How to Master "Silhouettes" with Your iPhone

image

Hello friends and fellow iphoneographers. In this post I will be teaching you tips and tricks for capturing fantastic silhouette shots. For starters, you can use many different subjects for your silhouette shots. This includes people, birds, trees, or any object that would form a great silhouette. You always want to make sure your subject is in front of the lighting you choose to use. I find the best silhouettes are captured using natural light in the background. Sunrises and sunsets are my personal favorite backgrounds for capturing fantastic silhouette shots. I believe you can never go wrong using one of these as your backdrop. 



Stabilize Shaky Vids with Emulsio

Camera phone videos, particularly of outside activities, are often rolling and jerky enough to make one practically lose their lunch when viewing them, which is why a camera tripod is a great tool. You can't lug one everywhere however, and it's usually impractical for your iPhone. Apple has added software image stabilization into the iPhone, but there are limits to its effectiveness. You can save yourself and your loved ones some replay discomfort by adding a more robust video stabilizer app to your iPhone library. There are online tools available on sites like YouTube, but for a finer level of control, you might try Emulsio (free), which was just updated on February 24.

As people across the world slept on Wednesday night, Microsoft subtly shifted the branding associated with SkyDrive, the company's Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive competitor. The now rebranded OneDrive, offers a basic storage capability across devices. The initial allocation is an interesting 7GB. To get you started, mobile users who choose to backup their photos to OneDrive will be rewarded with an additional 3GB, bringing the storage capacity for new users to 10GB. Like Dropbox before it, OneDrive now encourages its adherents to send out referrals. Each referral that takes up the offer returns 500MB in incremental storage, maxing at 5GB of extra free storage.

iPhoneography Workflow: "Dawn On Sunday"

image

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.

Now Hear This... Better, using the Zoom iQ5 microphone!

Apple has improved the camera in their iPhone with each iteration, but the microphone hadn't changed much. Sure, there's noise cancelation, but the position of the microphone is problematic, and it certainly doesn't pick up stereo audio.

New iOS App Simultaneously Scans, Crops Multiple Photos

New iOS App Simultaneously Scans, Crops Multiple Photos

Hong Kong, Dec 29, 2013 – The iOS app Pic Scanner offers an incredibly fast and easy way to digitize old photographs: Scan three or four photos at a time with your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and the app automatically and accurately detects, crops and saves them as individual photos.

You can edit photos, apply filters, add captions, and create albums with just a few taps. Scanning preserves photos for posterity, and also makes them portable and sharable. Photos scanned with Pic Scanner can be shared via Facebook, Google+, Twitter and email, and archived in iCloud or Dropbox.

Pic Scanner can also scan photos pasted in albums or mounted in frames. Conventional scanners cannot do this.
