TIKTOK is a compilation of great iPhone camera tips, providing many new and creative ways to take photos of your device.
In particular, three tricks have grown in popularity on the platform in recent months – thanks in part to how easy they are to try.
You can get amazing vertical photo effects by using the iPhone camera’s panorama mode – a mode that captures more scenes by combining multiple photos.
The result is an enlarged space above your subject that can show anything in the sky, such as a starry night sky or storm clouds.
TikTok photography technician @jdthecameraguy showed the trick in one videotapes shared with his two million followers last year.
To try it out for yourself, open the camera app and switch to Panorama mode by swiping left on your screen.
If you have an iPhone 11 or later, switch to the wide-angle lens by tapping the “0.5x” button under the shutter (the effect will still work on older iPhones, but not quite).
Next, flip your camera to the side 90 degrees so that the horizon line draws a vertical line down your screen.

Press the shutter button and point to the sky, making sure to move the phone continuously while taking the photo.
Hold the arrow on the line while scrolling up to make sure the panorama aligns the photos correctly – otherwise it will look jagged.
When you are taking a photo, drag the panorama to the sky as far as you want to see it in your photo and then press the shutter button again to stop.
You will have a fisheye effect photo that expands into the sky for a great effect.
Artistic black and white selfies
Everyone knows how to take a selfie, but few are able to do so using this funky effect.
In a separate post on TikTok, @jdthecameraguy showed his followers how to make their selfies look more like a Hollywood star’s frontal shot.
The result is a moody black and white photo with dramatic lights and shadows.
Open the iOS camera app and switch to the front-facing camera by tapping the circular arrow icon in the bottom right.
Switch to Portrait mode by swiping left on your screen. Portrait mode creates a depth of field effect by blurring the background of your photo.
Next, tap and drag through the effect options at the bottom of your viewfinder until you tap “Monochrome spotlight”.
This creates an impressive black and white photo with a black background.
Now tap yourself and then reduce the brightness of your image by dragging down the yellow sun icon that appears.
Selfies taken in this mode will give the desired effect. Your photos look better if you wear dark clothes.
‘Sunrise’ video effect
Another popular TikTok trick that came out last year also uses the iPhone camera app’s brightness slider.
This tool, which allows you to expand the highlights or shadows of an image, is visible when you press to focus before taking a photo or recording a video.
TikToker @willkyaw1 has shown a creative way of using sliders to give your videos a curious effect.
When used correctly, your video starts out in the dark and then gradually brightens as if an invisible chronological sunrise was playing out over the horizon.
To try it out for yourself, open your iPhone’s camera app and swipe right on your screen to switch to video mode.
Before recording a video, tap to focus on your subject, then tap the yellow sun icon that appears and drag the brightness slider all the way down.
After you hit the record, gradually pull the slider up again. Stop recording when you’ve reached any brightness you’re happy with.
Voila, now you have a cool video worthy of any travel Instagram account.
