Want to make the most of Portrait mode on your iPhone? Check out the newest “Today at Apple” video, which teaches you portrait photography tips designed to improve your directing, shooting, and editing skills.

Apple goes to great lengths to pack stellar cameras into iPhone, and they get better with every refresh. That’s one of the reasons why iPhone is, and has been for many years now, the most popular camera in the world.

It’s a real shame, then, if you carry these magnificent cameras in your pocket and don’t use them to take spectacular photos. You don’t need to be a pro photographer to get great results. Apple makes it easy for everyone.

How to shoot stellar Portrait photos

In its latest “Today at Apple” video, Apple teaches us how to make the most of the Camera app’s Portrait mode. In a little over five minutes, it can show you how to improve your setup, shooting, and editing skills on the go.

The video features Mark Clennon, a self-taught photographer from New York City, who offers his tips on capturing “powerful portraits of your own.” It looks at bringing energy and creativity to your shots, experimenting with various angles to emphasize your subject, and cropping for extra impact.

Check it out:

Clennon’s results prove you don’t need a dedicated camera and an expensive setup with professional lighting to take incredibly Portrait photos. You just need your iPhone, a willing subject, and a little bit of effort.
