Create Impressive HDR Images with your Iphone

By Anthony Thurston on May 20th 2013

PureShot, and Iphone App, was recently updated to version 2.0.  Amongst the new features is a brand new 3 shot bracketing feature. This means you can now take true, real, and unadulterated HDR images with your Iphone. Am I the only one who thinks that is pretty cool?

Sure, the one downside to the app is that it does not have a HDR processor built in. This means you still have to load the images to your computer to merge them into an HDR and process them. But I think that most professionals using their Iphone for HDR would prefer that anyway. There are other HDR processing apps that you can buy for your phone if you must do the processing on your phone, but if it were me I would just load them onto the PC and process them on my 23” display.

Are you curious about shooting better HDR imagery? Make sure to check out our comprehensive guide to HDR photography. The 10 hour workshop is available for digital download or physical DVD from the SLR Lounge store.

Of course the workshop is centered around shooting HDR with DSLR cameras, but many of the same principals can be applied to shooting HDR with your Iphone. It’s just a matter of converting the settings from DSLR to PureShot.

    That’s pretty cool. iPhonography is hot right now simply because a lot of “regular” folk are so intimidated by the time and cost of getting a DSLR. Those of us who do some teaching or instruction find this kind of stuff useful to pass on to those iPhone users who want to get into photography a little bit deeper. Keep it coming!
