Artsy black and white selfies

Want to make your self-portraits to look more like the headshots of a Hollywood star?

How about a moody black and white photo with dramatic lighting and shadow.

Open the iOS camera app and switch to the front-facing camera by hitting the circular arrow icon in the bottom right.

Swap over to Portrait mode by swiping left on your display. Portrait mode creates a depth-of-field effect by blurring the background of your photos.

Next, tap and drag across the effects options at the bottom of your viewfinder until you hit "Stage light mono".

This creates a dramatic black and white photo with a black background.

Now, tap on yourself and then lower the brightness of your image by dragging down on the yellow sun icon that appears.
