One thing to remember while using Apollo is that the lighting works best only when your photos have even lighting. It doesn’t work well with photos that have deep shadows or strong highlights. The more crisp and steady your photos are, the better the lighting effects.

The developers of Apollo have stated that although the app is designed for easy use, mastering the art of getting the perfect lighting may take some time. So practice, practice, practice.
