Portrait Classroom iPad version reviews:

  “Portrait photography is a snap with an iPad app” … “Perfect for parents, amateurs and those wanting to shift their camera out of ‘automatic’ mode and get a little creative, Portrait Classroom will provide you with loads of skills and tips.” from Babyology

  “One of the first ones that is starting to ‘get it’ when it comes to putting some educational content on the iPad. They’ve got a menu that allows you to navigate to the tutorials, a glossary of terms, resources, contact and an about page.  Each of the tutorials has text, sample images and they give you the equipment and settings that were used. Not too bad. So, my recommendation? Worth the $1.99 if you are new to photography and interested in portrait shooting.” from Dave Warner on LensFlare35

“The interface is so easy, clean, and well, let’s face it, awesome. … Click on the camera and you’re about to see some settings. I know how beginning photogs love to know settings you’re using! While each tutorial is carefully written and thoughtfully explained, you always have the Glossary to turn to. Want to REALLY know what that word means? Now you can. All in one easy spot. Kim provides you with resources, including what she has in her camera bag. Her go-to props and accessories to help her with newborn photography as well as other child set ups let you know that you don’t need a lot to really be effective. I was impressed with this app. I think if you’re a new photographer, starting out, this is a great way to learn about how to tackle the infant and child world.”   From Pink Ink Studios (now sadly closed)

And reviews by iTunes users have included:

“Great app”  by Big Uncle Kyle: “This is a great app to assist with photo’s of children. There are many helpful pointers regarding SLR settings (which confuse the heck out of me) and lighting. The photos my nephew turned out awesome.” 5 stars

“I learned so much”  by Pamela Velez: “In just the first five minutes, I learned so much! I will be practicing with my grandson!” 5 stars

“Really helpful” by Onesffox: “I have young kids and am just learning photography. This app is really useful. It tells you how to set up, and process various poses and styles of photos – I’ve used it to get several great photos of my kids! Thanks for all the ‘insider tips’!” 5 stars

“Great app!!” by SDFotofan: “Lots of great info!! Especially useful before and after photos…. Looking forward to the next edition.” 5 stars
