Last month I wrote about my initial experience with the iPhone 7 Plus. I found my time with the phone to have been a great enjoyment that I knew would continue the more I used it. However, I still hadn’t gained a whole lot of unique experience with its camera. I obviously tested it out on a lot of basic subjects to gather an opinion, but I never did a photo shoot with it.
A couple of weeks ago I visited Christmas Town at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia, and while on the trip I ended up taking many photos with the iPhone 7 Plus. That allowed me to finally fully understand the greatness of its camera. It wasn’t just because it provided a clear image on almost every shot, but it was also because it comes with a lot of great features as well.
The iPhone 7 Plus has a 2x optical zoom that doesn’t distort the picture like a digital zoom typically does. It has a great low light feature that makes images in the dark look insanely good. And it has multiple modes such as portrait and panoramic that create even more amazing images for sharing with friends and family.
Portrait mode really is fantastic to use. I think a lot of people would assume this feature is good for taking photos of people, which it definitely is. However, it’s a great option for taking pictures of any subject in which you would like to blur out the background to make the subject stand out further. I did this a lot during my tour through Christmas Town and have provided multiple examples below.
The camera on the iPhone 7 Plus is by far the best camera I’ve used on a phone and it inspires me to continue to take more and more photographs that I can then quickly share with friends and family through iMessage, Facebook, and Instagram.
Here are some photographs I’ve taken from my recent trip that helped convince me that the camera on the iPhone 7 Plus is amazing. I hope you enjoy and that this inspires you to capture great art with your iPhone 7 Plus camera as well.
