While here’s a step by step guide if ya want it!
I use an array of different iPhone photo apps. In fact I’m obsessed with them. But my most used and favorites are Camera+, Hipstamatic and Instagram. Here’s how I process.
I take most of my photos in Camera+ and store them in the library there until I edit. So here, I snapped this photo which was super crappy and underexposed but I liked the angle.
I then applied the “Clarity” filter in Camera+ to make the outline of the various items in the image stand out. This filter is under “edit” once you have snapped the picture in Camera+. After I applied this filter I pressed done and “save” to get the image into my camera roll.
Love the pic but it needs more! So I went into Instagram and cropped to my liking. I then tapped the photo and pressed “tilt shift” and used the circle tilt shift to focus on the lamp post light. This blurred the castle. I then applied the X Pro II filter to darken everything out and WA LAA. You guys loved this pic.
Another option is to start a photo in Hipstamatic. Here’s Benny taken with the Watts lens and film. Note: you can buy a bunch of paks on Hipstamatic. I own them ALL and it is well worth it. The photo is already neat. But I always upload into Instagram for the little “oomph”.
Upload to Instagram. Tap to access tilt shift. Use the circle shift to focus on Benny’s face and apply the X Pro II film and boom:
And really sometimes all you need is a cool shot. You guys LOVED this. You know the hanging buckets on Main St? I just focused on that. Tilt shift to focus on in it Instagram and applied the Lomo filter.
Now you know my secrets. ;) Show me your photos!!!!!!!
