Composition. A well-composed structure makes your photo more attractive. But it’s quite challenging to master all the composition rules in a short time. The HUAWEI P10 Series makes this so much easier to master by just following simple steps:

1. On the camera page, slide to the left to enter settings, and choose [Assistive grid].

2. Select the composition style you want.

QUICK TIP: You can choose symmetry that delivers balanced and harmonious presentation. You can turn on the reference lines to make sure your frame is straight horizontally and vertically, so that the presentation is full of tension.
