Awesome Feature You Get With the iPhone 7 Plus

With each new rendition of its smartphone, Apple is getting increasingly closer to removing the gap between its iconic product and a dedicated DSLR camera. With the latest iPhone 7 Plus, one of the major selling points is Portrait Mode, which offers the ability to take professional quality portraits with a bokeh, or out of focus, background.

Here are some tips to get the most out of your portrait pictures with the iPhone 7 Plus.

First of all, to use Portrait Mode, you will need the iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 10.1 or later. Then you can get to work creating some stunning images.

Dual-Camera System

The iPhone 7 Plus introduces the first dual-camera system in its lineup — that’s two cameras that shoot as one.

The 12-megapixel, wide-angle camera features optical image stabilization to cut back on the blur associated with any motion or shaky hands, and a larger f/1.8 aperture, allowing up to 50 percent more light onto the camera sensor.

It works alongside a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with optical zoom at 2x. Portrait Mode automatically creates a depth-of-field effect that keeps faces (or whatever the subject is) in focus while delivering a beautifully blurred background.

It’s an extremely user-friendly experience, but it won’t happen on its own, so here are some tips to get you started.


When you think of a portrait, you oftentimes think of a headshot. And that’s not a bad idea with Portrait Mode, but it’s certainly not a hard-and-fast rule, by any means.

Portrait Mode uses the telephoto lens on iPhone 7 Plus, so stay within eight feet of your subject, or get even closer if you’d like. The on-screen prompts will let you know whether you need to move closer or farther away. In fact, you may be inside of eight feet and still get this message. That’s OK. Just work with it, moving in and out a bit — maybe even pointing the camera to the ground and back at your subject again to refocus — until you see a yellow box with Depth Effect written inside it.

Also, encourage your subject to be still. You’ll get the best results when there isn’t any movement. This includes you. Use a tripod and remote shutter if you need to.

From there, look carefully at your subject, especially along the edges of what you want in focus, and move the camera in or out to get just the look you want. There may be times when certain items in the shot could muddle the depth effect. The camera doesn’t know what you want in focus, so stick to simple compositions, if at all possible.
