Learning about iPhone and Android captures

It was suggested at the Holiday Party, so here we are! I know it is Super Bowl Sunday, but this will be waaaaay before the game, so join us!

iPhone and Android enthusiasts, we will get together at the location and discuss and download applications to assist in giving our pictures that little extra...Umpf!

99% of the application out there are Free or 99 cents. So I will be suggesting the ones I use the most and showing how to use them. (Please check on your particular phone on how to add Applications, in case you don't know how).

Then off to use what we learned and put to practical use. great time to learn what is out there and enjoy the day. So far it is suppose to be overcast, which lends to diffused lighting and perfect for Mayfield Park.

    I'm glad everyone could make it. Hopefully we were helpful in getting you started. Please feel free to take additional shots this week and #tracymayfield on instagram and be sure to follow each other!

    Tracy and her daughter were SO generous with their time! Very much appreciated.

    Thanks to Tracy for deciding that retreat into Central Market was the best idea for today's MeetUp. Those who accompanied her got to share and learn about smartphone photography, and we could easily download new apps due to CM's public wi-fi.

    February 2, 2014

  • TA B.

    Dress Warm, we are still meeting at Mayfield Park at 10 am. Please be on time, if we have to change venues. I will not be able to post on to meetup once I am there.

    February 2, 2014

    • Steve C.

      Heading there soon.

      Sorry too cold for me!

      February 2, 2014

  • Caroline B.

    Sorry. I'm being a cold weather wimp and won't make it. I'll share 2 other apps I like. Hueless for black/white photos. Superimpose is the best for layering and masking. It has a color selection tool that makes it really user friendly

    February 2, 2014

  • Rocks

    Tried to download the photo apps this morning, but can't remember my (recently changed) Apple password. Sorry to miss you this morning. I'll hope to catch you next time.

  • TA B.

    If it's raining we will still meet at Mayfield and go to an alternate location from there. Chances are we will be fine

    February 1, 2014

  • Barbara

    Ok hope I'm not too late to get notices …like alternate sites if rain. I will show up with my iphone, which, by the way, I don't think takes any better pictures than my old smart phone! Maybe some apps will help.

    February 1, 2014

    • TA B.

      Already sent odf

      February 1, 2014

    • TA B.

      Off that is. I will try and send you an update tonight

      February 1, 2014

  • NSM

    How will we find you at the park? Never been

    February 1, 2014

    • TA B.

      It's a small park you cannot miss us

      February 1, 2014

  • Rocks

    Sunday's weather is predicted to be cold w/possible rain. Just wanted to ask if we're meeting indoors?

    February 1, 2014

    • TA B.

      Can adjust

      February 1, 2014

    • TA B.

      Central market or whole foods isn't too far and I have photographed both before

      February 1, 2014

  • TA B.

    I'll also go over different attachments at the Meetup and purchasing options

    January 31, 2014

  • Miles

    Oops, not enough time to get a fisheye lens from eBay this time, but still worth getting for future fun.

    January 30, 2014

  • Miles

    I've been having fun with a $10 fisheye lens attachment for my smartphone. You can purchase them on eBay. If you want to get one before this event, I'd recommend using eBay's Advanced Search option and selecting Location | Located in United States.

  • Steve C.

    Looking forward to seeing what others are doing with their smartphones. My favorite camera is the one I have with me and I always have my iPhone with me. It's what I usually use to post to social media before I get home to post process my DSLR images.

    January 30, 2014

  • ESR

    Was curious if there is a concern with the Mayfield Park photography permit policy or if this type of gathering would even apply?

    January 27, 2014

    • TA B.

      No because we are not selling nor taking pictures of other people for monetary gain. If it's too busy there. Laguna Gloria is right next door we will move over there

      January 27, 2014

  • Aussies (.

    Do you have an estimated end time of this meetup? Looking forward to attending my first PAG meeting.

    January 27, 2014

    • TA B.

      Probably will be the 3-4 hours. An hour before to go over different apps. The shoot then about an hour after answering any more questions

      January 27, 2014

  • Francis

    is it free?

    January 26, 2014

    • TA B.

      The only cost will be one or two of the apps are 99 cents, but you don't have to use unless you want too, I will send the names out later this week of the apps we will be trying out that day

      January 26, 2014

    • Francis

      Thank you Tracy !m

    This is such a welcome idea, I get overwhelmed by the sheer number of apps that all claim they're the greatest! Would love to start small with recommendations from people who use them, and opportunity to ask Qs.

  • TA B.

    I will e-mail everyone, which applications we will be trying prior to next sunday. So if you want you can download early!
