Weekly photo contest: Transit!

Odds are you've been on a train, plane, bus, or some other kind of transit before. For many of us, it's a daily part of how we get from point A to point B. Transit systems and the people that use them can make for amazing photographs as well. So your task this week is to grab an amazing shot with the subject being some kind of public transit. Perhaps it's an interesting person you met on the subway, or a dark tunnel with a train emerging. The choice is yours, just be sure you submit your best work!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, June 24th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

How to take a photo using the volume up button with your iPhone or iPad

Apple makes it easy to take a photo with your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad simply by tapping the big, round shutter button right on the screen. If you're trying to take a photo one-handed, however, or even just depending on your position, even that big, round button can be out of reach. Luckily, Apple also lets you activate the shutter and take a picture with the volume up button.

Weekly photo contest: Clouds!

When shooting a photo outside, we quickly realize how important of a role the sky plays in how our picture turns out. Clouds are a huge part of that landscape and sometimes their presence can make or break a great photo opportunity. That's your task this week! Find a photo that you've taken — or snap a new one — that just wouldn't be the same without clouds in the sky.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, June 17th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

How to use your Photo Stream as the screen saver on your Apple TV

If you own an iPhone and an Apple TV, it's easy to wirelessly beam your photos to the big screen using AirPlay. You can also use your own Photo Stream photos as your screen saver instead of the stock photos that come on your Apple TV. The best part is that as you take photos, they'll automatically update and you'll always have new and fresh photos for people to see!

How to take panoramas with your iPhone

Panorama mode on the iPhone Camera lets you capture much wider, much higher megapixel photos than are otherwise possible with the built in iSight lens. By taking a video-like stream of successive frames, the iPhone can literally match and stitch together a single photo greater than the sum of its parts. First introduced with iOS 6 and the iPhone 4, the current version can even make use of Apple's powerful image signal processor (ISP) to dynamically expose the entire image and make it look great from light to dark. Here's how it works!
