iPhone Portrait Mode Magic


iPhone 11 Portrait Mode Magic


In “Portrait” mode, iPhone lets you blur the background. The same feature that blurs the background can also turn the background black or white. The effect is stunning. Makes a photo look very professional, as if it were shot in a studio.

John Warren – works just as well with color, or B&W


Open your camera, swipe to “Portrait” mode and start experimenting. Great fun.

    A whole new palette from which to create, Rick. You are having fun, I believe. And I believe, also, you are damned good at it! Carry on! High Tech is your flying carpet.
