I KNOW I WAS when I bought my brand new 3GS last year. No zoom, no flash, no in camera editing options…great for fun snappy snaps but not much use for anything more ambitious.
Then I started to explore the apps a little, and was very happy to find a bunch dedicated to improving the phone’s native camera. I tried out as many as I could – replacement cameras editing tools, fun, novelty stuff…suddenly taking photos with the iPhone became a lot more fun.
While these tools won’t necessarily make you into a pro photographer, they can help you learn a little about how photography works and get you started on improving your composition, becoming aware of lighting and framing and other useful aspects of photography.
Below is a round up of the apps I’ve found most useful so far.
This is not comprehensive by any means, and new apps are appearing all the time, so please feel free to tell us your favorites in the comments below.
