How to use Focus or Portrait mode in Instagram Stories

Instagram's "Focus" function allows you to take photos or record videos in Stories with depth effect that resembles images captured by a professional camera. The result is also very similar to photos captured by Portrait Mode, iPhone. The feature keeps focus only on the face that is in the foreground, leaving the background of the image blurred. It is worth mentioning that the new feature works on both selfies and pictures taken with the rear camera and is being released gradually for all users. Check out the following tutorial on how to take photos with Focus on Instagram Stories.
