WHO NEEDS CAM­ERA

At New Zealand Fash­ion Week 2017, Sam­sung chal­lenged fash­ion blog­ger Aki Ang of The Sleek Av­enue to leave her DSLR cam­era at home and use only the new Sam­sung Gal­axy Note8 as her cre­ative tool.

Miss FQ - - Style -

That mo­ment when you walk into the pho­tog­ra­phers’ pit with your pho­tog­ra­pher pass and ev­ery­one’s won­der­ing where your cam­era is… That’s the mo­ment Aki Ang had at New Zealand Fash­ion Week 2017 when she brought the new Sam­sung Gal­axy Note8 smart­phone to shoot the cat­walk — in­stead of her trusty DSLR cam­era.

As cre­ator of fash­ion in­spi­ra­tion source The Sleek Av­enue, Aki has a ge­nius for style and, as her boldly so­phis­ti­cated aes­thetic at­tests, she’s not afraid to try some­thing new. So when Sam­sung sug­gested she shoot NZFW shows with the new Gal­axy Note8, she put to­gether an in­sanely awe­some out­fit, slipped the Note8 in Orchid Grey into one of her fa­mously high-end purses and headed to Auck­land’s ANZ Viaduct Events Cen­tre.

With its dual lens cam­era, In­fin­ity Dis­play for bet­ter multi-task­ing and fastcharg­ing tech­nol­ogy, the Note8 was the per­fect ac­ces­sory for Aki to cap­ture all the ac­tion at the shows. Great cam­era sta­bil­ity is im­por­tant for Aki, and both cam­eras on the Note8 have op­ti­cal im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion, so you get steady shots even when zoomed in. “I used the Note8 Pro mode to zoom in on the cat­walk, which made cap­tur­ing mov­ing mod­els eas­ier,” ex­plains Aki. Af­ter­wards, she used the cool Sam­sung S Pen to draw on the im­ages, adding cred­its and com­ments.

“An ex­tra de­li­cious thing about tak­ing the Note8 to NZFW was that I didn’t need to bring a mas­sive bag and gi­ant cam­era that would ruin my out­fit,” she laughs.

Favourite mo­ments: Fash­ion blog­ger Aki Ang shot these NZFW im­ages us­ing the Sam­sung Gal­axy Note8 smart­phone and cre­ated the il­lus­tra­tions us­ing the Sam­sung S Pen that lets you draw your own emo­jis, make an­i­mated GIFS and write mes­sages on pho­tos. Fun!
