The Campaign

In an instore environment with sterile neon lighting it is impossible for customers to be able to capture brilliant photographs and physically experience how Low Light camera feature works. So we wanted to showcase what the camera could really do as well as the quality of the Low light photography by creating a beautifully designed Low Light photography book of Australia only captured using the Galaxy S9. The book will be displayed in all Samsung Experience Stores, Studios and used for PR release and roadshows. Target Audience Australian millennials 18-35 (female skewed) Samsung and non-Samsung fence sitters.

Creative Execution

Unless you’re a professional photographer capturing photos at night has always been a challenge. We published a Low Light Book which showcased a collection of night photography commissioned from local night photographers only shot using using the Galaxy S9|S9+. We also submitted photos taken by various Samsung Store Team Members giving them first hand knowledge about the Low Light feature. In the book we included tips and tricks and locations across Australia for the perfect night shot. The cover also had an interactive element where you could test the difference in clarity using acetate film. The cover itself demonstrated the difference in light when removed. We also used a number of photographs to display as FAB frames and posters across our Samsung Stores in Australia.
