Just today, Becky Higgins posted yet another lovely iPhone camera app: Camera+. First of all, the app takes a pretty sweet photo...better than just taking it with the iPhone camera app. It gives you a 9 x 9 grid in your field of vision, which helps greatly when establishing your focal point (rule of thirds, baby!). I used what is called FX Effects --> Magic Hour for the photo of Max below to even out the contrast. This effect had a slider that I could use to determine the degree of the effect.
The best part: for a limited time, the app is 99 cents! Woot! Now my Nikon is completely nervous.
