      Hello Mac,

      Our best suggestion would be to give it a try! The principles of this tutorial are applicable to iPhones and other mobile devices. That said, while phone cameras continue to get more and more impressive, some of the more advanced and particular settings needed (shutter, aperture, and long-exposure settings for instance) are generally not configurable enough outside of a dedicated DSLR camera.

    When doing the HDR photo editing in PSP replacing the greening blue glow from the bridge lights with a more red lighting effect, you forgot to change the reflection of that light on the bridge tower. I know not necessary to get the effect across to the webinar participants to give them creative ideas. But when I see stuff like this on webinars it leaves me with the feeling of incompleteness.
