photography: phone apps – part two
How was your Monday?
Ooooh…better question, how was your weekend? Any good stories to tell? Come on, I won’t tell a soul! Scouts honor.
I am feeling much better today thank you very much. That darn head cold hit me first thing Wednesday morning and decided it wanted to party with me all weekend. So not cool.
Anyways, instead of talking about my typical Monday
I thought I would share with you more of my favorite camera apps for the iPhone. Sound good? Sa-weet.
#1: Vintage Camera (Free)
– I love anything vintage. From flatware to jewelry to apparel to photography, it all makes me smile. I’m pretty sure my vintage passion was inspired by my mother. She is after all the vintage queen.
Anyways, this camera app is perfect for creating that nostalgia feeling (I swear if I could choose a decade to live in it would be the 60’s. Mad Men anyone?). There are a variety of different effects that come with this app, but my favorite is the Hollywood!
1965 Don Draper Martini
#2 Snapseed ($4.99)
– Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Five bucks for a camera app, you must be joking. Trust me when I say that my reaction was the same when I first saw the price. After reading a zillion reviews, I decided to download the app and give it a whirl. If you want quick Photoshop capabilities, but don’t want to buy the real software and read the manual, this is your app. It has everything from brightness filters to saturation levels to depth of field to drama effects. I’m telling you, if you like to get your edit on, this is the app for you!

#3 Photo Frame ($0.99)
– This camera app is probably one of my new favorites! Since I always end up taking wayyyy to many pictures, this app is a good way for me to sort through and present a few extras pictures I wouldn’t normally get to share. It’s easy to use and there are a variety of different frames to choose from.
And that’s a wrap!
