How Dan Rubin Takes Great Photos On His iPhone

Dan Rubin recently released a video for the Guardian and Observer newspapers in the UK with some great tips for taking better pictures on a Smartphone. He looks mostly at apps to help you take better photos but he also explains why these apps help and the techniques and effects they achieve. He covers both the capture and post processing approach to photography in the video but not so much the sharing aspect. Perhaps he just took for granted that people would be using Instagram.

Which apps of Dan’s are you using?

Although I have used and really liked many of the features in VSCO cam, I am using Pressgram as my main tool for capturing, applying filters and sharing photos. The quality of the filters and the sharing abilities make it a must have for me (although I would love the balance feature which is present in VSCO cam). Other than that I haven’t used any of the other Apps that Dan mentioned (though I have downloaded Average camera pro to try out).

I prefer using photoshop touch for touching up photos as he did with retouch and I also use HDR pro from time to time to take better HDR shots. I also generally switch my photos to my iPad to edit them as the extra workspace helps with the finer details and I don’t mind waiting a bit before I edit them.

What about you? What are your go to iPhotography apps, tools and tricks?
