Apple this afternoon shared a new ad designed to show off the Portrait Lighting feature on the iPhone X.
Called “Studio in your pocket,” the ad features a woman who pulls out her iPhone X and sees an entire studio’s worth of lighting equipment pop up around her.
Portrait Lighting, available on both the front and rear-facing cameras of the iPhone X, is designed to allow you to add studio quality lighting effects to your images, either while taking a shot or during the editing process afterwards.
According to Apple, Portrait Lighting uses sophisticated algorithms to calculate how facial features interact with light, allowing the data to create unique lighting effects like Natural Light, Studio Light (lights up your face), Contour Light (adds dramatic shadows), Stage Light (spotlights your face against a dark background), and Stage Light Mono (Stage Light, but in black and white).
Apple has shared several other iPhone X and iPhone 8 videos showcasing the Portrait Lighting feature, including “Portrait of Her,” “A New Light,” and a video titled simply “Portrait Lighting” that explains how the feature was developed.
Apple has also shared several tutorial videos designed to each iPhone users how to use Portrait Lighting.
