The new ‘Today at Apple’ photography session 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 an opportunity for iPhone and iPad users to learn various tips and tricks from professionals for a maximum productive experience with their device. Usually, the free sessions were held at Apple’s retail stores, but after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company began offering ‘Today at Apple’ sessions online.
Watch the ‘Today at Apple’ session to play with light and objects to take amazing pictures in Night mode
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.
In the 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. Here are their secret to amazing Night mode photos:
- Find the light sources that stand out and capture interest like different colored lighting, tinted windows with different glass.
- Experiment while shooting with objects and materials like light reflectors, colored plastic to create different effects.
- Edit to find the right color saturation for an image and to tell a story.
iPhone users can share their creative pictures with Apple via #TodayatApple and #ShotoniPhone hashtags. Recently, a ‘Virtual Studio: Pet Portraits‘ session was hosted by photographer Jason Nocito to teach users how to elegantly capture their fur babies. So, interested users should keep an eye out for the offered sessions at Today at Apple.
