Huawei Mate 10 Pro in action-video

In collaboration with Huawei// Kaupallinen yhteistyö Huawein kanssa

In this post, I’d like to show you outfit pictures and video taken with my phone Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The video is mostly filmed with Huawei. What I like the most in the camera in this phone is that you can change the aperture, making the background blurrier, the bokef effect. This function saves me a lot of energy and effort when trying to find a good spot to shoot at. A blurry background calms down busy environment, but focuses on the main object making it so much easier to get good pictures in any environment. In my opinion, the most important function and feature when shooting outfit pictures.

While shooting you can use the live beautification feature, making you look edited while shooting.  You can also choose the amount of beautification you want present. Also, the camera offers you the possibility to switch focus point afterwards. So, when you’ve taken a picture with focus on the flower in the background instead of the face, you can fix that later. How great is that?

I’ve been using Huawei Mate 10 Pro for couple of months already and learned how to use it efficiently. I find it so easy to be able to snap pictures and videos along the day, comparable to pictures taken with my systems camera. Obviously, it’s much smaller than my systems camera, therefore it inspires me to take pictures in the most random and casual situations and settings. Another thing I love is the large screen! It’s a super bonus when taking flat lays, group pictures and especially when editing pictures. This is a huge pro I never understood the value of until now. A larger screen becomes handy also when planning and designing your Instagram feed.

These pictures are taken using different amount of the bokef effect. Some are less blurry than others which makes the whole series of pictures more interesting. It offers more variety when creating a series of pictures. It’s also super easy to change between 0-2 (2 being the blurriest). Huawei Mate 10 Pro makes it possible to shoot in Pro mode, giving you the opportunity to shoot RAW and use the most important settings typical for a systems camera such as like optical image stabilizer (OIS) and f/ 1,6 aperture on both sides. What also makes this camera extra ordinary is how well it performs in low light situations and setups.

I know I’m repeating myself when I say this, but the battery is seriously ridiculous! It lasts forever!!! Believe it or not, but that’s a deal breaker for me who use my phone as my most important working tool throughout the day. Huawei’s battery life is for sure one of this phone’s biggest strengths.

This collaboration has taught me to be more spontaneous and easy going when taking pictures. I carry my phone with me all the time, therefore it makes my life so much easier when I’m able to document my days so easily through my phone.

How I travel

Fashion,Outfit,Travel,11 March 2018

Still in recovery from my last trip and soon it’s time to start packing again. I usually travel light outside of work, but if my trip includes documenting, taking lots of outfit pictures or working on collaborations I prefer to think more is more. I collected my most important points I try to live after when traveling.

I usually prefer to be very comfortable when I travel. No huge puffy jackets, thick knits or tight pants. My packing is color coordinated so that everything is easy to mix and match. However, I like to look decent in opposite of what I look like when I travel with the family, hehe). Wider pants or relaxed jeans worn with shoes that easily comes off.  Layers are always good, therefore a camisole worn under a cardigan or thin knit works perfectly.

I always get a headache when I fly no matter what I do. Keeping hydrated and staying away from salty food, alcohol and too much coffee helps, but I’ve learned to always carry pain killers with me in my purse. Eating well is valuable as well because sitting still for hours before running from one place to the next is much more pleasant without a bloated belly.

Peace and quiet has become super important to me. I make up a plan of things I need to get done before boarding and on the plane, where after I make sure I stick to it. It can be anything from editing pictures, writing school papers or sleep. It’s valuable time and goes by much faster if it’s used efficiently.

Don’t turn off the air conditioner while flying. Make sure your dressed warmly and perhaps even carry a soft scarf with you to wear around your neck or use as a blanket. The air conditioner makes sure the air circulates and stays fresh around your seat.

When I’ve completed my work day I am one of those antisocial people who wants to go to bed on time. I’ve valued sleep as long as I can remember even though I don’t sleep that much all- in- all. I also put much more energy on good skin care before and after the flight than during the flight. Healthy dinner, good skin care routine and early bedtime make sure I’m the best I can be the morning after, whether it’s for work or playing with the kids.
