New Article: iPad Photography in the Field, Part 1

I have a new article up at, the first in a series of “iPad Photography in the Field” pieces that takes you on location to see how an iPad is useful for photographers.

Part 1, “Prepare for Adventure,” is all about the preparation: Using an iPad (and/or iPhone) to scout photo locations, plan ahead, learn which direction the light will be coming from, and more.

If you like the work I do, please consider signing up for my low-volume newsletter that I use to announce new projects, items, and giveaways that I think my readers would be interested in.

  1. I’m still trying to figure out how to download my photos from my iPad to my laptop. Still haven’t got it. So I use my camera.


    1. Do you mean photos you’ve captured using the iPad’s camera? Connect the iPad to your laptop via a sync cable, and your computer will see the iPad as if it were just another camera. You can then import photos the way you would from a camera or memory card. Or, I use an app called PhotoSync to transfer images wirelessly. (It’s great for dealing with screenshots.) They can be sent directly to the computer (after installing a PhotoSync utility on the computer), or uploaded to Dropbox (among other options). Hope this helps!


      1. OK. So I have to get a sync cable. Thank you. I edit my photos on a laptop which is a dinasour, so I don’t have apps. I use Adobe PS. Thank you for your response. You helped me, yes!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

      2. The sync cable is the USB cable that came with your iPad, so you don’t need to get a new one.

      3. Hmmm…..OK. I’ll try it. Thank you.
