ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE: Behind the scenes of TheVelvetDolls shoot

Remember my first blog post on my ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE? The ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE fared so well with food photography, that I thought I ought to give it a whir and see how well it would perform when it comes to taking photos of human subjects and objects.

I brought out my sleek ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE for this week’s TheVelvetDolls photoshoot and I was truly astounded with the kind of shots that I captured with solely the built-in camera itself! Of course, I love editing my photos straight away on my mobile device as well, and I was really impressed that the Android Play Store has all my favourite photo-editing apps on it, such as Snapseed and VSCOcam.

Throughout the entire day, I was happily snapping away with the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE while my photographer Nic was taking the real shots. Heheh. I love it when I don’t have to be the official photographer cos then I can take behind-the-scene photos which are sometimes so much more interesting!

Without further ado, here are some of my favourite behind-the-scene images shot with the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE from our photoshoot… I am incredibly amazed by how good they look! Remember, these are straight out from the built-in 8MP f/2.0 camera, and edited in-phone with only Snapseed and VSCOcam. For a smartphone that costs less than $300, I don’t see how you can get any better than this.

Definitely my favourite image of the day. I love how the ZenFone 5 LTE camera was able to handle the complex scene with such dynamic lighting and complexity. Wow!

This is what happens during photoshoots, our photographer gets down and dirty all for the sake of good pictures!

One of my favourite outfits from the shoot! Do you also spot (on the right) our trolley of clothes/shoes/gear that we lug about during every outdoor shoot? It is tiring and back-breaking work, but oh-so-worth-it.

My pretty model Chanel, looking all edgy and pretty in this biker jacket and mesh skirt combination!

I was exploring the different camera modes on the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE and this mode literally blew me away. With this “Depth Of Field” mode, it makes the photos look almost like they were taken with a professional DSLR camera! 

You HAVE to try the Depth Of Field mode on the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE! The results are remarkable!

Another mode: Lomo, which I then converted to Black and White in VSCOcam. Great detail and contrast!

Using VSCOcam to process my images on the go! I love the huge 5″ HD display too, makes editing photos a joy! The phone is also extremely fast and responsive, thanks to its Qualcomm Snapdragon Quad-Core Processor.

Oh yes, I love the “What’s Next” function on the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE, which displays my daily schedule right on the home screen in a nice timeline and keeps me up-to-date with my crazy appointments and events and rehearsals. Love that!

 Almost hard to believe that the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE works so well for a phone that’s just $269 (for the 2GB/8GB version), I’m sold! This phone is seriously value-for-money. Packed with so many awesome features, really pretty and sleek design, and not to forget the user-friendly Android-powered OS, ASUS’s very own user interface and AWESOME camera function! If you’re looking for maximum impact on a modest budget, you definitely wanna check out the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE.

Thank you so much to the team at ASUS for sending this my way, this is one amazing little device!
