App review : Photo Academy – Highly recommended
Hello everyone ,
While I was browsing the app store today , I came across this splendid app that teaches you what you want to know about photography . I think it’s so amazing , so basic in the term of usage and most importantly , it has a wonderful design ( I get hooked by the design so easily ) . So , I will show you what is this photo academy app with a few photos demonstrations .
Fasten your seat belts and let’s start ,,,
The app is brand new , it costs almost 3$ *totally worth it*
Take a look to this video , it will explain all ^_^
OK lets start with the screenshots and my review .
This is the app icon .
The starting page , simple yet elegant .
The main menu , what a splendid design . Here you have 5 main options . Photo 101 , How to… , shoot Diary , News and info. Basically you will only need the first three options.
Photo 101 , it’s the basic guide for you to understand terms and basics of photography , even if you are familiar with them , there is no harm to read it cause you might skipped one or two tips from here or there. So read it .
Here is an example of one of the photo 101 tips. It’s well presented , well designed and so comfortable for the eyes to read.
Now moving to the second option which is
How to shoot …
In this section the app will show you different techniques to shoot a certain object , birds for example. It will show you the best of the bests methods to get the full advantage of the situation that you are in .
Within each main category , there are many sub categories that you can choose from to be specific . And that’s one of the best things that I like about the app.
After choosing a specific category , it will gives you options to choose from, for example *as you can see in the picture* , general tips , camera settings ,….. Etc . You should take a look at all of them cuz they are so useful .
Now this is what I like the most about the app. It shows you the camera settings that you need , written tips and an example in most cases. People often get confused ‘which setting should I choose for this’ now this app make it simple for you.
As you can see it will explain the settings for you so easily .
You will find in the bottom of each category a gallery section which allows you to get access to the examples that the app used to demonstrate technique.
The diary section is important to write down notes , tips that you have learned in reality and to share you experience in the social network sites.
Just one thing to be mentioned . The micro-photos section is locked and you should pay 1$ to unlock it . Otherwise the app deserves 10/10 as a rating
