1. Intro: Hi, guys. My name's Rob Price. I'm here to teach you all about how to get better use out of your iPhone camera. So I'm gonna give you some tips. Tricks and some settings were going to go through things like panoramas, filters, editing, cropping, slow motion frames per second, all sorts of different sort of technical sand in terms which aren't really that technical. Once you get into them on, it's gonna help you take better photos. Do better videos with your phone and understand what it is that you're doing. So if you're into this kind of thing and you want to do my coarse, let's get started. Now there's 18 lessons in total. All you need is an iPhone eight or a book to get going. In the videos, I use an iPhone X are so that you can see what kind of phone it is. I would love you to get started. Let's go 2. Lesson 1 3d Touch: Hi, guys. A doing? Welcome to lesson one. Lesson one is all about three D Touch. This is a quick tip to get you started. As you can see here, we've got the camera. I cut the camera icons normally on the top left. I believe on most iPhones, but I've dragged it down to the bottom. He is just for ease of access to. So we're gonna do a thing with three d touch. What you gonna do? Put your finger on the camera. Reuter. Hold on and then you get this menu. Turn up. So you got take portrayed selfie. Take portrayed record video and take selfie. So if you let your finger girl one of those, that's what happens. It takes you straight to that mode rather than messing about going into the camera. It's just a quick wagon and interesting. Obviously we can slide up on hold on a game on Get your video. This is recording face down. At the moment, we return it face up. It's recording the camera again. There on. We can use that to use the other options as well. So let's do a take a portrait. Selfie. Now this It doesn't work without a person in. So I'm gonna shave it about that night. So just to reiterate, just say you know what to do. Three D touch. Hold on the camera. Get your man you up. Choose what you want straight in there. No matter how you enjoyed that one. Let's move on. 3. Lesson 2 Focus and Exposure: So let's say we got into our camera married. So let's click the camera and then let's move over to our set here on Let's do just a photo , OK? So you can see I've got this market for in this hand this telephone just different things for us. Toe Look at while I'm particularly what to do. Pilots have more foam around this way with the volume buttons on the top, because then you can use it like a camera. So use this is the shooter bond. If you just press it, it would take a photo right there. But what we're gonna do is we're gonna learn how to do, I think will focus. So have a look at my phone here. What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna touch on the part of the image that I want to be in focus. So let's just run that speaker. Can you see that the hand and the phone have gone slightly at focus? Let's show it to the hand and then back to the speaker. If I wanted to, I could hold onto that focus. But it's holding more finger on the button when we get this thing called a a auto locks before moved. Now the focus stays there. It doesn't adjust it all. If I press that again now, move. Can you see? When I pointed out the phone, it's in focus on a project speaker. It's in focus with So what? We're going to focus on the speaker. I'm gonna take a picture. Just let's use these buttons on the top. That's it. That's how you focus. You also notice with the focus that you've got this sunshine picture, so what you can do is a key you thought more finger on their slowed up. We'll give you MAWR exposure, which means it's letting more light into the camera will take it down, and it will make it darker you'll find with an iPhone. Normally outdoors, it needs just a little bit of extra lights so you can adjust that or you can leave. It is automatic just in the middle there, so that's focus and exposure 4. Lesson 3 Camera Settings: welcome to lessen. Three less than three is all about your camera settings. So if you go into your settings up on, then scroll until you find the word camera. Which is that a lot of things to go on in this one. So let's have a look at what we've got. Uh, preserve settings means if you've used your camera import right, married before Andi, every time you want to launch the camera, you want it to be in portrait mode. Then you can keep this turned on in green. There also, if you've used like filters or you've used exposure settings and stuff like that, you can also leave that on on in here. We've got live photo come to life photo later on by Lloyd to leave that on. So that's in you. Preserve settings grid. Now the Griff is really interesting. So if I go to my camera, can you see these lines here? This is called the Rule of Thirds. We're gonna go into this a bit later on, but these lines, basically the subjects of your image, should cross these lines. But I'll explain that that's about photography, not the settings. So let's go back. Listen, this is the grid there, that so it's set up. If you go to settings and turn that off and then into the phone, you'll see that that's not there. Now I like to have agreed on the grid house, you Teoh level photographs. Andi, make sure that everything's