Point, Click, and Shoot Like a Pro Using Portrait Mode
Ever wonder why some people’s photos look so professional? They could have an expensive camera. Or it could just be Portrait Mode. This feature enhances close-ups by blurring the background and keeping the subject sharp—whether you’re capturing your child’s first day of school or just taking a silly photo of your dog.
Here’s how to use Portrait Mode to take a stunning picture:
Open the Camera app and swipe left to Portrait Mode.
Adjust the distance until the yellow banner appears. You’ll need to be a few feet from your subject.
Swipe or tap under the yellow banner to choose a lighting effect.
Take your photo.
