iPhone 7 Plus Portrait Mode
Curious about the iPhone 7 Plus portrait mode and if the dual camera really creates a blurred or bokeh background that rivals a DSLR camera?
Well, it’s definitely not perfect but I’m very excited with the results it’s produced so far. Take a look at this shot from my friend Chantal of Miss Chantal Cares.
How To Use The iPhone 7 Plus Portrait Mode
Here are written instructions for how to use the beta Portrait mode in the iPhone 7 but you can scroll down to the video below if you want to see it in action in a short demo video.
1. Open the native iPhone 7 Plus camera.
2. Swipe to access portrait mode.
3. The window will prompt you if you need to move farther away or increase light.
4. Take the photo. It will give you a copy of the photo with and without the depth effect.
If you run the photo through a favorite photo-editing app like I did here with the A Color Story app, you can product some really nice results.
If the lighting conditions are not great or your focal point does not have a clean edge, the outcome will leave something to be desired.

And what if you don’t have an iPhone 7 Plus? You can still achieve the bokeh effect in your iPhone photos with blurring apps such as AfterFocus or Pixomatic. You can see a tutorial on AfterFocus here.
