As part of its Today at Apple sessions, Apple offered content to help users get the most out of the iPhone camera. This time around, the company shared a new video on its YouTube channel showing how to take and edit stunning night mode photos using the iPhone and the iOS Photos app.
The 8-minute video features photographer Maria Lax as well as Landon, a creative at Apple Grand Central in New York. Together, they explore the full potential of the Night Mode feature, available on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 models.
During the video, Lax and Landon explain that a good way to take great photos at night is to find some kind of light source that can make the photo more interesting. They also show how you can use simple objects like colored plastic and mesh to add real effects to your photos.
There are also tips for editing photos taken with night mode. Experts suggest that users can explore rotating and cropping photos to make them look different, or even increase contrast and saturation to achieve a more vibrant appearance.
Apple points out that while you don’t need the extra hardware, a tripod (which Apple recommends a JOBY TelePod Mobile) and an Apple Watch (to be used as a shutter remote) can be useful for getting better photos.
