Every day we get blown away by the amazing #ShotOnNokia photos and videos. We love having the opportunity to see what this amazing Nokia phones community is creating, and this month behind the camera, we have Victor, @belon1986.
Using his Nokia 8.1, he’s been able to capture some stunning shots and we got the chance to catch up with him about his process.
How long have you been interested in photography?
I picked up photography as a hobby in 2009 whilst studying at university. In 2013, I decided to stop using my professional camera and focus on Mobile Photography using the Nokia devices and I haven’t looked back since.
What's your favorite part about photography?
My favourite part of photography is how every photographer can produce different results when shooting the same scene because of the different angles they shoot at & post-editing. It helps showcase the role creativity plays.
Among your work, which one is your favourite? Why?
It has to be this shot I took at Singapore's Changi airport. This photo combines a few of my favorite elements: the crystal ball, using reflections, the upside-down composition, and the full utilization of frame.
What is the one thing you wish you knew when you started taking photos?
Photo editing, which I am still exploring & learning day by day. With photo editing, you can give every photo a new look simply by cropping, rotating, and editing colour tones.
What advice would you give to aspiring photographers?
My advice would be to study shots from different photographers to get inspiration. Of course, I am not encouraging imitation here, but there’s so much to get inspired by that can be found on Instagram. By referring to a great example, you might be able to add to your own idea and start establishing your own style.
