{how to : iphone photography & favourite apps}

picture-perfect

. . . it has been said that the best camera is the one you have with you, and with all the running around these days, and always so many lovely things to capture while traipsing about, often the only camera on hand is my iphone, which have come to rely on more and more for so many things, but especially the camera; and since joining instagram some time ago, have been having the loveliest time sharing little glimpses here and there, of everyday life, and have been asked, time and again, about the photographs in my stream -- how to split images into frames, how to get that dreamy, romantic sparkle, and so on -- and so, thought it might be fun to share a few favourite apps along the way . . .

{p.s.} for those not using iphones & apps, you can view the photographs online with: instagrid // heroku // followgram

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever . . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

. . . normally only use two or three apps other than instagram, but p prefers to play around with a broader range, and so, a few of our favourites:

  1. accu camera : to steady shots
  2. shake it : for polaroid-like effects
  3. ps express : for cropping & rotating images
  4. snapspeed : a powerful app for selective photo edits & filters
  5. instagram : for filters & sharing
  6. pro hdr : for combining two of the same images to extend the dynamic range
  7. picfx : for filters & favourite {this is glamorous} bokeh effects
  8. lens flare : for a large collection of amazing lens flare effects
  9. pic frame : to split images into separate frames & create collages
  10. toy slr : for creating focus & blur
  11. picture show : fun exposures & mirror filters
  12. dramatic black & white : for converting images to black & white and adding sharpness

iOS 5 : new & updated features

  1. press the up volume button to take a photo
  2. access the camera from the lock screen by double tapping the home screen and touching the camera icon
  3. when taking a picture, touch on the screen where you want the exposure and focus to be measured from
  4. turn on the grid from the options tab, which can help with composition and to keep your image straight
  5. use two fingers to pinch the screen to access the zoom feature
......................................................................................................

. . . and may have missed a few -- would love to know the favourite apps you're currently using?
