iPhone 6/+ and iOS 8 Tips From Austin Mann – Photographer From The Icelandic Adventure

Many thanks to my friend Austin Mann, the photographer behind the iPhone 6/Icelandic trip (see here), who has allowed me to published some tips of his from behind the scenes of that video.  We have also included a wonderful video with Austin talking about iPhone mounts – don’t miss this.

We hope to publish more of Austin’s tips very soon…

  • “Tip #1 Camera Mode jump: Before iOS 8, you had to swipe between camera modes one by one… now you can actually tap the mode and skip (for instance, you can skip directly from Photo mode all the way to Time-lapse mode by tapping on the far left of the screen.)  This is way faster than sliding over twice… really nice when a shot is fleeting and you need switch modes as quickly as possible.
  • Tip #2 Time-lapse AE/AF Lock: Time-lapse mode is super fun and easy to just set up and go. It auto-exposes, auto-focus and auto-assembles everything. I just posted this time-lapse on Instagram a few nights ago.
  • One quick tip for time-lapse mode is to use AE/AF lock. This will lock the exposure and the focus on whatever area you “touch and hold” BEFORE you start the time-lapse. This will prevent your camera from searching for a focus point throughout the time-lapse and it will also lock the exposure settings… so it works great to create “fade-to-black” time-lapse at sunset because the camera won’t redjust lighting settings as the light fades”.

Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built.

Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine.
