Apple Uploads Two New Tutorial Videos for Portrait and Portrait Lighting Mode on iPhone 8 Plus

Apple on Tuesday shared a pair of mini video tutorials on its official YouTube channel, covering an all-new Portrait Lighting shooting mode on iPhone 8 Plus.

Taking advantage of the power of the A11 Bionic chip and the dual-lens camera on iPhone 8 Plus, Portrait Lighting mode (currently in beta) simulates professional studio lighting effects in real time.

Both videos are less than a minute long and to the point. They show how in just a few simple steps one can take Portrait photos on the iPhone 8 Plus and edit them to add Portrait Lighting effects. Apple offers five different Portrait Lighting modes on the iPhone 8 Plus which includes Natural Light, Studio Light, Contour Light, Stage Light, and Stage Light Mono.

This feature also uses facial detection and depth maps to capture portraits with striking shadows, spotlight effects and more. The stock Camera app includes five distinct Portrait Lighting effects:
  • Studio Light—brightens facial features
  • Contour Light—creates a more dramatic directional lighting
  • Stage Light—isolates your subject in the spotlight
  • Stage Mono—creates a stage light in a classic black and white
