Everything is explained in real life terms with beautiful large sample images. No drawn out techie terms just straight forward answers from award winning wedding and portrait photographer Mark Stagi. If you love taking photos of your kids, are a amateur photographer or a professional looking for some portrait ideas this is the perfect app for you. Read through some real life scenarios along with high resolution images to learn how to take better portraits. Camera settings and stories about each shoot are included as well as a notes section for you to write down some notes as you read along.

    cool, thanks.


    Now if we can just get a photography class as a high school requirement!


    I'm in few pics because the moment you ask a stranger to shoot one, they cut off your feet, there's a ton of blank sky over your head, its crooked, off center, etc [​IMG]

    I purchased the wedding photography app for my iPhone when it was first introduced and later purchased the iPad edition.
    Why is the iPad edition lacking compared to the iPhone version? I'm surprised it is so sparse in comparison.
    Otherwise, nice work! Well thought out and beautiful photos with easy to read text.
    (Just wish there was more.)

    Hi braddick,

    Thanks for your feedback. We are working on some updates to the wedding photography app to add more content and features to both iPad and iPhone versions. Our long term goal for the photo apps we have is to keep adding content to them and features that will be beneficial to help you learn that photo genre more. Our updates for these apps will be free so everyone that gets the apps now at the early stages will benefit as the prices increases down the line.

    Thanks,
    Mark @ AppEzzy

    Please build universal apps

    Hi AppEzzy,

    Please, please, I beg please build universal apps, rather than creating separate iPhone and iPad applications.

    I understand from your perspective that the programming is mostly a separate effort between the two versions.

    But to your end users, your ultimate fans, the content is the content regardless of which Apple device we use to access it. I would like to buy your app once and no worry which device I will carry with me (iPad or just iPhone) when I am shooting my next portraits.

    Whatever revenue you lose with the users who do cave in to purchase both versions, I think you will make up with the happy customers who buy one version and find that it works on their other iOS device!

    I can honestly say that seeing a universal app is definitely a factor in my App Store purchasing decisions.


    Thanks,
    Mark
