MOBILE APPS YOU NEED FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS
By far my FAVORITE app. I don’t know about you, but I am so thankful to live in a digital age. How did anyone ever keep track of all their miles by hand?! Bye felicia. I definitely do not have time for that.
MileIQ has made my life ten times easier by tracking where and when I am headed somewhere. I can then log it later on as a personal or business ride and categorize specifically what type of drive it was! It even creates spreadsheets that I can send over to my accountant. Easy peasy.
If you have ever wondered how I get my photos into pretty layouts on white backgrounds for my instagram stories this is it! I don’t exactly like how small it displays the photos but it works well to tell a story in a cohesive and creative format!
This is similar to Unfold but is more type based. There are tons of different font options to create motivational quotes or share information with your audience/friends. You can use your own photos or ones they provide. As a photographer I try to display my own work! It’s just one more way to get your images seen.
Perfect for editing images on your phone. You can clone out distracting elements in your photos with pretty accurate success. I do get a little frustrated at times with its ability to blend things out smoothly. This app allows you to adjust the color temperature of your images, exposure and more. It might take a little bit of experimenting if you aren’t familiar with some basic photography terms!
Okay, this might actually be tied with MileIQ as my favorite and definitely most-used app. Plannoly allows me to schedule my instagram posts in advance and organize the layout of my images! Because my work can have a moody aesthetic at times, I like to post brighter images next to darker ones. I also try to visually place close up images next to wide shots to create even more space.
Because I often come up with captions based off how I am feeling that day and what is relevant to me in the moment I don’t always use this app to plan super far in advance. I know some people will plan out a months worth of content where they can then set a specific time and day to post.
