Experimenting with Camera! on Iphone

I don’t know how many photo apps I’ve been through since I started on the Apple iPhones. With each release of the iPhone the camera gets better and so do the apps that support more functionalities. At this moment, I have snapseed, camerabag, instagram, camera! and a few others installed on the phone. No one app does everything I want, which mean tweaking and manipulating pictures across multiple applications.

The one that seems to come closest (at the moment) appears to be camera! (with the exclamation). I like this because it allows me to choose an exposure point and focus point separately. This is useful as I can under- or over-expose my pictures based which part of the image I wish to use to lighten or darken. The filters are decent too.

Here are a couple of these pictures processed with Camera! with the originals for comparison.

The next set of pictures are a closeup of one of the plants. Given that there are about 255000 different combinations between the choice of preset, filters and textures (cost £6.99/$9.99), the possibilities are endless.

The application is free and comes with only 36 free presets, filters, textures and frames (9 each), but I like it (so far!), and I’m sure there’ll be something else in the future which I will like even more!
