Using Editing Apps With Smartphone Photography

Featured

Since becoming a Verizon Wireless Influencer and Brand Ambassador in the #VZWBuzz Lifestyle Program,  I have been afforded many the opportunity to test numerous smartphones.  I am currently testing a Verizon Droid Turbo and also shooting images with an iPhone6 as well this summer.

Today on the #VZWBuzz weekly chat we will be discussing Smartphone Photography.

Smartphone Photography is the best part of testing any of the smartphones that have come my way over the  years.

I am a Content Creator, Social Media Director, Influencer, Brand Strategist and Digital Correspondent and I have a smartphone or two in my hands almost all the time.

My photography creativity has been spawned because of the fantastic apps that are available to edit your images in ways you could never dream of before.

The favorite apps for editing my smartphone photos are Snapseed, Aviary, PS Express, Instagram and Adobe Lightroom. There are times that I will use all of them to edit a particular photo because of the many filters available in each app.

The following are some smartphone images that have been edited by one or more of the editing apps mentioned above.

In July 2011,  Chef Jennifer DePalma competed on Bravo Tv’s  hit new series 

 Rocco’s Dinner Party     http://www.bravotv.com/roccos-dinner-party  

 Chosen the Winner!

 She is the first woman to win this Distinctive Honor.  Along with bragging rights  she received the Grand Prize of $20,000.00!  

The goal  being to see who would throw the best dinner party for Celebrity Author and  Chef  Rocco DiSpirito and his celebrity guests.   http://amzn.to/ptFWx3 Now EatThis9/27/11

Three  Chefs compete for the honor to be 1 of 2  Chefs chosen to cook for Rocco’s Themed Dinner Party for that particular evening by preparing and presenting their signature dish for Rocco to taste.

Rocco DiSpirito loved Chef Jen’s Signature dish Chicken Amore  so much he chose it as the winner of the signature dish challenge. Since then fans around the world have been asking for her Chicken Amore recipe!

The winner of the signature dish challenge then has the opportunity to choose 1 of three of Rocco’s dining rooms to serve their dinner party as well.

The two Chefs then meet with Celebrity Event Producer Jes Gordon  http://jesgordon.com/   and author of  “Party Like a Rock Star”   http://amzn.to/PRTLKRCKSTR     to discuss and plan the décor for their chosen dining room.  Jes Gordon then designs  the chosen dining room based on the input of the  chef.   Jes’s  Blog also gives further design details  of each dinner party.   http://www.bravotv.com/roccos-dinner-party/season-1/blogs/jes-gordon/finding-your-focal-point

Jen chose the Terrace Room for her dinner party and had it decorated in a South Beach theme with white sofas, a tented dining table, tiki torches – a real Miami vibe.   When everyone walked in Jen’s party, they fell so in love with the stylish Miami-South Beach décor.  http://www.bravotv.com/roccos-dinner-party/season-1/blogs/rocco-dispirito/anything-for-jeff-ross?page=0,4  

Jen started out with her Coco Loco Spritzer, made with vodka and coconut water.  Jen’s Pork Tenderloin was a good choice.   “But the best dish of the night was what she prepared to accommodate Jeff:  Matzoh Brei.  This traditional Passover dish is an omelet-like mixture of eggs and pieces of matzoh fried together. You can put other ingredients in it, like vegetables. It’s open to interpretation, and Jen’s was as Jeff put it: “Matzoh brei’s greatest moment!” It can be fattening too, but Jen brought hers in at 190 calories and 8 grams of fat.”  http://www.bravotv.com/roccos-dinner-party/season-1/blogs/rocco-dispirito/anything-for-jeff-ross?page=0,4