in the line. I like things in life. It's important you got another thing here called scan QR codes. Now you've seen those Barker's I'll put one on the screen there for you. Basically, if you see these on a product or you see them, you know, on a business card or something like that, then when you open your fair, an app on point your camera at one of those, it will scan it and take you off to a website. So very simple. Now we've got all the stuff which is recording video, these air, the settings for video. I'm going to go into that a bit later on slo mo video. So him again, we're going to that a bit later on. Do you want to record sound stereo? Yes, you do. Of course you do on, then the all important way that you're going to capture photos. Now, high efficiency will give you a file name called H E R I C on your phone. These are quite difficult to open. Unless you got something like photo shop on a computer, you can put it on most compatible, which will give you like a J peg image, which you can open on pretty much anything. But it does use more space on your phone. So if you're worried about storage, the best thing to do is set this on high efficiency. So then we've got these different bits here high dynamic range, which I'm gonna talk to you about later on. So, basically, if you set your phone like this to start off with, keep you grid on all the time. Whether you want to scan QR codes or not, that's entirely up to you. I just leave the sentences. They are, I would personally. But the format has high efficiency as well, so that some of the settings with a camera for the iPhone 5. Lesson 4 Timelapse: Welcome to the full. We've all seen pictures like this before where everything moves very, very fast. Now, this is called a time lapse video. What happens here is you set your phone on the time upsetting. Obviously, it needs to be very still. You consent, But you can tell this picture all this video was taken over a long period of time. I just brother against you. See it on what happens with the time lapse video is your phone takes a picture every second or every two seconds. Or ever you've set, it'll pass on this resort in video is what comes out the end. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna go out with that in the settings there. So go into your camera and I've got my mind set on time lapse already. So all we need to do press the button on it starts filming. I put my hand in. Okay. Why not that See what we get? He said that move really quick so that you can tell that everything sped up. So if we go back to the original video, you can see how that example might work. Time left is fantastic. if you've got sunrise. Oh, the sun's going down some set. If you've got something where your camera can be still a long time, then it's really nice. Say, for instance, she was setting up a party or, you know, there was a birthday party or something like that, and you were there extra phone that you wanted to do a time lapse of the actual event. You could do that as well. But yeah, that's what time that doors. So basically, you press the camera button. Obviously, you call your options here, but when you get to time, that's it's best actually to film these this way landscape, because that's a video. Cameras are. So yeah, get on time that press the button and away you go. Just leave it running. Remember that time lapses do take time, so you know, to record a good time lapse, I would say you want about 25 minutes half an hour on a little bit of space on the phone and also 23. So that's a quick overlook off time lapse 6. Lesson 5 Top Down Pictures: Hi, guys. Welcome to Lessen Five. This is a quick tip. Again, you'll notice that when we press the camera and then going to photo, we've got this cross in the center. Now this cross does have a purpose. So, for instance, if we get some playing cards which I have here, let's put say to just on the screen now do there to that we want to do an overhead shot of one of these cards. Now, to make sure that our pictures level, What we need to do is get across is due on the red heart cause it's quite difficult for you to see what the boys, when these two crosses are dead in line change. Could a lot that that means that your picture is absolutely dead straight up now, obviously, the focus and stuff is a bit different, but can you see have across moves? Not that. So when you're doing a top down picture, I put an example by the side just there to make sure that your dead straight down, which is the best view lineup to crosses top down pictures. Easy 7. Lesson 6 Fast Access: So when your phone's locked and you want to access your camera as quickly as possible, tap the screen. Hold down the camera I can't on. There's all your camera settings straight they're ready to use. So one more time you tap the screen. There it is. Hold it down. This is while the phone's locked as well, so you can still take photographs handy. If you just pull in the phone in and out and you're on holiday or something like that, you know you want to keep it locked. Also, I'll show you this world with every quickly. So their icon, which is the torch now on my iPhone exile when I'm putting my fair. In a way, there's the choice there. You can see, um, when I got to put it on charged, I hold my thumb in that position and it