Transform Shots and Be The Portrait Master: Game-Changing Mobile Photography Tips using realme 12 Pro+ 5G 

realme goes to Baguio on March 23 to roll out the next leg of Portrait Master Academy

Capturing moments on camera has become integral in this digital age. For many, taking photos is more than just preserving memories; it’s about sharing them with their loved ones and followers online. Last March 16, realme kicked off the Portrait Master Academy with a photowalk in Escolta, Manila. This was led by a commercial photographer, Stephen Capuchino, who showed the Squad how they could be portrait masters with the realme 12 Pro+ 5G.

Capuchino also shares the latest tips on maximizing the flagship camera technology of realme’s newest device:

Capture movie-like images

The realme 12 Pro+ 5G allows users to achieve next-level portraits. Simply choose an attractive or eye-catching outdoor background and shoot during the golden hour right before sunset or just after sunrise. After getting that perfect shot, elevate the tone and feel of the photo with realme’s Portrait Mode, and makes shots more appealing by applying movie-like filters co-created by Oscar-winning cinematographer, Claudio Miranda. These filters are also present when using Photo Mode and Street Mode. 

Choose between the following filters, based on iconic Hollywood movies:

  • Journey: This dream-like tone is inspired by Life of Pi and features yellow tones and high-contrast colors
  • Memory: The cold tones and low-saturation colors evoke a calm and capable vibe similar to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  • Maverick: The yellow-green tones, high contrast, and high noise create a retro film-like vibe like Top Gun: Maverick

The ever-evolving mobile photography game has made users particular about zooming into the pixels and checking for high-quality resolution. This phenomenon is known as pixel-peeping.

For pixel peepers, an essential feature on the realme 12 Pro+ 5G is its 50MP Sony IMX890 OIS Camera – it has the capacity for a large amount of light intake for better photos. Using the Hi-Res mode at 1x allows full resolution shots with solid detail. This mode is best used for taking highly intricate architecture and cropping photos to find the best dimensions.

Take shots from any distance

Shooting from a distance may result in low-quality images, but that won’t be the case with the realme 12 Pro+ 5G’s 64MP Periscope Camera. The Periscope Camera allows users to take well-composed photos of their subjects without having to move an inch from where they’re standing.  The Periscope Camera of the realme 12 Pro+ 5G has 3x Optical Zoom, 6x In-Sensor Zoom, and up to 120x SuperZoom. It uses an Omnivision 64B Sensor (1/2” Sensor Size) and supports Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). It is also calibrated with realme’s Cinematic Bokeh Algorithms that process photos to make them more natural and have better separation from the subject and the surrounding background.

With the various optical zooms offered by the Periscope Camera, users can take detailed shots of musicians at big concerts, sporting events with large crowds, and other faraway subjects. The camera can also clearly capture celestial events like full moons and eclipses. Click “Photo” on the camera panel to access the Periscope Camera, and pinch or drag the slider to zoom in or out.

Whether seeking to preserve cherished memories or expressing different emotions through photos, the realme 12 Pro+ 5G’s cutting-edge technologies open up thrilling possibilities.

The realme 12 Pro+ 5G retails for only P25,999 and comes in two colorways: Submarine Blue and Navigator Beige. Catch the realme 12 Pro+ 5G on realme’s official offline stores and at Shopee, Lazada, and TikTok Shop.
