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

image

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.



How To Create Tunnel Vision Photographs Using Only a Straw and Your iPhone

The iPhoneography Tip of the Week series features tips, tricks, and tutorials to help you take better pictures with your iPhone.

I received a Facebook message from a friend a short time ago challenging me to describe the method she used to create an image of a rose surrounded by a silky-pink tunnel. I found out she used a straw to create the beautiful image, and I decided I would experiment with the trick, and see what I could create.

Here is what you will need to try it yourself:

1. Scissors;

2. A straw (your choice of color);

3. The subject;

4. Your iPhone!



iPhoneography Tip of the Week: How to Achieve the Rangefinder Look with Your iPhone

The iPhoneography Tip of the Week series features tips, tricks, and tutorials to help you take better pictures with your iPhone.

Rangefinders are super hot right now. Photographers looking for a dynamic view while shooting street photography love using rangefinders as their primary platform. The two-dimensional quality, straight-forward shooting is extremely unique. For me, photographing with a rangefinder is far more engaging than using my DSLR. Don't get me wrong, I love shooting with my 5D Mark III, but seeing the focus rectangle glow inside the viewfinder of my Canon QL17 is a truly wonderful experience. With today's digital offerings, you can't go wrong with a Leica or Fuji X100 - the overlays within the viewfinder are brilliant.

Taking great shots on your iPhone just got easier with two great freebies recently added to the App Store. Remote Shutter allows you to view/take remote shots through any WiFi or Bluetooth paired set of iOS devices, and Gradients will let you apply your own custom filters to create photographic art!

1. Remote Shutter (Free)

Remote Shutter is a technology-binding application that greatly extends the coolness of owning multiple iOS devices. It allows you to remotely control the shutter/camera of an iOS device through a wireless network. You can see the live camera view, take pictures, and also configure the countdown timer to take a delayed shot of up to 30 seconds.



4 Tips for Taking Better iPhone Pictures Of Your Kids

Let's admit it — kids are tough to photograph with your iPhone. That is, unless they're sitting still and posing for you during the "magic hour" of light professional photographers often talk about. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your iPhone pictures. 

1. Take Video, Convert to Screenshots



Tips for Better Videos

Twitter recently bought Vine, an app used to create videos up to six seconds long. I'm not sure how many videos really are needed of that length. If you like it that's great. The videos also loop and can be used on Twitter, of course.

Regardless of camera or the app you use when making videos, here are five basic video making tips that you might find helpful.



RØDE iXY Stereo Microphone at CES!

image

Over in the Las Vegas Hotel (right next to North Hall), the CES iLounge Pavilion continues full of great accessory gear for the intrepid wanderer! I'll be posting up a full review on the iXY from RØDE after the show, but the high points include: stereo dynamic mic input wrapped in a superb hardware package, and with a recording/sampling ability and impressive range of editing and sharing options. Serious journalism types, podcasters, and musicians that want to capture high-quality audio with nothing more than iPhone (and the iXY) should give this product a serious look!



Cinema-trix App Review

Cinema Trix is a fun app which allows you to add filters and other effects to your device’s camera while you’re shooting video or still images.  Unlike many other apps, you can use this one to look through your camera at the world as you want it to be.  The augmented reality features allows you to feel like you’re in the matrix or some other exciting world.  It’s also great for making fun and interesting videos which are altered in a wide range of ways. 



Save, and share, those childhood memories with ArtKive

image
My youngest daughter was nicknamed 'The Factory' at nursery school, due to the sheer volume of artwork she turned out. Sure, we are proud parents, but if I kept everything, I'd be labeled a hoarder. As a parent, I'm guilty of secretly depositing those works of art in the recycle bin. But you simply can't preserve everything your kids create, in school, camp, or at home.

I've been a fan of the Olloclip since it came out, so I was glad to see the iPhone 5 version was coming. In fact, I've been able to play with a prerelease version for a few weeks, and you can get one now that it was just announced today.
