NATIONAL PHOTO MONTH, DAY 14
First, please excuse the quality of these photos. Then, let me explain.
My iPhone 4 takes bad photos. The problem simply couldn't be me, right? Add to the subpar camera on my phone the fact that Barney isn't a cooperative subject and I'm lucky to have gotten this shot. Barney likes to jump right up and run over for a hug when I get down at his level. It's a miracle he was still long enough for this snapshot.
Barney's pal in the foreground was added with Mutual of Omaha's My Wild Kingdom app. This adventure app can be downloaded free from the app store to any iPhone or iPad. And, it's a hoot to use! You can go on adventures, earn badges and add wild animals to any of your photos with this app.
Make your animals various sizes, change orientation or angle and use filters to create a classic film look. These features all work with your video, too.
I added this penguin and his melting ice in front of the fireplace in the dark hotel lobby on one of our recent weekend trips.
These are my first attempts at using the app and, admittedly, aren't the best representation of what the app has to offer. I haven't had a chance to try some of its other features.
Check out the My Wild Kingdom app if you want something fun to do with your kids this summer. The whole family will have a blast taking quirky photos with this awesome tool.
