IPhone App mixologyThe iPhone has really changed my life and how I think about photographing everyday things! Having my phone with me at all times has helped me to capture more random, fun phtoos of my daily life. Lately I've been experimenting with different iPhone apps and combining filters. Here are a few favorite combinations... Enjoy! 

CAMERA BAG + INSTAGRAMCamera Bag + Instagram / Camera Bag is one of the first iPhone Apps I ever purchased. It's great for getting contrasty colors and there is a cool light flare filter in there too. 

HIPSTAMATIC + INSTAGRAMHipstamatic + Instagram / Hipstamatic was my favorite app for a long time. The effects on Hipstamatic are pretty severe, so sometimes I run photos through a milder instagram app to give them a more subtle look. 

CAMERA BAG + PHONTOCamera Bag + Phonto / I love Phonto for adding text to my photos. It has a good, simple lineup of fonts that are easy to use in any color or size. This flare effect is my favorite Camera Bag filter. 

INSTAGRAM + SKETCH BOOK MOBILEInstagram + Sketch Book Mobile / I use this app with my iPhone + iPad. It's a fun and easy way to add handwriting to a photo! 

HIPSTAMATIC DISPOSABLE + INSTAGRAMHipstamatic Disposable + Instagram / I love playing witht he Hipstamatic Disposable App. The quirk of this app is that you have to take 24 photos before viewing your film. It's a fun way to pretend you are using a toy camera and I like the filters even more than the original Hipstamatic App. 

INSTAGRAM + PHONTOInstagram + Phonto / Again, when you want to add a clean line of text to a photo this app is perfect! I typed a little bit on this Instagram photo and love the look! 

Instagram + picture frames HDInstagram + Picture Frames HD / There are lots of apps out there that allow you to create dyptics or collages with your iPhone photos. These are really fun to play with, especially with previously edited photos from other apps. 

INSTAGRAM + PICTURE SHOWInstagram + Picture Show / This combines my two favorite iPhone apps. I love Picture Show because it's super versitile and Instagram has some of the best frames out there.  

I hope this little guide has inspired you to try combining some of your favorite iPhone apps to create new looks for your photos. What are your favorite combinations? xoxo, elsie
