‘Multilocalism’ – Portraits of London by Andy Smith

Share

As a part of Adobe’s ‘Visual Trend Multilocalism’, they are exploring how increased global consciousness and a yearning for authentic, local experiences are influencing visual culture. For photographer and Adobe Stock Premium contributor Andy Smith, Multilocalism is all about connections: “Multilocalism, to me, is the fact that there’s such a diverse group of people in one place, but that one place is connected through common interests.”

Smith’s home town, London, is exemplary of this diversity, as I can very well vouch. London welcomes millions of immigrants from all over Europe, Asia, North America, the Middle East, and beyond. The unique stories and customs these individuals bring weaves a robust mosaic of heritage and culture.

Smith was tasked Andy with capturing this vibrant scene in an exclusive photoshoot for Adobe Stock’s Premium collection.

Take a look at the results below…

‘Make It. Photography’ with Elise Swopes by Josh Haftel

Share

Delighted to support and publish this new series with Josh Haftel, Product Manager for Adobe Lightroom Mobile, US. As our relationship deepens, look for more insight and inspiration as Haftel and I share like minds. Shout out and thanks to Theano Nikitas for putting us together.

This is an evolving show, pushing the boundaries of Mobile Photography. It is a great and worthy project, a primer for those whom are still on the fence regarding mobile photography and a sustaining reminder for those already familiar with it. Ultimately this is a show that’s as linguistically and visually disruptive than its surface might suggest. Post watching, you’ll feel steadier, more determined, strong and proud!

In this interview you’ll see how Elise Swopes, has made an entire, full time career from snapping pics with just her phone. Now, she works with major brands. Find out how Swopes went from creating Kid Pix on an old iMac to rapping at SXSW to 272K followers on Instagram. Haftel gets the inside info from Elise on location from NYC, next on Make It.

Mobile Photography & Art – My Top Five Apps by David Hayes from Milford, Ohio, United States

Share

We are revitalising our Top Five Apps section to our Photo App Lounge column. This a section within TheAppWhisperer where we ask highly accomplished mobile photographers and artists to list their top five apps and to explain why they have selected them. Kicking us off today is accomplished and highly respected mobile photographer and artist David Hayes from Milford, Ohio, United States.  Hayes used to be a major editor to TheAppWhisperer and we miss him very much, but viewing his photographs and reading his fine words, we can tell that his time away, has been very well spent. We hope one day he will return to us, he knows the door is held firmly open. For now, though, please familiarise yourselves with this wonderful author and artist’s work as follows… (foreword by Joanne Carter)

“Hello everyone! It’s been awhile since I had a chance to write for The AppWhisperer so I’m excited to have this chance to share with you my “Top Five Apps”!

When I wrote a regular column for The AppWhisperer I truly was an app junkie. If there was a new app I had to have it! In time my iPhone and iPad were filled with hundreds of apps…most of which I only used once or twice. Didn’t matter…had to have them! Now days I have slimmed this number down considerably so much so that picking 5 apps was easy. The quality and scope of apps today has increased dramatically as of late that one doesn’t need that many to be able to create dynamite images! My go-to-top-5-apps include Photoshop Express, Handy Photo, Stackables, Distressed FX, and Snapseed. Let’s go through my typical workflow to see how I might use each of these apps!”

Adobe brings to life the 100-year old brushes of Edvard Munch and Competition

Share

Adobe has today announced an innovative, first of its kind project, The Hidden Treasures of Creativity, which will digitally recreate the over 100-year old paint brushes of Edvard Munch to inspire a new generation of master painters. In collaboration with The Munch Museum in Oslo and award winning Photoshop brush maker Kyle T. Webster, Adobe has digitally replicated seven of Munch’s original brushes and made them available in Creative Cloud for Photoshop and Sketch users worldwide.

With the support of the Munch Museum’s conservation experts, Munch’s original brushes were photographed in 360 degrees using ultra-high-resolution cameras, which captured all angles and details to create an accurate three dimensional representation. Munch’s artistic style and brushwork were closely analysed by specialists, and combined with data about the brushes’ attributes, including physical properties such as flexibility and bristle type.

The process of turning the data and scans into Photoshop brushes was then performed by Kyle T. Webster, regarded by many as the world’s foremost authority on Photoshop brushes. In collaboration with the museum experts, Kyle has been able to capture the exact shape and performance attributes of each of the brushes, which are available to download for use in Photoshop and Sketch from today.

Simon Morris, Senior Director of Campaign Marketing at Adobe said: “There are certain pieces of art we all know and love. These works transcend time, living on to influence modern creatives, and society as a whole. But we rarely think about the tools that were used to create those masterpieces.”

“The Hidden Treasures of Creativity is all about bringing these tools back to life and placing them in the hands of a new generation of artists. Institutions such as The Met in New York and The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam are already making their collections available online to help keep classic works of art in the public eye. This innovative project is an extension of this movement, making it possible for today’s artists to rediscover and treasure the brush of a master and use it to create their very own masterpiece.”

Adobe will also be running a contest over the next month between 15th June – 14th July 2017.

This is to encourage Photoshop and Sketch users to make use of these exclusive brushes to create their own versions of Munch’s most famous and iconic painting, ‘The Scream’. Edvard Munch made four different versions of the artwork and 80 years on, Adobe is challenging artists worldwide to create ‘The 5th Scream’.

Entrants will be able to submit their masterpiece by uploading their artwork to Behance with the tag #MunchContest for the opportunity to have their work of art displayed in The Munch Museum in Oslo and as part of a special Behance collection. In addition, the grand winner will receive a cash prize of €6,000 and an all-expenses paid trip to Adobe MAX, the world’s leading creativity conference, taking place in Las Vegas from 18th-20th October 2017 among other prizes. Submissions will be judged on originality, artistic composition, consistency with the theme and creativity by a dedicated panel of judges. The brushes can be downloaded online here with supporting tutorials being made available as part of the campaign. Winners of the contest will be announced on 28th July 2017.
