Photo Soft Box Pro HD, which I’ve reviewed on my Lifestyle Technology blog, just received a great update with features requested by current users, including:
- You can now use your own shapes as diffusers!
- Also on our new site we will have a new FREE downloadable shape a week.
- Flip and Mirror of shapes. This comes in handy if you made your own shape with text and you are reflecting it off something.
- You can turn on and off the black around a shape.
- More shapes! What is an update without more shapes to use as diffusers.
Very cool that you can use any image from your Photo Roll as a source soft box image. Opens up the possibilities.
One thing about being into photography; you quickly realize that there’s a lot to learn from other photographers.
A subject that’s always challenged me has been the concept of making light work for me rather than forcing me to adapt to the demands of the light sources.
Learning from other photographers through their lighting diagrams has helped me better understand how a particular tool (reflector, barn doors, snoot, etc) should be used to get a specific result.
And recently, I found some things that let me work through the thinking exercise needed to create better-lit images.

It must be update day for the iOS photo app developers. Not only did FX Photo Studio HD get an update to day, so did Camera+
This is a very cool camera app for iPhone, though you can use it on the iPad for image editing and sharing. One of the neatest features on the iPhone is the ability to specify the zone where the light meter will read, separate from the zone where the auto-focus will read.
Here’s what’s new (from the developers):
Camera+ 2.1: Performance, stability, and robustness, oh my!
For Camera+ 2.0, we added over 50 awesome, new features]. For version 2.1, we’ve switched gears and worked hard to make the overall experience of using the app much more pleasurable. We made a whole bunch of speed improvements so everything feels zippier. We fixed many niggling bugs so the app now has a much more solid feel to it. And we added many little features and user interface improvements so that it’s much more intuitive and more of a delight to use.
