<ol><li> 1. Getting Started Ive been working on an iPhone 5 Version 7.0.3 for this project In the past I have used both traditional film and digital cameras , but it wasnt until I got an iPhone with a built in camera that I began to get excited about taking photos Now Im pretty much an obsessive compulsive photographer, and shoot nearly every day. Most of my favourites I post to Facebook or Flickr, but thats about as far as I take my work. </li><li> 2. On camera effects and editing Before taking a shot, you can select the following options: 1. LIGHTING: From the top left of the screen, you can turn the flash to ON, OFF or AUTO. Flash is useless on objects more than a metre or so away but comes in handy to fill-in shadowy areas. 2. HDR: High Dynamic Range captures a greater vibrancy between lightest and darkest areas of an image. It will pick up more texture, for example, in a sky or washed out area. </li><li> 3. Regular vs HDR skies </li><li> 4. 3. Rotate camera lens front-to-rear: Shoot what isin front of you or take a selfie by pressing the camera image at top right. Note that in the second option, youre seeing a mirror image and on the actual photo rights and lefts will be reversed </li><li> 5. 4. Filters: Press the 3 interlocking circles icon at the bottom right to bring up 9 filters you can choose from. Select one of these before or after you shoot.To the right is a screen shot of what the photo viewfinder sees when you choose the filter button before shooting Filters cannot be applied to panoramas or videos </li><li> 6. Fade filter option </li><li> 7. Chromefilter optionMore on this later </li><li> 8. 5. Scroll along the bottom of your screen viewer to set the camera toVIDEO, PHOTO, SQUARE and PANO The PANORAMIC option allows for a 180 view. Hold the camera in the upright (portrait) orientation, and turn your body all the way to your left. Press the photo button and a horizontal line and will appear mid-screen. Pan slowly and steadily to your right, without stopping, aiming to keep the arrow on the horizontal line. Release your finger when done.Any photo can be cropped square or rectangular when editing afterward. </li><li> 9. Panoramic ViewPanorama shots tend to have a flattening and curving effect on scenery so shooting a smaller range, less than 180 degrees, often gives a better result. </li><li> 10. Other features There is also a burst shooting feature that allows multiple photos to be taken in rapid succession simply by keeping the shutter depressed. This is excellent for photographing sports, pets and other moving subjects. When photographing inPHOTO or SQUARE mode, zoom in by touching two fingers to the screen and stretching them apart. Note that zooming will make images less sharp and more pixelated. </li><li> 11. Editing photos on the iPhone </li><li> 12.
