I absolutely love photography, especially taking photos on my iPhone. Not only is it super convenient since I have my phone with me at practically all times, but it's super easy to edit photos in a flash. Here are my favorite photo editing/photography apps and an explanation on how I edit my photos! This is a pretty lengthy post since I included a ton of screenshots, but I hope it is helpful for those who wanted to see!
I love this app for so many reasons. Although it isn't free (it costs $0.99), it's totally worth the money. It's super easy to use and it comes with a ton of awesome filters. My personal favorites are "relic," "idaho," and "brightfire." It's also super easy to adjust saturation, fade, sharpness, etc...

|This is the photo after I edited it. I applied the filter "relic" and I also edited the exposure and clarity.|
|Afterlight is great is because you can add the white border to photos so they don't get cropped on the Instagram app.|
This app is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. It's free in the app store, but I'd suggest looking at some of the filters they have available for purchase. I also like this app because you can share photos to your "grid" and then others can go look at them. For example, here is my grid!

A Beautiful Mess
I usually use this app for its cool fonts. Whenever I want to make a quote look neat, I'll type it up on ABM. You can also use this app to make collages and to add text to existing photos! It's worth the $0.99 for sure.

|If you want to create something instead of editing a photo, you can choose a color as your background.|
|I created this by using the "amatic" font and the "my favorite" phrase. I also added a border.|
