This iPhone app is a treasure trove of photo filters

You'll still find plenty that make your iPhone photography look overdone and a bit naff. But there are plenty that are subtle enough to be largely undetectable while adding a pop of…

I tried an online iPhone photography class and stepped up my photo game

I love taking photos. Before the iPhone, I always had a point-and-shoot camera handy, and even dabbled in DSLR photography.

Striking “lost” bird species found and featured in first-known photo

No-one has seen the Yellow-crested Helmetshrike for about 20 years. That changed when researchers embarked on a six-week expedition in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and captured the dramatic-looking yellow-topped bird in its first-known photo.With nearly 70% of the planet's wildlife populations having declined since the 1970s, there are not often stories worth cheering for when it comes to global animal welfare. But a new find in the remote Itombwe Massif in the Congo is certainly good news for bird enthusiasts and…

I used to teach classes at the Apple Store and here’s why everyone should try a Today at Apple Photo Tour at least once

It's also a role with photography at its heart — and an excellent…
