January 2018 Meeting - Stoney Stone

Guest speaker David 'Stoney' Stone kicked off 2018 with an inspiring presentation on smartphone photography at our January 9 meeting. His richly illustrated talk demonstrated the 'art of the possible' with this ubiquitous tool, reinforcing the notion that the best camera is the one you have ready to use.

Stoney talked about some of the apps he uses both for greater control of initial image capture and for post-processing right on the phone. His own phone photography almost never goes to the computer!

Below is a list of some of the apps Stoney mentioned in his talk. Most (if not all) are available for both iPhone and Android phones. Search by name to learn more about them and find the version for your phone.

ProCamera - manual camera control and more
Camera Plus Pro - manual camera control and more
Snapseed - on-phone editing
Hipstamatic - retro-styled images based on various analog film and lens combinations
Tintype (by Hipstamatic) - Inspired by daguerreotypes, tintypes, and other photographic processes from over a hundred years ago
Prisma - transforms photos into works of art using the styles of famous artists
