    With photography as much as any other hobby, practice makes perfect. However @Nabil Rosman there are tools to help you greatly in the process. What feature of the camera app (or hardware) in the 9-series do you think has the biggest effect for "new" photographers?

    We tend to miss out on the background frames and colours when we try to click a photo of a subject. I noticed that your photos have a great colour of subject, as well as the background, which I find difficult to get together in one picture...

    Any tips upon how to balance the colour combinations and brightness of both the subject and background together ?

    Hey, probably not the answer you're looking for, but for me I always do it with RAW processing in post if lighting conditions weren't ideal, even in Snapseed you can do miracles.

    Why there's no mention of Hasselblad partnership with OnePlus on Hasselblad website?

    Mine question is regarding post processing.

    I've been using application such as Lightroom and Snapseed for post processing.

    My question is which are the tools that you use for enhancing images shot in RAW format. I've been using various attributes of those apps but the end results are not always pleasing.

    Thanks again @Nabil Rosman for this AMA.

    Photography is an art for itself. It need passion, training and a lots of effort.

    What advices you have for beginners, especially you people, which want to use this art as an way if expression of the pov of the world and the story they want to tell?

    The true colours of Hasselblad and OP partnership inspired me to an idea of an project with youths of our youth center. I am a social worker there.

    The pandemic robbed often there voice and you people doesn't have often the opportunity to make there mark or make their point to get seen or heard.

    This project should create an kind of platform to present their feelings, emotions, thoughts, worries etc. by shooting pics of special places, moments it things which matters for them.

    Thank you very much!

    I have not tried using RAW image mode often... Thanks for the advice.
    But I'm kind of sure it would not be able to give a very subtle and natural picture. Especially those having multiple colours or lights at different angles (or I don't know to use Lightroom that well 😅)

    Lightroom is very handy, since you can have per color saturation and brightness adjustment. In Snapseed you'd need to to that with the selective tool.

    But with just highlights and shadow adjustment minder the image adjustment tab you can get u much further. And thanks to RAW often there is not much data lost in the over or under exposed areas. Where in jpegs they often get ruined when trying to pull out the detail.

    From my DSLR days with portrait/landscape photography if it's hard to get the background to a matching exposure to the foreground, it's often nice to use a longer exposure for the background (on darker environments) together with a rear curtain flash for your subject. Not possible in phones usually though.

    Thanks for the AMA @Nabil Rosman.

    How do you get the person, place or thing that is in front of your camera onto the film, chip or paper in just the way you want it?

    Thankyou so much !
