Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Help Getting Accepted into Art Shows - Part 4

No, I haven't gone over to the dark side and still recommend using a real camera to photograph your artwork or booth for jurying. But I have been investigating getting better quality pictures from my iphone camera. And by better quality, I don't mean improved composition. I mean technically improved pictures with less blurriness (sharper) and better exposure.

My next article consists of tips on how to take better pictures with your cell phone.

To see the examples of my art photography or improved jury images. Also I do free image evaluations and can also make suggestions on streamlining your artist statement.

At any time, artists can call me with questions 412-401-8100

Do you still have the name of the app that lets you take manual control of the cell phone camera?

Hi Robert. It's "pureshot". Did I forget to include it in the article?

It wasn't in the article. BTW, the built-in volume controls on the side of my 5s iPhone also function as a shutter release which I find easier to use than the screen released.

Ya know... one of the things, one might try, to get "sharper" photos with a Cell Phone, is mounting the Phone on a steady surface... preferable a Tri-Pod and Pair it with one of those blue tooth "Selfie" sticks, and using the trigger on the selfie handle to "take" the picture.  Rock Steady - Less Vibration = Sharper Image!  

Also, I just wanted to share another app, that I use on my iPhone 7+ :  " Camera 9.1 " you can check it out @ the  It's pretty cool!  Can be used in Full Manual or several Automatic modes and you can save images as *.jpg, *.tiff, RAW/Jpeg or separate Raw and Jpg at the same time.  I'd say worth a look.
