The latest iOS 13 Beta 2 update on iphone has brought you a very interesting photography feature, which is the shooting mode. High-Key Light Mono Lighting in the Portrait of Camera section, beside it is the slider to customize the intensity of the light effect so that the picture is more suitable for your intentions.
After borrowing and taking a test with this feature, I discovered something very nice, please share with you.
For you not to know yet, the HIGH-KEY LIGHT MONO feature can be understood simply as a variation from shooting techniques High-Key Very popular in photography, especially portrait photography. And don't forget that before, we had the ability to portray the Stage-Light Mono as a shooting technique Low-Key, Mr. cu @cuhiep has taken and showed a lot of photos about this long ago (Link).
This High-key mode Light Mono helps you get a black-and-white portrait picture taken with a white background in the Studio, without having to set up a complicated lighting system. If you want to shoot this genre with a camera, you need to do a lot of things such as learning techniques of shooting, lighting setup, if you take with non-white fonts, then it is quite elaborate about post-processing.
The device will recognize the face, then separate the background and handle the light, details .. to create a complete picture that takes only 2 seconds, possibly a portrait of a person or a group portrait. With the ability to customize the aperture and intensity of light, you will easily change those 2 quantities to match your aesthetics (I put that gold back). You can use the following camera to capture other people or use the Selfie camera.
Some photos I took with this High-Key Light Mono mode
This photo feels softer because the selected one is a little bigger, which one do you like to change the simulator aperture.
If you leave the maximum aperture of f / 1.4 and the light intensity at the highest level is 100, the image will look like this, just like the demo photos that the painters conveyed or showed to the guests.
Or selfie with the front camera is still okay, brother.
And the best thing is here …
If you notice, the Low-Key and High-Key mono shooting techniques have been used in portrait photography for a long time. These are beautiful classic portraits taken in Studio, with white or black fonts, highlighting the character and charisma of the character.
I started from the idea above, and used the apps available on my phone such as Snapseed to nest the frame and added the texture to cover the feeling of nostalgia, see how it works.
This is the Stage-Light Mono + Frame + Texture mode