does actually turn the torch on, which is quite annoying. Um, without me really wanted to. So perhaps not in the best position, that one, but that's a quick way of accessing the camera 8. Lesson 7 The Pano Setting: Let's talk about panoramas now. Panoramas or Pano, as it's known in the camera is a wide shot which is stitched together with a group of photographs. I'm gonna show you how to use that. This picture here was taken in Milan and it was taken at less. Carla, which is a ballet in the broad in the center of the land, actually tells you up here, which we're going to talk about later on with location and your photographs. So what you do is to do this kind of shop is getting camera, Not this. How did you scrolled across until you find one that say's panic. Now you got instructions on the phone straightaway. So, um, it says here, move iPhone continuously when taking a panorama. So what you do is pressed upon on slow down. It gives you instructions on what to do. And it shows you the picture as it's going along on, Let's just to get an idea. And then what happens is it's got a nice wide picture of what's going on there on my desk. You can see that. Put it down here to say you can see Yeah, So that's made up of a group of photographs. It's not just one, so it's a way of getting a big scene. Say, for instance, you are on a beach and you want to get the whole beach in and photographed for Iran's mountains or somewhere really cold to look at. It's better with a panoramic if everything in that picture is step. So just give that some thought. But, yeah, that's the pan of set in. There is no more to it than follow the instructions on that one. 9. Lesson 8 The Grid: welcome to lessen A. This is about just taking standard photo. So we're gonna take a landscape photo, which means the phone goes horizontally instead of vertically on. What we're gonna do is we're gonna look at this thing, this grid, these white lines on the phone. We're gonna use those to place the objects in the right position to make the photograph more aesthetically pleasing. So, for instance, if report that hand just over to the one side, it's not quite as nice as if it goes through that line, can you see what I mean? So what would you focus on that on that called the rule of thirds? Because it split into three squares birth wise. So what focused on the hand? And if I take that fate, it do that. If you wanted to do it with phone, for instance, I'd always like to get it across the line through the center. That's your rule of thirds again. So using the grid is important if you got your phone this wide, keeping stuff in line. So the edge of the speaker, let's focus on the speaker said. And then when you look at the photograph, everything is already put that against the plan or it's really close so you can put Straighten that way. Maybe, but you get the idea. Try and get things straight as you can. Obviously, these air rules and rules are meant to be broken for generally photos that are aesthetically pleasing. Do 10 t follow the rules so that using the grid on that is the rule of thirds. 10. Lesson 9 Filters: Lesson nine filters. So open your camera and at the top here you'll see you have to this option and at the moment is size original. Now let's turn the camera around, and what you'll see with this is we can move along, split like the old into the ground fields, and we can use these to change the colors of the town. The debt, whether it's black and white or color stuff like that. Before you take the picture, you can also I'll show you you can. Also, if we're taking a photograph like this, you can do it. So that's changes. Let's have a black and more picture of that hand was Silvertone, as it says, there can see that and then type of picture. There's all factor. So then, when you look through your photo library, your picture is saying was black and white. Now there is another way of doing this, so we take a color photograph this time, so let's go back on our field twos. Scroll down, take a normal focus if you go into operators and pick this last one impressed the edible. We've got the facility to add these filled at a later date, impress the filter button and then scroll through. Now what you can do is when you get to say, Let's go black and white So it's the biggest difference when we get to black and, like, war it like that. You can tap the photo and see what it's like compared to the original. And it would just go back to the one that you're trying to edit to. Okay, so maybe you like this setting so repressed, done maybe, you know, happy without setting. So maybe we could go back into the fields is still there. Look for you to change, impressed, so that's now saved. If we're going to add it again, tap it. You can still see the original, which is really cool, which means you can always go back and change it. So if I was going to use filters on a photograph, I would always put them on after taking a picture never before, so that 11. Lesson 10 Editing: so editing The photo is all down to how the person that's editing it wants it to look. So what we're gonna do, we're gonna do a little shock just of these playing cards like that? This is a picture that we're looking at so you can use to forms and zoom right in. The quality of these cameras nowadays is absolutely