9 iPhone 5 ProHDR Photos from Oahu, Hawaii

I am a big fan I am of the ProHDR app for iPhone. And if you didn’t already know…now you do. I love this app! The gallery below of ProHDR photos I took in Oahu, Hawaii recently has nine perfect examples of why I love it so much!

If you like these photos, check out my iPhone panoramic photos from Hawaii that I posted last week, then come back often because I also have a few galleries of photos taken with my Canon 5D MKII going up soon.

All photos taken with the ProHDR app on an Apple iPhone 5. The only editing that has been done is the use of iPhone’s “Auto-Enhance” feature, and the use of Photoshop to resize them for the Web.

9 iPhone 5 Panoramic Photos from Oahu, Hawaii

Hawaii is a beautiful place…everywhere you look you see something truly amazing. From the beaches, to the mountains, to the city, everything is simply incredible. On my recent trip to the island of Oahu I snapped hundreds of photos with my iPhone 5 so I put together a handful of my favorite panoramic shots for this gallery…

If you like these photos, check back soon because I have a gallery of iPhone 5 ProHDR images going up and few galleries of photos taken with my Canon 5D MKII as well.

10 iPhone 5 Panoramic Beach Photos

Apple’s new iPhone 5 has a really awesome panoramic feature built into the camera that works much better than other similar third part apps I’ve tried in the past. Here are 10 random panos of beaches around Southern California—from Laguna Beach in Orange County to La Jolla Cove in San Diego and beyond.

15 iPhone 5 Pro HDR Beach Photos

The Pro HDR app is easily the best $1.99 I ever spent on an iPhone app. Within seconds I can turn a pretty ordinary object or scene into an incredible image…all from my phone. Over the past few months I shot more than a handful of Pro HDR photos at various beaches around Orange County and San Diego, so I decided to share 15 of my favorites…

All photos here were shot with Apple’s iPhone 5 using the Pro HDR app. No other editing has been done except resizing in Photoshop and occasionally using the “Auto Enhance” feature built into iPhone’s camera app.

10 HDR iPhone Photos From The Netherlands

In December, just before heading off to Asia for five weeks, I went to the Netherlands to cover the 2011 Vans Rebeljam for ridebmx.com, and while I was there I spent a few extra days wondering around Eindhoven and Amsterdam. Since I had already shot a bunch of travel photos around Amsterdam a few years ago I decided to just use my iPhone to document my aimless meandering this time. Here are 10 photos from the two cities shot on iPhone 4’s Pro HDR app, and one bonus panoramic picture, too.

10 Random HDR iPhone Photos

I’m not afraid to admit this…I’m pretty much in love with the Pro HDR photo app for iPhone 4. I’m constantly blown away at how quickly and easily I can create awesome images right from my phone. Here are 10 random HRD iPhone photos from Long Beach, San Pedro, and Los Angeles, California.

My Best iPhone Photo Apps – 10 Images From Downtown Long Beach

While pedaling around Downtown Long Beach on my bike today I pulled out my iPhone 4 to try out a few new photo apps I recently downloaded. Then I got the idea to make a quick series of photos using the different apps… So the following 10 images were all created and edited with different apps on the Apple iPhone 4 within a span of about an hour and a half on the evening of January 18, 2011. Enjoy!


* Images have been scaled down in Photoshop on my computer to upload easier. The Hipstamatic images were accidentally shot using the “low quality” setting. Woops!


Here are the the different iPhone 4 photography apps I use…

Camera – The stock camera on iPhone 4 is really good, and I still use it most often for taking snapshots with the phone.

Hipstamatic – This app is super popular and is kind of a cheater’s way of making a cool image. But I don’t care, call me a cheater… A cool image is a cool image in my book. My favorite lens and film combo is the John S lens with Kodot XGrizzled film.

AutoStitch Panorama – Overall I am really impressed with the AutoStitch app. It makes great panoramic images, but since you have to take several individual photos and “stitch” them together, it doesn’t always produce the results I hope for. I think I’m starting to like 360 Pano a bit better now that I’ve used it more. However, because AutoStitch uses individual photos, the end result is sharper than 360 Pano, so I feel like I have to choose which app to use based off the intended usage of the photo. The cropping tool works great, too.

Pro HDR – This is probably my favorite photo app so far…well worth the $1.99 price tag. It has plenty of manual controls to tweak your photo, and it is super easy to use. I’ve been extremely impressed with the quality of the images it produces and I don’t feel like any other apps give me the the flexibility that this one does. I would recommend this app to everyone that owns an iPhone 4.

OldPhotoPRO
– This is a pretty rad app that has really cool results. Some people may love the look, and others may hate it, but I’m into it. However, I haven’t paid for the high-resolution (and ad-free) upgrade, so my image quality hovers around 640 x 479 pixels, which is really small compared to what iPhone 4 is capable of cranking out.

Camera+ – Am I missing something here? Besides being able to set a self timer, I haven’t found a time when this app comes in handy. I never use it.

360 Panorama – With this app you simply wave your phone through the air (slowly and smoothly) for the app to capture what’s in front of it and build a panoramic photo out of the scene. The image is created seamlessly, so there aren’t ever any vertical lines showing where multiple images have been stitched together, but the cropping tool is difficult to use, and the image quality isn’t as sharp as I’d like it to be.

TiltShiftGen – Creating a tilt-shift effect is pretty cool, but even though this app is easy to use and produces good results, I’m either just not a fan of the tilt-shift look, or I simply haven’t found many instances where it is effective. This one is almost more of a novelty app to me as opposed to something with a great function.

iTimeLapse – This app is more for the video side of things, and I haven’t used it enough to figure out if I like it or not.

PS Express – I only keep this app around for basic photo editing—rotating images or adjusting the contrast, saturation, or exposure. It gets the job done.

CameraBag – This app has a bunch of different types of photo filters built in, but I don’t like any of them very much so I rarely use the app.

8mm Vintage Camera – This is another video app, so I won’t go into details here, and although I love this one for Twitter videos, I have never tried it out in any other outlets.

My Top 10 iPhone Photos

I currently have 4,388 media files in the camera roll on my iPhone 4 that I started accumulating around October of 2007. A few files are video clips, some are screen shots, and others are files that were sent to me that I saved. However, most are photos I took with the phone.

Since it is raining in Long Beach today and I can’t go ride my bike I took the down time to look back through all of my images and managed to pick out my top 10 iPhone photos of all time.

None of the photos have been altered on the computer (with the exception of scaling down some of the larger ones), and the panoramic photos were created using the AutoStitch Panorama app for iPhone.
