The Guardian’s Camera Club is a nice sideline they’ve been developing for a while now. Realising that part of the appeal of looking at great photos is learning from them they give tips and advice, sometimes explicitly in portfolio reviews but also sneaking them into unexpected places.
I downloaded their Eyewitness app for the iPad the other day which, alongside reasonably priced premium content, has a Photo A Day from the news. Clicking on the caption box flips it to a Pro Tip in plain language with the camera settings if available. It’s a lovely way to start thinking more analytically about image making and understanding why that photo makes you go “Ooh!”
Here’s a few screenshots.
If you have an iPad I highly recommend this app. Here’s the iTunes link.