unbelievable. So here's our photograph that we've just taken. You can use two thumbs or two fingers to zoom in and out. Look at the photograph. The quality of these pictures nowadays is absolutely believable. So what we're gonna do is go through locker basic headed to make this picture look a little bit better. So we can, of course, use one of the filters that we just used. Finished playing cards seemed to have that old sort of fashion conduct field. Let's try and pick something read color. That's a dramatic cold. It started again. I think maybe if we're gonna put this on Instagram Instagram got what's called a 1 to 1 ratio so square so you can sit that I can make that a square just with this tour here, this tool here for the crop. Okay, so I'm not happy there. The car bomb in the car is level. So what we can do? I said it again, going to our crop tool. And we have three settings on this one. We have this one here. This is the top one. Uh, that's our rotation. So let's do the rotate first, his levels. You can't what's rapidly. Okay, and then let's go into edit again. Let's just see what these do. This is a cross in the minors, is the colors. I think it looks better when it's a little bit brighter like that. Okay, now let's go into more setting. So this is the brilliance. You'll see what it does. I can't even less viable things. Highlights. This is the white shadows. Blacks contract with a little bit more. That's it on the broad names Black Point that point. How much in the picture for prints? War cold. Just think of the stone on snow season. If it's cold, it's blue. I was born. It's some shine to this on intense. Now you can add color to, but you're sliding down greens at the top thing for the get back. This is all down to you. Sharpness speaks for itself definition, the more definition this sharp of the image, but it can introduced noise into the picture noise reduction. Now, this would be for a sort of nighttime photography, however, the iPhones really good at night time. But if you've ever got a grainy picture, the grain on the picture is called noise. It's not called like dot since the flubber. So with this, you could reduce the noise, praising it that way and then vignette or help some people. Big Nettie All right, vignette as this cool shadow to the outside or white thing I actually like. A bit of vignette makes the picture look of the Arctic. So there's our photo on a press. Doing on the picture is editing. So our original way did as a live photograph. There's a finished image. I think that's really cool. So it's worth going through all of the different tools exposure, the brilliance, the I mean yet the allies, the shadows and everything just to try and improve your photos, because the difference from one photo to another is massive there. So that's just a quick way of editing photos 12. Lesson 11 Live Photos: welcome to lessen 11. This is about live photos. So what we're gonna do is go into settings. I get anti camera. We're gonna check that this is turned on him. You'll see in preserve settings, plant about life photos. Okay. I don't want you to after Tueni's on enough all the time, So this will automatically work every time you open the camera. So let's do take a picture. So when I take a picture this time, it says live at the top. Did you see that? I'll just do it once more live. Maybe if I did this, there would be more parents. So this is what my phone took just now as a live photo. It says live. But then you see that if I help my finger on this, it lets me script that Can you see that there's movement? Imagine, this is a person on their running about. So you take a picture with kids or a football match something you want to get a really good photograph so that his into the live picture. So that's hold on. You got more here. You see, I've moved so I can pick. So say I like that position. Well, that one. Thank you. This one, Whichever position you want it to bay, you can slide to there and use that is your picture. So it gives you say a second before you take a picture and probably about second after. I'm not sure of the exact amount of time, but that's about what it is. So it gives you a bit of a preview if you got somebody that's, you know, quite foresee, when you're taking pictures and they want you to take loads of them, then this is the best way to do it. Have its own life. Then you can scrub through and find the best one. There is also another method which I'm about to show you now. So that is the live Let's move onto the next one. 13. Lesson 12 Burst Mode: so using the same camera again. Let's load it this time. Ever in photo mode, what we're gonna do is put in front of this camera, and this time I'm going to do a thing called burst mode. So what I'm gonna do is just throw some of these cards and I'm gonna hold my thumb over the shooter, but taking a picture, so I'm gonna just drop some cards in there. Okay, so you see here 1st 72 photos before press Select. This is giving me now a full list of all of those pictures from the very beginning. So let's go back and start. You remember, we drop some cards. Uh, let's go right back to the very beginning. Uh, let's have a look. So let's find a favorite. Okay, you've got blood. Karbaschi's let's keep that one there anymore with blood cards. Let's just keep