This London Photography Masterclass Takes Place On The 52nd Floor

Head to the Sky Pool at Shangri-La’s Gong Bar for London’s highest photography masterclass.

Smiling next to a red telephone box, waving at Buckingham Palace’s beefeaters and climbing up The Shard. What’s a trip to London without them? It might be hard to go wrong when it comes to taking photos of the first two. But we’ve all politely scrolled through a friend’s smudged photos of the city skyline one too many times before to know that it’s harder than it looks to capture its full glory. 

But wave goodbye to blurry pictures and half-hearted attempts because a photography masterclass is coming to the city and it’s promising to up your photography game for good! 

We’ve teamed up with Huawei UK and Fever UK to launch London’s highest photography masterclass. Taking place on Floor 52 of The Shard, you’ll get to spend an evening capturing the city’s most beautiful panoramic views with a drink in hand.

Head to The Sky Pool at Shangri La’s Gong Bar on December 11 for the perfect pre-Christmas treat: an evening comprising of canapes and drinks, a beautiful gospel choir and the opportunity to learn how to take some spectacular photos of London. 

The masterclass will be lead by a Huawei UK product trainer, who’ll show you exactly how to use the Huawei P30 Pro to its best ability. Don’t own a Huawei phone? Don’t worry. Not only will you get the chance to play around with one during the masterclass, but you’ll also be entered into a competition with a chance to win a Huawei P30 Pro to take home! How’s that for an early Christmas present? 

Over the course of the evening, get into the intricacies of the Huawei P30 Pro and its photo-taking abilities. Once you’ve admired the skyline and figured out what’s going on and where, make the most of the zoom feature to get up-close-and-personal with the stunning settings outside. The new periscope telephoto lens on the Huawei P30 Pro allows for more optical zooming capabilities, while the SuperZoom Lens offers 10x hybrid zoom1 to see the never-before-seen with great resolution and rich detail.

And don’t worry about missing golden hour or being stuck in the dark: The colour sensing rule has been rewritten by HUAWEI UK from RGGB to RYYB for more light in all the images you’ll take. The HUAWEI SuperSpectrum sensor contributes 40% increased light and the self-developed algorithm provides a clear preservation of your memories during the day or night.
