Mobile photography enthusiasts were treated to a Night Photography masterclass as leading global technology company, vivo, and renowned photographer and videographer, Cocoy Ponce, teamed up to host the #V19PerfectTheNightWorkshop last July 15.
Ponce, a “visual storyteller” skilled in travel and lifestyle photography, hosted a mobile photography workshop via vivo’s official Facebook page, covering topics such as tips and tricks to master night photography, the importance of exposure in low-light settings, and post-processing images taken with a smartphone.
During the workshop, Ponce showcased stunning images he took using the new vivo V19 Neo—a mobile phone that boasts of its super night mode feature which allows users to take stunning images in low light. Through his impressive shots of the otherwise normal EDSA stretch, Ponce proved that with the vivo V19 Neo and low-light photography know-hows, one could make mundane things seem extraordinary.
Among the many insightful tips he presented were the importance of utilizing the mobile phone’s different camera features, such as the super night mode and the pro mode, to produce magnificent night shots.
Ponce also reminded the virtual audience that even with the phone’s professional camera features and the user’s skills, one must always remember that photos should tell stories as opposed to plainly conveying beauty. "Photography isn't just about taking good photos, it's about capturing moments that tell a story” he said.
With its high quality Quad Camera setup consisting of 48MP main, 8MP wide, 2MP Bokeh, and 2MP Macro lenses, and a 32MP selfie camera, all bundled with a super night mode that allows users to capture stunning images in low-light, the vivo V19 Neo is the perfect midrange phone for night photographers. It is available in Crystal White and Admiral Blue colorways for only P17,999 at authorized vivo stores nationwide.
