Imagine buying a Ferrari only to find that it’s not that great on pavement but kinda fun in the dirt. iCamera HDR is only a couple bucks, but might make you feel the same way after you take it for a test drive.
It was only last year, we think, that tiltshift photography really took off in the digital public. It caught on big and apps that purport to do this are many, but which of them are really up to the task and which make this fun photo process the easiest?
For starters, the effect only really works well when you have easily isolated subjects set in a scene with a long depth of field. This translates to mean that photos taken up close of a person are unlikely to yield very great results. It also means that pictures shot in under-optimal lighting conditions also tend not to render as well, as the backgrounds are already well out of focus. But with the right photo, the effects are something like magic.
By now, you've probably launched the Camera app and taken a few
pictures. Maybe you've even shared these pictures with other people.
Though the built-in camera doesn't do everything your point-and-shoot
does, and it will never have the optical abilities of a DSLR, it has a
major advantage over dedicated cameras: the iPhone OS lets you install
apps that take your pictures and video to another level.
Here are 10 great apps that let you create, modify and share your
images. You probably don't need all ten, as there's some feature
overlap among these apps. Try a few of these to see if your creative
mind enjoys using a variety of tools.
