PadGadget PhotoBooth: iPad Photography Essentials

photoipadPhotography, both with my iDevices and my DSLR, is a hobby that I am passionate about. I make it a point to find and explore awesome photography apps and accessories for the iPad, and over the past two years I have shared many of those with PadGadget readers.

I plan to continue to share my favorite accessories and apps, in the form of a new photography series that I will post on a regular basis. Every week I will discuss an app, an accessory, a photo tip, or something else picture related.

I hope this series will help you find new apps that will allow you to improve your iPad photography or incorporate it into your photography workflow. I’m sure there will be a few amazing accessories to discover too!

To kick things off, I’ve decided to share some of my past photography posts, which have a lot of information on the best photo apps that you can get in the App Store.

First, let me point out a few of my favorite apps. For editing photos on both my iPad and my iPad mini, I enjoy Snapseed, which went free after Google acquired the company. I find myself using PhotoToaster quite often as well.


Professionals might want to check out a list of apps that I wrote up last year, and my list of top photo sharing apps contains a whole slew of suggestions. For sharing photos, make sure to check out PhotoSync and this list of apps that offer ways to upload and share your photos with friends and family.

There are also quite a few fun apps out there. Photobooth style apps are always a blast, especially for parties. Break out the iPad at your next get together and you’ll have memories that will last a lifetime.


Though the iPad is not an obvious choice for photography, it can be used in so many fantastic and fun ways that you might not have considered.

I don’t want to spoil everything all at once, so I’ll be sharing new iPad photography tips, tricks, and accessories each and every week. If you’re a photography enthusiast like I am, make sure to check back in on a regular basis to get a rundown on must have photography tools for the iPad.
