Photography Applications for Your iPhone/iPod Touch


If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, do you use applications for your photography, your business, for fun? I recently came across a bunch of photography app’s for my iPhone (some have been mentioned recently on the Pictage forums) and I can’t seem to decide which ones to use. I have gathered together the following applications that look fun and useful, they are listed along with their price and star rating according to iTunes. Which ones do you use and why or why not?

Inside the Image with Grant Oakes


Thank you to Grant Oakes of Grant Oakes Photography for letting us Inside the Image.

“In April of this year I conducted a wedding workshop in the Bahamas and on the first day we were doing a fashion style session in and around the Atlantis Resort a few hours before the wedding.  There was this amazing light coming down from an overhead skylight adjacent to the hallway by the aquarium and had smoke coming up from a faux well that created a very surreal look.  I positioned the couple on the ledge around the well, got back as far as I could (wedged against a wall) and put the camera near the floor and took the image without looking through the view finder.  The image was taken with a 15mm fisheye on a Canon 5D Mark II at 1/25th of a second shutter speed at f2.8.”

Being New on the Pictage Forums

Picture this: you’re a new photographer, just getting serious about weddings. You’ve done a handful of weddings – and loved it – but just don’t quite understand how to dive in to the world of wedding photography. You have a passion for creating images, but no clue how to run a successful business.

Sound familiar? That was me, just two years ago.

After trying to get my business off the ground for a year, I started thinking about how I could make my photography business stand out in the crowd – I just didn’t know where to start.

Then, I heard about Pictage. I joined mainly because of the ease of online viewing and print order fulfillment. I thought this was the key to growing my business. I was right – but what I didn’t know was that the biggest factor in my success wasn’t found in the client interface, but in the …

Images and Stories — Photographer Images Adorn our Walls: Phase 1


Recently Pictage CEO Jim Collins posted on the Pictage Forums asking photographers to send in images that we would be able to hang on the Pictage walls. He asked for images that the photographers felt were not typical wedding or even wedding at all, but most importantly had stories behind them. We are in the process of putting all of them on the walls, but want to say thank you to everyone who submitted photos… we love them and can’t wait to put them up.

Here is the first batch that we want to share with you.

Matthew Grazier of Grazier Photography

While shooting Justin Marantz and his groomsmen at Justin and Mary Marantz’s wedding, Justin showed me an old 4×5 camera in the back of his truck. I immediately tried this shot, I tried it over and over again but the pavement kept getting blown out by the sun. By chance, one …
