Describe the target audience for your icon design

everyone who is interested in photography.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your icon design?

- simplicity
- great design
- user needs to know, already at first glance, the app has something to do with photography
and it would be great if the feature of the app (making action seaquence photos, you can see examples on this URL: http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/25-beautiful-examp...) is implemented in the icon, but only if this is possible in a simple design.

How many different icons do you need designed?

I need 2 different icons but they need to be almost similar.
One is for a free version of the app (Lite), the other one is for a paid version (Pro)

Do you have specific size requirements for the icons?

Vector format
1024 x 1024 iTunes Artwork

What icon design styles do you like?

I don't have any specific examples in mind, but be creative and keep it simple.

What colors do you want to see in your icon design?

I don't have any color preferences, but I like some experimenting with shadows. (not a requirement)
and don't use too many different colors.

What colors do you NOT want to see in your icon design?

pink and shiny/flashy colors
NO vintage look

What adjectives should best describe your icon design?

stylish, simplicity, modern, unique (stand out of the crowd-look), eye for detail

Do you have additional requirements or links you'd like to share?

- The words 'lite' and 'pro' for resp. the free and pro version of the app can be used in the design but this is not a requirement, but besides these words the icon may not contain any other text.
- NO vintage look
