Improving Photography Through Apps

Yes you can spend $1000 or more just for the camera body of a big name camera. But with the price of apps so cheap, you may as well use your iPhone to learn to take better pictures. At a session at PETE&C last week I picked up several new app ideas for this purpose.

  1. Olloclip to do macro, fisheye and wide ange, 3 in 1 lens that clips to the corner of your iPhone for about $59
  2. Word photo app to put words on photo $2.99
  3. Use Photo Wizard for editing photos for FREE.
  4. Instagram to  – turn your photos into great projects from mugs to canvas prints.
  5. Type drawing app to put words on photo $1.99
  6. Percolator app to landscape work bubbles.  $1.99
  7. Photo wizard to do special effects. FREE
  8. PIP camera – Take a photo inside an object, be creative for FREE.
  9. Cinemagram – make short videos for FREE.
