iPhone Applications for Photo Enthusiasts

The Husband not so long ago upgraded to a new phone.  After three years of waiting for the iPhone 4, he finally acquired the phone he wanted.  I know that sounded quite weird--waiting for an iPhone 4 for three years when it only came out this year.  My Husband is a patient man.  When the iPhone came out a few years back, he said he wanted that kind of phone and more.  He knew that in the long run Apple would come out with an iPhone that would cater to all his needs.  And it did.  Patience is indeed a virtue.

Now that he has one, we are now experiencing and enjoying the world of applications and the ones we enjoy most are the apps for photo enthusiasts.

Here are a few of the Apps we like:

Hipstamatic iPhone App gives you the look and feel of lomo-like images.  If you are a Lomography enthusiast, you will love this as much I do.  You can choose your film, lens and and flash, just like you're using a lomography camera.

Here are some samples of the photos we've took:

Diptic iPhone App lets you quickly and easily combine two or three of your photos to create a new image. The resulting photograph is called a diptych (if it is made up of two images) or a triptych (if it is made up of three images). Diptychs and triptychs have been used for many years in art photography. With this app, anyone can quickly and easily create diptychs and triptychs.  Buy this app here and you can make creative collages.

Instagram app is an easy way to share your photos online.  Snap a photo with your iPhone, choose a filter to transform the look and feel, send to Facebook, Twitter or Flickr – it’s all as easy as pie. It’s photo sharing, reinvented. You can buy this app here.

Here's a photo we took of a train station in Sydney.  We took this one while we were waiting for the train.  We used a filter to make it look like a lomo photograph.
