Tip of the Day: How to Produce Great Outdoor Photos With Your iPhone


Your iPhone is a great tool to catalog your outdoor explorations. For an example, check out the image of Longs Peak that I took with my iPhone in Rocky Mountain National Park. Until I acquired a Nikon camera a few weeks ago, I relied solely on my iPhone for outdoor photography. I purchased the 32GB model of the 5s for the extra photo storage. I am no professional photographer, but I travel for work or play about once a month so you can imagine how many photos I have amassed.

Here is some insight into the best apps and tools to use for your adventures:

iPhoneography Workflow: 'Winter Sunrise'


Welcome to my most recent iPhoneography workflow in which I'll show you how I creates this photo in only three steps and what apps I used.

Since winter will be here before we know it, I thought this would be a nice photo workflow to share this week. I always suggest getting up early and being on location approximately 15–20 minutes before the sun rises. This is when the magical colors of the earth awake, and they don't stay long, so be ready. 

iPhoneography Workflow for Sunsets: Catching the Rays


Welcome to my latest iphoneography workflow "Catching the Rays" which will show you some tricks and tips I used to capture and create this photo of the sunset.

I started off taking one of my sons to our favorite local lake to catch the sunset. I usually try to get to my destination about 15 minutes before the sun sets. This gives me time to catch the shifting in colors that sunsets produce. I have found that you get the best results just before or after the sun rises or sets.  I usually end up adding my sun to the photo during processing. This is what I did here as well. The setting sun in this photo was very nice thanks to the cloud cover and reflections. 

iPhoneography Workflow: Step-by-Step Photo Editing


Welcome to my latest workflow, which will cover step-by-step photo editing with my photo "Don't Forget about Me." This week I used Pro Camera ($4.99) instead of my usual shooting app, Camera+ ($1.99).

Top 7 iPhoneography Apps for Capturing Awesome Nature Shots


Welcome to my iPhoneography workflow. Here, I'll share the images I create with my iPhone and the hand-picked, trial-and-error methods I use to capture and edit them with.

Hello everyone! Today, I will show you how I photographed this image with my iPhone, and what apps I used to complete this wonderful shot titled, "Warmth."

Use These Photography Apps to Capture Awesome Sunrise Shots on Your iPhone


Welcome to my iPhoneography workflow. Here, I'll share the images I create with my iPhone and the hand-picked, trial-and-error methods I use to capture and edit them with.

This image I took recently, titled "Sunday Serenity," is a very easy-to-approach iPhoneography photo. I want to share a few quick tips first off. Using your iPhone to take professional-looking photos involves a little manipulation. Trying to get those far-away landscape shots with your iDevice can be difficult compared to using a DSLR camera.

In this photo, the sun was about to come up, which is THE BEST time to catch sunrises (for sunsets, the best time is right after the sun goes down). It all relates to lighting, and colors are more intense before or after the sun makes an appearance.

Want to Learn to Take Pictures Like This with Your iPhone? Here's How


Welcome to my iPhoneography workflow for iPhone Life magazine. I'm going to walk you through the steps I took to create this photo titled, "Brotherly Love."

I should tell you off the bat, I'm a huge fan of  Camera+ ($1.99). I take all of my photos with this app and usually run them through an editing process before I move to other editing apps. I would also like to add that I've only been an iPhoneographer for about a year now. I've been very serious ever since. Silhouettes are one of my favorite types of photos, and I often use them while catching a sunset with my kids.

The Absolute Best Camera App is Currently on Sale


Camera+ is by far the best photography app I have found. If you want your iPhone to act like a professional camera, this is the app for you... AND it is currently on sale for $.99 it has sold for as much as $2.99 since it's release.

With it you can:

David Pogue selects the best camera apps


There are some 6,500 camera apps, and a recent column by David Pogue points you to the best. These apps, most of which are free or low cost, can transform the iPhone's mediocre camera into a useful tool. He covers apps that you simply use in place of the iPhone's Camera app and give you much better quality. For example, the many features of Camera+ ($1.99) include image stabilization.
