As I’ve been taking photos using my iPhone in iOS 11, I’m loving the new Long Exposure effect for Live Photos. Traditionally, a long exposure shot is made when you leave the shutter open for a relatively long period of time, which does cool things like expose more of the night sky or make waterfalls look silky smooth. Over the weekend, I was at Snoqualmie Falls outside Seattle and tried making long exposure shots of the waterfall… and got better results by snapping a quick photo handheld with an iPhone than with my mirrorless camera.
I wrote up the experience, including how you can do the same thing (it’s so easy) at TidBITS: Using Long Exposure in iOS 11’s Photos App.
