Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial – Manipulating Sort in iColorama with Jerry Jobe

Share

We are so delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure.  Read Jobe’s thoughts about manipulating Sort in the hugely popular iOS app, iColorama. Take it away Jerry…..

(foreword by Joanne Carter)

“It’s been a while since I’ve covered any new features in iColorama, the premier mobile art app. The feature I will cover today, Form>Sort, was added a few years ago, and has been used repeatedly in brilliant works by many mobile artists. There aren’t a lot of modifications to the effect that can be accomplished in the Sort command itself, but I’ve discovered that you can make subtler, beautiful effects by modifying the image before applying sort, and I’d like to show you how to do that”.

My first image here used Sort on the background, and I added the flower, dog, and painted elements after.

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Armineh Hovanesian

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the sixth 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 Armineh Hovanesian, what a gift!

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

Weekend of Mobile Photography with Sukru Mehmet Omur from Turkey

Share

This weekend Sukru Mehmet Omur, an Award Winning Mobile Photographer chronicles his enviable journey with us. Upon viewing Omur’s text and images, the renderings of human emotions seamlessly weave into a graphic perspective. Personally, I sense happiness in Omur’s work and thus it allowed me to recall Henri Matisse’s manifest for happiness, that he created in the early years of the 20th century. Matisse was affluent so in 1905 he was bold enough to flaunt his happiness. He was ridiculed by Picasso and others for his ‘happy art’ but he stuck to his guns. Omur much like Matisse knows that happiness is a human right and he speaks up for it exquisitely.

If you would like to review others that we have published in our Weekend series, please go here. For now, enjoy! (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Making a mobile artwork for me always starts with an event that triggers. So it was this weekend…”

Mobile Art – Creative Tutorial – iColorama Procedural: Spinning Vinyl

Share

We are delighted to publish this creative tutorial using the app, iColorama to create a spinning vinyl record cover by Jerry Jobe, take a look…

 

“iColorama can do amazing things, with a little patience. I posted the image below in several iColorama Facebook groups, and it got a lot of response, so I’ll show you how to create a 45 RPM single, from scratch, in this great app.

This image used the app Over for text and Leonardo for placement onto a background and adding a shadow. Those tasks can be done in iColorama, but they are easier in other, specialised apps. While I don’t add text in the video, I do show you how to mask the disc onto a new background and create a drop shadow”.

“I started working with my iPhone in 2014, at the time I did not know that there were applications for retouching, collages, textures etc …! I was content with Instagram filters! The first application I used was Snapseed! I always use it as a basis for adjusting contrast, sharpness, balance etc …

For the paint effects I use icolorama, which is really very complete and the preface is very nice to use! I love to mix several applications, looking for combinations is an integral part of my work and it’s also what I like with the art Mobile! My work is very classic, I do a lot of landscapes and cityscapes! I really like using DistressedFX for textures and mextures for light and atmosphere! Formulas is also very interesting for some images that I put in double exposure”.
