By John Rouda
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
A Soft Box application for your iPad with color filters. Be sure to turn your screen brightness up before using this app. This app will turn your iPad into a lighting system used for photo shoots. perfect for the photographer that has their iPad with them to show their portfolio.
** This app does NOT take pictures. Use your iPhone or a professional camera to take the photos.
I'm going to use this as a mini light box for my visually impaired students. With a regular light box you can put different objects on top to get your student to focus on them. What I like about this app is that you don't need to always have your larger light box out to use for instruction. You can turn this on, using the color backdrop you want to use for your student, the. Put objects on top that you want them to look at and interact with. I think this app is pretty cool.
Nice secondary light source, especially if you use tripod as iPads are not that bright.
Might be useful as light source from underneath if it could be set to allow something to be placed on the iPad. I tried to take a picture of a ring and it kept going to the menu whenever I put the ring on the iPad. (Also, my camera kept picking up moire interference pattern. )
Otherwise, a very interesting application. I've used it with two iPads to light from two angles.
Not bad for being free
This free app is actually pretty cool, turning you iPad into a small light source. You won't be able to use it for a main light source, but for adding reflections, or a fill light for close ups it works pretty dang good. I gave it 3 stars because of the lack of options to control the light within the app. If you want to adjust the brightness you'll have to go through the system preferences. If you have multiple iPads I'd imagine you could get some interesting lighting setups.
