5 Apps Every Photographer Needs Today!


5 Apps Every Photographer Needs. In the past, photographers could not use the simple device on their phone to benefit their photographic work. As Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and many more social media platforms work to engage with our target audience and share our work, there are some other handy apps that every photographer should look into using.


5 Apps Every Photographer Needs


  1. Hyperfocal DOF


Hyperfocal distance is a great concept for photographers to know, but can be a bit difficult to calculate on your own. The Hyperfocal DOF app does all the hard calculating work for you. It allows you to select the camera you’re using, put in your focal length and aperture used, then click “Calculate Hyperfocal” and wait! It only takes seconds until the app gives you the closest distance your lens can be focused while every little detail is kept sharp. Apps like Hyperfocal DOF saves a lot of time for when you have a busy day full of photoshoots! For more information on this app, click here!


  1. Magic Hour


For us photographers that love to photograph during golden hour, this app will definitely be a great benefit! The Magic Hour app will tell you when and how long golden hour will be in your current location. It also gives you information about the weather in your location and the times of sunrise and sunset. If you choose to use the notification function, you’ll be notified before magic hour starts! For more information on this app, click here!

I believe educators should aid students in becoming life-long learners, where they are taught how to utilize resources and research strategies to facilitate problem solving. One of my favorite ways to teach is by utilizing technology in hands-on learning environments. The following resources are ones I have shared with my students at Northern Arizona University. They are great for both professional and hobby photographers alike. Happy shooting!

Words can not express how thankful and happy we are that we chose Monica to capture our perfect day. She made us feel both comfortable and confident in the whole process. She has this ease that makes you feel you’ve known her for years. Her kindness, personality, and professionalism was beyond what we could have hoped for. Her communication and organization was so impressive as well (I am far from organized)! Our photos are AMAZING, they are perfect. We wish we could do it all over again, and again. Seriously, book her right now! Best choice we could have made, and she helped make our day so wonderfully memorable and way less stressful.
