iStuff Sunday is a regular feature that I'll link to here on my blog. It's written by my friend David "The iMan" Leveen, who shot all the videos for our Light It! iPad and iPhone apps - as well as for the videos for our Wiley Publishing DVDs.

Each week David will cover some cool techniques and fun stuff for your iPad and iPhone - and maybe even for iLife and iWork users.

If you want to suggest a topic, let us know in the Comments section here.

Also let us know if you'd be interested in an iPhone workshop by the iMan.

Take it away, David.


Thank you David for sharing your awesome tips!

And speaking of awesome, below is a picture I took of the New Croton Dam that I took with my iPhone and enhanced with SmugMug's Camera Awesome app.

Envision the End Result


Yesterday on Google+ I posted the picture above asking folks, "Any guesses?"

I few folks got it right. Below is the original photograph.


The oil stain on the road reminded me of a comet, so I played with the image in Photoshop to create a comet-like image.

The messages here:
- Always have a camera with you.
- Take pictures every day.
- Envision the end result in Lightroom or Photoshop.

I too the picture with my iPhone. If you have an iPhone or iPad check out my apps. While you are on that page, check out the lens system I use. It's very cool!

Have Some iPad and iPhone Photo Fun This Weekend

 
Rick Sammon's HDR Portfolio
Soon to be renamed: iHDR.

My newest how-to app for the iPad is now available: Rick Sammon's HDR Portfolio (soon to be renamed - Rick Sammpn's iHDR). User feedback suggested that this instructional app is all about . . . Images, Imagination, Innovation and Interactive learning. Hence the i in iHDR.

This app is packed with HDR photos (my latest), info and movies. A great way to learn and experience HDR. iHDR will include the same great content as HDR Portfolio, but when the new version is release, it will feature a Favorites section, which is very cool.

Here is a look at my other apps.
