InstawalkSF was pretty cool. Being new to this city and not really knowing that many people, InstawalkSF was perfect. It combined my love for photography and socializing all in one event. I met a lot of people and learned a lot about iPhone photo applications that my fellow instagramers value for taking beautiful, stimulating photographs on the go.
Here is a list of iPhone photography apps that were used today by myself and other iPhoneographers:
–Mirror Camera (Mirror Cam): There is a free version of this application! It basically does live photo mirroring when you are composing your photographs and you can use this as a basis to make kaleidoscope photographs.
–Nabit: There is a free version of this app! This action sequence camera allows you to photograph an action (a skateboarder landing a jump) and you will be able to add different sequences of the action all in one photograph. Great for sports fans!
-SynthCam: This camera is best for photographing motion that occurs around a static object. For instance, you want to photograph the facade of a building at night, and record the lights of cars passing by, you would use this camera. It takes A LOT of practice to get it right, so don’t be upset if it doesn’t turn out the way you want the first time…just stick with it. You also can use several focal points
-Pro HDR: This camera is similar to the HDR on the original iPhoto app; the camera takes two photographs 2 f stops apart. Except in this case, the Pro HDR app will combine the two photographs together as one photograph creating depth in the shadows and sparkling highlights.
-Postagram: This app is pretty cool, and very simple. A photo that you take with Instagram, you can put it in Postagram and mail it to a loved one for only .99 cents! You create a personal message and the photo pops out of the postcard and they can keep it forever. Pretty sweet huh? Remember Christmas is right around the corner! (you have Doctor Popular to thank for this bright idea)
-Retro Camera: This is my personal favorite. There are several different retro/vintage cameras you can choose from that take great photographs. I sometimes use this one as “film” and then take the photo into Instagram and use the filters to “develop” the print to look the way I want it to look.
