    Looking good, Justin. I like the pink paisley.

    I've found that for iPhone pics I get the best results either inside a place that has a good amount of natural light flooding in or outside in the shade - but either way direct sunlight or only fluorescent lighting is a killer of hopes and dreams.

    Did the guy sitting in front of you give you weird looks when you were taking pictures of yourself?

    I totally agree. I've been attempting to take different angles as well as locations. I'm pleasantly happy with the lighting in this pic. Just gotta up that game now


    Lol I'm discrete. Plus dude is deep in his literature

    I apologize. I put the thumbs up before reading your request. Again, I apologize. You are one of the top five best dressed men I've seen.

    PSA for especially the new/infrequent posters: Spoiler tags, use them.

    We don't need to see the same pics again that were posted two posts up, and although Tira and Victor are both crushing it, we got it the first time. Understandable if you want to choose one shot to leave unspoilered because your commentary is specifically about something in that shot, or you're quoting something from many pages ago, but otherwise it helps to keep the thread clean and mobile/scroll-friendly.

    And for the umpteenth time, don't touch the god dang thermostat! :censored:

    Don't look now, Victor, but I think he's coming on to you.

    The other thing I'm finding helps a ton, and it may not be on all iOS versions, is tapping the area of the screen that is the brightest element/most blown out by over-lighting (often the shirt), which darkens the whole image for that shot. You can even adjust the light level on the pic by sliding the little sun up and down before you take it. I always find it's easier to lighten up a pic afterwards than darken it.

    The app Camera+ is extremely powerful and can adjust white balance and focus point on the fly through a grid-based system. It also has some rather snazzy filters for different contexts. I think it's about $4, but it is well worth it.

    I don't know much about photography (iPhone or otherwise), but is this app better than VSCO?

    No idea, I hadn't heard of the latter. Consider that one is free and the other is $4, it would not hurt to try both. Considering the amount we spend on neckties, it seems trivial to compare both if it would enhance train pics...
