New Camera Effects From iPhone 8 Plus Enhanced Portrait Mode


Who doesn’t love a good picture? That is the reason why every major smartphone company is investing heavily in its camera technology. The same is expected from Apple. It has included a wide range of new camera effects to its all-new iPhone 8 Plus.

The iPhone 7 Plus introduced the raved portrait mode last year. This year we saw something entirely new as five cool lightning settings are introduced in the iPhone 8 Plus. The camera mode is called ‘portrait lightning’, which utilizes that dual camera functionality to adjust lightning around the subject you are focusing on for the different effects. Along with that, facial recognition technology plays a massive role as these effects revolve around the detection of the human features.

Below I Have Mentioned All The 5 Five Lightning New Camera Effects

Natural Light

This is the first portrait lighting setting that you can see in the iPhone 8 Plus. The natural light is pretty similar but not exactly the same as iPhone 7 Plus portrait mode function. When showcasing an in-depth feel in the captured photos, your subject will appear in focus which will be against a blurred background.

Studio Light

Studio light brings the professional portrait studio touch into your photographs by brightening them when you switch to this particular setting. The facial features of the subject you are focusing on like the hair, clothes along with some parts of the background will also appear brighter. This setting is best suited for the indoor areas where there is dim lighting. But there is one drawback. The effect may look less natural to us because of the skin that may appear a few shades lighter than usual.


Contour Light

This is probably by the phenomenal makeup technique of contouring. This new feature by Apple will make your cheekbones prominent. This effect highlights shadows along with making the subject’s face prominent. This will give it a more distinct and clear look comparable to the Kim Kardashian’s Beauty Contour kit.

Stage Light

It is by far the most dramatic effect out of all the five new camera effects. Stage light beautifully captures just your subject, while it blacks out the rest of the background. When you switch to this setting, you will see a circle which will appear on the screen to locate the subject that you are targeting at. This will direct the light right on the subject’s face before you’ve captured just the outline of your subject.

Stage Light Mono

Stage light and stage light mono are pretty much the same. Just one feature makes them different. In stage light mono, the highlighted subject area appear as black and white.

Wrapping It Up

So there you have all the lighting effects that Apple has placed in the iPhone 8 Plus. With these effects you won’t be needing those fancy DSLR cameras as you can take extraordinary clicks with the iPhone 8 Plus’s enhanced portrait mode.
