How to take portraits using Live focus feature in Galaxy Note8?

Last Update Date : Apr 24. 2018

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.

 

Navigate to Camera → LIVE FOCUS → Focus → Capture → ADJUST BACKGROUND BLUR → SAVE 

 

Pictorial representation of the above settings are as follows :  

 
1. From the Apps list, tap Camera.

 

.  

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

 

.  

 
3. Focus on a particular subject by dragging the background blur adjustment bar to the left or right to adjust the blur level.

 

.  

 
4. Tap Camera icon to take a photo.

NOTE: 

● 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.
● This feature is available only in AUTO mode. 
 

You can also edit the background blur level of a photo taken with the Live focus feature in Gallery.

 
5. Select a photo taken with the Live focus feature and tap ADJUST BACKGROUND BLUR.
