Two photographs for you;
Same Camera, same time, same picture. The first picture taken with the iPhone in Live mode. Those brief few seconds of movement that are Live don’t translate across to WordPress, so you can’t see the movement.
Live mode on the iPhones camera has always annoyed me, I’ve never seen the point of it. Until last night that is.
There was a clip on FaceBook how to do long exposures with the iPhone. The iPhone can’t really do long exposures. There are two basic things I didn’t know; 1. In live mode, if you keep your finger on the button it records video – I didn’t know that. When you take a live video and pull it up, it displays adaptations that can be done to the picture, repeat, round and long exposure.
Whilst the iPhone can’t really do long exposures, it is a very clever piece of kit and can merge the multiple frames of a Live Photo into a long exposure. The first picture is the original Live Photo showing the ripples. The second is the long exposure where the ripples have been smoothed out. I just did not know it could do that. To be honest, I’m quite impressed.
I am now looking for opportunities to explore Live Mode.
