The most photographed face of this generation actually doesn’t want to look at her photos very much.
Liza Soberano’s face is everywhere: on billboards, on magazine covers, on television. We might think she has a couple more images of herself in her camera, but she revealed she has more photos of other people.
“I like taking pictures of other people more than I like taking pictures of myself, because sometimes I don’t like looking at myself very much,” Liza told MS Young Life.
Yes, the girl whose face has launched several brands wants to work behind the camera, too. “I’ve always liked taking photos of beautiful unforgettable moments, places, and other people,” said Liza.
“I actually want to venture into photography in the future.”
The “millennial Darna” now has a chance to learn more about the craft as Fujifilm tapped her to be its newest endorser for its latest X-A3 camera.
Fujifim Philippines Director Ryo Nagaoka said Liza is the perfect example of the elegant, beautiful, and stylish woman of this generation. “Not afraid of being herself and showing creativity, the X-A3 woman is smart as she will always go for form and function in choosing her gadgets without ever putting a compromise in style,” he declared.
Although Liza only takes a few selfies (she said there are days she doesn’t do that altogether), she makes sure she takes them well. “I make sure the background is nice, I have the perfect lighting, and I put on my best smile.”
The mirrorless X-A3 does come in handy as its 180-degree tiltable LCD monitor makes it easier to take self-portraits. Its 24.2 megapixel APS-C sensor ensures photos are at their most excellent quality.
Meanwhile, bad lighting is one less problem of Liza as the camera comes with a built-in pop-up flash that supports the Super Intelligent Flash system that accurately controls light output according to individual scenes. This means the flash will automatically reduce highlight clipping to produce images exactly as how you see them.
Sharing and printing photos captured using X-A3 is easy, too, as it’s equipped with built-in Wi-Fi capability to connect to Instax SHARE and to smartphone or tablet.
Liza also loves the retro-chic design of the camera. The colors—brown, silver, pink—are perfect for her, too, as she said she’s not a fan of too girly style.
But should she need to spruce up her usual neutral colored ensemble, she can easily do so with Fujifilm’s other latest release Instax Mini 9, which is available in pink, blue, green, and white. Or go back to black with Instax’s first hybrid camera SQ10.
At the end of the day, regardless of the camera Liza uses, she said she’d just like to capture moments.
“A great photo is when you’re able to capture that memory and when you look back you’re able to feel what you felt in that moment,” she concluded.
