The next most important thing you need after a good phone is the right camera app. There are many to choose from, some free and some costing a hefty price for an app. But let’s be real, even an “expensive” app is about the same price as a Venti White Chocolate Macchiato from Starbucks. (if that’s really a thing)
Yes your phone has the regular camera that you are used to, but it keeps you locked out of all the features needed to make a shot your own, this is what I like to call Fully Auto, good for the quick point and shoot, but that’s about it.
Here are some Apps and what they have to offer
Filmborn from Mastin Labs
- Its Amazing!! But its not released to the public yet. I put it first because I want everyone to go to filmborn.com and sign up to be notified once the app is available.
Pros: Good camera with Manual Focus and Exposure control for a clean shot
An endless amount of filters that can help define the style you are going for.
Cons: Interface is confusing, and most filters can look too heavy and unnatural.
Pros: One of the best tools in getting the good exposure in an iPhone image
Cons: Cheesy filters and too much going on. Busy interface makes it hard to focus on the photo itself