going through one. Drop it in there, just as an example will keep this one here sport cool. Different parts of the front man. This goes smooth box, more cars going down. All right about that one. So imagine this was again a family picture that's throwing a little one up in the air, catching them and, you know, gamma football stuff at the park. And you, you didn't have time to set up the shop. But you wanted to get a lovely family picture so you could just take loads like this. Just hold your film on, do the burst, and then select the pictures later on when you get home when you've got time to actually do it. So we've selected six favorites. Okay, I'm I don't want the rest of the pictures. So what I'm gonna do is I'm only going to keep the six favorites. You can, of course, keep everything. If you're that kind of person, you want to store everything. But personally, I would only keep the six favorites said we've got on them when we go to our pictures. The last six are these first pictures so that you can see. And of course, you can edit these like we did in a couple of lessons ago. So, no, this is quite call. With cards dropping down and stuff like that. You could make that really call for your instagram, make it a square picture if you wanted to, But that's how burst work So if you've got a fast moving subject and you want to make sure you've got the picture or you've got somebody sort of spinning round and looking at the camera and you want to capture their hair moving, but you don't take just one photo at a time, this is the best way to do it, so that first. 14. Lesson 13 Searching: Lesson 13 Let's talk about location. So with your phone when you take a photographic records where you've taken the picture. So, for instance, today I took this photograph. It would show a map, but I'm on airplane mode. This would show you exactly where this photograph, which happens to be more keyboard on the decks right now, was taken on. That's got the location as well. So, for instance, when we go down Teoh panoramas, we know we've got one last Carla. So though there's the sort of address they're it. Well, I told you exactly where you were, so that if, for instance, you got a lot of photographs on your phone you wanted to search by area or exist, and you could do that as well. So there is a really fantastic facility on where you compressed search. And then you go Look, you've got my lamp and it shows you all the pictures there in the land on September. So I'm in terms right now, and these are the pictures that have been taken actually today on my phone. Also, listen, this is some kind of apple with if it's open keyboard, look what happens and by some with me. I'm not told, found that that's a computer keyboard, but it automatically knew. So if you go into the search facility. So, for instance, you taking a picture of your cat or your dog for your Children. Uh, we have 19 year pictures after one of the Children, and when you search, it will bring up all of those things automatically. So that's the photos Goldie Pictures in just there. So even obviously go through and have a look of them in any way you want to. But the search thing that I think is absolutely fantastic really good. Just a good way. Say, for instance, if you've been on holiday and you wanted to look a specific amount of pictures that you just took, where you were, that 15. Lesson 14 Albums: Let's, um, 14 albums now This is your photos up again. I've got some different stuff in here. Friends, Puppies look lovely. Picture comes from what's happened came in today s so say for instance, I wanted Teoh use that picture and I wanted him on album called Animals. So let's do a new album, Saif. And then it said, Which picture do you wanna put in there? So let's put this one. Don't now that we've got album called Animals. Obviously these albums are unlimited. The good thing about this is if your link Teoh clad and got annoyed Pad or High Mac or anything to do with Apple. All of these albums are replicated on all these systems, so once you've done it once on your phone works with everything. 16. Lesson 15 Portrait Mode: Let's talk about portrait mode now put on the camera app and I slit across until I get to portray left. As you can see, the background behind me is quite blurry, which looks sort of professional, like a really camera kind of thing. Wrong to do. So I'm gonna just turn off the flash on Let's do our focus. Let's just take a picture. So that's May in all my glory. Sit in there now what we can do. We've got extra options when we edit. This time, it's up there. You've got F 4.5 now the F means aperture on a camera. So the wide open the hold, they're more like to get into the camera on their smaller the hole in the front of a camera , less like so the less like a gets in, the number gets bigger, so let's F 14. That means lots of stop will be in focus. You notice the background, let me go down to 1.4 look, backgrounds numbing. It's all blurred to be realistic. With real cameras, I'd say something like 2.8 is about right, and of course you could do all of the edits again. Let's go back up to Yeah, I could know that paycheck. So you're notice we've got things like natural light. And then when I click that I could move it around, give me studio like contour lights, Slightly different