Set Camera Focus and Exposure on iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Rushell, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. Today, we're going to teach you how to set auto focus and auto exposure on the iPhone 6.
To get started, give a single press to the Home button.
Then swipe across the screen to enter a Touch ID or Passcode.
Alternatively, we can use a thumb or finger to press and hold on the Home button. This will unlock the phone and take us to the home screen.
From the home screen give a quick tap to the "Camera" icon to open the camera. Now, what we are going to explain is very basic photography, but it can significantly impact the photos we take.
Next, we are going to be using a very ordinary, unused shoe brush to take some photos.
First, we'll move the shoe brush behind the camera.
Let's turn the brush sideways a little, and then tap on the screen near the white area of the brush.
Now, the part part of the image has gone completely white and basically out of focus.
This sets the auto focus and auto exposure.
Now, let's tap on the back at the top where the background is.
This will darken up that shoe brush image. If we're interested in a picture of a shoe brush, this one is not nearly as good as the picture would if we tapped back to focus on the brush.
As we can see now, the whole brush is the focus, and we have a much better image.
We can use that and move the brush around. Each time we make significant changes to the frame of the camera, the iPhone is going to change the exposure.
Therefore, we will need to tap again somewhere on the brush to get that image where we want it to be.
Each time we move, it is changing the exposure.
To change the brightness of a particular area, just press and hold down on the screen.
A little sun icon will appear on the side of small square that outlines the area where we pressed.
Now, press an hold where that sun icon is and move up to increase the brightness.
If we move down, the picture will get darker. The lower the sun is, the darker the picture, and the higher the sun is, the brighter the picture. This is an interesting thing that can help guide us into taking more and better pictures with the iPhone 6 or any other camera or that matter.
When we're done playing around with our photos, we can give a single press to the Home button to go back to the home screen. From there, we can begin using the phone to do whatever it is we were doing before.
This concludes our tutorial on how to set the auto focus and auto exposure on the iPhone 6 when taking photos.
