Apple Shares Even More iPhone Photography Tutorial Videos

Apple maintains a photography tutorial section on its website for those interested in stepping up their iPhone photography, and it's regularly updated with new videos. Apple also uploads its ‌iPhone‌ tutorial videos to YouTube.

Apple this afternoon shared four new videos on YouTube that will eventually be added to the site, covering shooting with light and shadow, shooting using the rule of thirds, trimming video on an ‌iPhone‌, and shooting a time-lapse video.





Each video is approximately 40 seconds in length, ideal for use on social media. These videos are straight and to the point, offering step by step instructions on taking advantage of different ‌iPhone‌ features.

Apple has been sharing these ‌iPhone‌ photography tutorials for well over a year, and the site has a collection of videos on capturing different types of photos, best editing practices, taking advantage of environmental factors like lighting, and more.

After seeing Pixel 3 photos taken in a dark room, I think Pixel phones which use Machine Learning to recreate the scene are way ahead of the latest iPhone. I took the photo at the same time with my iPhone Xsmax. Not sure if there was something different I could do to get nothing but a dark photo compared to Pixel photo as if the room had lights switched on.

Usually, when I make photographs in low light, I don't want them artificially enhanced to the point where it looks they were shot in bright light. That ruins what I'm trying to achieve.

Gotta admit, that rule-of-thirds guide is pretty clunky; it’s odd that there isn’t an option to hide/show grid in the Camera app.

These tips are helpful. Might seem obvious to some but still very useful to others.

these videos create some serious competition for professional photographers...

You're being sarcastic, right?

Relying on AI and various software crutches in order to "get the shot" is all well and good when all you have is your smartphone. However, there is no substitute for having a real camera w/ interchangeable lenses and an in-depth understanding of shutter speed, depth of field, f-stop, and basic rules of composition.

Apple has always been great at reducing the complex to the very simple and bringing it to the masses.
