If you follow us on Instagram, you’re probably aware that I’ve been galavanting around Los Angeles for the past week attending LA Fashion Week shows, enjoying the sun, and of course, guzzling down West Coast coffee!
Can you believe I took that video footage only using my phone?! It was great to be able to take my phone with me everywhere and capture pictures and videos without having to lug around my equipment! I wanted to share my three favorite iPhone 5s features that really came in handy while I was traveling:
1. True Tone Flash – I was able to capture vibrant colors on the runway as well as in the dressing room with the new True Tone flash feature! The feature determines just the right balance of ambient light versus flash for more natural-looking skin tones. The result is a beautiful crisp shot with more true-to-life colors.
2. Camera App + Filters – Being quick was key while at the show! With the built-in camera and filters, I could easily switch between formats including— video, photo, square and panorama—with just a quick swipe. There are eight Apple-designed filters that can be seen live before you even take the shot. If you want to change it later, no problem.
3. iCloud Photo Sharing – This is how Amity and I were able to constantly keep in touch! With a shared stream, we were able to instantly post photos and videos and share comments. This feature really came in handy for us when we needed to decide what to post to Instagram 🙂
