To start the photo session photographer needs to access the Shutter App Portal using the Chrome or Safari browsers on computer or laptop (we do not support mobile browsers for the time being)
Log in to the Portal with your Google or Facebook account. The service is absolutely free at the moment: http://web.theshutter.app/
Photographer can send to model a link to download the application: start.theshutter.app
. It's free and available for iOS and Android.
In the Shutter App Portal Photographer needs to Click "Start new session", enter your Model's ID and name (optional) to send the request and start the shoot. When the photo shoot starts the photographer will get full control of the model's camera
during the photo session.Security notice.
The access to the cameras, microphone and speakers is provided for the time of the session only. After the Shutter App is closed, the access to cameras, mic and speakers is restricted automatically. The results of the photo session will be stored in a protected cloud, which is available only for the photographer through the Shutter App Portal. Shutter App stores only photos, made by the photographer, no sound or other data.Running the photoshoot.
After the photo session has started one will see the video stream (in Safari browser one needs to press "Play" icon). The quality of video stream doesn't affect the quality of pictures. The quality of the photos will be as high
as smartphone's camera supports.
As a photographer you will get access to a list of controls. Choose which camera on the photo to use, use auto focus or switch it to focus on click or manual focus, control the exposure and white balance.
During the shoot you can share any preview with your model. Once you share they will see the picture on their screen.
Turn on your web camera. We support face to face video stream! Find the button under the shutter button to turn your webcam on so your model will be able to see you.
