The photographic abilities of smart phones today are impressive; no longer does one need to carry multiple devices around for phone calls and photography. A smart phone is definitely not a camera, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your images as close to professional as possible.
Here are a few tricks:
The photographic experience does not and should not end once you’ve released the shutter button. Exposure, contrast and color balance adjustments can go a long way towards communicating your photographic vision.
Pro HDR Camera lets you enhance your phone’s high dynamic range. Smartphone cameras don't always produce the best dynamic range when shooting high-contrast subjects but HDR apps help balance things out by taking photos at different exposures and then combining them into one shot for a more even exposure.
Capture a quick panorama by just sweeping the camera with Wondershare – point, shoot, sweep in either portrait or landscape mode and then add effects.
Fast Camera for IOS is perfect for sports photography as it allows users to take up to 200 high resolution photos in a less than a minute – up to 800 if you lower the resolution. The app allows you to review your photos and select and save the pictures you want to saving, thereby not wasting memory.
Don’t be fooled, a smart phone still pales in comparison to most cameras – even point and shoot compact cameras. If you’re looking to take great photos, maybe you should hit Intertops pokies online to raise the necessary funds; photography can get extremely expensive. But, with just a few extra dollars, you can enhance your phone’s photographic abilities.
AfterFocus is a fun app that lets you play around with a shallow depth of field, blurring out parts of the image and focusing and sharpening your subject and if effects are what you’re after, then go with the free Pixlr-o-matic app which provides endless filters and additional packs to download for free if you’re not happy with your first collection.
Another great Android editor is PicSay Pro as it’s one of the easiest editing apps available. It’s particularly handy that a thumbnail preview is presented next to each of your editing options and long list of effects.
If you want to save the money of a new camera, invest in a decent app – your photo subjects will thank you for it!
