the best Apps For the Shoot
Smartphone apps and quick desktop tools can be extremely handy on set. here’s Stephan Fleet’s go-to apps for production
Simple HDR: This app controls a Ricoh Theta S to shoot bracketed photos. The app does not yet support the newer Theta V, but the maker is planning an update.
Filemaker: I wrote my own Filemaker app that works on an iphone to transfer on-set notes and data into a database. It’s easy, one-handed (ipads are too bulky for me), and emails all the tech data out at the end of the night.
Photomatix Pro: I use this for stitching HDRS. It’s better than Photoshop because it can batch folders. The built-in Photoshop Merge to HDR feature works just fine, too.
