How to take eye-catching flower photos with iPhone 12 Pro models

the versatile Pro camera systems on the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max push the boundaries of innovation with powerful new computing photography features. These systems feature an Ultra-wide camera with a wide 120-degree field of view, an even greater focal length on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, a telephoto camera perfect for portrait frames, and a brand new wide camera with a ƒ/1.6 aperture. The optical image stabilization (OIS) system in the wide camera allows you to capture exceptional photos and stable videos in Night Mode by adjusting 5,000 Micro-settings per second.

A14, iPhone 12 Pro models are also 6 times faster by leveraging the power of The Bionic chip in the dim light auto focus, night mode, that allows you to take portrait pictures LiDAR Scanner, and extremely natural-looking photos in any environment for all cameras for better photos using machine learning technology with deep fusion, the photo's white balance, contrast, texture and saturation values with a Smart Set 3 intelligent HDR feature. Moreover, users can now experience the Apple ProRAW. This feature is Apple's multiframe image processing and computational photography technologies by combining the versatility of the RAW format directly from iPhone or other professional photo editing applications in color, detail and allows you to exert complete creative control over the dynamic of December.

We share Underwood's words below explaining how she took glamorous floral photos at home by incorporating the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max into her professional workflow.


There are a few major editing steps that I apply to 99 percent of the photos I take. I do all this in the Photos app. These arrangements are based on personal preferences. I suggest you experiment to find your own specific editing steps. For example, I focus on crop or aspect ratio, exposure, saturation, and temperature.

To access these tools in the editing workflow in the Photos app, tap a photo and view the photo in full screen. Then tap the button icon at the bottom and scroll through the various options.
* Crop the photo as necessary so that the flowers fill the entire frame and look as “accented” as possible.
* Small increases in exposure illuminate the frame and allow the arrangement to stand out, especially on mobile device screens.
* In flower arrangements and other colorful still life photos, increasing saturation by a small amount (less than 10) helps colors become even more stressed and stand out.
* Finally, adjust the temperature of the photo. This usually means cooling the image a little to create an elegant and calming effect, and still makes the photo very close to reality.

All fairly simple, these edits are extremely meaningful to get a great final image, ready to be shared and liked by others. For more information about how to access and use each tool, visit the “edit photos and videos on iPhone” page.


introducing the Apple ProRAW feature on the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max is a very exciting innovation for me. This feature certainly offers the maximum amount of information about the image, making it possible to apply more detailed edits. So now you can shoot and export RAW images with an iPhone. This, in turn, opens up new creative possibilities. I can now easily include photos I took with my DSLR, as well as photos I took with my iPhone in my normal professional post-production workflow. Just enable the Apple ProRAW feature on your iPhone 12 to start using it.

To get the most out of Apple Proraw, I edit the photo in Adobe Lightroom. In Lightroom, I usually make edits such as cropping or aspect ratio, exposure, saturation, and temperature, which I can also do in the Photos app. But I prefer to have the opportunity to improve certain flowers by using the Radial Filter tool, especially in flower still lifes. This tool allows me to make certain adjustments in a small area of my choice. As you can see in the photo below, you can increase the exposure of a single flower attached to the arrangement. This is difficult to capture with any camera, but it is a detail that can be seen with the naked eye.

to start using Apple Proraw on iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max, select Settings > Camera > Formats and enable this feature.
