Apple posts video with behind-the-scenes look at Portrait Lighting

Apple has shared a new video on its YouTube channel providing a brief behind-the-scenes look at how the company developed the Portrait Lighting feature for the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus, ranging from studying classic portraiture, bringing in top artists and photographers, and incorporating established lighting principles to build the machine learning algorithms used for the new photography feature.

Apple’s Portrait Lighting feature, introduced last fall with the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus and iOS 11, expands the “Portrait Mode” that came to the iPhone 7 Plus in 2016 by adding the ability to apply dynamic lighting effects to portrait photos that simulate the placement of actual professional light sources by using advanced machine learning algorithms.
