STEPHEN SCOURFIELD shows you how to make magic with iPhone Live mode
Lots of people with iPhones that have the Live photos function will see it mostly as a nuisance.
You take that terrific picture, then notice the yellow Live note that shows it’s actually a three second video, and not a still shot.
