There are so many amazing photographic techniques to enhance the iPhone camera all available in various apps. You can apply photo effects, create mixes of still & moving images, record gapped video segments, and so much more. FocusTwist may be the most intriguing photo app to date as it gives you extremely powerful functionality that couldn’t be easier to use. You can capture photos that can be refocused later on, and this idea has been previously reserved for the $400 Lytro camera. Now, you can have that functionality on your iPhone for just $2, minus the ability to shift perspective that comes with the Lytro camera.
FocusTwist works best with an object in the foreground that is 3-5 inches away from the camera, and any other object in the foreground. You can truly appreciate FocusTwist with multiple elements to focus on, all at different depths. The only limitation is your own creativity to think of how anything you’re seeing could be captured best with the FocusTwist app. The app takes a few seconds to capture the image, and you try to keep your iPhone and objects still during that time. Then, you have the result with the ability to tap anywhere on the photo to adjust the focus to that point.
It’s wonderful to see your photos completely transform with a single tap, and you’ll just want to share, with social connectivity built-in. You can share to Twitter, or simply the FocusTwist network, which includes a main feed of twisted creations from other users. It’s quite enjoyable to just change the focus of photos shared by others. You can use this app time, and time again as it can completely change the way you think of photographing a particular scene. Getting the focus just right before snapping a photo doesn’t always work, but now you can change the focus afterwards to get the image just right.
FocusTwist ($1.99, Universal) is a brilliant idea, with powerful functionality that is executed wonderfully to give all iPhone owners access to a whole new photographic technique. FocusTwist is a should buy for a great twist on traditional photography.
