How To Win In The HUAWEI Photography Contests!

Here are some tips and tricks on how to submit great photos and win prizes from those HUAWEI photography contests!

Once you go through them, you will be ready to start submitting awesome photos to the HUAWEI photography contests!

 

Low Light Photography

The HUAWEI P30 Pro Leica Camera  has a new SuperSpectrum sensor with a maximum ISO sensitivity of 409,600 for clearer and sharper lowlight photography.

You don’t need a tripod. Simply frame your shot, and press the shutter button to get your ideal photo in lowlight conditions!

Low Light Photo Example #1

Taking sunset shots has always been challenging, with the fear of losing details due to low light conditions.

However, the HUAWEI P30 Pro in its AI mode has helped me to achieve balanced shadows and highlights.

Check out how awesome the details are for both the sky and the sea. Backlight? No problem with the HUAWEI P30 Pro!

Low Light Photo Example #2

As I was on vacation in Bali, I stayed in Club Med which has Balinese architecture paired with natural elements like trees, lakes and grasslands. 

This is actually a signature spot in the resort as all guests will have to walk past this stretch of rooms to reach their own.

One night, as I was walking back to the room after dinner, I realised that the night was exceptionally dark.

I knew that it was the perfect time to take a photo using the main 40MP sensor on the HUAWEI P30 Pro as it is using a new RYYB sensor, it can actually capture 40% more light than usual.

With the help of f1.6 aperture lens, I was confident that it will turn out amazing.

Well, I was right. This photo was taken with just a tap of the shutter button. No night mode or tripod needed. It’s simply mind blowing.

For the elements in the photo, I intentionally aligned the separation of real building and reflection to be 50% on top and 50% bottom to clearly show the difference and to fully expose the reflection on the lake’s surface.

Super Zoom Photography

Thanks to its new periscope lens design, the HUAWEI P30 Pro SuperZoom capability gives you amazing reach with 5X optical zoom, 10X hybrid zoom and up to 50X optical zoom!

The camera is kept steady by optical image stabilisation (OIS), so you can take faraway shots that look sharp, with great detail!

Super Zoom Photo Example #1

Sultan Abdul Samad Building with a ultra-wide angle lens (top), 10X zoom (middle), and 50X zoom (bottom)

As one of the most iconic buildings in Malaysian history, I decided to choose this building as my subject for its heritage and cultural values.

And thanks to Huawei P30 Pro with its Ultra-Wide Lens and Superzoom function, I managed to capture a famous section of the building, as well as the iconic clock tower as my Superzoom target.

Tips: try to use the Landscape mode if you’re shooting low-rise buildings.

Super Zoom Photo Example #2

The Moroccan Pavilion, Putrajaya with an ultra-wide angle lens (top), 5X zoom (middle), and 50X zoom (bottom)

Did you know that there is a piece of Morocco in Malaysia? Tucked away in a corner of the Putrajaya Botanical Gardens lies the exquisite Moroccan Pavilion, Putrajaya known as Astaka Morocco.

The detailing leaves me in awe. This spectacular shot was achieved with the Ultra-Wide Mode on the HUAWEI P30 Pro.

The key to a clear and sharp photo is the lighting. Explore and catch a good frame with the best lighting, find your angle, and snap! Use these tips with the Ultra-Wide Mode, and nothing will go wrong!

Ultra-Wide Angle Photography

The ultra-wide angle lens of the HUAWEI P30 and P30 Pro smartphones greatly increase the sense of space, giving your landscape photos look more impressive!

Ultra-Wide Angle Photo Example

Club Med Bali has a beautiful pool deck with vibrant red umbrellas that captures the attention of all guests.

As I was having breakfast in the morning at around 9am, I noticed that the shadow casting on the ground looks very interesting and I knew it would make a great ultra-wide angle shot.

Since it was early, the area wasn’t filled with people yet. So, I quickly decided to use the HUAWEI P30 Pro to capture this scene using the ultra-wide angle lens.

This was the only shot I took as it looked great instantly. The sky was not over exposed, allowing clouds to appear clearly while the shadow areas are balanced nicely with details still intact.

I took this from the first floor of the building, hence I could cover more areas further back into the scene.

Image metadata

ISO 50 | Shutter Speed 1/1996s | F2.2 | 16mm (0.6x, ultra-wide angle

Eligible NEXT Image Awards categories

  • Going the Distance
  • Hello, Life!

 

Super Macro Photography

The ultra-wide angle lens also has a very short focus distance, letting you get in as close as 2.5 cm for macro photography!

Adjust the zoom to 0.6X to enter the Ultra-Wide Angle Mode. When you get real close to the subject, the camera will automatically enter the Super Macro Mode. Easy peasy!

Super Macro Photo Example #1

These are the wings of Malaysia’s national butterfly, the Rajah Brooke’s birdwing butterfly. It is also the largest species in Malaysia.

Butterflies have some of the most stunning colours, lines and textures that are usually unseen by the human eye.

The super macro mode on the HUAWEI P30 Pro managed to help capture such details, where you can notice thousands of tiny scales responsible for the magnificent colour characteristics of butterflies.

It’ll be good to note that this was captured handheld without any assisting accessories!

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.

– Abeden Mung at Bukit Tunku

ISO 50 | Shutter Speed 1/2890s | F1.6 | 101mm (Portrait Mode + AI Mode) |

Eligible NEXT Image Awards categories

  • #Emotion Tag
  • Hello, Life!

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!

Samsung Galaxy S10 Space Launch + Contest Winners!

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Galaxy S family of premium smartphones, Samsung launched TEN Galaxy S10 smartphones into the stratosphere… LITERALLY. Here is our full coverage of the Samsung Galaxy S10 space launch and the Be Unbeaten contest!

 

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Space Launch!

