Learn Photo365 App Brings Daily Photography Assignments To Android

learnphoto365

If you’re an iOS device user, then you probably have tried the Learn Photo365 app already. Learn Photo365 has been available on Apple iOS devices for some time now, but only recently launched their Android version.

The best way to learn about photography and become more familiar with the capabilities of your camera is not sitting at your computer watching a tutorial or sitting in some class at your local community college, it’s out in the world. An important piece to staying sharp as a photographer is constantly utilizing your skills, and if there are no paying jobs, then doing so just for the sake of doing so is what needs to be done. But how does one decide what to go out and shoot? What should you practice today?

iOS Apps for the Serious Mobile Photographer

Fact: in this day and age there are entire exhibits in brick and mortar galleries dedicated to projects done with camera phones. They’re often great and include photos from photographers that put the aesthetics of an image first and foremost. And folks digg it.

For lots of work involving capturing a scene (and to some degrees, creating) you’ve got all you need in a phone and don’t need to glorious bokeh that a full frame camera can afford you. Instead, the killer feature of a phone includes the apps, sometimes lenses and cases. But you don’t need much of the hardware stuff to get more from your cameraphone.

If you’re an iOS user, then check out this list.

It’s not often that a new photography app really elicits a cool new interface and features, but the Polaroid Hotel App is totally looking to do that. It’s a free app that was released earlier this month by photographer Patrick Hoelck.

Essentially it boasts a couple of features: a camera, short films, an out of print Polaroid book, and your own curated Polaroid Hotel. The Hotel includes images that you’ve shot, edited and specifically curated from your batches. You’ve got the option of shooting images and applying filters or selecting from your camera roll. As with all Polaroids, your images are going to be Square with the special frame. In a way, it’s kind of like Instagram before Facebook realized that it was cool.

Please Read: Why Do We Need $35,000 For La Noir Image?

If you’re a reader of the Phoblographer, you know that we need money for our Kickstarter. It’s come to my attention a number of times that $35,000 sounds pretty high for what a digital magazine needs to actually operate. For some folks, this sounds ridiculous for a digital magazine; but for others it actually sounds too low. In all honesty, it is too low; and we need more than $35,000 to really get this going.

I’m going to explain what the money is going towards for La Noir Image.

MuseCam: A Manual Camera and Advanced Photo Editor for iOS

If you’re looking for yet another app to shoot and edit your photos, consider a new option recently announced called MuseCam. This app is promising a lot according to the company’s website. For starters, you’ve got film emulating presets in an interface that resembles what you see from VSCO, Instagram, EyeEm and RNI Films. What’s interesting about the interface is that as you swipe on the image itself, you’ll go to another photo in your camera roll.

What’s even more interesting is that ISO controls are available in very small increments. For example, you can shoot at 301, 302 or 304 ISO if you’d like. It’s a significantly different approach to photography and exposure controls that what we’ve seen in the photo world.

16 Days Left: $10 From Everyone Will Help Our Kickstarter Goal

Screen Shot 2016-05-16 at 10.31.59 AM

Hey everyone,

We’ve got 16 days left in our Kickstarter and we could really use everyone’s help!

To recap: La Noir Image is turning into an iOS and Android e-magazine that wants you to curl up with it and inspire you to get out there and shoot everyday. The current prototype is a PDF, but the final version will be a fully working app with lots of interactivity.

The money is going to go towards funding the site for the first year. Additionally, it will help us with the creation of lots of new types of content like tutorials, longer interviews, photo essays, musings, etc. You can see more of this on La Noir Image’s website. I promise you that it’s going to be much better than everything else out there that is comparable in the photo world. Considering I’ve taken the Phoblographer this far, it just adds to the validity.

Why La Noir Image? It’s the easiest spelling for so many people out there to remember and spell with ease; take it from a guy who created a website called The Phoblographer.

Donations start at $10/yearly subscription; which we could use a lot of. But we also need a lot more donations in general or else we and all who donated will lose out.

Please help; as we’ve got 16 days left.

Thanks!

 

EyeEm’s New App Helps You Organize Your Camera Roll Photos

TheRoll_search

One of the problems with iOS and the Camera Roll is that the organization really sucks. If I’m looking for a photo that I’ve shot and edited in black and white from all the way back in December, it’s tough for me to go through and get to it. Or, at least it’s time consuming. And that’s where EyeEm’s new app “The Roll” is looking to change things.

According to EyeEm Co­founder and Product Lead Lorenz Aschoff. “It’s as easy as one tap to quickly organize thousands of your images and find your best ones.”
