365 Challenge #296 - jumping on the iPhone bandwagon

Sooo...after a couple of years of resisting iPhone mania, giving preference to Blackberry, which I've used for about 10 years - I took the plunge yesterday and upgraded to my first iPhone.

I'be been exploring the App Store and asking my photog buddies which photography-related Apps they use and like.

Here's part a list of what they've suggested so far and others I've found myself. Methinks it's going to be a whole new world! I'm also debating whether to start a 365 iPhone Photo Challenge, or incorporate it into this one. We'll see!

Hipstamatic - Description from the iTunes site: "Pictures taken with the Hipstamatic have their very own look and unique character. Artistic and painted with light and quirk, Hipstamatic images are sometimes surprising and offer a delicate beauty turning any iPhone into an instant art making machine. Images can be uploaded directly to Facebook, Flickr, or emailed to your friends and family."

Easy Release - "Easy Release replaces inconvenient paper release forms with a slick, streamlined application designed by professional photographers for professional photographers...it lets you collect all the data and signatures you need right on your iPhone, then mails a PDF and JPEG of the release right to you."

ShakeItPhoto - "ShakeItPhoto is the most realistic instant photo experience for the iPhone. Works just like an instant camera. Watch the photo develop. Shake your iPhone to make it develop faster."

Quad Camera - "Just pressing a button, QuadCam proceeds to take 4-8 serial shoots and create one image with 6 selectable effects."

There's a whole raft of photography Apps on iTunes, which I'm sure could will be fun to experiment with as I get my head around this new little plaything! Stay tuned for my first attempts at iPhone photography.


  1. Welcome to the Iphone bandwagon. Just stumbled onto your 365 blog via the keyword phrase 'Iphone + 365'. Love the site and your photography. Noticed that you are nearing the end of your 365. Hope you keep up the project past the 'official end!

  2. Thanks for your comments Dave. I'm loving the iphone! Will definitely keep up some form of challenge after this 365 challenge ends.
