Sony Philippines Hosted Mobile Photography Workshop


Members of the esteemed Sony Xperia Photography Philippines and  Xperia Club participated yesterday at the Mobile Photography Workshop hosted by Sony Philippines held at the Top Shelf of Fully Booked in Bonifacio High Street.

Set Designer and Visualizer Ron Lee (IG: @thatdesignerguyy) shared some tips on photo styling. He showed us how to creatively compose concepts for flat lay design and still photography.

we can't return we can only look behind."

I took these photos using my ever reliable Sony Xperia Z1. Ron Lee provided the props for the shoot and we had the liberty to create a scene. I'm really not very creative when it comes to composing a scene. Ron stressed out on the importance of putting together all the elements to create a cohesive story through photography. Most of my blog related photos are posted in my @snappedandscribbled instagram account.

I'm more into food photography. I guess you can never be wrong with food as your subject. Check out my foodie instagram at @foodiecheatday 

Mobile Photographer and one of the admins of Sony Xperia Photography Philippines Linus Banaag (IG: @jhnbanaag) taught us how to #GetAheadWithXperia by making the most of what the camera phone's settings has to offer. Most of us are guilty of being to lazy to get to know our phone's capability. I am guilty of that. I am most of the time just contented with the phone's default setting. Linus gave us a walk through of the Xperia's manual camera settings and demonstrated how to achieve better quality pictures by adjusting the ISO, Resolution, SCN modes among others.

The Sony Xperia X Series

Sony Philippines also took the opportunity to let the attendees experience the Sony Xperia X Series. Sony Xperia X boasts of a 23MP rear camera with quick start up capability. It enables you to capture a photo from stand by in 0.60 seconds. That's as quick as a blink of an eye! Xperia X's front camera just got more exciting for selfie lovers out there with it's 13MP camera equipped with Sony's renowned low light sensors. 

Are you living an action packed life? The X series camera has an object tracking with motion prediction engine. Capture life's unexpected moments without the blur! The camera features SteadyShot™ video stabilization for shooting smooth videos and minimizing any “shaky cam” effects. 

And how about the battery life? It can last you for 2 days with the stamina mode. Sony Xperia X's smart battery management can be optimized up to 2x the battery's life span. 

Sony Xperia X retails at PhP29,990 and the Sony Xperia XA retails at PhP13,990.

I'm into mobile photography since I started blogging. All the photos on my blog are taken using Sony Xperia Z1. I'm no techie and I used to take mediocre photos. My skill has improved a lot when I joined the Sony Xperia Photography Philippines group.
