You no longer need a film degree to create cinematic works for art. Seriously. We are constantly amazed by how far technology has come, especially when it comes to that small rectangle we always have in our pockets or purses.
One of the iPhone's many unique and state-of-the-art features is its incredible camera. For years, people have been making a living from just this one feature alone. With the iPhone camera, you can create professional-level photos and videos that look great on both social media and in your portfolio. And a recent addition by Apple will help you take your videos to a whole other level.
The results are seriously cool! All you have to do is switch your iPhone camera to cinematic mode and find something you want to lock its focus on. Then create your video using different angles to make it look more interesting. When you want your subject to come into focus, all you have to do is tap them on the screen.
This feature is available on iPhone 13, iPhone 14 and iPhone XS/XR along with select iPads. If you don't have it yet, chances are you need to update your phone.
Some viewers also pointed out in the comments under this video that people who don't have this feature can use a similar one through the video editing platform Capcut. If you're looking to take your video content to the next level, try this out!
