If you have an iPhone 13 Pro or Pro Max, you’re invited to share your best macro photography shots. We all know having an iPhone is like having a professional camera in your pocket at all times so it’s time we start capturing life! Apple is inviting people to “capture the little things in big ways” with macro photography with their new Shot on iPhone contest! Looks like it’s time to get your photographer hat on.
Apple’s Shot on iPhone Challenge
From now until February 16th, iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max users can submit their best macro photos for the chance to be featured in a gallery on Apple Newsroom, apple.com, Apple Instagram (@apple), and other official Apple accounts. They photos also may appear in digital campaigns, Apple Store locations, billboards, or in a public photo exhibition! To enter the contest all you have to do is post your photo on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #ShotoniPhone and #iPhonemacrochallenge and Apple will choose 10 winners worldwide.
Here are Apple’s tips for taking the best iPhone 13 Pro macro photography shot:
- Make sure to get close to your subject — you can get as close as 2 centimeters (about an inch) away.
- Place the primary point of focus near the center of the frame, as that’s where the sharpest focus is when shooting in macro on iPhone.
- Tap an area in the viewfinder to set a specific focus point.
- Shoot at .5x to capture an Ultra Wide field of view, or try shooting at 1x for tighter framing — iPhone will automatically switch cameras as you get close while maintaining the 1x framing.
