How do you capture photos that can speak a thousand words? For professional photographer Cyrus Panganiban, sticking to the core of your authentic self—that includes your interest, likes, and dislikes—is key.
Learning the rules of photography and knowing when to break them, he says, is also helpful in discovering your own style and vibe. “If you really want to start taking photographs, start with any device and just start now,” he adds.
If you’re one of those who have discovered their passion for photography using their smartphone’s cameras, Cyrus shares some valuable insights on how he captures the ‘Shape of Power’ using the OnePlus 11 5G.
Clear photos for your visual diary
Each photo you take has a story to tell, and capturing it in its clearest form makes all the difference.
As a photographer, Cyrus values keeping a visual diary, and he usually uses the main camera of the OnePlus 11 5G for his daily documentation.
“I like and use the main camera mode. The 50MP main camera with Sony IMX890 sensor and 32MP telephoto portrait camera is what I use in almost all of my daily documentation. I find myself doing a lot of videos, too; I love the quality and image stabilization.” he says.
On top of the main camera features, he also likes the XPAN mode of the camera as it gives a cinematic and documentary feel to the photos he snaps.
Game-changing Hasselblad technology
The camera of the OnePlus 11 5G is co-created by Hasselblad and uses a system-based triple camera module paired with Hasselblad-branded color tuning, allowing you to capture images in their natural colors. As a professional photographer, this is both a game changer and a revolutionary collaboration for Cyrus.
“My being a OnePlus 11 5G x Hasselblad ambassador came at a good time. With its 50MP main camera with Sony IMX 890 sensor and 32MP telephoto camera I was able to start with ease,” he said.
Powerful, well-designed smartphone for everyday use
The OnePlus 11 5G is an all-in-one device that can satisfy your need for function and can jumpstart your passion for photography. “Using it has made my documentation easy and efficient… sharing documents or high-resolution images with clients [has also become] a breeze because the device is that good and powerful,” Cyrus shared.
The OnePlus 11 5G is priced at P45,990 for the 8+128GB variant and P49,990 for the 16+256GB variant. It is available in two colorways: Titan Black and Eternal Green.
