Mobile Photography – Portrait of an Artist – Eighth Video Showcase – TheAppWhisperer


Welcome to our eighth Portrait of an Artist Showcase! This Showcase complements our Portrait of an Artist Column edited by Jennifer Bracewell. Every two weeks Jennifer will review and curate work that has been submitted to our dedicated Flickr group. In addition, to creating a showcase video which features a sampling of submitted work, we will also highlight a few images that have caught our attention… offering some thoughtful commentary about technique, composition and subject matter.

This week Jennifer has selected her favourite images and reviewed them. Joanne has created the showcase.  We hope you enjoy this.

Mobile Movies Showcase – Week 47 – by Donna Donato


Welcome back to the forty-seventh article in the column, Mobile Movies. We at TheAppWhisperer have been inspired by the Flickr upgrade of 1 Terabyte of storage for everyone and have wanted to launch a mobile movie section for some time. Now seems to be perfect, the new Flickr upgrade will allow for a full three minutes of 1080p HD quality video per single film and you can have as many as you have storage space for. Each week I (you can find me on Flickr here) will curate the movie uploads to our new Flickr group MobileMoviesTheAppWhisperer – I will view all the videos uploaded and comment on the ones selected.

”The internet has created other crossroads for films and videos. Mobile devices have democratized not only photography but also video-making. The availability of apps that give digital video the appearance of analogy film, such as grainy black and white super-8, is exciting and important. Now anyone with the desire can make a home movie or ‘film’ and upload it to the web. It is interesting to see what stories and messages people are creating and disseminating.’

All of the entries were either shot or created on mobile devices.

Here is TheAppWhisperer’s video showcase for December 27, 2014. We would like to thank this week’s contributors: O ~, Armineh Hovanesian, Vanessa Vox, Hans Borghorst, Piel_Piel adentro, Ikebana Jen_Jennifer A Thomas, SLP…, Yannick_Brice_Yannick BRICE, giulia.baita_Giulia Baita and Jiri Dvorak for their submissions. Take a look at these latest gems; you’ll be glad you did. Please share our Column with your family and friends, encouraging them to create and submit their mobile videos. We are seeking all platforms, Windows, Android, iOS… Joanne Carter and I will also be scouring the web in search of mobiles movies to present to our readers.

iOS Photography App Tutorial – Imaengine – Illustrating your images – by Jerry Jobe


We are delighted to publish this comprehensive iOS Photography App Tutorial on a wonderful app, that you may not be aware of, Imaengine.  Jerry Jobe puts it through its paces, don’t miss this. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

Imaengine is free and you can download it here

“Is there a perfect app out there? An app that does everything it’s supposed to do, easily and quickly, yet fully adjustable by the user who wants more? No, I don’t think there is. There always seems to be something that doesn’t work quite right on your device.

So if I can’t have perfect, I’ll settle for fun. Apps that are full of different looks, and that spark creativity in different ways. That’s why I love Imaengine Vector Camera, by Luis Rivas, the app I’ll be covering today. As I take images through the different presets, I get ideas of how they can be used. Perhaps not just as they are, but combined with the original versions or other presets within Imaengine.

As the name implies, Imaengine creates vector output. Vector output can be “blown up” to any size, because the output is not pixels, but a mathematical description of the points and lines that make up the image. Increase the distance between the endpoints of all the lines in the image, and you’ve got a larger image, without having to turn one pixel into four. Increasing the pixels gives you jagged or blurred output, while changing the length of a line does not.

If you have math anxiety, however, fear not, because knowledge of how vector graphics are created is not necessary in order to have a lot of fun with Imaengine. Below you’ll see the opening splash screen. You’ve got four big buttons to get an input image into Imaengine. Camera and Real Time use the device’s camera, while Library gives you access to the Photo Library and Fresh is a quick way to get the most recent image on the Camera Roll.

Mobile Photography – A Picture’s Worth with Anette Schmitz-Millrath


A Picture’s Worth‘… is where we ask mobile photographers that have created powerful mobile photography/art to explain the processes they took. This includes their initial thoughts as to what they wanted to create, why they wanted to create it, how they created it, including all apps used and what they wanted to convey. We also ask these incredible artists to explain their emotions and how the image projects those feelings. We have published a few A Picture’s Worth articles recently, if you have missed those – please go here.

In this A Picture’s Worth today we asked Anette Schmitz-Millrath to tell us more about her image ‘Co-operation’, one that we included in a recent Flickr Group Showcase. Schmitz-Millrath has detailed her thoughts below, I’m quite sure you will enjoy learning more about this image.


“It only took a little to infect me with mobile art nine months ago and it felt magically surprising to enter the space of what’s called “the flow” everywhere I go.

I have a passion for the 19th century and steampunk-era as well hence I have a number of such images in my camera roll. I love mixing styles and so I often incorporate additional elements from science or nature to build surreal worlds.

As the entry point to “cooperation” I shot a drawing from a book by M. C. Waldrep which offers many illustrations of that style.

I always choose pictures to work with by intuition.

From the moment I saw the original image I had a special relationship to that illustration of a man. It is untitled and no information is offered. I called him John and this is my first cooperation with John in iphoneography.

John is an individual, mysterious precursor of a series I want to start. I don’t know him very well, but I come to learn more and more about him… 🙂

At first the original image was distressed, then mirrored with Orange Camera – which was the key to a huge transformation of this fellow.

An already blended nature shot was added in Union and I superimposed some geometric forms. The last edit I did in Snapseed to evoke some deeper vintage sentiment.

Yea, the process sounds somewhat technically, but I feel it wasn’t 🙂

The above mentioned flow struck me from the beginning. The picture evolved by itself.

It even took me quite some time to get together which apps I used in what sequence to create it.

Basically that’s it: I intuitively pick a source image *then some magic* et voilà!

John – I was delighted to make your acquaintance! And thank you for being so cooperative.
