Dip it low or bring it up slow

Angles make or break an image – it's easy to see a pic on Instagram and feel captivated by it and not really know why. Well, a lot of its magic has to do with its framing and its angle. Whether you’re looking to capture your #ootd from a powerful low angle or your food from the perfect bird’s eye view, the Huawei nova 5T and its four cameras are sure to help.

Time the glow

Like angles, the lighting in an image impact how an image is perceived and sets the mood for your picture. You want to make sure your subject is well and softly lit in any setting, harsh or poor lighting can often make an image’s quality drop. However, with the nova 5T’s smart AI camera interface – you’ll be able to keep your images lit in any setting.

Light up the night

Anyone who’s anyone knows the struggle of trying to capture memories in the dark or under the evening sky. The nova 5T’s improved night mode helps you get the most out of night or low light shots as well. It brightens and makes your night pics crisp and insta ready – all you must do is steady yourself as your snap processes a bit.

AI in your pocket

Finding the right camera settings can be tough to capture vibrant and eye-popping pictures. Luckily, most if not all of Huawei’s latest smartphones, including the nova 5T, features an AI component to its main camera. You can switch this on to help your phone detect the situation of your image and adjust the settings automatically to snap it in its best possible way. Allowing you to capture breath-taking portraits – even from a distance and have your skies that much bluer.

The devil is in the details

If you’re looking to bring out the hidden and micro-wonders of the world – capturing it can be quite tough, however, the nova 5T with its special macro lens will help you get even closer to your subject and capture it in all its detailed glory. Snap bugs on leaves or beautiful flower shots with just one tap.

These tips and features are sure to help you buff up your insta feed and curate some vibrant and incredible pictures.
