Portrait Photography

The HUAWEI P30 Pro has a Time of Flight (TOF) camera that is used for portrait photography. It sends out pulses of near infra-red light to accurately map the subject and separate it from the background. This allows for a more accurate and natural bokeh effect.

Just select the Portrait mode, and make sure your subject is less than 2 metres away, for the ToF camera to work properly.

Portrait Photo Example #1

Shadowed areas are well enhanced on the portrait mode using the HUAWEI P30 Pro thanks to the AI mode which helps me capture great portrait shots when it detects a face.

I’m shocked that even under harsh sunlight, I can still capture the Pakcik’s face clearly even from a low angle shot.

Portrait Photo Example #2

This shot was taken earlier this month during Street Meet Johor, a photography event that gathers photographers and models that I organised.

I saw this event as an opportunity for me to test out the new HUAWEI P30 Pro to take some portrait shots and I wasn’t disappointed.

The trick for me is to ensure your portraits look as natural as it can be, you can adjust the Beauty Effect to lowest level possible to reduce the glowy effect.

Also, natural lighting is always the best choice.

Backlit Portrait Photography

The HUAWEI P30 and P30 Pro camera features the AI HDR+ technology, which uses AI algorithms to identify elements in the frame, like faces, buildings and the sun, to create an exposure map and intelligently apply it to minimise blown highlights while brightening shadows.

Just select the HDR mode, and wait for the focus on the subject to lock in, before shooting. It’s that simple!
