Take bet­ter smart­phone shots with our pick of the best pho­tog­ra­phy apps out there

Digital Camera World - - PHOTO PROJECTS -

With the wealth of pho­tog­ra­phy apps out there nowa­days, it can be easy to feel over­whelmed by them all. That’s why we’ve picked out our three favourite apps on the mar­ket for you to try.

VSCO [1] VSCO is an app that de­liv­ers as an all-round edit­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. It con­tains a vast range of edit­ing tools, pre­sets and so­cial fea­tures. Among our favourite fea­tures are the film­like pre­sets, which achieve ana­logue looks and are named af­ter fa­mous film types such as Ko­dak Por­tra 160. You can also share your im­ages with the app’s 30 mil­lion other users on VSCO’s in-app so­cial plat­form.

In its most re­cent up­date, VSCO has en­abled you to edit raw pho­tos shot from smart­phones or up­loaded from cam­eras. The app is avail­able in the App Store for iOS and on Google Play for An­droid, and is free to down­load.

Slow Shut­ter Cam [2] This clever lit­tle app repli­cates the slow shut­ter speed of a DSLR. It of­fers three cap­ture modes: mo­tion blur, light trail and low light. One of the best fea­tures of this app is that it al­lows you to view the im­age in a real-time pre­view, some­thing that DSLRs can’t do. It also al­lows you to pause and re­sume your cap­ture while re­leas­ing the shut­ter for an un­lim­ited amount of time. Slow Shut­ter Cam is avail­able in the App Store for iOS and costs £1.99 to buy. www.cog­i­

SKRWT [3] We’ve all no­ticed at one time or an­other when tak­ing a pic­ture on our phones that the per­spec­tive doesn’t look quite right. Point­ing a camera up­wards dis­torts ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal lines so that they con­verge. (This is also known as keyston­ing.) SKRWT is a cool lit­tle app that fixes this prob­lem with its three main fea­tures: a straight­en­ing tool, a ver­ti­cal cor­rec­tion tool and a hor­i­zon­tal cor­rec­tion tool. If you’re look­ing to cre­ate sym­me­try in your im­ages, this one is for you. It’s avail­able in the App Store for iOS and on Google Play for An­droid, and costs £1.99 to buy.
