How to access the camera quickly

There are several ways to open the camera.

  • On the locked screen:  you can also swipe from the right corner to the left to quickly open the camera;
  • From Control Center: Swipe down from the top right corner to access Control Center. Then tap the camera symbol;
  • In the Camera app:  press and hold it and select one of the options “Take Selfie,” “Record Video,” “Take Portrait,” and “Take Portrait Selfie” to enjoy the shortcut;
  • With Siri:  Tell Siri, “Hey Siri, open the camera” or “Hey Siri, take a selfie.”

When you open the camera, you will notice that it has changed in iOS 15, especially for the new iPhones. Let’s understand each of the buttons. First of all, at the top, tap the little arrow to open all options at the bottom.

  • Flash:  the icon in the upper left corner is the flash. By tapping on it, you can toggle it on or off;
  • Night Mode: A half-moon will sometimes appear next to the flash. This is Night Mode for better photos in the dark. We will speak of him already;
  • ProRaw: On the other side, in the top corner, there is now a new RAW icon. In it, you can take raw photos, which is ideal for photographers to edit later. So it doesn’t matter if the image is too dark. You can correct it later.
  • Live Photo:  In the upper right corner is the Live Photo option. With it activated, every time you make a click, keep the phone still for another second, and it records a mini video. To watch it, tap and hold the photo in the photo gallery.
  • 0.5x, 1x, and 3x:  this is the zoom-out or zoom-in you can give between the lenses. Tap them to zoom in or out of the object. If you swipe over them, you can choose how much closer you want to bring the object or how far away you want it. You can use up to 3x optical zoom on the iPhone 13 Pro and up to 15x digital zoom;
  • Photographic Styles: One of the new features of the iPhone 13, the “Photo Styles,” are in a menu in the lower corner and is represented by three squares. We have already talked more about it;
  • 4:3:  at the bottom, as you already know, the Flash symbol, Night Mode, and Live Photo. The next is the photo aspect. You can leave the default 4:3, “square” for Instagram, or “16:9”;
  • Timer:  Activate the timer to get ready for the photo. You can choose 3 or 10 seconds to wait before the click;
  • Filters:   the four balls are the filters you can use on the photo.

Photo and video modes

With the camera open, you can do more than take a picture or record a video. There are seven modes available on both the front and main cameras: Time-lapse (to record fast-moving videos), Slow Motion (to record in slow motion), Cinema, Video, Photo, Portrait (those photos with a blurred background ), and Panorama.

New to this generation of iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro is Cinema Mode, which is almost like Portrait Mode, only for videos. With it, you can change the object’s focus whenever you want or change it later when editing. You can see a little more about this function in use below:

Also, check out some other tips and tricks:

  • Take multiple photos simultaneously:  On new iPhones, to take a continuous photo sequence, press the camera button and, without releasing it, move it to the left. When finished, release the button;
  • Start recording video: if you keep holding the photo button, it starts recording a video. Drag your finger to the right and then release to keep the video recording mode activated;
  • Transform photos and videos:  With Live Photos turned on, tap multiple times to take photos. Then, select all these photos in the gallery, tap the share button, and “Save as video.”

Benefits of the ultra-wide-angle camera

On the iPhone 13 Pro, the ultra-wide-angle camera has been reimagined with a 92% larger aperture than the previous generation. In addition to allowing you to capture up to four times more information from a scene, its distortion is more subtle. This camera is ideal for the following photos:

  • Landscapes:  sea, mountains, canyons, beach;
  • Photos with family/friends:  in this case, the fun thing is that you can get much closer to take the photo. The tip is to be careful with the ends so as not to distort people;
  • Buildings:  depending on the inclination, it is possible to make the buildings of Avenida Paulista or the Center touch each other. The distortion that is not good for people can be poetic for construction. Don’t forget to look up;
  • New Perspectives:  Take advantage of this distortion to take pictures of murals, stretch clothes, and more.

Still speaking of the ultra-wide-angle camera, it now allows the user to capture macro photos. With this, the user can approach up to two centimeters of an object to take the photo.

This function is activated automatically when the user approaches an object. Still, it is also possible to only activate the ultra-wide and get closer to what you want to photograph to make use of this function.

Macro photography also works for videos, although the image is likely to be blurry as it lacks optical stabilization from the main camera.

Making the best portraits

There are six Studio Lighting modes on both the main camera and selfie camera: Natural Light, Studio Light, Contour Light, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono, and Bright Light Mono.

The cool thing is that it is possible to make portraits of people, objects, and animals. On the iPhone 13 Pro, you can take a portrait using the 3x camera or the 1x camera, depending on whether you want a closer portrait or more information in the photo.

Knowing Photographic Styles

With the iPhone 13, Apple brought the “Photo Styles” function. According to the company, Photo Styles give your photos a personalized look. “Unlike filters, they apply adjustments to the right areas, preserving skin tones.”

For example, choose Vibrant for brighter, more vivid photos. Rich contrast intensifies shadows and colors. Or Hot or Cold to accentuate the golden or blue tones. Just adjust once and click out. In total, these are the available modes:

  • Pattern;
  • Rich Contrast;
  • Vibrant;
  • Warm;
  • Cold.

It is also possible to customize these presets so that the clicks come out in a way that suits you best. It is worth noting that it is impossible to edit a photo with “Rich Contrast” to a “Standard” image. That is, choose wisely when to use this function.

How to use Night Mode

Night Mode is a new feature that arrived on the iPhone 11 and has been improved over the years. With optical stabilization and autofocus on the iPhone 13 Pro, you can take low-light photos without worrying about them becoming blurry.

With Night Mode, a half-moon will appear on the camera. Let the iPhone stand still for a few seconds while it captures all the photo information. See more about this mode:

  • Setting Night Mode:  tap the Night Mode ball in the upper left corner. At the bottom, slide your finger to how much exposure time you want on the camera;
  • Use a tripod to take pictures of the sky:  With the iPhone stationary on a stand, you can take an exposure of up to 30 seconds. Usually, it only allows all of this for shots in the pitch black or outdoors to capture the stars, for example;
  • Use light:  you know those birthday candles or, for example, a lightsaber? When clicking, move this point of light to “write in the air” or achieve new effects.

Tips for recording videos

  • Switching between cameras:  while recording video, you can switch between ultra-wide, wide, and telephoto cameras;
  • Zoom-in microphone: If you’re recording something and zoom in on a person, speaker, or dog, the audio pick-up is directed there. You have an audio gain where you point the camera.
  • Changing the video quality:  when you select the video option, notice that there are “HD” and “60” options in the upper right corner. Tap HD to change to 4K and 60 to change to 30. The first option changes the recording resolution, and the second option changes how many frames/scenes are recorded per second. The higher the numbers, the heavier the file;

The selfie camera on the new iPhones is also more powerful. It has TrueDepth, and Face ID, so you can use Portrait Mode and more.

  • Stories:  not caught, but it is possible to record selfies in slow motion. Select the “Slow Motion” option, move your hair, or record the heavy rain in the back. The tip is the lighter, the better the video;
  • Zoom-out: You know that thing where the iPhone camera doesn’t fit a lot of people? Turning the phone horizontally zooms out on the selfie camera, fitting more people in the photo. If you want to take a selfie without having to turn the screen, tap the little arrows that “expand” above the photo button;
  • Cinema Mode: The selfie camera also makes use of Cinema Mode. Record videos with blurred backgrounds.

There’s no shortage of options to make the most of the iPhone 13 Pro’s camera. Take advantage of these tips for your photos.
