Great Photography Apps for I phone Users

I’ve always been fascinated with taking pictures and editing them; more like me taking ten million selfies and photos of myself! LOL.  A couple of years ago, I saw a frog on the side of my house and back then I had an Android Samsung Galaxy and decided to take a picture of it.  I am very fascinated with taking unique and nature pictures as well as pictures of flowers.

I am always downloading different photo editing apps to change the filter and effect on them for a more artistic look.  Now that I’ve crossed over to the I phone Apple side for the last two years and with a recent new upgrade, I’m always in portrait mode taking precise pictures.  I discovered this amazing article on top photo editing apps that you should use for photos if you enjoy taking different pictures like myself.  Are you ready for some fun and liven up your photos a little bit more?

Graphic Designer Tyra Grayson is on the Rise to a Creative Stardom!

” Very eager, motivated, determined, caring, and loving,”

is how Tyra describes herself.

What do you call a bomb creative direction with style and great fashionable taste? 

Tyra Grayson, the next superstar to stardom in the graphic design business!  It’s not just her whit or her just holding a camera and telling a music artist to pose or a model to hold a specific prop, but it’s about her creativeness and unique taste for photography!

Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Tyra is attending Full Sail University online majoring in Graphic Design.  With diving into the creative side for only one year, she has accomplished so much with her work.  Opportunities came knocking real fast as she has already had the pleasure of shooting local models and artists and doing graphic designs for music artists and businesses to help manage and build up her brand. Everyone has to start from somewhere in life to become who they want to be in their passion.

 “I started off learning how to print t-shirts with my granddad, he taught me how to design the shirt before printing it. I got fascinated with the design process and started using Photoshop. He also told me to use his camera and try to do something with it, and the rest is history. I was a rapper before this, so I owe it all to him for introducing me to this, he was also a musician, so the creativity flowed in the family.”

Tyra has shot for artists such as Moneybagg Yo, Rich Homie Quan and Boosie Badazz.

Photography has its own art of style, but what Tyra is known for best is her vintage style of photography.  She uses different locations and props such as smoke bomb and masks to execute her style of portraits.  One of her biggest accomplishments was designing her first mixtape; front and back for Birmingham artist YF Tadoe called “No Investors”

 

“I see myself being the biggest designer, photographer, and creative director in the music industry. Working with companies such as Atlantic Records, IHeartRadio, Spotify, as well as working with Grammy-award winning artists.”

She has created her own lane and her own name for herself; TGDShotIt or TGD branching out for different opportunities and many more to come.  Everyone has something or someone to keep them motivated and humbled while achieving their goals and dreams.

“Anyone who has helped me with a photography project. My friends, family, other creatives, and the thought that if I ever gave up on this, that’s one less creative that someone may need. So I always wake up motivated with the thought that an artist or business may need my services and that I have the chance to get better.”

Someday she plans to collaborate with award-winning artists such as Troye Sivan, Khalid, Ariana Grande, Twenty-One Pilots, Kevin Gates, Drake and more.  She is on the rise to a creative stardom!
