For photographers – professional and amateur alike – one of the most intriguing aspects of the upcoming iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X was the addition of portrait lighting, which includes a suite of new settings offering studio light, contour light and stage light modes.
As unrepentant members of #teamearly, we at Highsnobiety managed to get our hands on the in-demand phone, using it to test the new camera function, along with other modes, on the hottest sneaker on the planet currently: the Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Presto. As you can see in the gallery above, the camera is a substantial upgrade on the iPhone 7, allowing the user to adjust the lighting in post-production. As for the Presto, naturally it looks dope regardless of how it’s captured.
Peep the images above, and then read why one Highsnobiety contributor thinks the iPhone X is a disappointment.
