Amazing lists of things to picture

I'm new in to the realm of photography after a 30 year hiatus with point and shoot after film photography in high school. I am so involved with learning the hdlr that the Shot List has made me go have fun with my photography! I can feel small with all the chapters of amazing places my photography class pictures have been taken. I picked Shot List "City" and made a scavenger hunt out of my own town! Not just for vacations! Thank you Mr Velasco!

This app helped me to create outstanding shots that I would never have thought of on my own. It's easy to use and the information was interesting. It was easy to keep in mind while shooting. I was able to capture the essence of my last trip to Spain to enjoy over and over and share with friends. I only wish I could create categories of my own.

Essential App

I’ve used Ralph Velasco’s My Shot Lists app for a couple of years now and have found it to be an essential reference tool for any kind of travel-related photography. It helps assure that the shots you return with are the shots you wanted to get.

The detail and cross-referencing make this a sophisticated but very easy to use app for both the amateur photographer/traveler and the professional alike.

Highly Recommended