stage like looking weird, But it's a different kind of setting. You can use that stage like mano a mano is black and white on then high key light monitors . Very clever stuff. Look, there's no background behind me at all. I really like the console like, I think that's a very nice way taking pictures. So let's take a cool selfie. Have you got on while we're at it? Oh dear, let's have a look at how we could change that in the back. That's public Chinese debt. I'm ready, please. It's about picture you got. So you see the 13 or more T shirt changing from in focus? Do you do that? Change it. I'm sure that this came in about iPhone eight. Where were jacket? It's a good system if you don't like, obviously, but that support right now 17. Lesson 16 Video Settings: Let's talk about more settings, so go into your settings there, Get onto your camera App. Now, this is about video setting specifically. So what we're gonna do is looking and record video so quick you've got a few ways of looking at this. First of all, 7 20 is what old TV's used to be in its to float that the normal standard nowadays is 10 80 at 30 FPs. Now I'm not sure if you're aware, but FPs is stands for frames per second, so normal sort of cinematic films will be filmed at 24 frames per second. What that means is, every time you watch a film is an actual photograph 24 times every second. So the higher the frame rate, the Mawr photographs, So this will give you sort of a higher speed. Look, this one will give you more of a cinematic look. I wouldn't bother with seven. So 10 80 10 80 is the height of your TV or screen at 1000 and 80 pixels by 1920 pixels. This 14 k is double the size bicycling, so baseball always use more this space in four K, much storage on your phone in 10 80. If you're only gonna watch stuff on your phone or you know you happy with the quality of that, stick to that all the time. You save loads of stories on your phone. If you want the highest possible quality, I would go for four K 24 friends of Second. To be fair on a firm, you're probably not going to notice the difference that much on a TV you would you ever read down here? Look, it gives you some specifications about what each one does and how much. One minute videos. So if you look at that, look the highest 11 minute video at the highest setting, we used 400 megabytes. So if you've got, say, a one gigabytes storage on your phone, which would you don't have Nowadays you have 500 gig. Two minutes is going to use one of those games so you can see that can use loads. And there's a data What it is really cool. So let's stick Teoh four K 24 frames per second. That would be right for your video settings. So let's do some film it. So I've set the camera up here. Okay. 24. You can see that on there. Just it's up there. Let's start the video going. The video camera on this is just amazing. It focuses really, really close. Obviously, you can still use you focus tools like you did before. See how it focuses that on the speaker on back to the fingers. Very cool. Good thing. Get with the media. When we get it back in this screen, it just priced right away. You can see where we did the focus there, and then we focused back on the fingers. Yeah, that's really good. Quality is absolutely amazing. So if you wanted to add it, that video you can see through here we've done a little bit of filming. Always, unless you're gonna film for instagram stories where he'd have you found vertically. Pretty much everything else has got to be landscape because that's the way TV is. Remember, if you're taking pictures, you can go square oblong. You know what, right across portrait landscape, whatever you want. But if you doing video thinkI TV every time because that's the way it needs to be. So we've done the video. Let's just have a quick look. This is a fast way of doing it. But I'm just scrubbing through that trap. You can see as I move my finger, you get this little yellow box Now that is the start points now, and this is the end point. So, for instance, if that's all we wanted, we could press Don. It says, Do you want to save it? Is a new click or save over the older so we'll save it is a new cliff. Let's go in and do what we did before. So we've got all of these filters stuff, which is really cool. I think we had a dramatic tingly Let's go through some different settings. So we did exposure to bring it up a little bit. Yeah, let's pretend we know exactly what we do, and it sounds all call with all the center. But you practice with these. Your pictures, your videos and everything get altogether better, pretty much very well, because it's not just what the cameras don't you that some input into how your photographs look afterwards, So we're just gonna just change your settings. All right? People have been yet which I love a bit of in yet. Okay, now let's have a look. All media got a little bit of saving to do one type long. How much better is that? Look straight away. Okay, let's go back to the original. This is the original video. Do you see? It looks sort of flat in the colors. Let's go over to our new one like I avoid Bring that is in a cooler 20 times better than the original. So it's worth spending the time looking at these videos and making them your own, So film it with the edits in mind. So, for instance, if you want to create a old style video and film old style kind of things to go with it and you know you can add music to it, stuff like that. But maybe that's for another course. This just at the moment, is just to show you how to use the tools in the camp. 18. Lesson 17 Slow Motion: you might recognize one of these. This is called a fidget spinner on where the fidget spinner. It spins really fast so we can record it in slow motion. I'm gonna show you how to do it. So first of all, let's go over to our slo mo settings. I'm going to go into settings again. Already there. I'm gonna get a video. Slo mo. We've got two options. We've got 10 80 p at 240 frames per second. 