Rick Sammon’s 24/7 Photo Buffet App Review

Mobile Monday is a weekly CanvasPop blog series featuring reviews on some of the coolest mobile photography apps available. Check back on Mondays for a new review!

There’s a plethora of photo editing apps available for your mobile device, but what about apps that actually help you improve your photography skills? We’ve located a great app, that will provide you with amazing photography tips on the go. Rick Sammon’s 24/7 Photo Buffet by Personal Concepts has a tagline that describes itself perfectly — “an expert photographer in your pocket“.  Developed by a photographer who has over 30 years experience, and has been aptly nicknames “The Godfather”, the app is a training aid that offers photographic advice, tips, and techniques.

The content contained in the app has been conveniently divided into five major sections: Seeing, Making, Editing, Tips, and Help. In the Help tab, there is a powerful search function that allows you to quickly locate the exact advice you are looking for. Browse through the sections to find tips and tricks on lenses, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, photographing nighttime subjects, and capturing wildlife to name a few! The content is constantly being updated with new articles, tips, movies and photos. One of our favorite features is the Notes page, which allows you to capture or e-mail any of the tips or tricks you want to remember the most. We really love how easy the developers have made it to navigate and use this app.

Buy this app at the iTunes store for a charge of only $1.99. It is compatible with your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad and requires iOS 3.2.2 or later.
