Blur the background with Huawei’s Wide Aperture Mode on the Huawei P9

Just one click into Instagram and you’ll be faced with beautifully shot images taking advantage of depth of field to focus the eye on what’s important. You may be forgiven for thinking you need to fork out for the best DSLR Camera to achieve this effect, but this isn’t the case.

Take the Huawei P9 device, with Huawei’s Wide Aperture Mode and you’ll be instagramming like a pro.

What is Wide Aperture mode and why should I use it?

Wide aperture mode lets you take photographs with a shallow depth of field as well as adjust the focal point of a captured photo to blur the background and make your subject more prominent.
