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?
This is where Learn Photo365 comes in. The popular app provides you with a list of photo assignments that will help you learn or hone your photography skills, so that rather than sitting inside not really learning your camera and gear, you are out in the world applying yourself and becoming a better photographer while becoming more in tune with your camera.
Using the app is simple enough, upon loading up the app you simply select the category for the type of photo assignment that you would like to accomplish, and then the app spits out an assignment for you to complete. Depending on the category your chose the assignment could be anything from capturing motion, to composition using leading lines.
Another cool aspect of this app is it’s 365/52 week/30 day challenge list maker. For those of you who like to take part in those sort of challenges, the app will generate a list of things for you to do (one per day) and then remind you each day about your project and that day’s task. Perfect for those of us who need to write everything down in order to remember it.
The main app is paid, $3.99, but if you are wanting to try it out without investing the full purchase price they also have a free version that you can use to evaluate the system. This would be a great way to see if the assignments and app layout work for you. The free version can be found on the Play store here. If you already know that you need the full version you can find that here.
