Basic iPhone Photography tips on Exposure, Focus and White Balance

Posted on April 5th, by konstruktivist in iPhoneograhy, Tutorials, Video. 9 comments

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.


Exposure/Focus Lock

APP: Camera+ [I also like ProCamera, which also has this feature]


White Balance

APP: Camera+

    I just watched your Lynda.com video – exciting.

    I just went out and purchased an iPhone because of it, and I’m anxious to get out without my DSLR and back breaking bag of gear. I see great things on the horizon. I can’t take my eyes off of your images.

    Been a huge fan since discovering your first tutorial here, on Lofimode. Every time I watch your tuts, I have to go for a walk and just shoot something.

    Watched as you switched from almostDSLR to ProCamera to Camera+. I’m sure it wasn’t as clear cut as that and you still use some or all of them for different things.

    Would love to hear your thoughts on some of the camera replacement apps you’ve used and why you’ve moved away or toward new ones.

    Thanks for the excellent tuts and inspiring photos.

  5. I have been browsing online more than three hours lately, but I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
