My Primary Camera Folder

In honor of , Dan Burkholder, a man I admire for his iPhoneography, I decided to do something a little different today. The image is a screen print of one of my iPhone folders. In this particular folder I have a variety of my favorite 12 cameras. It is very important to organize your iPhone folders and screen pages when you start accumulating apps. This is just one of 3 folders I have full of cameras. Can you imagine carrying all of those with you in your traditional camera bag...lol? Actually all but the first row of my home screen is dedicated to iPhoneography with over 100 apps devoted to my passion. Now that is a lot of organizing.
As you know I use the ProHDR camera for many of my images. It is a favorite because of the quality. However it is rather slow processing the images so I am trying out TrueHDR. I will admit it I am still finding ProHDR to be my first choice due to familiarity. I have heard several good things and many friends currently prefer TrueHDR over ProHDR.
 The Hipstamatic really doesn't need an introduction. “The Hipstamatic brings back the look, feel, unpredictable beauty, and fun of plastic toy cameras of the past!” You chose the lens, film and type of flash for very different looks. The Hipsta is great for all types of photography and loved by all age groups. It performs well in low light and takes great portraits.
ProCamera, ClearCam, Camera and Camtastic all have features unique amongest them. I use ProCamera most often. I need to start using it more often but the creature of habit in me keeps going to ProHDR.
SeeThis is a camera I use when I am out all day and my creative juices are flowing. It takes a bit of practice before you'll get the hang of it and some personal instruction is helpful. It creates a look all of its own.
SlowShutter  is for the panning photographer in me. During those all day shoots when the creative flows, I start getting into a workflow that comprises of many varieties of iamges. Panning  the scene is a favorite thing for me to do. I have found that the iPhone pans much differently than a DSLR. I have also found that with some practice you can create a multiple exposure look. It is so much fun to find the time to play.
Burst Mode another camera I need to get out and practice playing with.
TrigonScope  is for true play. Just fun and crazy
8mm - I choose this video camera because I like the way it jumps around naturally. I have a tremor and have never been much of a videographer but with this camera you can't tell ;-)
Well I hope this blog inspired you to do two things: keep organized and go play with your cameras!

For those of you who do not know how to create screen prints, let me explain - Simply press the round home button at the bottom of the iPhone AND the power button at the top  - AT THE SAME TIME -  quickly and release quickly. If you did it correctly the screen will flash to white and then return. The screen print will appear in your Photo Album. BTW I use this feature daily for websites I don't want to forget, a map I need for quick reference and for my iPhoneography course - a picture tells a thousand words!

  1. Thank you for sharing the explanations and reasons for your preferences. The use tips are quite helpful. I would be remiss if I did not add my appreciation for the "Screen Shot" tip at the bottom of this blog entry. I was not aware of that feature.
    Happy St. Valentine's Day.
