I use my iDevice cameras all the time, literally on a daily basis, and I know I'm not alone. You can probably relate when I say that since I usually have my iPhone with me, that I find myself taking more pictures than ever, and good quality photos too! One of the first rules of photography if you want to get priceless shots, is to always have a camera with you. With the rise of the camera-enabled smartphone, virtually everyone seems to have an iPhone camera at the ready these days. To support us in our photography aspirations there are no shortage of excellent camera apps in the App Store, and over the years I've tried many of the best of them. Out of a crowded field, I've distilled a list of my top 5 iPhone camera apps, ones that I've put to continual use, and they’ve consistently performed well. Read on, some of my top picks may surprise you!



Texturize Your iPhoneography with the Camera Awesome App

Welcome to today's iPhoneography workflow titled "Textured Landscape." I will guide you through the steps I have taken to turn a landscape photo into textured artwork. 

I took this shot while on a walk with my family. It's a simple landscape that just caught my eye. I used Camera+ ($1.99) to capture the photo and used the Auto Focus feature. I did this because I wanted to get a clear shot of the whole scene, not focus on just one area. I also used this app for starting my editing process. After taking the shot, I used the Clarity option at 100 percent. Next, I went to the Vibrant feature and used put it to 100 percent also. Then, I saved to Camera Roll.

Don’t get me wrong, iPhone Life-ers. I love me some Instagram (my handle is adamcharvey. Follow me!), but sometimes I want to edit and create instead of color correct and experiment with filters. I feel like I can take my superawesome photo skills to the next level and start getting truly creative with my stuff. So, the other day I set out to find some cool photo editing apps.
