Top 5 Photography Apps for the iPhone and iPad

image

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!

Stop Motion- Animation Maker Pro: Creating Your Own Cinema

image

EDUMOTION's Stop Motion- Animation Pro is a remarkably easy-to-use application that puts the power of stop-motion filming in its users’ hands. With Stop Motion Animation Pro, no special equipment is necessary to create your very own stop-motion film. Stop- motion film is created by playing many still frames in quick succession, in which a scene has been subtly adjusted for each frame.  This creates the illusion of smooth motion when using a series of inanimate scenes.

Poetics - Turning Your iDevice Into a Poetry Canvas

image



A few months ago, I had the chance to cover the development and Kickstarter campaign for Poetics ($1.99). Poetics is the keystone to a continued artistic endeavor started by Seth Indigo Carnes, a well-known artist who makes his home in New York City. The app's origin was a series of physical installations set up in various cities around the globe. The exhibit was so popular that there was enough momentum to make Poetics available to the public.



iPhoneography Workflow: 'Winter Sunrise'

image

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. 



Snap Videos, Add Music & Share with SnapVerse

image

I must admit, when I first learned of SnapVerse (free), based on the name, I was worried that it was another anonymous texting app in the vein of SnapChat, and I had no need for that.

But I was wrong. SnapVerse is more like Vine plus GarageBand, as it lets you take videos up to 20 seconds and mash in your favorite music and sound effects. Videos can be full size or square, as with Vine.
