Krome Photos Editors Offer iPhone Photography Tips to Capture Memories This Holiday Season
San Francisco, California
Krome Photos, makers of the iOS app that delivers images directly to pro photo editors, offers iPhone photography tips to capture precious memories as they occur this holiday season.
"iPhones are ubiquitous and will be the portable camera of choice this holiday season," comments Eduardo Llach, CEO and founder of Krome Photos. "Capturing special holiday memories is a real art but anyone can do it, especially when using the Krome Photos app to deliver images to expert retouchers who can clean up the technical issues associated with taking photos on the go."
Krome's photo editors offer these tips for taking photos at events this holiday season:
Think like a photojournalist. Make yourself invisible to catch people in the act of talking with other guests or snap happy guests as they enjoy a meal. Krome editors can help make your guests look better by smoothing out skin tones or whitening eyes and teeth during the editing process.
Set the scene. Capture a few images that frame up the location like a long shot of the dining room before guests are invited to be seated, or the exterior of the house decorated for the holidays. Ask Krome editors to fix exposure on these types of wide shots if the outdoor sun or candlelight is not just perfect.
Make the group shot interesting. The group line up is nice but what about having everyone doing something interesting even if it's pointing at the decorated tree, looking down in a circle while shooting from the floor up, doing a New Year's line dance, jumping at the same time, holding props like candy canes or noise makers, or sitting on colorful chairs. Colorful props can be fun and a Krome photo can amplify the creative effect by enhancing specific colors, upon request.
Details do matter. It's great to get the group shot but don't forget to document the meal, the special name cards or that beautiful bunch of garland that was gathered from the garden. Krome can help focus in on a subject during the process by blurring the background, cropping a bigger image or removing unwanted distractions.
Krome Photos is a completely new class of mobile offering and the only service available for professional retouching via the iPhone. The Krome app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store onto your phone. Its elegance comes from the fact that it simply connects your important mobile phone photos directly to real human retouching professionals with just a tap of the screen. Prices start as low as 30 cents for simple enhancements and range to $4.99 for more advanced retouching or image editing. To make it easy for anyone to give Krome a try, the company is offering $10 in free credit for first time users. Their pros can fix the composition and skin tones in your image, remove someone or something in the background that is distracting, fix or even artistically enhance certain colors, and more, all so you can ensure the best image before going to print your holiday cards or post holiday memories. All enhanced or retouched images are backed up online and can be seamlessly downloaded for later use.
