Automatic:  An all-purpose default setting most people use.  A quick way to take shots while the camera makes all of the decisions.  
Program:  Like Auto, Program will make all of the exposure decisions but some differences are that the exposure is skewed based on the focal length of the lens in use, the settings are not permanent.
Aperture Priority:  You set the aperture and the camera will adjust the shutter speed to get a proper exposure.
A-Dep:  This mode tries to calculate the nearest and farthest elements in a scene and then calculates the optimum aperture to get them in sharp focus in your picture.
Shutter Priority (S or TV):   You set the shutter speed and the camera will adjust the aperture.
Manual:  You select ALL of the settings manually.
Preset Scene Modes (scene/scn):  —Preset modes where you don’t have to worry about manual settings.  You may find settings such as action/sports, children/baby, landscape, macro, nigh portrait, sunrise, candle light, fireworks, food, monochrome, fish eye, panning, and more.  
Portrait:  Not just for people portrait mode can be used for pets, zoo animals or furniture.  It’s all about a single main subject at a moderate distance away and a background you want out of focus.
Landscape or Scenic:  An overall view.
Sports/Action:  This setting is best for fast moving subjects (children,pets,cars). Allowing you to shoot a burst of several shots.
Macro:  How close the subjects are and how much of the frame they fill.
Night:  Keeps the shutter open for a long time.  Night portrait ads flash.  Night landscape suppresses flash.The purpose is to capture the ambient light (low light).

This is the app that I use to earn money.  Basically you download free apps, open said app for 30 seconds and they give you get points (red in below photo). A caveman can do it.  The points can be exchanged for gift cards and other things.  IMPORTANT! You will need my referral code ——> PZTGXK 

You can also look up reviews on the app.  I personally use it and have made about $25 that was sent to my Paypal.  Points = money! It’s really simple.  You can also delete the apps you download.  Instead of spending so much time on Facebook you could be doing this and earning stuff.  

PLEASE NOTE: You do have to download through the provided link, but it is NOT a virus I swear.  Again, look up reviews if you are skeptical. 

If you have questions please feel free to message me.  -Stel

Where did you get that??!  As a photo-nerd one of my favorite sites to wishlist is Photojojo.  I’m constantly getting questions on how I take my phone pictures and where I got certain gadgets so here are just a few of the items I have: 

The Flash.  It plugs-in to the top of your iPhone like those fancy charms and charges with a USB cord.  It’s very bright and works wonders in creating flawless illuminate selfies.  One of my many tricks to creating the perfect photos for Instagram & blogging product snapshots.

The lenses.  I have all three.  In the beginning I used them A LOT.  The fish eye lens was a hit at parties.  There is a metal ring that comes with them to stick on your phone but be aware because it can interfere with your flash, and doesn’t stick on very long.  

The iPhone tripod spider looking thing.  I got this along with a clicker for makeup stuff and videos.  I took some photos with my kids and that’s about it.  If you have a durable case it won’t fit around that so it needs to be taken off.  

Coffee mugs.  What is there not to like about drinking out of a lens?

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to vend at a pretty rad event called “The Great American Rockabilly Riot.”  It was nothing but pinup dolls and vintage styled gentlemen with classic cars and good ol’ rockabilly music.  In my space I created a photobooth with a leopard backdrop, two soft boxes, and my camera on a tripod with a remote.  Here are a few photos from that awesome night.
