My classmates (awesome new friends actually) have been patiently waiting for me to post another Bahamas blog. Well, I digress, this is not that blog; however, some day I'll finally complete that series.
While working on the Bahama blogs, I ended up with another island trip. I had the craziest flight from Anchorage to Honolulu, Hawaii. I had two layovers, one in Juneau and one in Seattle, and I eventually made it to Honolulu. I can't remember what happened during the decision process as to why I chose this particular flight schedule. I think it had something to do with getting more flight segements. Through the extended 12 hour journey, I started to get a tad stir-crazy and needed something to do to cure my wandering thoughts and boredom. So, on the last leg to Honolulu, I began to play around with my various photography and video apps.
At the end of this blog post is the final creation that I am very excited to share with all of you. I promise you, I laughed over a dozen times while making my Bahamas themed movie trailer.
I figured since I spent so much time playing with iphone apps, I would give you a quick glimpse of my favorite apps to use for editing on a smartphone. Let's face it... There's not always time to plug in a memory card, upload photos to a computer, edit, download, and share. Therefore, I've enjoyed being able to do some quick edits on the phone.
Number 4 favorite iPhone photo app:
Phonto - This text application is a fun way to add quotes or a signature to your photographs. I made sure they had my particular font first, which they did!
Number 3 favorite iPhone photo app:
Hyperlapse- I just started using this app as a recommendation from a photo buddy in Alaska (willdayphotography on Instagram). For those with the new upgrade on the iPhone, you have time-lapse capabilities. This app helps smooth out the shake from handholding while shooting a time-lapse.
Number 2 favorite iPhone photo app:
ProCam2 - I've enjoyed playing with this one when creating iPhone videos. I used it in my movie trailer at the end of this blog (along with iMovie for the iPhone).
Number 1 favorite iPhone photo app:
Lightroom - ahhhhhhhh, Lightroom. It's the best, and there is no doubt about it. Computer, tablet, smartphone... Doesn't matter. If you want a great editing program, you'll purchase Lightroom. I think it is one of the reasons they are taking aperture, the former Mac photographic editing program, off of Mac computers.
What does all this equal to?? Watch "Draw a Line in the Sand" below. It is a comical movie trailer about my journey to The Bahamas this past January. Let me know what you think in the comments section. Also, I have 14 other photography applications that I use. If you want to know any of those, shoot me a comment or message.
Enjoy the trailer! Maybe one day I'll create a real film... You never know... The sky's the limit!
