CREATING AND EDITING GREAT IPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY

iPhone PhotographyI Phone photography is growing in acceptance as a bona fide form of photography, and not merely a cute stepchild feature of the iPhone. Your iPhone is now the camera that’s always with you. It is no longer enough to think of it as a phone that can also take photographs, hardly! In fact, I invite you to look at it as a camera that also happens to make phone calls.Given this newly harvested mindset, and the fact that with each incarnation of the iPhone comes a better camera, I invite you to come along on a photographic journey.

Fix Your Group Photos As You Take Them

image

If you're like me, you take photo after photo of your kids or family, and they never come out just right. In one of the photos, Mom has her eyes closed. In the next one, she looks great, but Jeff looks like he swallowed a lemon. If you could only take the best from all the photos and put them on one, that would be perfect!

Well, now there's an app for that. GroupShot has just hit the App Store.

It's as easy as taking photos within the app or going to your photo library and picking the partially acceptable photos to bring into the app.

Tiles can be fun...

image

Tile-R is a simple, but very interesting iPhone App. It uses your picture to make a set of tiles. You can adjust it to make as many tiles out of your picture as you want. While experimenting with it, I came across one tile of a picture of me that struck me. I know that you can crop the same thing. I think what I like about it is that I wouldn't have normally sliced the pictures the way Tile-R did it. I think it's cool. How about you? Incidentally, it's free.



Maybe I was wrong?

There are about a zillion photo apps for the iPhone, or at least it seems that way. When it first came out, I looked at Instagram and thought it was nice, but it didn't really interest me. Since then I've seen many folks use it, including Jack Dorsey. Yesterday, I saw it mentioned as the App of the Year in iTunes. Today, I saw an article about in Wired Magazine (Jan. 2012 Issue). Maybe I was wrong and it's worth another look? In the next few days, I'm going to use it...a lot. I'll get back to you with what I find. How about you? Where do you stand on Instagram? I'm interested to know.

Color Splurge iPhone App Review

image

Everyone is looking for a great way to play with color in a photograph.  With Color Splurge; you can do just that!  This is where you can take practically any photo and turn it into black and white while adding additional colored features to enhance and personalize.  It’s a fantastic way to bring out that special photo and give it an artistic touch.

When initially signing on; a quick explanation of buttons is shown, but a little too quick to read.  A suggestion to the developer would be to slow this down, but the option to access it again is located on the top right icon pictured with a question mark.  But, the fact remains that it isn’t necessary; you can click on each one to understand their easy capabilities.
