So I will give you Ten Tips to make an awesome shot with your iPhone.

1. iPhone/iPad

Here it`s up to you. In my project I used an iPhone 3Gs but you can use any iPhone or iPad, the newer the better because of the megapixels.

2. Apps

All the apps that I use to take my shots are paid. You can use the camera that comes with the iphone/iPad, but I prefer another one. So the apps that i used in these photos are: Pro HDR, Dynamic Light, Snapseed, PhotoForge2 and Instagram. Sometimes I also use Camera+ when I want to take a simple shot.

3. Pro HDR

Like the app says, you will take an HDR photo with your iPhone/iPad. Simply choose the auto settings, be very still or use a tripod and tap on the screen to take the to photos. After you take the HDR it will appear some options. In this step you can configure the way you like it. After that just save it.

4. Dynamic Light

After I saved the HDR photo I will open it on Dynamic Light. This is another great app to highlight the colors and contrasts. After you open the photo select the FX Overcooked HDR then configure the settings, as you like. Save it.

5. Snapseed

This is one of my favorites apps. If you`re luck you can get it for free. Sometimes its free for a limited time. In here I use several options, it depends what I am looking to make. So here I leave to your consideration to explore this application that has immense potential to transform photos.

6. PhotoForge2

This app have almost like every options that Snapseed has, but has another ones that Snapseed doesn`t have and I like it. In the FX there`s a paid option called "Pop! Cam" that has greats effects. I normally use the Rolls and Lens Effect.

7. Camera+

This must be the most popular app to take photos. When I want to take a quick photo I use this app. I think I only used like 3 times the effects of Camera+ on the photos.

So I really only use this one to take quick photos without HDR.

8. Instagram

This is the best social app to share your photos. A great way to follow some great users, by the way my username is @ocipriano if you want to check more of my photos.

9. Panorama

This is a little extra. I love panoramic photos and I tested a lot of apps. I found one app that makes awesome panoramic photos.

AutoStitch it`s so easy to use and perfect that I was amazed with the result. This is another paid app but it`s worth the money. You can check in my instagram portfolio some panoramas that I made.

10. Creativity

Maybe this is the most important tip and the one that anyone knows :)

Be creative and flees to the rules you know, this is iPhoneography and not Photography.

Hope you like my iPhoneography Tips.
