‘Brought to Light’ – Mobile Photography / Art Interview with Sean Hayes

Share

Sean Hayes is something of a cultural artist crossing geographic boundaries, one who transforms cultural landscapes. His art is an experience, his portraiture and street work allows for a direct and intimate interaction with the viewer. The meticulous staging of light within his images fills the air with an awareness of living. Hayes’ landscape photography owes its eloquence to its matter-of-fact nature. Everything is observed, Hayes’ images carry the romantic undertow of both myth and mystery. Hayes achieves an engaging style with his art, he not only manages to cross physical borders between countries but I feel, he has a sense of the emotional boundaries between people, his portraiture demonstrates a level of empathy with the subject that brings us into another’s world, another’s pain, another’s joy.

This is our new interview section for mobile photographers and mobile artists and we hope to be filling it very soon with vast explosions of thought and imagery. These questions are designed to explore the artist behind the work, to get to know them a little more intimately.

We recently published our first ‘Brought to Light’ Interview with Andrea Bigiarini, Founder of the New Era Museum and FIPA Florence International Photography Awards as well as writer, author, Imagineer and digital artist, if you missed that, please go here. We then went on to publish an instinctively gifted artist, Ile Mont, if you missed that please go here. Further we published our interview with Roger Guetta, please see here, Rad Drew, please go here to read that and most recently Gianluca Ricoveri (please go here to read that one).

“Our record sales and strong margins drove all-time records for net income and EPS in spite of a very difficult macroeconomic environment,” said Luca Maestri, Apple’s CFO. “We generated operating cash flow of $27.5 billion during the quarter, and returned over $9 billion to investors through share repurchases and dividends. We have now completed $153 billion of our $200 billion capital return program.”

Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial – GeometriCam: Fine control, but to what end?

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look at the new app GeometriCam. Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter). Take it away Jerry…

“Thanks to the exposure given to my tutorials by TheAppWhisperer, I occasionally am contacted by developers who want me to do an article on their new app. Such was the case with this week’s app, GeometriCam, and its developer, Giuseppe Capozzo.

Sometimes I will turn down such requests. I want my articles to come from the same place as the average user of the app, and the average user does not get free apps. I accepted a free copy of GeometriCam, but informed Signore Capozzo that he may not get the review that he expects. As I wrote to him, “I’m not a big fan of turning images into shapes; I haven’t reviewed some of the big ones like Percolator and Trimaginator, and my reviews of XnShape and Part were not glowing.” He was fine with me being honest in my review/tutorial. That’s what I like to see – a developer confident in his or her app.

So let’s take a look”.

GeometriCam retails for $1.99/£1.49 and you can download it here.
