Photo Tutorial: iPhone and Camera+

Hi everyone! Patti Wunder here, from Easton Place Design Studio. I'm bringing you a photo tutorial featuring the app Camera+. I've been using this app to take shop photos for roughly two years. Although I do own a lovely Nikon with lots of fancy stuff on it (most of which I have no clue how to use), I have become really comfortable using my phone and this app to take 90% of my product images. It has reduced a lot of the editing time because I do most of the editing on my phone before sending things to my computer or uploading directly. (Disclaimer: Some of the photos are blurry, because I was actually using "screen capture" to get the shot of how I use the Camera+ editing options. It's hard to keep the camera super steady while pushing the two buttons at once. Sorry.)

Okay, let's get started!

(Yes, I my kitchen doubles as my photo studio. Dishes will be done in about an hour.)

(In a perfect photo you wouldn't see my white iPhone either!)
This was a bit blurry, but I wanted to again show you how easy it is to brighten a shot even in a dark space.

I hope this is helpful when thinking about your product photos. I would probably take the final photo a step further to remove the line in the background using iPhoto, but I wanted this tutorial to just show you how easy it is to use your phone and the Camera+ app. When last I looked, the app cost $2.99. Really a deal in my opinion.

Best of luck! Let me know if this helps or if you've used it!
