first_imgFocos gives you a side-view of your portrait mode photos so you can precisely change the depth. Angela Lang/CNET When I take pictures of friends and family on my iPhone, portrait mode is my go-to. I love the way it transforms a busy flat background into a dramatic, beautiful blur that makes my subject pop. And with the new iPhone XS, I can change the amount of blur or swap Apple lighting effects to make the photo look even better.But there are times when I crave even more creative control over my portraits. The iOS app Focos caught my attention because it allows minuscule levels of control over every aspect of a photo.My favorite feature, for instance, is the app’s ability to adjust both background and foreground bokeh like an actual lens and camera. Portrait mode photos can be shown in a side view, revealing contour map-like slices that represent depth. Sliders let me adjust which parts of the background and foreground get blurred.
