Toronto. Studios have been disappearing rapidly these days. One possible cause is the ubiquitous smartphone. The example at left was shot with the iPhone XR’s 12 megapixel camera which has a lens equivalent to a 35mm lens but with a much wider depth of field.
Can’t see the wide depth of field? That is because internal software allows both HDR and depth control so the shot looks like one taken with a regular camera using a 35mm lens set to something like f/2!
Apple is using shots like this portrait by travel photographer Austin Mann to highlight the potential of its newest smartphones. Read this article titled, “Apple Highlights Photos Shot on iPhone XR” on the MacRumors website.
