5 photography tips for Huawei Mate 20 Pro owners

Take advantage of that triple-lens camera!

Have you got yourself a brand-new Huawei Mate 20 Pro? Lucky you! One of the best things about this flagship phone is the triple-lens camera. You’re probably ready to get snap-happy and start taking some pictures. Here are some photography tips to help you.

1) Use Night Mode in the Day

Why not bend the rules here? Go ahead and use Night Mode when you’re taking pictures in the daytime.

The feature takes a whole variety of shots in one blast and then blends them all together to make one photo.

The idea here is that the feature brings out as much light as possible in every shot, which is why it’s supposed to be used in the dark. However, when you use it during light hours, it gives you a really cool, unique look.

2) Take Rad Pictures with Bokeh Effects

When you first get a Huawei Mate 20 Pro, you’ll want to play around with some of the effects that you can use here.

One such effect is the bokeh feature, which makes the background of your pictures blurry while the subject remains clear in the foreground.

To use this effect, you need to shoot using Portrait Mode. Next, you can choose from circles, hearts, swirls and discs to alter the image. Give it a go!

3) Try the Mono Shooting Mode

There’s a mono sensor in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro but that doesn’t mean that the Mono Shooting mode is no longer useful.

You can unlock this mode by heading to the main display, then going to ‘More’ and then hitting ‘Monochrome.’

The feature means that you can take suave, moody photos in black and white. Take things up a notch by using Aperture mode at the same time. You won’t regret it!

4) Add Some Colour to Your Videos

Fancy making your videos really pop? Of course, you do! The AI Portrait Colour feature is a super cool one that you need to know about.

Basically, you can make the background of your videos grey and dull. That means that the main event – i.e. the people – in the clip stand out and look far more colourful than before. It’s a pretty neat trick to give a whirl.

5) Use Filters to Add Atmosphere to Your Videos

When you’ve filmed a short clip, there’s a quick way that you can jazz it up. Using the AI Cinema Effects, you can add some awesome filters to your videos.

Of course, there’s a whole range of filters from which to choose, including blurred ones, vintage ones, and suspenseful ones. You’re going to want to experiment here. Take your pick.
