In line with its thrust to elevate the customer experience of subscribers, Smart recently launched ‘Signature Series,’ a line-up of exclusive activities that enable mobile users to connect, discover, and celebrate a much richer digital lifestyle.
First held at the Smart Store in SM City North EDSA – Annex, ‘Signature Series’ aims to gather subscribers for engaging talks and workshops featuring tech experts, content creators, and lifestyle mavens to share tips and advice on making the most of the latest mobile innovations.
The first ‘Signature Series’ coincided with the local launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Series, and featured a talk on maximizing the advanced features of the latest flagship device.
As the highlight of the session, Smart tapped celebrity photography BJ Pascual to share his favorite mobile photography tips and tricks to elevate your snaps and achieve your feed goals.
“Don’t be afraid to tinker the phone’s Pro Mode to give you greater control of your photos,” Pascual said, pointing out that exploring your phone camera’s ISO, shutter speed, and exposure levels allows you to experiment and discover your own style and develop your own aesthetic.
For perfect lighting, Pascual warned against overhead lighting and lighting from below your face as these are not flattering. “The best lighting is soft and subtle – the kind you can usually achieve with natural light through a window – this is why car selfies are popular,” he said.
Pascual also said that he usually enhances his shots with handy apps like VSCO, Lightroom, and Preview, and uses InShot Video Editor to level up his creativity on his IG Stories.
“Our phones today have made it a lot easier to take great photos – it’s really just a matter of discovering and wielding all these advanced features to suit your vision and personality,” he said. This is exactly one of the reasons why ‘Signature Series’ was conceptualized: to help subscribers discover and navigate today’s mobile innovations to enrich their digital lifestyle.
