Is This the Future of Pro-Quality Mobile Portrait Photography? Take a Look (VIDEO)

The art of portrait photography requires a lot of skill to both capture compelling images and process them effectively. In the forward-looking video below, Adobe takes a look at how emerging technologies could enable you to do just that on a mobile device in the not-too-distant future.

Adobe’s research team has been working on using artificial intelligence and their “Sensei” machine learning platform to not only automate the process of mobile portrait photography, but enable a sophisticated editing experience without leaving your smartphone.

As you’ll see in the video, the concept is to turn ordinary portraits into great ones with software-based photo masking, perspective control, depth-of-field effects, and much more.
