Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial – Formulas Photo Lab Effects: A Beautiful Mess

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our viewing pleasure. This time Jobe features Forumulas Photo Lab Effects and the outcome is not entirely favourable….  (foreword by Joanne Carter). Take it away Jerry…

“New apps by established developers can be missteps for a variety of reasons. Last time I covered Satur8, by the developer of Decim8. Satur8 is hard to control, has no explanation of blend modes, and has not been touched since initial release.

Today’s app is Formulas, by Samer Azzam. Azzam has written the fabulous Stackables app, as well as a highly respected camera replacement app (Pro Cam XL) and a “tiny planet” video app (Living Planet). Formulas is positioned to be a “light” version of Stackables, the excellent texture app that I covered in a three-part series about a year ago. Stackables required a three-part tutorial because it is such a robust app, with many controls and options. Stackables offers layering, which allows for multiple textures to be combined and saved off as a preset, or formula. The steep learning curve means that some people would appreciate a shortcut: let others create these presets or formulas and let a user apply those formulas to their own images.

So I understand the reasoning behind Formulas, and, as you’ll see, I appreciate the results. It’s the execution that I find to be a major misstep”.

Forumulas retails for $2.99/£1.99 and you can download it here.

Mobile Photography – A Picture’s Worth with Rino Rossi – TheAppWhisperer

Share

A Picture’s Worth‘… is where we ask mobile photographers that have created powerful mobile photography/art to explain the processes they took. This includes their initial thoughts as to what they wanted to create, why they wanted to create it, how they created it, including all apps used and what they wanted to convey. We also ask these incredible artists to explain their emotions and how the image projects those feelings. We have published a few A Picture’s Worth articles recently, if you have missed those – please go here.

In this A Picture’s Worth today we asked Rino Rossi to tell us more about her image ‘Discrete Machine’, she has done so beautifully below…

 

“I can only bless my first, casual encounter with the iPhone camera, which gradually became a machine to convert dreams. At first the only Hipstamatic, then countless other Apps (especially when used in combination) have helped me to discover “the visions beyond the vision”. Visions which, if combined with the emotional sphere of music (my other passion), lead me to a parallel universe of play, but at the same time, terribly intense, sometimes rich of colors, sometimes monochrome. Living in a country along the sea, I cannot  be influenced by the images that, since childhood, have crossed my eyes. The iphoneography offers me a great opportunity to filter them and return them laden with meanings and messages dream.

“Discrete Machine” is exactly a shining example : a railing on the boardwalk is shot with the iPhone native camera, chromatically and geometrically correct with Snapseed, dismembered by Decim8 and finally enriched with textures of Stackables. Citing Stanley Kubrick: “The real is fine, but the interesting is better.”
