But, before you go, here’s a little bit of inspiration for you. The following stunning photos, by OnePlus’ photography expert Mike Kus, were shot on the OnePlus 9 Pro and showcase just what you can do with a OnePlus’ handset.
Kus has also offered up the following tips to help you find your True Colors. Good luck!
1. Use the colours of nature
Use the colours of nature to bring colour, vibrancy and texture to your photographs. Capture the amber leaves of autumn or the pink/white blossom of spring to bring natural colour to your work.
2. Shoot during the golden hour
Take advantage of the golden hour light by shooting in the morning around sunrise or in the evening around sunset. The light at these times of day creates a unique atmosphere and accentuates the colour and texture of your surroundings.
3. Get creative with reflections
Photographs your surroundings in a puddle or a lake to create other worldly compositions. Try layering the inside world with the outside by photographing the reflections in a shop or cafe window.
4. Portrait Mode
Use Portrait Mode to capture professional looking pictures of your family and friends. Portrait mode produces that lovely foreground and background blur that can normally only be achieved when using a stand alone camera setup.
5. Night photography
Capture the atmospheric lights of an urban environment. Too much movement can cause blurry looking photos, so for the best results, lean your phone up against a solid object to keep it super still while you take the photograph.
