Pete's helpful tips on using your Camera Lucida iPhone App

  1. Make sure your drawing surface is well lit. The iPhone's camera works best in bright indirect light.
  2. Zoom in so that your photograph fills as much as the iPhone's screen as possible. The iPhone has a small LCD, so make every pixel count.
  3. Play with the transparency to find the balance that works best for your subject and your drawing surface.
  4. Experiment with different colored paper. Try drawing with white charcoal on black paper... the results are amazing!
  5. Contact us with your ideas! The application has a ton of potential for growth and we'd love to hear your thoughts.
  6. Share your work! We'll be setting up a Flickr group soon, but in the meantime, feel free to email us photos of your work!
