Summer days are getting longer and after a few weeks out of school, your kids are starting to get on your nerves. Need something to keep them occupied? How about photography?



Photographers Varina and Jay Patel share how a few point and shoot cameras paired with GorillaPod Original provided hours of summer fun for their family.  After a few hours of playing around with cameras and GorillaPods in the woods, their kids learned quite a bit about photography. From self-timer to macro shots, they were able to express themselves and share their parents’ passion. Happy kids enjoying your favorite hobby—now that’s a win-win!

Read the entire article and learn how you can recreate the experience at home with your family here. And for some quick tips on how to explain photography basics to your kids, check out this DIY guide, also by Jay and Varina.

 

How to Shoot Photos of Fireworks with Your iPhone

By | Gorillamobile, Gorillapod, iPhone, Photography, time-lapse photography | 2 Comments

With Independence Day upon us, I thought it only proper to give a quick tutorial about the how to best capture the fireworks displays that will be shooting up all over the USA. You don’t want to miss the shot because you’re fumbling with your iPhone, right?

Fire at Night

So here we go …

1. Don’t forget a tripod!!! Bust out your iPhone + GorillaMobile or GorillaPod and position it appropriately to capture the action. Watch out for trees, buildings and other spectators who might block your shot.

2.  Turn off the flash! 

3. Use out our free camera app Frame X Frame.  Choose the Time Lapse setting. We’d set it to take 1000 shots at 2 second intervals to capture the most of the show as possible. Set yourself up for success, which means lots and lots of shots. Sit back, enjoy the show and let Frame X Frame do all the work for you!

4. Use a self-timer (also a feature on Frame X Frame) to avoid camera shake when you hit the shutter button.

5. Test out long exposures. An app like SlowShutter will do the trick.
