The iPad for Photographers: Master the Newest Tool in Your Camera Bag

Book Description

The iPad Has Earned a Place in Your Camera Bag!
Apple's popular iPad tablet is an incredibly useful tool for photographers on the go. Instead of hauling a laptop on the road or to a photo shoot, you can tuck the lightweight iPad in your camera bag and take advantage of its large screen, third-party apps, and online access to effectively complete and share your work.

Novice to pro shooters will discover everything that the iPad has to offer with simple step-by-step instructions and real-world advice for:

  • Importing and copying photos from memory cards using the iPad Camera Connection Kit, then uploading and backing up to iCloud Photo Stream or Dropbox.

  • Organizing and rating images and assigning tags in the field, and integrating them later with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom on your computer.

  • Editing photos with Photogene, Snapseed, and other image adjustment tools.

  • Editing video clips in iMovie, creating slideshows, rough cuts, and more.

  • Using portfolio software to create and deliver impressive iPad presentations for prospective clients.

  • Photographers will learn other clever uses for iPads including triggering the camera shutter remotely, using the screen as a fill flash, calculating depth of field, tracking outdoor light conditions, storing camera manuals as PDFs for quick reference, and other handy at-your-fingertip resources to complement your particular shooting style.

    A bonus online chapter with additional coverage for the new iPad – including iPhoto and Photoshop Touch apps – is included with purchase.

    The iPad is a powerful photography tool and this guide will help every photographer take advantages of its full capabilities!
