Portraits of presidents and others, taken with the iPhone 8 Plus’s new lighting effects

One of the signature new features on the new iPhone 8 Plus and upcoming iPhone X is Portrait Lighting, which builds on the existing Portrait mode by using computation rather than a flash to give photos of people a professional look (and offering effects such as a simulated spotlight). Sports photographer Brad Mangin has been using an iPhone 8 Plus at the PGA Tour’s President’s Cup to take portraits of golfers and spectators; Apple shared some of his work with me. It shows off both his skill and the iPhone 8 Plus’s camera features.
