Hello everyone, and welcome to another edition of our designer feature series here on The Digital Press blog in 2019 — Friday Favorites! This year, we are learning a bit more about each of our fantastic designers by having them share some of their favorite things with us each week (so much fun!).
This week, the spotlight is on the fantastic Nini Lee of ninigoesdigi! This is actually Nini’s third feature here on the blog (you can find her most recent feature article from July 2018 HERE… and/or her Foodie Friday article from February 2018 HERE w/ yummy food ideas/recipes).
This time around, in order to learn even more about Nini, we asked her to share one (or more) of her favorite things with us… and this is what she had to say…
“One of my favorite things is actually an iPhone app I use to be able to take better pictures. Last year, I realized how few pictures I actually took with my big camera… but I was taking a lot of pictures with my iPhone. But I felt a little disappointed that I couldn’t take more creative pictures with just my iPhone. That all changed, however, when fellow TDP designer Laura Passage told me about this app — Camera+2! It is a paid app ($2.99), but I don’t think that is too pricey and it is well worth it!
Here’s a look at the app info/logo (so you’ll have an easier time finding it, if you decide to go give it a look in the App Store)…
It didn’t take long for me to start playing with it… and while I still don’t think I’m using it to its full capabilities yet, I do enjoy the macro feature a lot! It has been a very useful companion on my walks as I like to snapshot things on my path so that I have an interesting shot to upload to Instagram, LOL (and of course, some material to scrapbook, too!).
Here are a few shots I took with it. What do you think?
In the second photo, the bokeh was originally a mistake(!). Before you touch the screen to adjust where to focus, it can sometimes appear blurry… but this time, I decided it was beautiful and took the shot!
The normal camera on your iPhone will automatically focus on a face or something in the picture… but with this app, you have more options to choose where to focus, which is so great! I try to update my Instagram feed regularly, so you can follow me there and discover Japan through my lens!
Although I’m sure there are other camera apps out there that are very nice, I am really liking this one! If you know of any other camera apps that I should check out, I’d love to hear about them, as well!”
This app sounds fantastic… I’m definitely going to check it out! I’m always looking for ways to improve my iPhone photography.
For those of you who aren’t already as familiar with Nini’s design work, she creates such colorful products! I love her kits. They are jam-packed with fantastic papers and elements. Her work is visually-compelling and her products practically scrap themselves!
Here is a sampling of some of the items you’ll find in the ninigoesdigi shop here at The Digital Press…
And to give you just a glimpse at her designs in action and demonstrate the beautiful pages you can create with them… here’s a look at just a few of my favorite projects from the gallery at TDP, which is always full of beauties from Nini’s shop!
Aren’t those layouts fantastic?!
Hopefully, today’s Friday Favorites article has given you even more insight into Nini’s personal style (and again, if you want to know even more about her — scroll up and use the links to her previous features here on TDP’s blog, where’s there’s lots of good stuff!).
