This year, tech giant Huawei (pronounced “wah-way” for those wondering) returned as a partner of Sydney’s spectacular festival of light, Vivid Sydney. Huawei launched their latest smartphone, the Huawei P10, last week so we were keen to put the P10’s impressive co-engineered Leica camera to the test by capturing some of the incredible Vivid Sydney 2017 light installations.
The Huawei P10 has some top quality camera specs: the rear camera features a dual-lens 12MP RGB (Red, Green, Blue) + 20MP monochrome camera, whilst the ‘selfie’ cam is the world’s first Leica front camera on a smartphone. The P10 camera also comes loaded with loads of cool shooting modes, including my favourite, Light Painting. Light Painting mode allows you to capture moving light, like a sparkler or road traffic, in a still image.
So armed with a flask of tea (hey I’m British and it’s cold in Sydney right now) and the Huawei P10, we set off in search of the brightest and best lightworks that Vivid had to offer.
Here are some of our favourite shots from the evening.
The Museum of Contemporary Art has a fascinating light show projected onto it's front:
The contrast between the lights of the Opera House and the black sky create an impressive shot:
The lasers and coloured lights of the city and Circular Quay look incredible from the water:
No Vivid Cruise would be complete without a shot of the Sydney Harbour Bridge:
I love the way the light from the Opera House is reflected in the water below:
Have you got a Huawei P10? If so, we'd love to see some of your shots. Comment below with your photo 🙂
