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.

APPart Mini #3 Featuring Mobile Artist Aldo Pacheco / Sprawling The Fingers On City

Share

Please enjoy our third post to our new section within our APPart Column entitled – APPart Mini. This time our editor Bobbi McMurry talks with Aldo Pacheco to find out more about his work, over to you Bobbi. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

Apps: Diana, Superimpose, Formulas, Retouch

“This piece had my full attention the moment I saw it! Aldo did such an expert job here creating a story that is both simple and complex. The background comprised of a muted photo of the Guggenheim Museum in New York. He has strategically placed a very bold image of the back of a child poised as if drawing on a wall. It’s always amazing to me how strong a figure can speak when shot from the back  done well, it’s instantaneously captivating. Aldo then very strategically paced a childlike drawing front and center, which could seem random if it weren’t such a calculated and integral part of the story. It’s the brightest element in the piece, with a drop shadow under the cloud forms pushing it further into the viewer’s eyes.

As a parent, I look at this piece as a comment on the importance of cultivating creativity in our children. They may or may not grow to have their work exhibited in the likes of the Guggenheim Museum, but no matter, creativity will help them in anything and everything they do.

Aldo was very generous in sharing his process and apps used in creating this fabulous image, enjoy!”
