3 of a Kind

ISO64 4.28mm f/2.4 1/60sec

So, I often get asked… ” Hey! Mr. Photo Man I bet you have a lot of photo taker apps on your touchy telephone don’t you?.. DONT YOU?!?” (I guess I have a lot of conversations with enraged drunks). So I thought I would break down the 4 photog apps that I currently have and use on my iphone, only 2 of which are actual photo editing apps, and you can do with it as you like. So here it is… I now bring you:

The Nick Exposed Approved iPhonography apps 

  1. Xposure – Although this app has a good hand full of Im sure useful functions, I only use it for one reason… An extremely accurate Sunrise and Sunset counter. It helps to know when the “Golden Hour” will be arriving.
  2. Bracket Mode- Im a sucker for shooting HDR on certain subjects, and this app allows me to auto bracket 3 exposures separately and combine them in Photomatix later rather than relying on an hdr app to “Get things right”.
  3. Instagram- This is more of a pass time app, and although I don’t use it as much anymore, I cant help but play with the different filters every once in a while.
  4. Snapseed- This is by far one of my all time fav apps that I have on my phone! This is like having Lightroom on the go, with such a wide range of precision editing features and similar controls to that of Nik Softwares actual photo editing softwares for mac and pc.

So there you have it, the only 4 photo apps I have and need on my iPhone. Take it or leave it as you may, but at least I now have a post to send all the crazy drunkards to hahaha.

  1. Snapseed is so my favourite app on my iphone/ipad

  2. I don’t have any yet but these seem like a good start.

  3. Terrific photo (and nice info on apps, too)

  4. Snapseed. 100% agree. Excellent app.

  5. I have Photoshop for iPad. On my phone I have Tap, tap, tap, which I don’t use much. Two photography-related apps I like are Stuck on Earth and The Photographer’s Ephemeris.

    • Stuck on Earth is so awesome!! Wish it was available for iPhone. Its one of the top reasons why I will be getting an iPad in the coming months haha. Thanks Rachael!

    Stunning shot as usual Nick. 🙂

    Great shot!!!! I like very much the composition, geometry and colour. Well seen!!! About the software… I don’t have a camera in my mobile phone (don’t ask me where I obtained it, but I like it. I just want it to phone).

  8. This has to be one of my “top 5” favorite shots that I’ve seen since I began following your blog. “Stunning” is the best I can do to communicate what I think of it.

  9. First off great shot – second off only 4 photo apps? I’m impressed!

    Are these the only 4 you have or the only ones you use? I use Photo+ and Snapseed almost religously. Instagram I use occassionally but not as much as I did when it first came out.

    However, I must be an app whore because I have 3 folders full of photo apps that I rarely use but occassionally turn on to try and remember why I downloaded them in the first place. Most of the time its for something like taking panoramics or bleach bypass for some filters that I’ll probably never use but I like having them anyways.

    • Oh trust me I used to be an app whore too, but a few months ago I cut it down to just these 4 and deleted the rest. Being I use my phone to run my business I like it to be rather simple, and not filled with all sorts of apps that I dont use. In-fact I only have one game app and Im even contemplating deleting that haha. Thanks for the comment Lama!

  10. I love the composition and the colors of this photo. So far I don’t have any apps on my phone except the ones that came on it, which is far too many. But I think I’ll get the last one you mentioned. Sounds like a good place to learn something new.

  11. This is a great photo Nick. I’m loving the gray scale with the splash of red. I’m curious, how much was done to the photo after the shot, if anything?

    • Thanks Glendene! A fair amount was done to the coloring of the image bringing it to a more dramatic feel. All the editing was done in Snapseed on my iphone. Thanks again 🙂

  12. Nice shot. I have Apps 3&4. Love ’em.
