My Top 5 Photo Apps for iPad|Trina Baker Photography 

My iPad has quickly become my mobile editor of choice when I am out shooting. I have five go to apps that add drama and flair to my images. VSCO is the first app I open. It has some amazing film stocks and the editor is quite good as well. I love that you get a live preview of the filters and you can control the intensity of the filters as well.

After VSCO I take my image into The Mextures app.  From this app I can choose from over 150 textures to add to my photos. Complete with unlimited layers and the ability to change the opacity of those layers, it is a pretty powerful app. You can save your “formulas” share and import them on social media.

Another favorite texture app I use is Stackables.  Quite similar to Mextures with the addition of layer masks. Easy to use interface and pre loaded formulas. A really solid app.

Diptic is my favorite collage app. I use this app to add text to images and make collages of social media sharing. Easy to use and loads of extra features.

Lastly I love WordSwag. This app allows me to add fancy text to my photos. It even has a quote generator and a searchable database of patterns and photos if you want to use them.

So there you have it. I use a lot of other apps to process my photos but these are my favorite and I use them on almost every photos I edit. The iPad is a fun tool and is getting more powerful with every version.  

Hot Rod Hullabaloo! |Trina Baker Photography

Busy weekend her in super hot LFK. Saw the Reverend Horton Heat and Piñata Protest on Thursday. Thursday is the weekend, right? Today I went to the Hot Rod Hullabaloo to see some amazing classic cars and listen to some live tunes in South Park. We are also having our annual Buskerfest this weekend. A busy weekend indeed!

Lensbaby Mobile LM10 Lens| Trina Baker Photography

I got my Lensbaby mobile lens this week and I love it! It’s really great to have the Lensbaby in my pocket ready to capture and embrace the blur at a moments notice. The lens was part of a Kicstarter campaign and will be available for purchase later this year. Here are some of my favorite images from this week edited with the VSCO app.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

Spring! | Trina Baker Photography

There were beautiful blue skies here in Kansas today. I couldn’t resist taking some quick photos of this lovely, white blooming tree in my neighbor’s back yard. Edited with a new iPhone app, PicTapGo and my new iPhone5, I love how bright and crisp these images are. This app is an amazing buy for 99 cents. It allows you to add filters, control the amount of each filter and share on social networks. Made by the creators of RadLab, it has some really awesome, yet simple, editing tools.

B&W Alley| Trina Baker Photogrpahy

The sun is out and it is slightly warmer today and the lingering snow is melting. Just a quick look of the alley being thawed out. I edited these with VSCO CAM app app for iPhone. Love the faded black and white look.

Snow Day| Trina Baker Photography

We finally got a substantial snow storm yesterday. 10 inches of fluffy white snow coated everything.  Today I was bold enough to step out with my iPhone and take some photos. I love the stark contrast of shadows against white snow.  Edited with the VSCO app and cropped in Snapseed, I really like the look of these black and white images. Sometimes I am always amazed what can be accomplished with my iPhone and a few apps.  Have a groovy weekend!

Double Exposure

It’s a new year and my app hiatus is over. I have downloaded a couple of new apps lately but my newest love is Image Blender. It allows you to blend two images together. I liked the idea of taking my landscape photos and blending them with architecture. Love this app and the results.

Dramatic Autumn

It was overcast today and the Autumn leaves, what’s left of them, we’re bursting with color. I took these photos downtown and edited them with Blux Camera and PhotoToaster on my iPad. Happy Saturday!

Puffy Clouds

It’s been too long since I have posted here. October was a busy month for me, but I thought I would share these wonderful puffy clouds with you. I took these with The Blux Camera app.

Bright Flowers

Just a quick peek of some flowers in my kitchen. Taken and edited with my iPhone and the 100 cameras in 1 app. Love how bright these turned out.

Angel Food & New iPhone App

Most days I don’t know what I will post on this blog. I usually go about my day until something interesting happens or I am inspired to take photos. Today was a pretty mundane day of house cleaning and grocery shopping. Blah. I decided to make an Angel Food cake to top with fruit for dessert tonight and thought it might be the perfect time to try out my new iPhone app VSCO CAM.  My friend Yvette turned me on to this app and I love it. Simple, elegant processing with the ease to upload to twitter, facebook & Instagram. It is my new go to app.
