‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Using the iPhone Portrait Mode and SnapSeed Portrait Editor

It’s great to be back with another How I Did It!™ video tutorial for TheAppWhisperer community! This video explores the 1-2 knockout combination of the iPhone’s Portrait Mode with SnapSeed’s Portrait editor tool.

This video focuses on editing images taken with the dual lens iPhones. In this case the portraits were made with the iPhone XS Max, but any of the dual lens iPhones from the 7 Plus to the X can be used. In fact, you can use SnapSeed’s Portrait editor on any portrait, not just those taken with dual lens cameras. In this video, editing occurs in both the iPhone photo editor, and in SnapSeed’s Portrait Editing tool.

Photography has always been synonymous with fun and magic. As a kid, it was fun to compose, fun to capture, magic to develop and process, and fun to share. It was fun to seek out photos and to engage people, and magic to travel to new lands or find the unusual in familiar places. It was magic to convey an emotion or make a point and touch others through visual imagery that I created. As an adult, photography continues to be more fun and magical than I ever dreamed! Despite changes in technology that have occurred during my lifetime, the esthetic of photography remains much the same. The creative mind of the photographer is still the most important element in a great photo. The camera doesn’t create a photograph any more than a hammer designs a building; it’s merely a tool that allows us to create our vision. Today, my camera bag holds two mirrorless cameras, an infrared camera, a point-and-shoot, and the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone X. Of these tools, I credit my use of iPhones since 2010 with providing more opportunities to practice the esthetics of photography, making me a better photographer regardless of the camera I'm using. And photography has never been more fun and magical! Today, my business consists of teaching photography face-to-face and online, and leading tours for mobile and traditional photographers to photogenic locations around the world. • Visit my website (http://www.RadDrewPhotography.com). • Subscribe to my YouTube Channel (http://bit.ly/2inDez8_RadYouTube). • Watch for my regular mobile photography column in Luminous Landscape (https://luminous-landscape.com). • Subscribe to RadDrewPhotography Newsletter (http://bit.ly/1Z0prlX_RadDrewPhotographyNewsletter) for news, and photography tips and tricks.
