The problem with photographing busy locations is that people will always be there to ruin your shots. But not anymore! Bye Bye Camera is an app that automatically removes people from your smartphone snaps. It’s an art project, a camera “for the post-human era,” but it definitely has a practical application, too!
A smartphone can be a great companion when you’re shooting landscape photos, and it’s not just because of its camera. There are some apps that can help you plan ahead and make the best of your photos. However, some of them are not user-friendly or they offer you too much unnecessary information.
So, in this video, Mark Denney suggests five apps that landscape photographers should have on their phones. They are simple, easy to use, and accurate. And almost all of them are free. Do you already use some of them?
Even if you don’t use a smartphone for creating videos, it can still be a useful addition to your workflow. There are tons of apps out there you could find useful, and Sareesh Sudhakaran from Wolfcrow shares some of them in his latest video. This is a list of 18 apps he actually uses, so take a look and you may find something useful for yourself, too.
No matter if you shoot film or digital, I’m sure you have at least a few rolls of film lying around the house. Our parents and their parents used film, and many precious memories are saved on it. So, if you want to revive the old memories or scan the film you shoot yourself, you may soon be able to do it with your smart device.
Abe Fetting is developing an app that lets you scan a roll of film with your smartphone and tablet. And in an instant, you have a positive image you can print or share on social networks.
Human trafficking is undoubtedly a huge problem on a global level. There are many organizations trying to solve it, and now there’s an app that helps all of us join this fight. TraffickCam is an app that allows users to contribute to the database of hotel rooms all over the world. All you need to do is snap a few photos of the hotel rooms in which you stay on your travels.
But how does this help? Well, sex traffickers make their victims pose in the hotel rooms for advertisements. The database of hotel rooms can help investigators determine where exactly the photos were taken. This way they can track down the traffickers, arrest them and save the victims.
The specs and a first image of the Leica Q Type 116 leaked almost a week ago, with one of the features being remote control via smartphones and tablets.
The said app has now been released ahead and users can play around with it while they wait for the actual camera.
The camera itself is expected to be announced within a couple of hours.
