You’ve probably seen photos where a person appears more than once in the same shot. Professionals do that by stitching multiple images using photo editing software, but you can do that just with your iPhone’s default camera app.
Activate the panorama mode in the Camera app, and have a friend shoot the panorama from where you’re standing. The key to achieving this effect is for you to move quicker than the iPhone in the opposite direction of motion, as shown in the GIF below:
The Panorama mode is generally used to capture the surroundings in a circular fashion, centered around you, but another creative way to use this mode is to just enable it while you’re driving. Ensure that you’re holding the iPhone firmly, maintaining a steady position relative to the car, and ask a friend to drive it through an interesting neighbourhood to capture drive-by panoramas.
The iPhone doesn’t have optical zoom. You can digitally zoom in by pinching in the Camera app, but the photo quality from this mode isn’t good. If you want to click zoomed-in photos of an object at a large distance, you can use a binocular as a zoom lens. Just place one of the sides of the binocular on the iPhone’s camera lens at the back, and you should be able to click zoomed-in photos without compromising on quality.
The iPhone, as well as other cameras, can only focus up to a certain minimum distance, and if you go even closer to the subject, the photo will be blurred. Professional photographers use a Macro lens to reduce this minimum distance, and let them click photos of tiny subjects like insects. But you can click similar photos from your iPhone without spending a lot of money on expensive macro lenses.
Just place a small drop of water on your iPhone’s lens, and you’ll now be able to go extremely close to small subjects like insects, and click photos that you wouldn’t have been able to earlier.
