Joseph Linaschke otherwise known as PhotoJoseph – a colleague I used to work with demonstrates how to get the most from your RAW photography on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Very interesting interview with David Hockney discussing ‘drawing on glass’, in which he means iPads. He also demonstrates his passion for portraiture art as opposed to photography and not least, he mentions the Clintons, Churchill, Hilter and smoking. Quite a lot covered in this 2 minute clip by Guardian Australia at his current exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. Take a look…

The launch of a new free universal iOS app from Blurb enables you to create a photo book directly from your mobile device. Some of the feature highlights include the facility to pull images directly from your iOS albums into your book where ‘autoflow’ places them into pages. There are three different page layouts to allow you to customise your book, two sizes and two cover types. Captioning is another useful option to add to your images.
Filmmaker Matteo Bertoli recently purchased a Google Pixel smartphone and spent the weekend testing the camera in Park Cit and Salt Lake City downtown.
For this video Matteo used a Rhino slider and the Shoulderpod S1 for handheld footage. He did not use any lenses or gimbal. He edited in FCPX and graded in DaVinci Resolve. He also used Filmic Pro and the native camera app to record the entire video.
Check out the video here, it is incrediby impressive!
News just in from my friends and colleagues at Leica (not mobile but very interesting), Leica Camera AG, has announced that it is to become Sky Arts’ exclusive technical provider for ‘Master of Photography’, the first TV talent show dedicated to photography.
Scheduled to be broadcast from 21 July in the UK and Ireland on Sky Arts, in Italy on Sky Arte HD, and in Germany and Austria on Sky Arts HD, Master of Photography is a new, unique international production that aims to promote photography in all its forms of expression.
Hosted by Isabella Rossellini, the programme will involve 12 young talents – either amateur or pro photographers – from all over Europe. During the eight episodes in the series, competitors will face challenges both in the studio and outdoors, touring several European locations from Rome to Ireland and London to Berlin. A jury comprising three globally-renowned photographers and experts, Oliviero Toscani, Simon Frederick and Rut Blees Luxemburg, will select the first Master of Photography, with the winner receiving a prize of 150,000 euros plus the opportunity to host their first solo exhibition, with publication of a dedicated catalogue.
Each participant will be equipped with professional Leica products including cameras, lenses and accessories. With products from Leica’s current S, SL, and M-System ranges plus the Leica Q – the company’s full-frame compact camera – the contestants will be perfectly prepared for any photographic challenge that comes their way.