For the very first time, a smartphone gets launched into the stratosphere, and it is apt that Samsung chose their 10th generation Samsung Galaxy S10. In fact, they sent not one, not two… but TEN of them, just because the Galaxy S10 is their 10th anniversary Galaxy S smartphone.

The payload of ten Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones was hoisted by a high-altitude balloon to an altitude of 80,000 feet. At the very top, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will take a bird’s eye shot of the earth.

Samsung promises that the 4K video taken will be brighter and with more dynamic range than any other smartphone, thanks to its pro-grade camera and the new ability to record videos in HDR10+.

 

Be Unbeaten Contest

The public was invited to be part of this historic Galaxy S10 space launch by predicting where the payload will land through photos of its 4K video feed. All they had to do was drop the pin on the location they think the payload will land!

The ten participants with the closest location to the actual landing spot each walked home with a Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone! Congratulations!

Special Mention : The Other 2019 Imagine Cup Asia Teams

Having watched all 12 teams in action, we must point out that all 12 Asian teams were truly exceptional. They impressed us, not only with the depth of knowledge, but also their poise and ability to think out-of-the-box in the conception and execution of their projects.

We also admire how their projects were created with social impact in mind. This gives us great hope in the new generation of entrepreneurs, who are seeking to improve society as a whole. We are all winners with young entrepreneurs of their caliber.

Tech ARP 20th Anniversary Giveaway Week 7 – Western Digital!

Tech ARP is now 20 years old! To celebrate, we partnered up with many of the world’s TOP BRANDS to thank you all for your loyal support with a TWENTY-WEEK GIVEAWAY!   

 

Tech ARP Is 20 Years Old & Going Strong!

Time sure FLIES when you are having fun! Twenty years ago, Ken, Chai and I got together to rebrand Adrian’s Rojak Pot as Tech ARP. We were having trouble explaining what rojak was, and that pot did not refer to marijuana / cannabis! 

That was in the good old days of sawing off pipe end caps to turn into CPU water coolers, and modifying SLAB (sealed lead acid batteries) into the world’s first power bank for our PDAs (remember those?).

Those sure were CRAZY DAYS! 

Somehow, we worked our way to the forefront of motherboard technology with our seminal BIOS Optimization Guide, which later got published as Breaking Through The BIOS Barrier : The Definitive BIOS Optimization Guide for PCs.

I don’t know how I did it, but somehow, we did all those crazy stuff while I was still in medical school! CRAZY days indeed!

Over the years, we moved from strength to strength, with Ken hand-developing our own backend, and Chai nurturing our budding forums.

Somehow, we persevered and by the miracle of surviving the passage of time, Tech ARP is Malaysia’s oldest tech website!

Today, we are still pretty much the same team, with FalconeDashkenCarolyn, Hui Xin, Alyssa, Kar Hoe and Brian Chong helping us out here and there. Thank you, guys!

 

The Tech ARP 20-Week Giveaway

To thank you all for sharing our crazy journey over the years, we have prepared a 20-week giveaway contest. Actually, a series of twenty weekly giveaway contests.

We worked with many of the world’s TOP BRANDS to bring you all some goodies. We are also sponsoring some of these giveaways ourselves. Here are some of the brands that will be sponsoring their own giveaways here soon :

Predators including cyber predators are everywhere, and too often we don’t see them coming. With Kaspersky Lab you could catch THE PREDATOR and possibly some cyber predators and win some prizes too!

 

Catch The Predator With Kaspersky Lab and Win Prizes!

THE PREDATOR directed and co-written by Shane Black (whose previous directorial credits include Iron Man 3 and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) see a new group of humans take on the predators again in a setting, and with a story line that echoes many of the top cyber predator protection tips that have been shared by Kaspersky Lab.

Kaspersky Lab’s role in protecting the world from cybercriminals by hunting the cyberpredators ties in with the hunt-the-hunters cat and mouse game of The Predator’s protagonists led by Narcos‘ Boyd Holbrook and Moonlight’s Trevante Rhodes.

“Being cybersecurity experts, we want to make sure that the cyberworld is safe for everyone from all kinds of threats. Our job is pretty much parallel to the role of the good guys in the Predator movie as we are hunting the hunters to make the world a little safer from cybercriminals,” Yeo Siang Tiong, General Manager, SEA, Kaspersky Lab.

Kaspersky Lab in partnership with 20th Century Fox has an exciting promotional campaign for the “The Predator”.  A total of USD 81,000 in FOX Studio Tours in Hollywood and special edition promotional merchandise are up for grabs in Kaspersky Lab’s ‘The Predator Promo’ in the Asia Pacific.

    Customers can check if they are using an active Maxis 3G or 4G SIM card by dialing *100# or visiting their nearest Maxis Centre or participating dealer.

    To participate in the campaign, Maxis / Hotlink customers just need to:

    • Bring their active 3G SIM card to any Maxis Centre/participating Hotlink dealer to perform the SIM swap
    • Also bring proof of identity, e.g. their Identify Card or valid Passport, to prove that they are the rightful owner of the SIM card

    Once their SIM swap is successfully completed, they will be automatically eligible to participate in the RM1 million giveaway.

When Ansel is supported in game, players can move the camera to any angle they desire, apply filters, use super resolution capture and even capture in 360 for viewing in VR. Read more about these features in our article – The NVIDIA Ansel In-Game Screenshot Technology Explained.

    Ansel is supported in ARK: Survival Evolved, Conan Exiles, Dishonored 2, For Honor, Kona, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Obduction, Paragon, Snake Pass, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, War Thunder, Watch Dogs 2, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and The Witness. Ansel is coming soon to upcoming titles such as Lawbreakers. It is supported in the Unity Engine and in the Unreal Engine as a plug-in.
