Android Apps for Professional Photographers

By Steve McFarlane

This is a roundup of Androids photography apps for professionals. While professionals are unlikely to use their phones as their primary camera, they can still use their phones as a training tool, a photo editor and a tool to add special photo effects.

Photography Trainer

This is a must have app for photographers, especially those who want to improve and or are just learning the art. Whether you want to do night, sports, landscapes, portraits or architecture photography, this app guides you with step-by-step instructions on how to setup a camera to take perfect photos. The application helps photographers to truly understand shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings.

The learning progress is further enhanced with the inclusion of dozens of sample photos along with tutorials and tips to help you setup the camera to achieve the same results as the sample photos.  In our opinion $1.99 is a small price to pay for photography training. It is not the same as going to digital photography school, but it does an awesome job for only $1.99.
