A couple of weeks ago we launched Xperia Photo Academy, a collaboration with some of the world’s top photographers to showcase what you can do armed with the right techniques and an Xperia Z3 smartphone.

Last week was the turn of J.N. Silva, a photographer renowned for his use of contrast, who gave us an insight into how to add a bit of drama to smartphone photography – offering tips and tricks on how to make the most of strong light combined with the HDR Mode on the Xperia Z3 Series.

Today our second photography expert, Australian born Ben Thomas, offers up his expertise in how to best manipulate perspective using an Xperia Z3 Compact.

Not only does Ben share some of the shots he’s taken that perfectly capture the miniaturisation effect that he’s so famed for, but also provides a five-step guide on how to take them for yourself.

Head over to the Xperia Photo Academy to find out more about our exclusive competition and how you too can make the most out of your Xperia smartphone by picking up some new photography skills.
