If you look at my Instagram account, you’ll clearly see a similarity to a majority of my shots: they usually feature some straight lines, generally the line of the horizon. I’m kind of obsessed with straight lines, because, well, I guess I’m just OCD like that.

If your mobile photography is running out of inspiration, you might want to take a look at Mission: Pic, a half game, half social network iPhone app that adds a layer of fun to your iPhone photography, while fueling your creativity in the process.

Bustio is a new app released in the App Store that will turn your burst photos into animated GIFs or videos, which you can then save to your Camera Roll or share with others via several channels.
The concept is pretty simple. After taking a series of photos in burst mode with your iPhone camera, simply launch Burstio, and select the burst of photos you want to use. From there you have the option to adjust the playback speed from slow, to normal, to fast. Then hit the export button to convert the burst photos into an HD video or an animated GIF. Read More

I’ve been enamored by the Lytro since I first heard about it in 2012.
