A little insight into my life with the new Huawei P9+

The Huawei P9 and the Huawei P9+ are the results of the collaboration between Huawei and the historic camera manufacturer Leica.

This week I had the chance to test the new Huawei P9+ and here is my impression of the phone:The first thing that caught my eye was the cutting edge design and the really impressive duallens camera from Leica. If you follow m e on Instagram, you might know I’m not only shooting with my DSLR but also with my phone (which is also a Huawei btw)
Every photographer or instagrammer knows exactly that it’s not always possible to carry our cameras everywhere all the time – so we use the device which is always with us.
Our phone!

When I heard that the P9+ was put together with a Leica camera, I knew from that moment that I really need to try the camera.

And I tried it this week..

Matching to my topic “Tierliebe” I used Estella, a Maine Coon Cat from a friend. At the beginning it was really hard to capture the cat because she couldn’t keep still.

After giving her some little snacks, she finally got used to the camera. If you look closer, you can clearly see every little detail, specially her eyes.

These are the features of the Huawei P9 Plus:

  • Front camera 8MP
  • Back camera 12MP Duallens f/2.2, 27 mm, Leica optics, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash
  • Resolution 1080 x 1920 pixels

You probably ask yourself now what the best way it is to photograph your pet with a smartphone.

Here are some tips:

  • The best pictures are taken when there’s a good lightning – don’t shoot with a smartphone when it’s dark outside!
  • I usually photograph animals behind white or colored walls – the animal is the main object in the picture – other backgrounds might attract or be confusing
  • Focus on its eyes
  • Do not hesitate your pet, she will move around even more 😉
  • When you photograph an animal, make sure its whole body is on the picture
  • Use snacks or make sounds (for example rustle a key) so that it looks into the right direction / into the camera
  • You won’t become a pro after taking few pictures of your pet – but don’t give up, after trying it for many times you’ll know what the best location is to take pictures of your pet and to which “sound” it reacts.

Practice is what creates mastery.

Good luck!  😉
