Would you like to learn to take better photos with your iPhone or SLR? Take a look at the Photography Assignment Generator App, a great tool for learning more about the rules of composition, creative shooting techniques, photographing people, landscape and nature. This app can also help you keep your creative momentum flowing with scavenger hunt assignments that give you ideas of things to find with your camera. There are separate versions for SLR shooters (iPhone and iPad) and iPhoneographers and there's even a free demo version, so you can try before you buy. 

It always seems to be a good time to peel off a few layers of one's digital lifestyle, they tend to add up so fast, don't they? This summer camp made me smile with its promise:

 

to create an atmosphere for personal freedom, creative thinking, liberation from technology, and a space from the working world where we can all once again be… human. Friendships at camp are based on real-life connections, and the most important status we’ll update is our happiness

PicsPlay Pro is a flexible photo editor with pro-level features, beautiful filters and clever tools. A Swiss Army knife of mobile photography, PicsPlay Pro is chock full of features. My personal favourites are the FX filters Hollywood 1 and Hollywood 2 - they are subtle and absolutely beautiful! 

Lately I've been experimenting with watercolour painting on my iPad. Creating a series of designs for fabrics, wallpaper and gift wrap. In the process, I discovered that Tayasui Sketches is a lovely and intuitive app for sketching, painting and drawing. I love the expressive watercolour brush, the washes and edge bleed. You can follow my project on my personal portfolio site Kate England.
