I am delighted to promote this brand new course by our friend and regular contributor, Austin Mann. We have featured Mann’s work extensively throughout TheAppWhisperer over the years. He’s a highly accomplished mobile photographer and I can confidently vouch for this new course. It’s designed to ‘unleash your creativity’ and anything that does that, is a huge bonus, in our books.
We’re delighted to publish, Austin Mann’s review of the new Apple iPad Pro from a photographers perspective. Mann is currently working from Iceland on a couple of art commissions and leading a private workshop and he took along the new iPad Pro to integrate it into his mobile workflow. He’s done just that in this article and given us an insight into his new mobile workflow as well as including a few helpful tricks and useful buying advice. Don’t miss this!

“I’m here working on a couple of art commissions and leading a private workshop and I brought the new iPad Pro along to better understand how it can integrate into the mobile photographer workflow. How does it work to ingest, backup, edit, and share images?
The art installation I’m working on is extremely large format (up to 50 ft. wide), so I’m shooting most of this project with the Hasselblad H6D-100c (a 100-megapixel beast). Needless to say, it’s been a great camera to test the speed of this new iPad Pro”.
We’re delighted to republish our good friend, Austin Mann’s camera review of the Apple iPhone Xs today. He took a trip to Zanzibar, the images are gorgeous. In this review, Mann gives his first impressions, his thoughts on the new Image Signal Processor (ISP), vertical panoramas in the iPhone Xs as compared to the iPhone X, perks and perils of computational photography, the updated Portrait Mode and interesting discoveries with the app, Halide’s new technical readout information. Don’t miss this! (foreword by Joanne Carter).
Far and away the most significant camera update in the iPhone Xs is its new Smart HDR capabilities. Powered by the A12 Bionic chip, in the picture above the iPhone Xs is able to capture the dark shadows of the rock while maintaining strong detail in the sunlit clouds.
I’ve never worked with a camera that can balance light like this—not even close.
See this photo below of the sailboat backlit by the sun. With a traditional camera, we’d either lose total detail in the shadows and maintain the highlights of the sky or we’d blow out the highlights in the sky and maintain detail in the shadows of the boat. Previously we couldn’t capture both in one frame (and merging multiple exposures in a fast moving scene like this wouldn’t work, either).

“One of reasons iPhone photography is so fun is simplicity. No need to pick a lens, choose complex settings or anything else… It’s just you, the iPhone, and the beauty around you.
That said, there are thousands of iPhone accessories hitting the market these days claiming to somehow enhance your iPhone photography. Some of the tools really do — others don’t.
I researched quite a bit and assembled this guide to help you skip over the nonsense and learn about the gear that really can help you (or whomever you are buying a gift for) take iPhone photography to the next level”.
