In a world where DSLRs and EVILs and point and shoots are very common, there is no shortage of choice when it comes to selecting a good camera. However, imagine lugging around a DSLR around your neck every day. It will surely tire you down. Hence, a DSLR is only useful for taking planned pictures. But ever so often, it happens that the photographer inside you comes to life and you are treated with an amazing shot. But, without a camera, you can’t capture that shot. That is why the term ‘iPhone Photography’ is becoming increasingly popular, with a number of different lenses and apps now being introduced in order to further enhance this hobby. This is one of the picture I captured with my iPhone 4S.
The Instagram App on the iPhone is one of the most popular apps on the App Store at present, having been downloaded over a hundred million times. What does it do? It allows you to snap pictures and then apply numerous different filters on them in order to give them a distinct look. When it comes to taking pictures with your iPhone, there are a number of different concepts and ideas that you must keep in mind, and in order to pull off a good shot, you need to have more awareness than just pressing the shutter button. There are a number of apps that allow you to modify the exposure on the lens, hence allowing you to get a much more distinct picture.
In order to get creative exposure, there are a number of camera apps that you can choose from. You can learn about creative exposure on the internet, as there are a number of different websites that provide in depth detail. Similarly, keeping a check on the white balance is also very important. The white balance determines the amount of light that your lens is going to allow. If you learn how to effectively control the white balance, you could pull off some really good shots.
Similarly, one of the most amazing things about the iOS 5’s latest version on the iPhone 4S was the introduction of HDR. HDR allows you to get more contrasted colors and allows you to really revitalize your photography. Given the right amount of light, HDR photography can be done in an exceptional manner, not only enhancing your overall photography skills, but also producing some of the most stunning photographs you can imagine from a mobile camera.
Also with the launch of iOS 6 was the launch or the new camera feature was Panorama picture feature. It allows the user to take a panorama picture in a 360-degree view. All you need to do is tap the picture button and keep on moving the camera in a 360-degree to capture the whole picture.
