I’ve felt a bit lukewarm on the iPhone 8 Plus’ new Portrait Lighting features: warm on studio and contour light, cold on the stage light and stage light mono. Like my testing, some of these portraits taken of Presidents Cup participants look a bit… off.
But when the iPhone hits, it hits. Just look at the photos of Jason Day and Jordan Spieth — any casual viewer would think these portraits were shot with high-end lighting systems.
I did the double take.
