Apple has already added a dual-lens camera to its iPhone 7 Plus at the end of 2016, but not many developers, except Apple, have harnessed the depth data provided by "portrait" mode photos. However, a relatively new app will change this by using this depth information to add realistic-looking light sources to your photos.
Created by Indice Ltd and published on the iOS App Store on May 18, 2018. "Apollo: Immersive Lighting" works with photos taken in portrait orientation on the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. It also works with the portrait lighting modes. However, the lighting effects Apple uses are removed before Apollo works spells; You can not add Apollo effects in addition to the lighting effects of Apple
With this app you can add 20 different light sources to each picture the depth information for reading. For editing, there are two global settings that you can adjust for the entire photo (shadow and effect area), as well as four parameters that you can calibrate for each light source (color, distance, brightness, and spread).
Apollo is the first app that uses the depth data of your photos in portrait format to calculate photorealistic lighting. Using a proprietary graphics processing algorithm, Apollo can illuminate a portrait scene in real time. Upload a photo from your gallery and add lights. Apollo will realistically calculate the effect of the distance, color, intensity, etc. of the light.
Apollo costs $ 1.99, but if you're a photo enthusiast looking to burst your subject with realistic lighting effects, create a different mood on the image or add halos and accentuate them silhouettes. This is an excellent investment.

- A crisp and consistent photograph gives crisp, individualized looks
- Practice makes perfect! Although Apollo is simple, mastery of its concepts may take some time.
