trick Silver suggests is to keep the phone close to your chest.

Theories and tips are one thing but the real-world application is another. After Bolichie and Silver presented their masterclass, both were given different scenarios where their advice is put to the test. They were given prompts on shooting different scenarios and shared their tips on how to make the most of it. Both were very eager to share their piece and gave the audience a glimpse of their respective experiences in the industry.

Along with that, they also expressed their love for the HUAWEI P50 Pocket. Bolichie even said how this smartphone is as good (or maybe even better) as a DSLR camera. The True-Chroma Engine feature, his personal favorite, can capture subjects in its pure and authentic colors; Equipped with True-Focus technology for crisp and clear photos no matter what angle, and with Ultra-Fine Image for capturing even the smallest of detail. With these cutting-edge features, it is without a doubt that the HUAWEI P series can keep up with other professional cameras.