0 10 80 p at 120 frames per second. Now, if we did about 240 frames per second, that means there is 10 times as much information per second as 24 frames per second, so we can play it 10 times slower. So that's what we're gonna do this. Let's go out of our settings, go into the phone net, going to slow moat. Now, I'm gonna put the fidget spinner that say that you can see on the video. This is the speed that it's actually going. Let's just let that go. I think these things are fantastic. Okay, let's stop it. What now? Let's We're on our slo mo in our camera. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna film this with mostly by now, spend it sank on a spade, and then just stop it. Let's have a look at that Flying back. How cool is that? So with anything that you want to see slow slo mo is the way forward. So if you've got somebody jumping up and down doing tricks on a bike or I really down apart , you want to do some slow motion action. This is the way to do it. Use the slow mo thing on your phone and play it back. And of course, we can do it added. So we've got a lot of same settings before. Let's go to Dramatic because we like to that one, didn't I? Let's just for vignettes. Only this time. Okay, good. I really have even yet on now it's saving the video, so you see that the video looks better already. So let's show me a little bit like that to the clip of light cigarettes. A nuclear video wired all this messing about start Let's go to our photos and there is a slow motion version. So that's how slow Mo works 19. Lesson 18 HDR: Hi, guys. Welcome to this lesson. This lesson is all about the hay HDR setting in your iPhone. So if we go into the camera mode here and going to photo, you'll notice that you've got a HD or written at the top there that can either be turned on or off just by tapping there. Also, you've got some settings inside the camera settings on your phone. So if we just go over to that, uh, here it is is a thing called smart HDR, and you can turn that on and off. So I'm gonna talk to you about those kind of things. Basically hates. Deal is easy to it. Describe with a photograph. So there's two pictures. The one on the left is taken without HDR. The one on the right is taken with Haiti are hasty R stands for high dynamic range. So what it does is imagine The picture on the left has just been taken normally, with normal exposure on all the settings that we've already bean through, the one on the ROI them has three photographs on their lay. It is a sandwich, so imagine on the middle of the sandwich, like the filly is the same as the regular picture on the left. On the top of the sandwich on the HDR picture is a brighter photo, and then the one underneath. The feeling on the bottom is a darker photo, so the one on the bottom is under exposed. The one on the top is over exposed, and the one in the middle is the same as a regular, and then they're sort of blended together to give you a much more detailed image. This works really well on something like outside photographs of you ever had locked him, Ah, white sky when you tried to take a picture of somebody standing still and there's no been no detail in the clouds. Well, hate Dre's for you. Hasty are doesn't work very well with moving objects. So static objects, you know, like not this house here or things like, you know, if you've got somebody standing in front of, I have never a fantastic thing to look at looking, imagine bridge or amazing tall but the skies all blowing out and it's all white. Maybe try to hate the are setting Now in your phone, you can go. Let's just turn it the right way around. You have two ways of doing this. You can go turn on camera like this and then go. Hey, hdr, turn it on enough! Oh, Apple is very kindly given. Is the facility to do smart HDR? What Small hates the orders is it will take a photograph based on if it thinks it needs to do the hasty or settings. So if you're doing like a landscape or something like that, you'll notice when you experiment with the phone. If the subject matter is right that you taking pictures off, then HDR will automatically appear at the top of the photograph. You also got the option to keep the original like when we went back on saw their regular and HD more hasty MOJ HDR image. It will keep both for you so that you compare. So that's Hey HDR high dynamic range. Have a look at some examples on the Internet because they're interesting to see. This kind of style probably isn't for everyone, but it's something different, and we'll give you sort of more dynamic range to your images, making them more detailed. So that's high dynamic range.
