Smile and Say Cheese!
On prom night there will be pictures—lots of pictures. Once you pose for your family and group shots (for what seems like a bazillion hours) you’ll jump in a limo and head off into the sunset, en route to the big event.
The point-and-shoot DSLR pics your parents took will be pretty but they’re posed and likely not the type you want to share with your friends all over social media. So to enhance your already savvy social skills and take your pic-taking game to the next level, The Prom Council did its tech homework and rounded up the most awesome photo apps you might not have heard of, so you can snap like a pro all night!
This app is perfect for snapping fun photobooth-esque shots on the go. It takes four photos in short succession, just like a carnival photo booth! You can create your shots, and then share them on Facebook or via email. The coolest thing about this app is that you can print and snail mail the high-resolution photos on thick cardstock to anywhere in the world for only $2.99!
Your tux vest may be a bright aquamarine, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t stand out in black and white. This iPhone-only app takes black-and-white shots and turns color pics into timeless classics. Six varieties of shading add depth and perspective, just like if you were shooting with a lens. It’s the perfect app for capturing those iconic, epic emotions on prom night.
Want to shine the right light to your date’s sparkly, shimmering gown? Download LensLight, which lets you accentuate the lovely lights of your photos and add elements like leaks, lens flares, and textures.
Get creative with your photos by adding splashes of color to otherwise ordinary photos. Let your bright orange bow tie pop or turn your date’s corsage into the center of attention with this easy-interface app. Choose different brushes to bring out the details you adore.
