Our brilliant editor, Bobbi McMurry for our APPart Column has put together this stunning collage of all the images from this group that were awarded in the Mobile Photography Awards. What an incredibly talented group of artists we have!

This is what Bobbi had to say about it: So pleased to present a few of the outstanding images that were recognised in the 7th Annual Mobile Photo Awards – special thanks to Daniel Berman for creating and continuing to provide this venue for mobile artists and photographers to be seen. Also thanks to the judges who work tirelessly to cull the vast entries to make the selections you’ve no doubt seen by now. Lastly, a special thanks to our AppWhisperer who has devoted herself in ways most cannot imagine to providing a resource for all – from those who are just discovering mobile art to professional artists and photographers! Congratulations to everyone!”

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Eliza Badoiu Interview

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the second in our brand new series of interviews within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled ‘Seeing through the eyes…’. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there is a portrait of Mont, seen through the eyes of Eliza Badoiu! What a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group, that way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Mobile Videography – Cinematic ITALY – Shot on iPhone X in Brescia

Share

Matteo Bertoli is a videographer whom we have often featured and admired, not least with his latest film, filmed during the 2017 Christmas holidays when he went back home to Brescia in Italy.

“I decided to go out and shoot some clips with my iPhone X. Everything was handheld. No slider, no tripod, no lenses. Just my iPhone X and my hands. I used Filmic Pro to record every single clip. The app on the new iPhone X is absolutely perfect. No lags and no problems at all. 100% compatible with iOS 11. I recorded everything in 24p Filmic Extreme quality in 4k.

Everything was edited and graded in DaVinci Resolve 14 on my Macbook Pro 15″.

The music was scored by Martin Pankuweit for this particular video.

Take a look at this beautiful film below…

Something Different and Very Interesting – ‘Mobile’ Photography with Volvo and Photojournalist Barbara Davidson

Share

This is completely fascinating, at least to me and I like to think that it will be to our readers too. Barbara Davidson is a photojournalist with three Pulitzer Prizes to her name. She was asked by Volvo to test the new on-board Volvo XC60’s camera and sensors. The XC60 is a car that I personally adore, it has proven itself in so many ways and not least with Davidson herself, having survived a horrific car accident in one. With that in mind, she has created an incredible photo story promoting the brand through her art. She utilised the XC60 by composing a series of images, exploring the relationship between cars and humans and it is really unique. This is actually the world’s first photoshoot using a car as a camera and in many ways, typifies the ‘mobile’ element in Mobile Photography. These images were exhibited at Canvas Studios in Shoreditch, London and will be exhibited to other countries throughout this year.

Please take a look at this video, you do not have to be interested in cars, the Volvo brand or anything to do with that, to appreciate the art, statement and photo story that Davidson has created here. I am very proud of her.
