How to start your perfect iPhone selfie
One of the most important steps with any photo is getting your basic setup right, but luckily the iPhone makes this quick and easy. If you want to highlight anything in the foreground all you have to do is double tap the object and a yellow box will appear, focusing this part of the photo. To adjust the brightness simply drag the yellow sun that appears next to the box up or down.
Getting the flash wrong has ruined many a photo. So to prevent that deer in headlights look, take your flash off automatic and control it manually. To change the settings the lightening bolt in the upper left corner and just select you preferred setting.
A cross between a photo and video, live photos literally make a photo come alive. If you press down on your still photo it shows you several seconds of movement before and after the photo was taken. To turn this on or off click the multi-rimmed circle in the upper centre of your camera frame. When highlighted yellow it’s on.
