Hello Fellow Photographers! Some of you have heard me talk about the Filmborn App in the past. It is my go to photo editing app for my iPhone. You can use the app to actually shoot photographs as well. It was originally designed to teach you how to use film and has the manual feature of a film camera right on your phone. There is also some Pacific Northwest pride tied up in this since they were created right out of Seattle in my home state Washington.
This app has what we my call “filters” which mimic a film quality. I am such a huge fan because I still shoot on film and am in love with the quality and tonal range that film can hold, especially when it comes to black and white. Filmborn makes this accessible on your phone with your digital photographs.
My go to is always HP5 for black and white since that is what I primarily shoot within my film camera. Recently I keep coming back to Fujifilm 800Z for the rich blush tones. Below I created quick tutorial on making an edit within the app so you can see what it has done for some of my photos.
Stay tuned for additional editing tips including how to change the size, crop, and shoot within the app. If you really get into it and are as much of a fan as I am, ask to join the Facebook Filmborn community.
Enjoy! Let me know if you try it out and share some of your edits on Instagram by tagging me @bethanymccamish.
