Capture the Christmas spirit with the Moto g5s plus

No better way to say #HelloChristmas than with picture-perfect photos using the Moto g5s plus

Christmas is one of the most-awaited celebrations among Filipinos for several reasons. It is the perfect reason for getting together and bonding with loved ones. Besides providing an ideal backdrop for creating wonderful memories, it provides a setting for actually capturing those moments.

In this digital era, there is no easier way to preserve moments with loved ones than by taking a snap using the phone. Motorola Philippines makes sure to equip Filipinos with the perfect smartphone for exactly these memorable moments.

Step up photography skills in time for this year’s holiday season with the Moto g5s plus. The phone’s dual 13MP rear cameras deliver like a professional camera but without the bulkiness. Take it on the Christmas getaway for easy photo snapping even while on the go.

Create amazing Christmas bokeh shots

Dual-camera smartphones are often described using photography jargon such as bokeh. The term originated from the Japanese word boke or boke-aii, which means “haze.” Translated to simpler terms, it refers to blur quality.

A bokeh shot is characterized by an out-of-focus light quality that usually separates a blurry background image from the subject. The bokeh blur quality creates an aesthetic effect to highlight the subject of the photograph. It is a popular approach in portrait photography and is particularly gaining popularity now with phone selfies.

Many Filipinos have been taking advantage of Christmas lights decorations to create their own bokeh-inspired profile pictures. One of the famous backdrops is the Festival of Lights at the Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati. For Filipinos in southern Luzon, the Nuvali Field of Lights is also a must-visit place for Instagram-worthy Christmas photos. The many colors and shapes created by the lights display provide a pleasing bokeh touch.

The Moto g5s plus makes bokeh shots easy as one-two-three. Its selective focus mode allows users to achieve that blurred background effect for bokeh-quality photos.

Play with different orientations

Create memorable Christmas photos by exploring different orientations. In relation to bokeh shots, better use of depth of field will lead to nicer-looking shots.

Also called focus range, depth of field refers to the area in front of and behind the subject that will be in focus. Produce wonderful Christmas portraits with a shallow depth of field with its soft, unfocused background. Capture holiday travel or reunions in landscape mode using a large depth of field so that a greater part of the image stays sharp or in focus.

The Moto g5s plus enhances users’ photography experience with its depth enable mode. This special mode lets users tap on the screen and use the exposure ring to change the focus. The slider on the bottom adjusts the blur effect depending on the desired drama effect for the photo.
