Everyday Photography : Picture Perfect iPhone Photography with Jack Hollingsworth

http://www.adorama.com
Join Jack Hollingsworth in the new series of Picture Perfect as he shares some of his personal experience and wisdom on how to capture Everyday Photography with your iPhone.
Technical Notes from Jack:
1. By virtue of the fact that our iPhones are always with us, it’s the ultimate capture device for Everyday Photography.
• As a mobile photographer, you can blend in and not stand out
• You can swipe up from home or lock screen and be shooting anything, anywhere…in about 1 second
• The default camera will let you shoot as close as about 4” inches always from close-up objects
• The auto meter in the camera is surprisingly great for everyday sort of photos
2. In Everday photography, content trumps craft. What a pictures says is more important that how it was created.
• Technical quality is now only part of the bigger-picture conversation
• We are now talking more broadly about fun, sharing, entertainment, affordability, convenience, connection to internet, speed, weight
3. Not all Everyday subjects and objects make for perfect iPhone photos. You’ll often have to work hard at finding the intersections of Light, Exposure, Design and Subject.
• The iPhone doesn’t do great in low-light, nighttime and tricky lighting situations, don’t sell that DSLR just yet
• Were the iPhone shines in brightly light, outdoor, close-at-hand scenes and subjects
4. We all see the world differently. One’s man’s treasure is another man’s trash.
• Because of our unique vision and style, listen carefully to your own still voice.
• Humbly accept criticism of your work but don’t let that deter you from developing your own voice and vision.
• Learn to shoot a variety of shots-one for the general masses and another couple for yourself
5. The secret sauce to creating inspiring Everyday photography is decimated practice and tireless experimentation 
• The average smartphone users take approximately 5 photos per day, some more, some less, some not at all
• You are not going to significantly improve your craft and art but only shooting these minimum
• Go out for a photo walk, once a week and shoot your heart out. 
• Try a 365 project with your iPhone camera, 1 photo per day for a full year
6. Keep your IOS software updates
• Tap Settings--General--Software Update
7. The most important piece of gear in my Mobile Camera Bag, besides my iPhone, is my portable charger. No power. No photos
• Chargers are of no use unless you have reliable lightning cables. I bring 3-4 everywhere I go. 
8. Keep your Geo-tagging on, you can toggle it on or off depending on your need for privacy.
• Enable or disable privacy settings here -Settings--General--Reset--Reset Location&Privacy 
• You can also review the location-accessing rights of any apps by going here-Settings--Privacy--Location Services
9. I primarily use my retina flash when I able to diffuse its source
• The iPhone LED flash is actually quite a useful tool if you know how to use properly
• I like putting some natural diffuser material in front of the flash to make it less harsh
• I am also known to use a second iPhone, in torch mode "Control center" to act as a secondary, “off-camera” light-source
10. Did you know that the iPhone has a User Manual?
• It’s available online or via iBooks
• The online version can be found here: http://help.apple.com/iphone/9/
• It’s the perfect place to begin your iPhone photography journey and get familiar with all the terms and features and functions.

iPad Photography App: Vintage Scene: Adorama Photography TV

Posted in Photography, Camera, Adorama, Adorama TV, iPad App by adoramatv on September 8th, 2010

Adorama Photography TV presents Vintage Scene for the iPad.

This week Mark Wallace discovered a great iPad application that is called Vintage Scene. This app is the best special effects software for photography enthusiasts, turning a new or recent photo into an old photo, one that looks like it was taken many years ago.

This unique algorithm automatically combines several classic effects: sepia tone, grain, darkened edges, distressed paper, along with the look of fade that with time has left behind an image with only bright blacks and darkening whites. Vintage Scene is easy to use but gives the user control to change each component for a unique look on each photo.
