On the second day of 2012, I exchanged my iPhone 3GS for a brand new 64GB 4S. Since that day this little camera has boosted my photographic creativity in more than a few ways.
4/ Good for street photography; as one can pretend working on the phone while shooting
2/ "Camera +" ; this app replaces the native iPhone Camera app to make the images. Its most important feature is the fact that one can separate the focus and exposure points. On the native one they are always at the same spot and every photographer will understand that this is not always a good thing... Even though quite a few new camera replacement apps do similar things, this one has sold over 8 million copies!
3/"Filterstorm 4", Even though I've only just started using Filterstorm, it looks very promising! It's noise reduction seems like it is definitively worth the 3.99USD price of admission. Also this is one of the only apps that uses layer like photoshop.
4/ "Photogene2"; interface of this photo editing app almost feels like a native iPhone app. It has some unique features like being able to make collages. See image above.
5/ "Autostitch" : a great app to shoot and edit panoramas in a matter of seconds!
I will finish with a few iPhoneography inspirational hangouts. The first one is Instagram, a great online community for sharing images accesible on mobile devices like iPhones, iPad and since recently also on Android devices. Two blogs I read regularly are "iPhoneography.com" and "iPhoneographycentral.com"
Let's end with the following: "The iPhone is not going to replace my Pro Nikon gear anytime soon, but it sure is a good booster for creativity"!
