I know this is a Apple only app and for that I apologize. There will be a few android and Pixel posts in the future! However, if you are not an iPhone user, you might still find some of these basic functions offered in the app useful information, especially if you are new to photography.
Filmborn aims to simulate the basic functions offered in film cameras. The app celebrates the rich and deep tonal ranges film has by offering “filters” to shoot in which mimic certain film qualities. In addition to this, it offers 3 lens options, multiple sizing options, a histogram, and my favorite: manual focus! (Plus a few other gems)
If this all sounds a bit overwhelming right now, download the app and try it with edits first! Sometimes, I do not always shoot in the app, but use it add that finishing touch to my images. For a video tutorial on this click here.
No, I am not sponsored (I wish!), simply a fan. I started my photography journey in film and have a deep appreciation for anything aims to do more than a snapchat filter. This app allows you to learn basic camera functions and have a small taste of the science behind the art of photography.
Accessibility to photography is no longer an issue. However, knowing the controls and options for creativity within the medium seems to go by the wayside- especially when it comes to phone photography. Filmborn offers a chance for your phone photos to have character and be taken more seriously in a world where phone photography still holds a stigma of not being “professional” or up to par as an art form.
Here is a video I made that shows you how to shoot in the Filmborn App. We start with a mini session at home with my house plant to go over basic functions, I suggest you do the same with me! Then we take the app out in the field to shoot in nature. Lastly I pair the app with some of my Moment lenses. Enjoy!
