How do I take portraits using Live focus feature on Note8?

Last Update date : 2017.10.06

The Live focus feature allows the camera to capture the subject and the background separately so that you can get an out-of-focus photo with the focus on the subject. Adjust the background blur effect on the preview screen and take a photo that highlights the subject.

 

This feature is recommended that you position subjects about 1.2 m away from the camera lens.

Position the subject that you want to focus on close to the device. Also, use this feature in a place that has sufficient light.

Note: This feature is available only in AUTO mode.

 

1. From the Apps list, tap Camera

2. On the preview screen, tap LIVE FOCUS to use the Live focus feature
