Top Tips To Take Better Pictures On iPhone 11

Taking pictures with iPhones has always been easy and joyful, but if you know how to leverage the power of iPhone 11, you can get way more from it

No matter which one you choose, iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max, you will notice a leap in camera performance in comparison with earlier versions.

All of them get another sensor on the rear, making the total number of iPhone 11 increase to two while those of the others are three. However, improvement can also be spotted at software, not just hardware.

Taking pictures with iPhones has always been easy and joyful, but if you know how to leverage their power, you can definitely get more from the device. Here are some top tips:

Quick Settings Are Still There

If you have not noticed yet, the toggle for timer, the function users usually use to take group photos, is not where it used to be anymore. Apple has relocated it along with those for filters because they are not used that much to have that prominent place. That move results in a cleaner look, which many users will love, but you will have to make some adjustments before you take the first group photo.

If you are holding the iPhone 11 or its cousins vertically, tap on the arrow at the top of the screen to view all the toggles, like live, flash, aspect ratio, photos, filters, and timers

If you are holding the iPhone 11 or its cousins vertically, tap on the arrow at the top of the screen to view all the toggles, like live, flash, aspect ratio, photos, filters, and timers. When you have done, tap on the arrow again will hide the options. Another way is to swipe across the viewfinder to get to where the toggles are.

Push Night Mode To Its Limits

Using the Night Mode on iPhone 11 is not something you have to put much thought on. Every time your phone determines that there is not enough light around, Night Mode will be switched on, and the icon for it will appear right next to the arrow. It is a moon with a few lights, and when the icon is yellow, it means the mode is on.

If the timer is set between 2s and 9s, the pictures will be brighter, but you risk overexposing them. On the other hand, you will have darker photos with 5s to 1s

By looking at the button, you will also know the length of time it takes to capture a photo; for example, 1s means one second. This is how long you have to hold the device still after pressing the button for taking pictures.

You do have control to a certain level with the Night Mode. If you want to make some adjustments or turn the function off, press the icon and then move the slider located near the shutter button. If you set it to 0, the Night Mode will be disabled. You can also adjust how much light the device lets through with the slider.

If the timer is set between 2s and 9s, the pictures will be brighter, but you risk overexposing them. On the other hand, you will have darker photos with 5s to 1s. Since you have that much customization, there is no reason not to play around with the function to see what you can have.

Fine-tune The Zoom

No matter which one you are having at hand, the main camera is still the wide one, or the 1x you see on the camera app

The next time you need to take an up-close picture of something, remember to take advantage of all the lenses of the iPhone 11 because they are truly powerful. The iPhone 11 features a wide camera and an ultrawide-angle camera on the back, while the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max have an extra telephoto camera. All of those three have 12 megapixels.

No matter which one you are having at hand, the main camera is still the wide one, or the 1x you see on the camera app. To switch to another camera, zoom in or out 2x or 5x.

Users have the choice to fine-tune the zoom level, either in or out. Here is how to do that: press and hold the zoom level and drag the zoom tool. By making use of the zoom wheel, you can zoom from 0.5x to 10x.

Remember that when you use something other than the 0.5x, 1x, and 2x, the quality of the photos will be affected since the device will have to zoom digitally.

Zoom Out On Photos, After The Fact

All of the three iPhones released this year can take some fantastic photos with the ultrawide-angle camera, but not many people know about this hidden feature. After you have taken a picture with the telephoto or the wide lens, the ultrawide-angle camera can help you zoom out on those pictures.

For example, if you took a group photo but then realized that you had missed a person. You can open the picture in the Photos app and zoom out to bring him or her in with the crop tool.

In order to use this cool feature, head to the Settings app, and select Camera. Next, scroll down until you see an option called Photo Capture Outside the Frame, turn it on when you see it. If you wait after 30 days after the photos were taken, this feature will not be effective anymore because all of the information not captured in the pictures will be deleted.

For now, this function can work on some occasions only. Sometime even when you see a square-star icon, an indication that the camera captured more information outside of the frame, you will see nothing more when you zoom out.

This feels like a bug in iOS 13, and we will have to wait and see how Apple addresses it.
