NEW YORK, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Condé Nast Traveler today released its 21st annual HOT LIST AWARDS issue, which features the first-ever travel publication cover to be shot using an iPhone 7 Plus.
iPhone photography has reimagined the way we gather memories while we travel, making it easier than ever before to capture, with exceptional precision, snapshots of our trips. This comes at a great time for travel photographers – amateur and professional – as well as the millions of people who travel vicariously through images and videos on mainstream social media platforms.
The editorial team at Condé Nast Traveler, a publication celebrated for best-in-class photography, decided to task its swath of travel photographers with highlighting the iPhone camera's new feature, Portrait mode, that applies a depth-of-field effect to make the foreground subject sharp while creating a beautifully blurred background. The result, shot in St. Barts, was crafted into the cover of Condé Nast Traveler's May issue, which presents a selection of the best new hotel openings of the past year.
