    Well, I guess reprinting info from Apple is better than the idiotic “hints” that have been printed here lately.

    Time to say goodnight, Gracie to this website IMO.

    Good tips with lighting in particular but my iPhone 7 does not take pics nearly as good as what apple shows in their ads or promos.

      My pics are not as good either, but I highly doubt it’s the particular phone that’s the problem! Sometimes pros know what their doing!

      • Frank of Illinois says:

        oops.. that’s “know what THEY’RE doing”.

        • RM says:

          You’d be surprised how well a photo come out if you manually set focus and white balance. But I think Apple’s pictures are doctored up – no light makes grain, it is unavoidable.
