6 apps to take creative photos
We can all take a nice picture, but did you know your iPhone can do this?

It’s easy to take attractive photos with your iPhone thanks to all the wizardry Apple does behind the scenes, such as improving exposure, ironing out shaky shots, and nailing that focus. And it’s simple to edit photos to adjust your framing or make them a bit brighter.

That’s all expected, but with the right apps your iPhone can do things in photos that you never imagined. You can add lighting into a picture in 3D, change the focus after you’ve shot, scan negatives to turn them into regular digital photos, and more. Let’s look at some cool photo tools.

Another app that uses 3D mapping in an interesting way, Focos enables you to open your Portrait Mode photos and change what’s in focus, selecting the background instead of the subject, for example. You can also take photos inside the app with this in mind. Focos has tools for more control over what the bokeh blur and faux aperture settings look like too, giving you extra artistic freedom to get really creative.
