All of the equipment in the world can’t make up for the fact that photography requires both a certain “eye” and a thorough understanding of how to tweak your camera accordingly for an image, whether it be adjusting ISO, exposure, shutter speed, etc.

Now, there’s a Dummies Guide-like iPhone app, Photo Academy, to teach all of the basics and then some for only $1. Hundreds of tips are on offer within the numerous tutorials so while you might be lacking a photography degree, you can still get your skills in check to be a street style photographer or someday—like maybe a week—the next Terry Richardson.
