Basic iPhone Photography tips on Exposure, Focus and White Balance
I’ve had a few people email me and ask about the benefits of locking exposure, focus and or white balance. I thought I would take a few minutes to briefly explain. Below are two down-n-dirty video screencasts for your viewing pleasure.
I used the exposure and focus lock feature with both Camera+ and ProCamera apps on the example images below. Without having locked the exposure on the brightest areas in these images (in old school photo speak I’d say metered for the highlights) then the shadows or darkest parts wouldn’t have come out so dramatic/dark.
APP: Camera+ [I also like ProCamera, which also has this feature]
