The newest issue of Wired (June 2012, AKA 20.06) arrived in the mail this weekend and I immediately scoured the “Our Guide to Photography in the Instagram Age” article (this content is so fresh, its not even up on the Wired web site yet but I’ll link to the article as soon as it does).

What I can do though is provide a list of the favorite camera/photography apps featured in the special section that also included some short reviews of various mobile phones based on the quality of their cameras as well as recommendations for higher-end cameras too. So, here goes:
Recommended by Cole Rise who created several of the most frequently used Instagram filters:
PhotoForge2 ($0.99)
Average Camera Pro ($0.99)
Photosynth (Free)
LensFlare ($0.99)
Recommended by Doctor Popular of Objective Scenes:
Camera+ ($0.99)
AntiCrop ($0.99)
Decim8 ($0.99)
Filterstorm ($3.99)
And just to throw in my two cents, here are a few of my favorites:
PicFrame ($0.99)
Postale ($0.99)
Also mentioned in the article was a company called Taplayer that has created several apps that utilize a Kodak Brownie-like look as well as TtV (through the viewfinder)-style filters.

Go forth and phone-agraph!

It's all about photo apps.

Steply has created a blog of reviews for iPhone photo apps, from functional to frivolous. Its a pretty good resource if you’ve been wanting something besides the stock camera app but don’t know where to start.

Almost every job, project, or hobby nowadays seems to require some photography. Whether its showing a client a new product, selling something on Craig’s List or Ebay or documenting your latest creation, there is going to come a moment where you’re going to need to photograph something. Why not make that photo something others will want to see? Good photography makes your goods sell faster and you look more professional. It doesn’t require much to accomplish it either. Check out the link below from Photojojo for some simple techniques to make your product photos (aka “tabletop photography”) better.

Ona Bags

When I think about office, I also think about “the mobile office”. As working professionals, we all need to carry some part of our office with us. If you’re in law, accounting, or management, chances are you need to carry a laptop. If you’re a photographer, designer, or work in fashion or advertising, chances are you need to carry a camera. The on-going struggle for the girl-on-the-go is to not look like you’re carrying thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment or have to carry a manly camo-print bag that totally clashes with your summer skirt.

That’s where Ona Bags come into the picture. It’s a camera bag ($309) and purse all in one! Made from full-grain leather and specially designed with soft, customizable interior and foam padding. Since most leather handbags start at $200, this upgrade isn’t that far out of range.

Check out this video about the bags and Tracy Foster the owner of the company.
