I was so delighted to receive a wonderful message a few days ago from the very talented mobile photographer Jill Lian. One of her images is to be featured in Apple’s new Shot on iPhone series with the emphasis on Colour.

The campaign — entitled Colors, by the Apple creative team — can be found in what has got to be one of the broadest-reaching art exhibits in the world, splashed across billboards in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Russia, UAE, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Korea, China, Malaysia, New Zealand and Thailand.

Apple explained that this campaign has been built to showcase bright and vibrant colours allowing viewers to see around them on a daily basis.  

Huge congratulations to Jill Lian and thank you so much for your kind message, which I have attached below. These are the messages that I truly love to receive, thank you!

I have listed below the locations that this image will be posted to.

Streets Ahead – Women’s Mobile Street Photography – New Challenge – ‘Panning’

Share

We are proud to announce a new Challenge to our Women’s Mobile Street Photography Collective – Streets Ahead.  The details are below and the selected images will be portrayed in a showcase later in the month, for an example of that, please see here.

CHALLENGE 13: Panning

Deadline 20 July 2016

Time for a new challenge. Panning on the street with your mobile phone. Panning is not about movement, it is movement, and that’s what makes it challenging: it’s the following of a moving subject along its plane of motion. Most often it’s a horizontal plane with the subject a runner, a rider and so on. Essentially, you should be striving to keep something within the picture sharp. Try to decide which element of the image you want to keep sharp.

To help you with this challenge we suggest you download Slow Shutter Cam. If you set the shutter speed within the app to 0.5 seconds, for faster moving subjects, you’ll get some great effects. Freeze Control is available in Motion Blur and Light trail modes. As the developers of Slow Shutter Cam explain “the Freeze control allows you to put more or less emphasis on the first or last frame of a capture session. Moving the slider to the left will put more emphasis on the first frame, while moving the slider to the right will put more emphasis on the last frame”.

A recap of the rules and procedure for entry:

1. Maximum of three entries per person – please do not upload any other images to this group as it has been created specifically for the challenge only. The admins will delete images that are not relevant.

2. Upload your images to the group on flickr that has been created specifically for the challenge entries.

3. Please label your image ‘Challenge 13: Panning’

4. Photos from a mobile device only please.

5. As this group is to highlight women photographers, we will only accept work shot by women.

Art with an iPhone by Kat Sloma – Book Review and Competition!

Share

“This books passes muster as a great instructional tool for the novice mobile artist – A Classic”, Joanne Carter, 2016

Recently in a cafe I was hungrily perusing ‘Art with an iPhone – A Photographer’s Guide to Creating Altered Realities’ by American Fine Art Photographer, Writer and Instructor, Kat Sloma, when a woman I knew touched me on the shoulder and asked what I was reading. I considered this question as I glanced up and around at all the other customers in the cafe and noticed that most of them were engrossed with their iPhones, possibly (hopefully) apping images. ‘It’s a book about creating art with an iPhone’, I replied. She looked surprised and then asked if she could join me. This then became the perfect way to review this book. I explained that ‘Art with an iPhone’ is a great learning platform for newcomers to this wonderful artform to develop their skills, my friend became hooked and is now a great new mobile artist!

Sloma explains, That’s not photography,” the long-time photographer commented to me, “I don’t know what it is, but it’s not photography…

A few years ago, as I started to transition to my iPhone camera and apps to create images, I got that a lot. It was a bit confusing, truth be told. I knew my images did not always end up looking like what most people expected a photograph to look like, but how could it not be photography? I was still using a camera; still using all of the skills I had learned over the years to see and frame and expose images. I just took them a little further in post-processing than I used to. I didn’t try to portray reality any more.

I went through a bit of an identity crisis after hearing enough of those comments. If it’s not photography, then what is it? If I’m not a photographer, then who am I? I loved what I was doing, and I wrestled with this question for a while, coming to a simple conclusion that took me back to where I started. Yes, I am a photographer, because what I do starts with an image captured with a camera.  The starting image is crucial to my creative process. Without it, my art doesn’t exist.

I now call what I do “altered photography” because I want to signal that it’s not what people typically expect photography to look like, but I also want the people who see my work to know it started as photograph. I am proud of my art form, and the wonderful history of this fantastic medium. I believe what I (and so many others!) are doing with photographic images on mobile devices is one more step in the evolution of the photograph. We are, one image at a time, expanding the definition of photography.

But right now we are in a time of transition. Not everyone is on board with this point of view. If you ask other photographers, yourself even, “Is it photography or not?” I would expect to hear wildly different reactions”.

“Sometimes I start putting together a tutorial and think it will be a simple matter of throwing up a few screenshots and cruising to some neat images. When I stopped getting screenshots for Glitché, I found I had 90 images and videos. It is a much deeper app than I gave it credit for being.

Glitché sells for 99 cents on the App Store, and there is an Android version. It works on both the iPhone and iPad in portrait mode. I will be showing screens from the iPad version. I’ll show you how to bring images into Glitché and many of the effects here in part one; output , the remaining effects, and video will be shown in part two”.
