iPhone Photography Apps 2023

There are several apps that I use on my iPhone to help support my photography. Here is a quick list of my favorites from most important to least:

  • Lumy – Sunrise, Sunset, and Golden Hour times. I keep their complication front and center on my Apple Watch.
  • GeoTag Photos Pro 2 – It records your locations while you’re out and about shooting. I can then tag my photos with their location after I load them in Lightroom.
  • PhotoPills – Complicated app that I am just learning. Currently, I use the planning feature to know where the sun, moon or Milky Way will be in relation to a future photo spot. SnapSeed – My mobile photo editing app of choice.
  • SnapBridge – Nikon app that I used to move photos directly to my phone when I am excited and can’t wait until I get home to see/post them.
  • Lightroom Mobile – Lets me access my photos that I have in the Adobe Cloud.
  • Lumos – A quick sun / moon locater that is much simpler than PhotoPills. I use it often as a quick check of where the sun will rise or set.

I took this photograph Friday on the Cedar Knoll Trail near Rimrock, Arizona. It may have been our last sunny day. I used a Nikon Z5 camera using a NIKKOR Z 24-70mm ƒ/2.8 S lens (1/125 sec at ƒ/4.0, ISO 100, 62mm). I edited the image in Adobe Lightroom.
