Sony has just announced its release of the world's first smartphone-attachable lens-style camera!
Snap it on your iPhone, prop it on its legs, or hold it in your hands, the DSC-QX10 or QX100 (coming soon) does not require any wires or very much technical know-how. If you can download an app and press the camera icon on your iPhone, you will be well on your way to snapping images pretty much right out of the box.
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).
Sometimes a parent just has too many pictures of his children. And although the dominant photo-print services deliver beautiful hardcopy books, they don’t really help people organize their images. At the end of a long day of work, diaper changing, back-and-forth on swings, and handing out snacks, sitting down at a computer to organize pictures isn’t high on most people's priority list.
So here are two companies with very different approaches to help busy parents organize and share images.
The following workflow explains iPhone apps you can use to create motion effects in images. In my previous two posts, I looked at exposure and depth of field. Within, I discussed the limitations of controlling the aperture of the iPhone and the resulting inability to easily control shutter speed without compromising exposure.
The image at the beginning of this post began as a very static freeze-frame image (shown at right). I thought it was promising but lacked the dynamic quality I wanted to inject.
The following video, which lasts less than 10 minutes, runs through the full process in real time with my own commentary, also in real time.
