Sure, you know how to take photos with your iPhone. But chances are you've overlooked some of its great features that can help you capture more fun and creative snaps.

So, tech giant Apple released a series of "How to Shoot" videos on their website to help you take full advantage of the camera's snapping capabilities. They provide the basics on taking backlit subjects, sunset silhouettes, and even low-light shots without the flash turned on.

Here, then, are step-by-step instructions that you should keep in mind so you can shoot incredible photos every time you press the shutter button.
