The iPhone 7 is one of the best camera smartphones on the planet right now. You can use it to capture all manner of amazing photos. However, there are different types of pictures, and some are better than others. For example, taking pictures in Portrait Mode is great for capturing a particular subject and ignoring the background. However, this mode is not totally perfect. But then, you can make your Portrait Mode pictures look great. Here are some steps to follow:
KEEP AWAY FROM MIRRORS AND WINDOWS
When you take Portrait Mode pictures, stay away from windows and windows. These confuse the Portrait Mode due to the mirror’s reflections and the window’s transparency, and they end up creating unnecessary blur. But then, this could be a software issue, too, so hopefully Apple will fix it.
USE FOR ONLY PERSONS AND LARGE OBJECTS
The Portrait Mode finds it difficult to focus on small objects and objects with complex borders. Therefore, only use it when you want to capture a large subject, like a person.
SWITCH ON CAMERA GRID
This is important on any camera. However, it is doubly important here. Activating camera grid here gives you greater control over straightening and aligning the subject. Go to Phone Camera & Settings and open Camera Grid to make sure that the subject is properly centered.
TURN ON NORMAL PHOTO MODE
By default, Apple provides a setting that saves extra copies of your photos without applying the Portrait depth effect. This will take up more space, but your original pictures will be saved to your phone. You can enable this setting in Settings > Photos & Camera.
DO THINGS IN BRIGHT SPACE
When you try to use this mode in low-light conditions, the Portrait Mode software will find it difficult to know what should be in focus. This would lead to a distorted blur on your photo. Therefore, you should always make sure you are in a well-lit area before you use Portrait Mode.
