I’m a street photographer. What I most love about my profession is that it allows me to shoot anytime, anywhere. From big-city streets to rural dirt roads, there are great images waiting to be found at every turn. I liken it to a treasure hunt; the treasures are everywhere if we choose to see them.
Since triggering the shutter at the right moment is so important to the success of my work, I tend to put the odds in my favor by shooting more. The more I shoot, the “luckier” I get; it can mean the difference between capturing an average picture or a five-star masterpiece.
But shooting is only half the battle. The secret to success is in the editing.
How do you choose “the best” of the many images you’ve captured?

Thanks to a major overhaul, the Edit button in the new Photos app for iOS 8 actually means something. What was once just a cropper, magic wand, and handful of subpar filters has blossomed into a decent image editor.
To demonstrate, I’m going to start with a landscape shot displaying on my iPad mini, then edit it using only the tools in the new Photos app. Let’s see how it turns out.

An iPad in your photo bag gives you more than just a way to check your email when you’ve finished shooting. In Part 1 of this series, I pointed out how the iPad can help you research photo locations. In Part 2, I demonstrated how valuable the iPad can be for importing and reviewing photos while you’re still capturing them on location.
But what happens after the shots are captured? Traditionally, you’d have to wait until you could transfer the photos from your memory cards to a computer for further work. With the iPad, though, you can get a jump on important post-processing tasks like rating and applying keywords while you’re still in the field and your memory’s fresh—and so they don’t loom over you when you get home.
