Insta-iPhonography Friday 12.2.11

When my point and shoot camera decides not to work (which is more often than not), I turn to my iPhone to capture the little things in my life.

Oops, I put my mac & cheese and wine photo in there twice!

I particularly like to remember my cooking adventures each month:

I haven't DLed any new apps lately, but two that I enjoy are TiltShiftGen and MoreNoel. The free version of TiltShiftgen doesn't allow you to use photos from your camera roll, so you have to open the app to shoot a photo before applying the effect. After you click the shutter, the menu opens up the Blur, Color, and Vignette options. In the Blur option, you can use a line, circle or oval shaped focus, and increase/decrease the blur. In the Color option, you can adjust the overall saturation, brightness, and contrast. In the vignette option, you can darken up the corners of the photo. Then, you can save to your camera roll and/or export to twitter, facebook, and email. I like using this app to take photos with creative focus.

I found out about the MoreNoel app through another blog. (I would give credit, but I can't remember who wrote about it on her blog!) This app is so much fun! You can use the in-app camera, or you can choose a photo from your camera roll. When you have your photo, you tap on effects. You can either apply a star filter or night glare, and each effect has 3 levels - light, medium, strong. You can't apply both effects at the same time, but either effect does wonders to glam up a photo. I'm excited to use this app with photos of my Christmas decorations!
