Galaxy Note8: How do I take portraits using Live focus feature?

Last Update Date : Apr 11. 2018

STEP 1. From the Apps list, tap Camera.

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.
