Learn iPhone Photo Editing Apps. But why would Apple do that?

Learn iPhone Photo Editing Apps

Well, it actually makes sense. Your iPhone camera has to work well in different light, with different colors and for different subjects. And it doesn’t really know what kind of photo you’re trying to create. Since it has to work well in such different conditions, it will give you an average photo that’s most likely to work for many different purposes.

And that works OK. So let me show you exactly what I mean… The following photo was taken on an early spring day in Yellowstone National Park. But that’s not the kind of feeling you get from this photo. This photo is much closer to how the place felt in real life. So the point I’m trying to make is that… Your Photos Will Never Look Perfect Directly From The Camera That’s because the iPhone (just like any other camera) is set up to take neutral looking photos, so don’t expect breathtaking results directly from the camera.

With so many apps available, it can be difficult to know where to start. While the native iPhone camera app has some great features, sometimes you need a more powerful camera with DSLR-like manual settings such as shutter speed, ISO and white balance. This is when you’ll need to download a third-party camera app from the App Store. In this article, you’ll discover the five best iPhone camera apps that will give you all the features you need in any shooting situation. You may already be familiar with the VSCO app (pronounced “Visco”) as it’s well known for its photo editing features and beautiful film-like filters. When taking photos in VSCO, you can have manual control of focus, exposure, white balance, and even ISO and shutter speed.

To get to the camera in VSCO, simply open the app and swipe down with your finger. But these are only some of the customizable options. Drag the slider to adjust the exposure (brightness) of your image. 2. iPhone Street Photography: How To Tell Compelling Stories. Street photography is one of the most fascinating and powerful forms of storytelling.

iPhone Street Photography: How To Tell Compelling Stories

Its power comes through capturing a combination of elements such as a person, weather, mood and lighting that can never be replicated again. In this tutorial you’ll discover eight ways to tell compelling and profound stories though your iPhone street photography. 1. Be Discreet Try to go unnoticed as much as possible when shooting street photography. Being discreet allows you to capture people being their natural selves within a city environment. Luckily, the small size of the iPhone makes it easy to be stealthy while attempting to take a photo.

One technique is to photograph your subjects from behind so that they don’t see you. Rather than standing in the middle of the street taking photos, hide away in the shadows or sit down on a bench. 15 Free Satellite Imagery Data Sources - GIS Geography.

But wait there’s more Not only can you can download some of the latest, greatest satellite imagery – but it’s all at NO CHARGE. And all you need to know is where to find them. (That’s where we come in) If you want free satellite data, there’s no better way to do it then to follow this incredibly useful guide. 1 USGS Earth Explorer – Unlock the Power of Landsat and More Whether you live in the United States, in the Arctic circle or an obscure country like Transnistria, we can all appreciate the abundance of data the USGS Earth Explorer has to offer.

We’ve relentlessly hyped USGS Earth Explorer here, here and here… .and we’re about to do it again… From no data to hyperspectral data, USGS is the undisputed world champion of free satellite data providers. We sound like a broken record. Want a quick 3-D copy of something? Camera chip for smartphone provides superfine 3-D resolution. Imagine you need to have an almost exact copy of an object.

Want a quick 3-D copy of something? Camera chip for smartphone provides superfine 3-D resolution

Now imagine that you can just pull your smartphone out of your pocket, take a snapshot with its integrated 3-D imager, send it to your 3-D printer, and within minutes you have reproduced a replica accurate to within microns of the original object. This feat may soon be possible because of a new, tiny high-resolution 3-D imager developed at Caltech. Any time you want to make an exact copy of an object with a 3-D printer, the first step is to produce a high-resolution scan of the object with a 3-D camera that measures its height, width, and depth. Such 3-D imaging has been around for decades, but the most sensitive systems generally are too large and expensive to be used in consumer applications. A cheap, compact yet highly accurate new device known as a nanophotonic coherent imager (NCI) promises to change that.
