The iPad Has Earned a Place in Your Camera Bag!
Apple's popular iPad tablet is an incredibly useful tool for photographers on the go. Instead of hauling a laptop on the road or to a photo shoot, you can tuck the lightweight iPad in your camera bag and take advantage of its large screen, third-party apps, and online access to effectively complete and share your work.

Novice to pro shooters will discover everything that the iPad has to offer with simple step-by-step instructions and real-world advice for:
  • Importing and copying photos from memory cards using the iPad Camera Connection Kit, then uploading and backing up to iCloud Photo Stream or Dropbox.
  • Organizing and rating images and assigning tags in the field, and integrating them later with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom on your computer.
  • Editing photos with Photogene, Snapseed, and other image adjustment tools.
  • Editing video clips in iMovie, creating slideshows, rough cuts, and more.
  • Using portfolio software to create and deliver impressive iPad presentations for prospective clients.
Photographers will learn other clever uses for iPads including triggering the camera shutter remotely, using the screen as a fill flash, calculating depth of field, tracking outdoor light conditions, storing camera manuals as PDFs for quick reference, and other handy at-your-fingertip resources to complement your particular shooting style.

A bonus online chapter with additional coverage for the new iPad–including iPhoto and Photoshop Touch apps–is included with purchase.

The iPad is a powerful photography tool and this guide will help every photographer take advantages of its full capabilities!

    I was amazed at the first edition of The iPad for Photographers:

    I was amazed at the first edition of The iPad for Photographers: Master the Newest Tool in your Camera Bag, and I put in an advance order for the second edition.  I have been looking for ways to continue to take photographs with my DSLR, using the digital workflow I have established for myself using Adobe Lightroom, but adding in an iPad instead of a laptop where possible, especially if I'm traveling.  Jeff Carlson has written a clear, intelligent and thorough book which gives me exactly the kind of information I am looking for, but also examines many other photographic possibilities for the iPad, including using it to take photographs, editing on it, creating portfolios and many other possibilities.  He recommends a number of apps which I had found on my own and found to be excellent. In the second edition, he has also added QR codes for easy access to all the apps which he suggests.  The book is a delight and extremely useful.

    This is a wonderful book that covers one of my favorite devices

    This is a wonderful book that covers one of my favorite devices with one of my favorite activities: iPod and digital photography. Ever since I first started using iPod (the first generation) I was immediately struck with its potential as a tool for digital photographers. Its relatively large screen for a mobile device and a very responsive touch interface make it seem like a product that was created precisely with digital photography in mind. However, due to its many hardware restrictions using it for anything except basic editing of the pictures taken by the iPad itself can be rather tricky. In terms of both its hardware capabilities and the new apps iPad has come a long way since those early days. Nonetheless, it still poses a challenge in terms of a smooth and fully-capable companion for serious and semi-serious photographers. 




    “The iPad for Photographers” is a great book for anyone interested in getting the best up-to-date advice on how to use iPad for digital photography. It is very clearly and accessibly written, and it has plenty of detailed step-by-step examples aimed at beginners. The book also covers a lot of material that even the seasoned photographers and/or iPad users could find very useful. For instance, it alerted me to several tricks, apps and devices that I didn’t know existed. The book is also very elegantly designed, with very clear color illustrations and photographs. These are both pedagogical as well as artful, adding to this book’s overall value. The author also has a very up-to-date site where all the latest information on this topic can be found. This is already book’s second edition, and it’s fair to assume when in the near future, when Apple comes with an even more advanced version of iPad, we’ll be treated to the third edition. Hopefully there is also a very powerful version of Photshop in the works for the improved hardware (one that can handle 20 megapixel RAW images for instance) – that is when I’ll seriously consider ditching photo editing on a computer and embrace iPad as the go-to photo companion for good.




    Great book that can be a very valuable resource for all photography/iPad enthusiasts.
