Last March 16, realme kicked off the Portrait Master Academy with a fun photowalk along Escolta, Manila. Headlining the inaugural event was led by a commercial photographer, Stephen Capuchino, who showed us just how they could be portrait masters with the realme 12 Pro+ 5G.

For those who missed it, Capuchino has a few of the latest tips on maximizing the flagship camera technology of realmes newest device. These tips will help you capture movie-like images, engage in “pixel-peeping,” and take beautiful shots from any distance.

Check out our review of the realme 12 Pro+ 5G here.

The realme 12 Pro+ 5G allows users to capture beautiful portraits by simply choosing an attractive or eye-catching outdoor background and shooting during the golden hour right before sunset or just after sunrise. Elevate the tone and feel of the photo with realmes Portrait Mode, and makes shots more appealing by applying movie-like filters co-created by Oscar-winning cinematographer, Claudio Miranda.

Choose between the following filters, based on iconic Hollywood movies:

  • Journey: This dream-like tone is inspired by Life of Pi and features yellow tones and high-contrast colors
  • Memory: The cold tones and low-saturation colors evoke a calm and capable vibe similar to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  • Maverick: The yellow-green tones, high contrast, and high noise create a retro film-like vibe like Top Gun: Maverick

“Pixel-peeping” involves zooming into the photo’s pixels and checking for high-quality resolution. An essential feature on the realme 12 Pro+ 5G is its 50MP Sony IMX890 OIS Camera, which has the capacity for a large amount of light intake for better photos. Using the Hi-Res mode at 1x allows full resolution shots with solid detail. This mode is best used for taking highly intricate architecture and cropping photos to find the best dimensions.

The Periscope Camera allows users to take well-composed photos of their subjects without having to move an inch from where theyre standing. The Periscope Camera of the realme 12 Pro+ 5G has 3x Optical Zoom, 6x In-Sensor Zoom, and up to 120x SuperZoom. It uses an Omnivision 64B Sensor (1/2 Sensor Size) and supports Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). It is also calibrated with realmes Cinematic Bokeh Algorithms that process photos to make them more natural and have better separation from the subject and the surrounding background.

With the various optical zooms offered by the Periscope Camera, users can take detailed shots of musicians at big concerts, sporting events with large crowds, and other faraway subjects. The camera can also clearly capture celestial events like full moons and eclipses. Click Photo on the camera panel to access the Periscope Camera, and pinch or drag the slider to zoom in or out.
