Thanks to Gauri Sharma for sending this in to us, we think she’s awesome for it!
We’ve seen the awesome iPhone shoot (shamless plug), and we’ve seem things like instagram (just plain shameful - kidding!), but what other cool things can you do with your iPhone in regards to taking photos?
Thanks to http://life.colerise.com/ here are some fantastic techniques:
Fancy post processing right? Not quite. A basic set of sunglasses will get you this fantastic flare followed by some minor color work.
The photos were then put through the Cross Processapp. Easy peasy.
2) Long Exposures
You’ll need three things:
The right app - I’m currently using the Slow Shutter Cam app for iPhone. Sure there are other apps, but as of right now, this one’s by far the best. Easy to use. Great design.
A steady phone - Highly recommend the Glif tripod mount. You can also try balancing your phone on something solid, but it might limit your ability to frame the photo, let alone tap the screen without moving it.
Patience - Rocks excel at this. Girlfriends being attacked by gnats do not. Though, as you’ll see, she did a top notch job standing still considering the circumstances.
It may also take a bit of pride-swallowing while your dinky phone sits atop a huge tripod.
So go out there and enjoy these techniques, if you try any, post back below in our comment section to let us know how it went!
