iPhone 11 series cameras have been the talk of the town ever since their debut on 10th September. The slofies or ultrawide pictures have been much appreciated and applauded. However, not all the features are out there on the screen some are hidden and I am here to uncover them. In this post, you will come across the best iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro camera tips and tricks so that you can up your photography skills.
Photography Tips and Tricks for iPhone
1. Take Slow-Motion Selfie Videos (Slofie)
Capture slow motion selfies on your newly acquired iPhone 11 series. To capture slofies first turn on the selfie mode on the normal camera and shift to slow-motion then.
2. Recompose your photos
You can recompose the photos you have clicked on your iPhone to capture an object that you accidentally cut in the frame. To do so go to Settings – Camera – Toggle on ‘Photos/Videos Capture Outside Frame’. Now you can capture photos on the telephoto lens or normal wide lends. When you go to edit and crop the image you will see that the image is slightly wider than the one that you captured.
3. Take Ultra-Wide Angle Images
What is your all-time favorite phrase when referring to something more? I think ‘The more the merrier’ is what comes to our minds, right? Well, Apple has heard it and it finally introduced an Ultra-wide camera lens. Take Ultra-Wide pictures by tapping on the ‘0.5′ number above the shutter.
4. Take Wide Selfies
Initially, you could only capture zoomed-in selfies but with the iPhone 11 series, you can expand the frame to capture more in every selfie. Simply tap on the expand arrows just above the shutter and add more to your selfies.
5. Capture Quick-Take Videos
Another, a new feature that has debuted with iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max is the Quick Take videos. Basically, you can take real quick videos without switching from photos mode to video mode. Just press and hold on your shutter and swipe right to take a quick video.
6. Furry Portraits it is
The super-smart cameras of the iPhone 11 can now capture portraits of your furry friends as well. Your portraits are no-longer limited to capture humans.
7. Swipe Down for Additional Tools
If you have been an iPhone lover you would be trying to locate the additional camera tools that were previously residing on the top of the screen, but that’s not the same with iPhone 11 series. To be able to access these tools you can either swipe up from the shutter or simply tap on the arrow on the tap of the screen.
8. Filter your Photos
With some great camera filters, you can capture great Instagram pictures. But, you can not see where to do that? Well, just tap on the arrow on the top of your camera screen and tap on the primary colors icon on towards the right of your shutter.
9. Widen your Portraits
So, if you are the proud owner of the iPhone 11 Pro or 11 Pro max you would even be able to capture wide portraits on your device. Just tap on the 1x icon on the left side of the frame and your frame would be widened.
10. Switch to Telephoto Lens
Now, if you have taken great wide and ultra-wide images I think you should also try the amazing telephoto lens as well. Just like the ultra-wide images you also have to access the telephoto lens by tapping on ‘2x’ above the shutter.
11. Changing the Aspect Ratio
On the iPhone 11 series, you can now also change the aspect ratio of your frames. To change the aspect ratio you simply have to access the camera tools by tapping on the arrow on the top of the screen. And tap on the 4:3 ratio, this will open available aspect ratios for you to choose from.
12. Low Light captures with Night Mode
The Night Mode has been really an anticipated camera feature and it has finally appeared in the iPhone 11 series and how? I cannot get over the iPhone night mode and you should also try it out
13. Why not widen the Panos?
So if your photos can be wide why can’t the pano photos be wide as well? Tap on the ‘1x’ above the shutter and that’s about it.
14. Don’t forget to Burst it out
And last but certainly not the least our dear old Burst Photos which you can no longer take by simply pressing and holding on the shutter. You have press the shutter and swipe left to click burst photos and have to keep your finger in that position till you take the desired number of pictures.
15. Take Additional help from the best accessories
Have you ever wondered how their #shotoniPhone is better than yours? Along with their skill and talent, they add the professional touch with some additional help.
Help in the form of great camera apps for the iPhone , manual or otherwise. Then there are additional Camera Accessories from various types of lenses, flashes, tripods, gimbals, etc.
