Mobile Photography – Huawei P30 Pro Review

Share

Huawei’s new Android smartphone is aimed at photography buffs and features a new tri-camera array, or quad-camera, if you include the separate ToF (Time of Flight) sensor that’s used to measure the subject/object distance for AF and the faux-bokeh effects.

We were able to get a P30 Pro in for a closer look.

The Huawei P30 Pro continues its association with the German high-end photo brand Leica, and it’s not just a licensing deal. It is according to Leica a synergistic effort, it’s been designed from scratch; it is not the same triple-camera array as found on the P20 Pro.

Before delving into the camera spec’s, impressive as they are, it’s worth mentioning a little bit about the device itself.

“Spaghetti Bolognese

My mother was a good cook but she didn’t cook spaghetti. The Navy had ruined spaghetti for my dad by putting it in cans for C-Rations. Fortunately the few times dad cooked (“want C-Rations?”) didn’t ruin it back! This is not her recipe”.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 17 February 2019

Share

When my eldest son was at boarding school, there was the most incredible sensory garden for all the children to enjoy, it was an empowering experience and helped many of the children to blossom. A sensory garden has the ability in many ways to become a sensory room. If you’re not familiar with the umbrella term ‘sensory room’ they are essentially rooms, with special lighting, music and objects, a therapeutic place, one of safety in which to deescalate experiences and promote self care, resilience and recovery.  When we view art, it’s important to use all five senses too, as much as possible, to not just look and move on but to really try to understand the image, to get into the picture, literally.

Mobile art is as much about presence as the senses, about the awareness of what it is to move through it. Whether the artist themselves has fully utilised all of their senses when creating the art, we can heighten our own experience by not only cascading into the picture but by creating circumstances in which that might happen. When we participate in life with all our senses, whether we are in a sensory garden, a sensory room, viewing art, or making love, it is a far more rewarding form of participation and one that you will feel all the better for by throwing yourself into.

In keeping with my New Year Resolutions, this week you’ll find me at the Intercontinental Park Lane Hotel,  as I start preliminary judging the Pink Lady Food Awards.

Thank you to all the talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week.
