The rise in popularity of the iPhone brought with it a new breed of amateur mobile photographers. And as mobile phones became more sophisticated, we became more connected. Suddenly it was no longer about just taking photos, it was about sharing great photos. Here is a list of the current Top 10 iPhone Photography Apps that will turn your photos from amateur-looking to pro!
Instagram is probably the most popular iPhone photography app today thanks to its combination of 15-built-in filters and the ability to email photos and post them to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Shoot, edit, and post everyday happenings to share with followers and friends.
Coloursplash helps you create interesting photos by converting a photo to black and white then allowing you to select parts of the image to color. Now you can make those eyes really really pop! The idea is simple, but the effect is stunning. Coloursplash also supports Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter sharing.
The app’s developers call it “the photo booth that fits in your pocket,” and it really does replicate that experience. The app includes lots of customization, including matte vs. glossy paper, as well as sepia, black and white, or color options. Your favourite Macbook app just went mobile.
In Hipstamatic, digital photography meets analog. This app brings retro back with 3 lenses, 3 films, and 3 flash options. You can also purchase 99-cent “Hipstapaks” so you can create photos with a blast from the past. Of course, it also lets you share via email, Facebook, and Flickr.
5. LEGO Photo
Are you a LEGO lover? No? Have you ever wondered what your friends might look like if they were made of LEGO? If your answer is yes, then you’ll get a kick out of LEGO Photo.
6. Burst Mode
If you’ve ever wanted a cool and easy way to improve that free throw then this app is for you. Burst mode allows you to capture sports, skateboard tricks or any fast action where the perfect shot only lasts for a split second. You can then analyze that event frame by frame, identify the interesting regions and select/save/delete exactly what you want. Now you can know which position gets the ball into the basket.
In the olden days you can create a panoramic effect by taking a series of photos next to one another and joining them. The panorama app saves us from all that. Who would have thought that when the iPhone was first released, we would be taking panoramic photos with it?
8. FX Photo Studio
Photos in drastic need of photoshopping? Now you can do it on your iPhone! FX Photo Studio has an impressive set of tools, settings, and 200 built-in filters to tweak the colours, cropping, contrast and other aspects of your images. Now you can leave that laptop at home.
9. Tiltshift Generator
If you like the ToyCamera app, you’ll love Tiltshift Generator. It allows you to make miniature pictures and go vintage with your photos. Photos can be fashionable too.
Remember the polaroid days? Shakeit brings back the fun of shaking those films into images. It also captures the retro style of the older polaroid pictures. This app brings two-in-one fun!
Once you’ve made great photos, share! They’re useless just sitting there in the gallery. And if you liked this blog post share it too. That way, you and your photographer friends can all go pro.
