As a photographer, you always want to take interesting and engaging portrait photos that stand out from the crowd. And with the advanced camera technology Apple continues to produce, it’s now easier than ever to take professional-looking portrait photos on your iPhone.

Eight tips for shooting interesting portrait photos on your iPhone

  1. Use natural light whenever possible. Natural light can add warmth and depth to your photos. It can also help to minimize shadows and enhance the overall look of your portrait.
  2. Experiment with different angles. Instead of always shooting your subject from the same angle, try changing things up by shooting from above, below, or even from the side. This can add visual interest to your photos and help to create a more dynamic composition.
  3. Play with the exposure settings. The exposure settings on your iPhone’s camera can make a big difference in the final look of your photos. Try adjusting the exposure to highlight specific areas of your subject, or to create a more moody and atmospheric portrait.
  4. Use Pivo Pod’s Smart Capture mode. Pivo Pod’s Smart Capture mode makes it easy to take photos using voice, gesture, still motion, or action capture. As a result, you can easily capture your best moments without having to worry about pressing the shutter button.
  5. Use the portrait mode. The iPhone’s portrait mode uses advanced technology to blur the background of your photos, which can help to draw attention to your subject and create a more professional-looking photo. Additionally, there are even several lighting effects that can further improve your images:
    • Studio Light, to brighten facial features.
    • Contour Light, for more dramatic directional lighting.
    • Stage Light, to isolate your subject in the spotlight.
    • Stage Light Mono, for stage light in a classic black and white.
    • High-Key Light Mono, for a grayscale subject on a white background.
  6. Try different focal lengths. The focal length of your lens can have a big impact on the overall look of your portrait. Try using a longer focal length for a more compressed, flattering look, or a shorter focal length for a more dynamic and energetic photo.
  7. Use props and accessories. Adding props and accessories to your portrait can help to add depth and interest to your photo. Try using a hat, sunglasses, or even a piece of jewelry to add a unique touch to your portrait.
  8. Edit your photos. Even the best portrait photos can benefit from a little editing. Use the editing tools on your iPhone to adjust the color, contrast, and other settings to create a photo that truly stands out. In addition to Apple’s impressive built-in editing suite, you can also try a third-party app such as Facetune. With their blurring and re-shaping and sizing tools, you should have everything you need without needing to move to your desktop.

By following these tips, you can take stunning portrait photos on your iPhone that will impress your friends and followers. So grab your phone, attach it to the Pivo Pod, and start experimenting with these techniques to take your iPhone photography to the next level.
