iPhoneography Workflow: "Dawn On Sunday"


This is my workflow for the photo titled "Dawn On Sunday." My family and I recently went on vacation to New Smyrna Beach, FL. It had been cloudy and rainy the entire week. I read the weather and saw that I might have a chance to catch a sunrise on Sunday, so my son and I got up early that morning and headed to the beach where I was lucky enough to see the sun rising. The sunrise lasted for about an hour before the clouds recovered the sun and sky.

Use These Apps to Add Grunge to Your iPhoneography


This week, I wanted to introduce an app I've been using for quite some time, and that I used to create this image titled, "Tree of Grunge." Every once in a while, you come across a photo you have taken that just seems impossible to edit. Maybe, there are flaws in your photo, but you still want to turn it into something special. That's where Modern Grunge ($0.99) comes into play. This exciting app lets you turn your photos into a work of art with one touch.

I was at my dad's place for a picnic when I spotted this peculiar-looking tree. I could've taken this photo standing up, or from any angle, and it still would've looked great. But I believe it's always good to think outside the box in photography. That's why I chose this angle. Plus, I wanted to capture the clouds covering the sky, which had an eerie feeling of their own.

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.
