‘Today at Apple’ just released their second video. After successfully touching down the educational program through the first video, here comes the photography session that focuses on learning how to shoot and edit “otherworldly” photos in Night mode on an iPhone. The virtual session is hosted by Apple’s expert Landon and photographer Maria Lax.
Today at Apple sessions are purposely created for iPhone and iPad users to learn various tips and tricks from professionals for a maximum productive experience with their device. During this eight minutes session uploaded on Apple’s YouTube channel, Landon and Lax take to the streets of New York and London at night to share three techniques to give regular places and objects an “otherworldly” effect. The Night mode on the iPhone 12 works great for shooting night scenes and locations with interesting light. Being able to capture lighting in different intensities brings variety to night photography.
If you are feeling up to it, you can also prop the iPhone on a tripod to minimize blurs and shakes. From the video You’ll learn that there’s plenty of room to experiment. Even dimly lit locations and seemingly mundane subjects can look magical when you get extra creative. Don’t forget to add some finishing touches with your editing, and you’ll have perfectly moody, surreal night photos wherever you go.
The iPhone 12 series and iPhone 11 series offer a Night mode photography feature to capture pictures in low-light environments. The feature is automatically enabled when the camera detects a low-light environment, and the circular icon on the camera UI turns yellow. However, the feature works with front cameras for selfies in Night mode only on iPhone 12 models. Recap the whole video, lets point out their secret to amazing Night mode photos:
-choose your light sources that stand out and capture interest like different colored lighting, and tinted windows with different glass.
-challenge yourself to be creative while shooting with objects and materials like light reflectors, and colored plastic to create different effects.
-Edit to find the right color saturation for an image and to tell a story.
