8 mm Vintage camera (1.99, Nexvio). This app lets you shoot retro-looking videos with your iPhone and apply effects to existing videos, Barnett said.
“It looks very real and retro and gritty,” he said. “It's obviously not for everything.”
• Pro tip: In this app, you can choose to record audio or mute the sound for making a silent movie or add a projector sound, Barnett said.
And Barnett's general iPhone tips are basic ones for beginners: 1) Get closer to your subject instead of zooming in, which reduces the quality and size of your images. 2) Think about lighting — find the most interesting lighting outdoors at sunrise and sunset — and your photos will improve. 3) Pick your best photos on the iPhone and print them: “Most people have years of digital images and very, very few actual printed copies,” he said.
